Seletar, condos amidst landed

Recommended Posts


Hi Master,
Saw in your earlier postings mentioning that Seletar is a good place...about basin collecting wealth...
What do you think about Seletar Park Residences? (Cant afford the landed properties there...yet haha) so thought maybe can get a condo near those landed properties...to get the 'rich air'...Seletar Park Residence is the first that came to mind. Came across the floorplan of a 4 br unit and it is first floorplan of a condo that I have seen that is so squarish. Very little missing corner.
can you advise which is best block to buy if this is a good project?
Thank you very much.

Early I was attracted to the place. As when I drive in to the show room; it seems serene and peaceful.
And I believe; the most attractive was the ground floor units which has very high ceiling. But believe most ground floor units taken.
Must be careful of specific units that may be cut by the roof ..... For example 4 bedroom Type D2 stack 61 has to take extra care that the roof of the club-house does not slice or cut in that unit's frontage.
In the end; as the price of 99 has caught up with freehold; decided to purchase a freehold 1km from Tao Nan in Katong area.
I (strongly) believe; this is not Feng Shui; but a future MRT station will be close to it.

Sorry for the poor image, as I simply took a photo from an existing brochure that I have for Seletar Park Residences

Frankly besides Feng Shui; Seletar Park Residence being only a 99 year lease property; even for a 3 bedroom (not 4 bedroom) is costing around $1.55M; to me I could easily get a FREEHOLD apartment, now for much less.
It is a pity; 99 year lease within a blink of an eye... for $1.55M or more is like handing over money later to the "government".
My personal belief (not Feng Shui is that); today; for anything below $1M or even $1.2M (if near MRT) is ok for 99 leasehold. But anything above that amount; pretty silly to pay for a 99 year (miserable) leasehold. When reach 60 years.. harder for bank loans and CPF disbursement!

Did you mean that future MRT will be built in Seletar or Katong?
I went to see Seletar Park Residence cuz of quietness and to hopefully tap on the landed property qi there. I am looking ?t stack 52. Either 2nd or 3rd flr depending on availability.
I totally agree with you that at 1.7 to 1.8m can get a freehold ?omewhere. That is reason why I have been hesitating so long. I kept asking, can I breakeven? But I Need a house soon lor as on rental now.... So I wonder...is this place and this unit is good fengshui or not. If so, maybe still worth buying? ...Headache. What wld you advise.

Generally, sentiments aside; Feng Shui is acceptable. (Subject to best facing direction for the "breadwinner" and maybe more in-depth review or simply for now; based on personal instincts.
Please take a-look at the attachment. Sorry, if it is abit blur. But looks like in the future, practically every where got MRT or LRT.
Don't quote me; but I had previously reviewed and looks like there is a line from Jalan Kayu. And most likely at first I thought that when they pull down the post office at the Junction of Jalan Kayu / Yio Chu Kang to earmark for an MRT station.
Most likely, I think the "Neram" MRT station should be around the location or opposite this site; which is empty....
Personally, I missed the ground floor units which are approx. 4 metre high ceiling. If ground floor units; pretty good "buy". But sandwiched in between these and before penthouse; I did not consider buying it.
But I am pretty sure or have a feeling, the Neram MRT could be directly opposite Greenwich .... maybe that empty plot of land.. If so, it is a plus for Seletar Park Res... 100 metres away.. maybe...

Sorry for the side-track.
Last year, I bought a freehold home 1km from Tao Nan / CHIJ. I reviewed and most likely felt that one of the stations is at the location as shown in the attachment.
Early this year; a client told me that; coincidentally, she spilled out that a reliable source told her that one of the new stations for the Marine Parade Line is opposite the Marine Parade community centre. Which is exactly as shown.
Again, I am not liable for any loss if anyone purchase based on this.
My hope is that this will realise.

Caution:
Let's face it; sometimes; the Seletar Line may never be built or there may not be a station called Neram or Greenwich. Or by the time the lease of the property drawn down to below 60 years; suddenly the line may be built.
Or if they did a tunnel below Jalan Kayu towards Seletar Road; may cause soil settlement and worse; the development becomes unsafe... and need to be acquired by the government....
Lastly; although the condo is amidst landed; but it is only a miserable 99 years old (for the room type; the lease costs greater than $1.5 or MORE million of dollars. And can only perhaps last0.8 of ageneration and say bye bye to it)

Hi there,
your reply is great help! Really grateful.
My husband and my Kua no is 4. South facing main door in this case, stack 52, ok right?
where else in northeast can we find freehold top soon and 1.7 to 1.8m? Saw one in east coast, top next year, $2m and unit is smaller in size. How is fengshui of tembusu? Better than Seletar Park Residences?

