    in that aspect sterling can expect noise (not from train since its underground) but from masses of people utilising the MRT (school hours and wat not)

    maple is a good location but it is run down and seriously people will start to notice the cracks soon (i cant believe pple think maple is a good place to stay)

    blossomvale is over at dunearn with an entrace at sim darby to MRT
    might be a dark horse but again 10 year old condo, but surrounding area is more uncertain

    Nexus not many transactions, anyone knows why?

    Tessarina is D10 but too far to walk (past tan chong etc...)

    Cascadia/Flordian to pop up


    Oversupply or simply a hot spot?
    Very hard to find freehold property next to MRT nowadays...and if found, it will usually cost a bomb. Also, exclusivity is impt...no HDBs in the area, so there is some 'exclusiveness'.

    Blossomvale is indeed a dark horse. Some units do have a private lift but it is on the other side of the road.

    Nexus units are probably not going well because of all the construction from Floridian and the upcoming Cascadia. Who wants to stay in a condo surrounded by noisy construction sites (which tenant would want to stay there too?)

    Floridian is actually a nice project far better than cascadia, too bad about the pricing

    Sterling looks interesting i must agree

    anyone else looking around this area? from the poor response from cascadia i would expect prices to fall a little in the next 6 months as they have already

    has prices already fallen? doesn't feel like it. i also feel floridian is a superior project to cascadia. but the combination of higher sq ft and higher psf makes cascadia significantly "more affordable".

    tessarina is indeed a no-no thanks to the flood problem. Perhaps Nexus makes a good long term buy then since its lagging because of temporary factors (2 to 3 years more of construction at floridian?)

    even after 3 years of construction (v long time 3 years not 3 months), NEXUS is surrounded by

    1. bukit timah road (no, no)
    2. cascadia
    3. entrance of floridian

    not ideal at all....

    best facing is pool views but those are 3 br and above 1300 square feet

    prices haven fallen if you have been aggressive enough to notice..
    units have not been sold for 2-3 months and owners are lettin up

    Floridian is now transacting around $1350 psf, down from $1450 whilst Blossomvale, Maplewoods, Sterling and Nexus are about $1100 to $1250.
