    If the developers are as confident the prices will go up as they claim they will, then why the rush to launch and ballot in the middle of the June school holidays ?

    There is no need for Gardens to try to launch before Affinity and for Affinity to move forward its ballot date if prices are expected to rise further since developers want to sell as high as possible. This is indeed very interesting signals to the market.

    I think one wants to sell using quality while the other wants to sell fast. Just a reflection of different strategy I supposed.

    Just released, for your info.. that cheapest units start

    The balloting prices for 1-3 bedder is slightly lower than what arachon posted earlier on. 4/5 bedder slightly higher. Maybe they targeting to sell the 1-3 bedder first in order to beat affinity?

    Affinity sold around 90 plus units only
    This means the crowd during the preview was deceiving.

    Why tapestry and twin vew sells so well though both lousy location is because buyers from both projects felt that they already sitting on 25-35% paper gain given the price for nearby plot is higher. For Affinity and TGR, they lack of the above elements. And worse, both not cheap for their location. Their units can only move if future prices get higher.

    These calculations demonstrate that time literally is money - the value of the money you have now is not the same as it will be in the future and vice versa. So, it is important to know how to calculate the time value of money so that you can distinguish between the worth of investments that offer you returns at different times.

    When people start to see Present Value and know Time Value of Money, the 10% is the winner.

    Yes, this has always been the rule of this game.

    prices are now more reasonable for The Garden Residences.

    Just a matter of facing..

    Anyway, if the location is better for both launches (e.g. near MRT) at those prices, buyers will definitely bite

    Not sure after today, some will go back to buy older projects (left over units) like park place, grandeur park.. or maybe left over units in tapestry/twin vew. Left mostly bigger units