In the government master plan; there seems to be a new MRT station on the existing North-South line.
In the master plan; it shows "Canberra MRT station". If so, in the future (perhaps) it would be good news for the aged Yishun Emerald condo; the newly under construction Eight Courtyards; One Canberra and near-by Yishun flats.
As the people; there may perhaps one fine day; do not need to take a feeder service to the Yishun MRT station.

Attached is a chart showing my personal threshold for purchase of a home in Singapore:
1. I don't mind paying $1m to $1.2m for a 99year leasehold especially if it has certain advantages e.g. short distance to an MRT station (not LRT). Or within 1KM to a good school.
2. I will not consider anything above $1.2m for 99year leaseholds; in my opinion and not as mentioned under Para 1.
3. 999 years come under the above consideration. In Singapore, most if not all 999 year homes as if I am not mistaken they have only around 7xx+ years left.

Wah, thank you very much. Really set us thinking...
but new development don't have 1 to 1.2m pricing. Buy resale? We need at least 1200 sq ft hse. Still have profit margin for old house especially when come 2016, when there is oversupply, old house may not be as attractive as the newer ones...what's your opinion on this?

These are some considerations:
1. Unfortunately in reality; what you mentioned is true. 3 + years ago; bigger brand new 99year old condo units can go for 800K or 900K.
2. Thus, today, when the supply has not caught up; be prepared to pay even 1.5M for a new 99 year old leasehold apartment.
3. Frankly majority would prefer to buy brand-new. Even for freehold apartments.
4. If you have no choice from 2013 to early 2015; can understand, you may have to adjust your personal THRESHOLD. Given that you have a size constraint.
5. Thus, in real life; after 2015; when the glut especially more and more supply + TOP; then I feel the threshold of $1.2M is achievable.
6. For practical reasons; the current insurance is at least a 99 leasehold (close to or next to) an MRT is better than one that is no where near one.
7. For example, one of my old client; wanted a bigger flat. They sold their freehold condo in River valley road. And the criteria is to get a bigger flat.
7.1. As originally, wife can't conceive. And by coincidence; after the Feng Shui; just gave birth to a baby boy. Went with them to view several flats. We had a chat and fortunately, they nearly wanted to buy a penthouse for
>1.2m at Parkview EC; Sengkang.
7.2. They instead finally bought a 99year at Kovan Residence. (quite new as TOP pretty recent).
7.3. Although 99 years but just a few metres away from Kovan Residence.
8. Thus, given that they had similar constraints "bigger" flat; at least their trump card is still a home that is "next" to an MRT. Compared to the Parkview EC. In rental or resale; which will be a better insurance?

Oops! Sorry, this is still 2013 - 2014 duration. If so, my "THRESOLD" model is considered unreasonable AT THIS TIME!
Apologies; the attachment should reflect the current sentiments.....

These are some considerations:
1. If the development was built before the MRT; then if somehow; due to soil settlement; buildings + foundations start to crack. This is the chief (common sense) reason why some say no good Feng Shui.
2. If the site/ development was built inconjuction or after the MRT has been built = excellent!

If one walks pastthe junction between Upper Serangoon Road and Tampines Road (Kovan Residences) one can view a poultry seller selling a chicken (cock) to a lady.
There are also a geese and a duck at the corner.
Kovan Residences happens to be the site of the Simon Road Market in the 1943's.

Time flies. I though I got my keys to a 99 year old house, yesterday!
But I think I have already stayed there for more than 10 years!
Note: In my opinion, this applies to SGP properties especially HDB, condo, EC condo, private apartments that costs $1M to $1.2M and above.
If it is just a $400K or even $800K, property... what the heck; have to live-with-it. Or wait for one fine day, perhaps a utopian situation where a future govt. will up the lease-period or add 99 years, more to eligible citizens for free or pay a nominal fee?

