    Default condo vs landed property choice

    I am really very curious, will anyone choose condo/apt over landed properties assuming not much price differential? It seems like landed is the only way to go and those who cannot afford landed will buy condo? If one can afford landed, they will definitely choose landed for every reasons??

    This is an interesting nugget.
    All my friends who grew up in landed (and who can afford landed) are staying in condos. And these bunch add up to ten or so.

    there are always various lifestyle considerations. capital appreciation (ie money) is not everything.

    if you stayed in a landed before, you'll yearn for a condo. And vice versa.

    Too many pros and cons of each. (maybe get a townhouse in a condo)

    I've asked a multi-millionaire friend and he told me he actually would prefer a well-managed condo than a GCB

    to each his own but i find that it's those older generation Singaporeans (who wants people to know they've made it) who buy the landed

    younger ones, though they have the budget, prefer better located condos

    Landed for those who want to experience landed as they have yet to experience landed.

    After experiencing landed, they wake up, they want to experience cluster housing.

    After experiencing clustr housing, they wake up, they want to experience condo.

    After experiencing condo, they wake up, they want to experience hdb.

    After experiencing hdb, they wake up , they want to experience JB and batam.

    After experiencing JB and batam, they give up, they want to experience elsewhere.

    Wake up.....

    Condos in CCR much more expensive than bigger size landed in OCR. If landed so good why those people choose to live in smaller condos in CCR and pay more than the bigger size landed in OCR?

    May be you should change your statement to: "[B][COLOR=Red]if can afford buy CCR, cannot afford buy OCR[/COLOR][/B]"?

    In any major metropolis, New York, or London. There are high priced condos, more expensive than landed properties in suburbs. Similarly there are equally high priced landed in select estates.

    There will be people choosing condos over landed anywhere in the world for various reasons, or vice versa. Can't say one is better over the other regardless of price. It's personal preference.
