    Its MCL. Guess they are buying time by starting with the construction first and hopefully sentiments will improve and then launch at their desired px. I'm sure they would lov to sell this place > $1200 psf but with so many properties in prime districts that are within $1000-1500 psf, its going to be tough to launch now.

    On the other hand, if we have The Parc going for $900-1000psf and Varsity Park going for $800 psf, the developer also will have difficulty pricing it coz once you reach the magical 4-figure psf, suddenly there are plenty of options out there.

    I would pay at most $700 psf for The Peak. I know its even lower than Varsity Park even though I feel this is a better location which is why I feel some properties like Varsity Park, The Parc, The Rochester etc are over-priced.

    No, I mean The Peak and I know where it is. I have even gone up the steep driveway to see the model of the estate and the view from the top floors.

    I know Grandhill is asking for $1100 psf but for that kinda px, I might as well get 9,10,11 properties. Which is why I say I will only pay $700 psf, ie it must be significantly lower than 9,10,11 properties before i buy The Peak. No way will i pay more than $700 psf to see burning chimneys, black smoke and cranes. As for the Parc, I guess its also around $650-700 psf worth but since the developer px it so high, i'm sure a lot of the buyers are stuck and so no way will they sell at such a huge loss.

    Actually what Farnie stated is not that far-fetched.

    Before end 2006, 500-700psf would probably be considered rather expensive for this area. Of course in these 1.5yrs, the run-up in property prices has been almost unprecedented, buoyed by several factors which we dont have to discuss anymore.

    The question going forward would be whether these prices are sustainable, given the supply demand equation and the prevailing economic environment and sentiment. It boils down to location, yes... but timing and pricing, are just as important too.

    Personally, I wont look at this unless it is below 700psf too or evaluate the situation in 2nd half of 2009, whichever comes first....

    Dear Farnie,
    I tend to agree with you that I am also inclined to think some of the nearby developments appear to be overpriced, for reasons which are not entirely clear to me as well. For instance, the Grandhill has a total of 76 transactions , as of date March 2008, (total units there is approx. 53) which is more than 50% of them has been resold about once. On the grand scale of 76 transactions, only 3 of them are are above SGD1000psf. A vast majority lies in the region of SGD700-900SGD. The original launch prices of these Grandhill units were in the range of SGD500-600psf. Penthouses went on the lower range. I recently contacted some of the owners of Grandhill and understood some of them was asking for aboug SGD1000psf, and one of the owners actually was asking SGD1.5mio for a 1300psf apartment - which I cannot comprehend why (even after viewing that apartment personally).

    If you are still reading this post, apologies for taking a little longer than I should to come back to the Balmeg development (or so I assume this thread is about). My brief views on Grandhill was because I thought it would be one of the closer proxy to Balmeg and thus my initial views and thoughts on the same. I am not sure what would be developers' view on their planned launch prices but, my inclination is that a pricing of SGD1200psf seems to be rather on the high side for both an investor or home-stayer.

    From an investor perspective, my tendency is to evaluate the investment from a "whats the next thing I can do" when considering Balmeg. On the basis of the proposed SGD1200psf, that would effectively, put Balmeg in the same arena as Icon (firesale prices are going at this level now), International Plaza and some other likes, in terms of rental yield (purely from a rental yield perspective), the latter would likely to be higher. From a cashflow perspective, one would also have to evaluate the effects of a delay cash flow for a "new built condo" which will only TOP in the later years but yet having 20% of your cash out of the door up front. From a returns point of view, thats why "new built condo" (which will have to wait 1-2 years before TOP) fades in comparison with TOPed condos - this argument may not necessarily apply for investors who are looking to flip their properties. For this argument in point, I have disregard investors buying to flip as an investment strategy, but focused purely on those whom are looking at rental yields.

    From a home-stayer perspective, waiting for it to be completed (1-2 years?), makes it less palatable to me as well. Besides, given the current state of matters in the equities market and what appears to be downward sloping properties market, buyers tend to be rather cautious in making a purchase at the risk of being caught in paying at the top end of the market .

    On the basis of the above, my personal view (which I do face some dilemma at times, often pondering if a TOPed property should actually be priced higher or lower than a similar location and characteristic property which is not built yet) is that Balmeg might not be attractive if it is indeed priced at SGD1200psf. This said, Balmeg is not with no merit at all. Its proximity to MRT (or so I understand it will be) will be a single major plus point over Grandhill and other developments along the same ridge. Grandhill dwellers have to walk a rather big round to get to Pasir Panjang Road, and a bit further to get to the planned MRT station. I understand Balmeg will have direct access to the planned MRT in future. Further, granted Balmeg will also be "newer" than Grandhill, but for purpose of our discussion, lets just assume if both properties condition would be rather similar (Grandhill, to its credit, I must say is rather well kept as far as I can see now).

    Any views or thoughts on how should new launches (which will take 1-2 years before it is TOP) pricing compare with TOPed properties in the same location and similar characteristics, will be appreciated. Look forward to hearing your contributions.

    Hi DW,

    No worries and no apologies needed for your post. I certainly agree with your reasoning and I believe even developers are non the wiser. As such they decided to start building first as they also can't believe the quick turnaround in sentiments. 1 yr ago, I think its not impossible if the developer launched @ > $1200 psf and still find takers. However, the `fire sale' sellers are making life difficult for developers in terms of pricing 1 yr on.

    In terms of location, I think its quite good because of its proximity to MRT. It is also a larger development than Grandhill and yet not as large as say Varsity Park. Personally I tend to shun developments that has less than 100 households due to maintenance costs in the long run. 1st 20 yrs shld be fine but after 20 yrs, whenever major works need to be done, the costs per household will be quite significant.

    At the end of the day, it boils down to what The Peak launch px will be. More than 800 psf, I will definitely bring my money to the East, maybe another MCL development The Esta where owners are asking 900-950 psf. So with some bargaining, I'm sure the px will be 8xx psf. Somehow, I feel even this part of East Coast is superior to Pasir Panjang.

    Cheers and happy hse-hunting and do continue to share your comments.

    Default Mistaken.

    I could have read your inference incorrectly. For avoidance of doubt, I am not 007 to whom you might be thinking that I am (just in case you are thinking I am 007).

    I always ensure I log in before I post my comments for accountability.

    As it disturbs me as being viewed as posting unconstructive and merely passing comments without substance, I thought it would be fair and necessary for me to clear that point.

    just went for showflat briefing this morning.
    Here are my comments :

    => Finishes look very nice...top quality finishes.
    => Nice Seaview from Hilltop and for specific units, ur masterbedroom is faced directly towards the sea with NS facing. Will be very breezy. If unit is designed into Balinese concept will be very nice.
    => For PH duplex units, masterbdrm occupies the entire second floor hence very exclusive. Overlooks pool n sea view from hilltop.

    Conclusion : Very unique development, huge investment potential since not much condos in sg built on hilltop overlooking open sea. Moreover very grand and nice enterance...almost like living in Peak condos HK style. With future West Coast MRT just below, less than 10 mins drive to Vivocity and Sentosa Resorts World, this is an investment tt cannot go wrong. Proximity to CBD is another selling point plus future intl business hubs, biopolis and fusionpolis with NUS nearby. Definitely one of the best condos in the South of Sg when completed in the next 2-3 yrs time.

    For more enquiries, do feel free to call me at 81835132 for a non-obligatory presentation today.
    Estimated VIP preview will be around 2wks time but BOOKING of units starts RIGHT NOW!!!
