    the difference 1sqm. about the size of a mahjong table. if the both are same layout, meaning no balcony, then go for the extra 10sqft if the price does not differ much.

    If space is the only difference, while facing and all else is fine with the smaller unit, get the smaller unit, and use the 40K for reno or the next property.

    Agree. if the additional 10sqft for the 360sqft unit is at the planter area, whereas the 350sqft unit has no planter, then just go for 350sqft.

    when u play MM, quantum is the key. buy the cheapest unit in the project.

    Think of it this way, when you are renting / buying.

    How much more will u pay to rent a 10sqft bigger apartment? (lower quantum higher yield. 500k vs 540k makes a big difference)

    When it TOPs, many may be trying to sell their unit. U have the price advantage to undercut them!

    Take a 2.5k rental, 500k VS 540k = 6% vs 5.5% yield.

    curious qn for mm buyers: is there no min size to consider at all? like cut-off at 484sqft or something
    how small is too small
    if you dont't own any property, you're short. take cover quickly

    It depends on projects. a typical MM project entirely made up of shoeboxes may have 20 types of 1 bedder layouts.

    If you're talking about a shoebox in a normal PC project, there's usually only 1 or 2. At most with PES or without.

    Obviously, choose the most functional and value for $$.

    Well, typically for own stay you may still think of the resale value in the future right? a 1 bedder is always a 1 bedder. dosent matter how big or small all u have is a living and a bedroom. what else could u have?

    Say you're buying a resale unit now, the 350sqft at 700k vs a 360sqft at 650k which 1 will you buy?

    10sq = size of air con ledge
    Go for smaller one if for rental. But for own stay, go for bigger one.

    For rental, you are absolutely right.

    I would think 10sf for a 350sf unit is quite significant ... so depends on how different the layouts are. If the 10sf means an additional yard (for washer) or balcony strip or some space which may be of significant value to potential tenants, i will get the bigger one. But did u say its similar layout?

    Having said that, 40K for a 10sf means $4000psf !? As many bros have advised, if the additional 10sf is not put for practical use, then go for smaller.

    for own stay, get the bigger one.
    for investment, get the smaller one.

    If that's the case, I won't pay the extra $40K!
    I would rather spend the $40k on designing the house to better utilise the space.

    $40k is justifiable for the one with better layout and facing, example pool view not facing the main road, west sun, otherwise don't waste the $40k.

    If 1400sf to 1410... no effect.

    But 10sf for a 3XXsf, it will be some effect.