Spike in number of flatssold below valuation
By RACHEL AU-YONG
THE number of Housing Boardflats being sold below valuationhas rocketed, as tighter mortgage
rules eat into demand.
According to HDB's latest figures, 105 units were sold in October for less than their appraisal.
This accounted for 7 per cent ofthe total resale volume, a markedincrease on the average 0.3 per
cent for each month of the firsthalf of the year.
This means around four timesas many flats were sold below valuation in October alone than
over the whole of January toJune, when there was an averageof five such transactions every
month.
This has forced sellers, suchas assistant manager RaymondKoh, 37, to adjust expectations.
After asking for a cash-over-valuation (GOV) of $20,000 forhis $526,000 five-roomer in
PunggoJ earlier this year and finding no buyers, he cut his price. "Ilowered my GOV to $10,000,
then $5,000, then zero," he said."Then I started going negative."
Today, his second-floor,nine-year-old flat is on sale for$20,000 below valuation.
The lower mortgage servicingratio, shorter loan tenure andthree-year wait before new
permanent residents can buypublic flats - announced in quicksuccession since August - have
cooled interest. Median COV,the cash amount which buyerstypically pay on top of valuation
of a resale unit, fell from $35,000in January to $12,000 in October.Some sellers are no longer asking for COVs, and some are pricing flats even below valuation.
OrangeTee research head Christine Li thinks the main COV killer is the stricter mortgage rules.
In August, the Housing Boardannounced that resale buyers canuse up to only 30 per cent of
their gross monthly income to repay loans with HDB, down from35 per cent. This is in line with
the mortgage servicing ratio announced in January for loansfrom private banks.
"Because buyers, especiallyyoung couples, can now take outonly smaller loans, the additional
portion has to be fronted bycash, which eats into their abilityto pay COVs," she said.
Some flats will be hit worsethan others, said analysts.In Punggol and Sengkang, or
larger estates in outlying areassuch as Choa Chu Kang, the ramping up of new Build-To-Order
flats has come at the same timeas owners of neighbouring blocksbeing allowed to sell after a typi
cal five-year minimum occupation period, said PropNex chiefexecutive Mohamed Ismail.
"And if you live on the secondfloor, facing the rubbish chute -it's a triple whammy," he said.
"Your COV will, of course, fall."Owners such as divorcing couples or those who have pur-
chased a new flat may have littlechoice but to sell.
Mr Koh has not bought a flatyet, but wants to upgrade to anexecutive apartment or a condo-
minium in Sengkang, near theschool of his choice for hisfive-year-old son. But he is ada-
mant that $20,000 below valuation is as low as he is willing togo. "Any lower and 1 might a?
well continue living here."

of Singapore investors have been buying
London property over the past 12 months,
about 25 per cent more than a year
earlier. Mr Julian Sedgwick of .Savills
Sin- gapore says: "It is hard to track
the number of different launches in Sin-
gapore but we have certainly seen an
increase in the number of launches this
year compared with last year."He
says this could be due to cool- ing
measures in Singapore and an increase in
local agencies trying to sell
international property. "The key cities
of interest are London, Sydney,
Melbourne, Bang- kok, New York, Kuala
Lumpur, To- kyo and growing interest in
Ma- nila," he adds.Mrs Doris Tan
of Jones Lang La- a!* has also seen
strong growth in PHOTO BLOOMBERG About
107 London projects alone have been
brought to Singapore for sale by various
agencies this year, says DTZ Singapore
research head Lee Lay Keng. sales for
these cities. "We sold close to 800
units of London properties to
Singaporeans, which is about 80 per cent
of the total property pur- chases made
this year, and about 150 Tokyo
properties to Singapore- ans as
well."Singaporeans are also among the
top foreign investors in the Bangkok
condominium market, ac- counting for 18
per cent of CBRE sales to overseas
buyers this year, says Ms Aliwassa
Pathnadabutr, managing director at
property con- sultancy CB Richard Ellis
in Thai- land."Singapore is ranked
second af- ter Hong Kong in terms of top
for- eign investors in Bangkok's down-
town condominium market," she adds.
However, there are certain risks and
restrictions in the various cities and
countries when it comes to buy- ing
property overseas. Australia has
restrictions on over- seas investors
wanting to buy pre-existing properties,
according to Savills' Australian office.
If you are looking to move there,
Australia's Significant Investor Visa
requires an investment of ASS mil- lion
(SS5.7 million) in complying investments
for a minimum of four years before being
eligible to apply for a permanent
visa.CBRE's Ms Pathnadabutr says
buying condo units in Thailand is the
simplest and safest for foreign
investors while serviced apart- ments
are not available for individ- ual sale.
Foreign investors cannot own land in
Thailand.She adds: "Most foreign
investors, including Singaporeans,
therefore choose to invest in
freeholdcondominiums."There
are so many options on the table that
there seems to be something for every
investor in each city, depending on the
bud- get.Take a buyer with
$500,000 to $600,000 to spend. Savills'
Mr Sedgwick says: "You are looking at a
one-bed (flat) in a zone two location of
London or a high-end condo in Thailand.
In Melbourne, you could be looking at a
one- or two-bed in the central business
district and perhaps a one-bed or studio
in Sydney." rachaelb@sph.com.sg See
