    i think there are 2 units left going for 1900 psf for low floor (4th) and 2100 psf for high floor. I think it is value for money cos just behind it is Ardmore II going for 2200-2400psf at launch (may be higher now) and Orange Grove residences which is further down the road is already 2000-2200psf.

    It doesnt hv a nice showflat like the others but its location cant be beat.check out th sales office at Sime Darby centre dunearn rd on top of performance motors.

    ask your opinion: i just got offer of $2500psf for orion- shall i sell it?
    the neighbourhood is going for betw $2800 Tate to $3200 Cliveden.i know orion is a discount cos it is not a high profile project. shall i take the profit n roll into another condo or hold out for a higher price?

    Not the right time to sell unless you need the cash urgently. $2500 psf is too low. This location is excellent, and this project is IMO better than those further in like those in Ardmore Park and Claymore. $2500 psf was the launch price for Ardmore II, for god's sake. If you can wait, I suggest waiting till those en blocs like Pin Tjoe and Anderson start to launch. This area will see a different price then.

    I think you better sell it as low profile project usually harder to sell. You can roll it to other higher profile luxury projects like Ardmore II, Paterson residence or The Grange.

    imho, i'd say wait. there are quite a number of projects launching in the vicinity, so it is likely to go up some more. your friend is right not to take up the 2900 offer for admore park. with the marq's launch price, prices will be heading up some more.

    reading this thread sure is interesting.

    I am looking at a place for own stay as I will be relocating to Singapore end of this year. I have been following the market for quite a while. My conclusion the market is crazy.

    Apparently there is a unit going for 1200 psf on propertyguru. Now the unit is first or second floor since it is at tree crown level, judging from the pictures. Since it is for my own stay a low lever unit is unacceptable, especially since I cannot judge the noise level. I presume by the time I visit Singapore again in April the unit will be gone.

    Compared to this offer D15 just seems over-priced.

    3.6 million for an apartment of only 1700 sqft with view of the tree tops? Are agents comedians in disguise?

    Well I wish them good luck with that. I can get a unit at the Sail with full bay view at 1600psf. If you put some effort and renovate it, it will be a killer unit. In 10-20 years despite its lease period '(99 years) it will be worth a lot. Considering all the development going into Marina bay and the views that the Sail commands.

    I think the agents in Singapore are trying to fix prices on the sales front. Rental income is dropping fast, and you would need to rent out that unit at 10,000 a month to get around 3.3% return. That is not even calculating in property tax, and condo fees. So good luck with that, especially when you look at what is all available and how much of it. The supply will increase in district 9, 10, and 11 in the next (6-18) months.

    If you are looking for own stay, and are not bound to a specific street than there is no reason to buy now. There is so much choice but absolute unreasonable expectations.

    I know there is a sucker born everyday. How ever I think the supply of suckers has dried off, as they got burned in the recent bubble, time for people to look at the facts.
