    I believe the Madeira is much newer and looks more modern than Guilin View. Madeira also very near LRT, Guilin View maybe not so near? Madeira developed by OUB, contractor is Low Kheng Huat so quality is good. Guilin View is by CDL, not sure which contractor.

    I am a specialist on The Madeira.
    Madeira is newer and nearer to amenities. So the average price psf is higher by abt $20 to $30.
    Most units in Guilin View have a good view of the Xiao Guilin.
    For Madeira, some high floor units have excellent view of the Bukit Batok/Timah Nature reserve.

    How do you compare Madeira to Hillview Regency? Same price? which is more expensive?

    Hillview Regency is much more expensive, typically $550 to $600 psf for high floor pool facing units. The most expensive unit, size abt 1195 sq ft, is priced at $880 K and include the interior decor worth about $80K. I almost flipped when the sales agent told me the price. Generally, Fareast Organisation likes to overprice their properties. That is why Hillview Regency and The Lakeshore still have so many unsold units. Madeira already sold out upon TOP.

    Both Hillview Regency and The Madeira are 99 year leasehold properties and their leases both start from year 2000.

    If property is about LOCATION ! LOCATION AND STILL LOCATION. Madeira and Guilin View are far better than Hillview Regency. Both Madeira and Guilin View are within comfortable walking distance to Bukit Gombak MRT Station. Hillview Regency has a free feeder bus to MRT because it is too far to walk but such service only add more waiting time to travel and may not be permanent.

    Guilin View's design concept is neo classical, and The Madeira is modern. Both condos are within 5 mins walk to MRT. Maderia has a side gate to a few Muslim coffeeshops and a Shop N Save supermarket. Guilin View is opposite Little Guilin, has an exclusive location but only has a lousy mini coffeeshop and a very old provision shop across the street, have to walk 5 mins to Madeira's Muslim coffeeshops and Shop N Save. Guilin View is 3 or 4 years older than Maderia so it is only fair that the prices are lower. As for rental opportunities, Guilin View has Koreans and Hong Kongers, do not know about Maderia.

    Notice that there are very few sellers for The Maderia and Guilin View these days so maybe it is much easlier to buy into Hillview Regency. I heard that Far East do not worry about unsold units because they rent out those units, it is true?

    i personally like madiera vs guilin which looks a bit older than it is. however, at present sellers in both condos esp madiera are asking for somewhat unrealistic prices (my opinion 10% above what it should be) as they are like many sellers these days - influenced by the "hot" property market which in all reality is confined mostly to the upper segment of the market. yes, there are a few units being sold & yes there are some trickle through to the middle segment but not in a way that some of these sellers make it out to be. some units have been marketed for more than a few months with sellers stubbornly holding on to their prices while buyers are unwilling to take the bait at such levels i.e. at $480 psf and above for madiera. personally <$450 psf for madeira is more of less fair for madeira.

    If the unit is high floor and has a good view, I think it can command $480 psf. For low floor units, I think u can easily get it for below $450 psf.
    The larger units or penthouses at The Madeira are the best value for money as they are transacted at $300 psf.
