    Default Advice Needed for A Malaysian Investor

    Hi

    I am a Malaysian looking to for investment property. I have been asked to look into District 15. Any suggestions on where I should be looking? My budget is rather small less than SGD 1 mil. Don't mind a small size condo or a new project. Eventually plan to rent out. Please advise as to where I should be looking. I met up with a property developer who is developing D-Fresco at Joo Chiat Lane. I think the launching price is SGD650.00 psf. Any opinion?


    Thanks very much

    I will avoid Joo Chiat. East Coast is best in D15 but East Coast psf is at least $1.2k and above, my advise is look to Kembangan or Telok Kurau...

    The rental market should be good as well for these 2 areas.

    Ok, I will look into Kembangan and Teluk Kurau, but any known development which I can look out for? Maybe for East Coast, I can look for a studio. Prices are so high in Singapore !

    I think you should go around, explore and talk to agents before making a decision. nothing like seeing and hearing for yourself before committing. These 2 areas generally should be safe investment..

    Can take a look at Toa Payoh/Bishan area. These area are central which have good rental yield.
    Clover By The Park in Bishan is one such good project. Near to Bishan park. Good for stay as well as rental.

    Clover is leasehold and far from MRT... central also not a great location for expat rental... maybe good, but not great...

    For investment , why buy now...? Market trend is heading south. The question now is how much lower and how long it will last...

    Good Luck

    I am still "learning" the ropes and try to understand the Singapore locations , hence likely it will take me a couple of months before deciding to purchase, when the prices are really down south ! A friend asked me to look at Seaview and Costa D'Azur near Parkway Parade, for investment and rental ? Once I decide on the locations, then I will watch and monitor the prices.

    My take is avoid East Coast at all cost - massive oversupply. Recent caveats show that prices are crashing. Prices there are artificially held up by the Indian expats, esp in D15 Amber Meyer and Tanjong Rhu. Once their interest falter, prices may crash. You can get old FH condos in D15 at <700psf - prices are falling very fast. Go to nationproperty.sg and look for the transactions - recent prices have fallen drastically.

    would go 4 triple 9 or frhld. D15 too many dev so wud look at city fringe in d12, especially new condos near boon keng area. New Hdb flats are already sellng at mre than 700k in boon keng area so u judge urself 4 future condos there. Go 4 tall dev hi flr units to play safe. Aim at $800psf to $950psf to be safe.

    Not surprised the agents are always pushing East Coast properties - too much supply, no demand. Overpriced - overhyped - overpolluted - oversupply. East Coast is always the longest listing in classifieds - people can't wait to dump. East Coast is so "over". Prices are falling like knives and rental yield is also not good. If you want to buy, some mass market ones might be better - becos the low capital base ensures good rental yields. Or best, don't buy property now. Joo Chat is quite "complicated". Telok Kurau has probably the worst quality build with no facilities. Go figure.

    Buying a property is a very personal decision, down to the location. If you are buying just for investment, usually pp buy one near MRT. For D15, buyers are usually Easterners who have grown up there and will not stay anywhere else. You should do your own due diligence, dont rush into it, and enjoy the process. Everyone's view and taste is different. Also not everyone make money, some may lose, hence depends on whether you are just using cash as having holding power also makes a world of difference. I have enjoyed this house-hunting process tremendously over 4 years ago, received TOP and just completed reno. The whole process is worth it. Hence you should shop around for opinions, but it will still be a personal choice.

    I smell sour grapes.. Talk about D15..Yes I agree Amber road is overflooding but prices will stay strong for MEYER Rd..It is a good fengshui place which will not lose its value.There will be a slight dip in prices when property crashes but dont expect a drastic drop like in the past...

    kembangan also not so good. with 1m, there are better places to buy. try upper east coast, or bukit timah area. u can buy an older unit no need to buy new one.

    $1M at the moment, you have quite a few option. As a fellow Malaysian, I think you should concentrate on Districts 9, 10, 11 and 15. However for freehold there are not much options in the first three districts unless you go for smaller size units. For District 15, the Amber area e.g., The Esta, One Amber and even the Sea View you may have a chance to grab one.... For research purposes, go to the URA website at www.ura.gov.sg to have a feel of the caveats lodged recently. The other alternative that my mentor suggested to me is to buy property stocks. Good luck.....

    Honestly, I do not think you will need to look for units that far from city yet within D15. I have numerous new developers' unit for your consideration especially with good rental return in D15 and even D9 which will definitely not be above your budget. If you are able to stretch a little, I might even be able to get you 2 units instead. If you are keen to know how you can save cost yet make money on your property investment, do drop me a line @ 82818888.

    Cheers!

    Aiyah! Go get something in or around Paya Lebar Central lah. When they start developing the business hub, you will reap the benefits.

    Hiya, I have visited D-Fresco showflat, and it seems quite a nice place to live in and very convenient to Katong eateries and shopping mall. Would recommend it against Telok Kurau which is awfully cramped.

    Rule of Thumb when it comes to buying a private property (at least in my point of view)

    1) Not located in the midst of public housing estates. Firstly, the noise, the crowd and neighbourhood environment derived from public housing is already a big NO.

    2) Located near to town for easy access like D15 is good

    3) Avoid big developments - chances of successful en-bloc is much lower than small developments. Squeezing 100+ families on a small plot of land - population density is too high, lack of breathing space. Also, noise and sharing of common facilities with a large crowd are major drawbacks.

    4) Pay nothing more than $1000 psf if you dun want to be stucked with your property during downturn

    5) Lastly, buy the development in which design and layout suits your liking

    Happy shopping
