    I live near there, quite ulu place, with some new HDB constructions going on around there, soon will get more crowded. There is also an empty plot of land next to it for a future condo.

    I got a friend who stays there. Been to his place a few times liao. Seen ang mos, koreans, filipinos there. Overall, it's a pretty quiet development. The facilities are ok though. My friend is banking on the upcoming Seletar Airport Hub for the prices to go up. Other than that, the prices are pretty stagnant.

    Its a very blissful place, especially with the forest opposite the estate and the sea behind the forest.

    Can jog to Yishun Dam and enjoy the view and breeze from the reservoir on one side and the sea from the other.

    If you stay high enough, the view is fantasic.
    The pool is a 50m pool (and its not in the sky).

    Too bad moved out as its getting nosier when there's more people over the years using the Seletar Camp exit/entrance and the jam when travelling down to town when using CTE.

    However, must say that after the opening of KPE and the widening of CTE, things are so much more bearable........

    I miss that place and the tranquility (yes some will say ulu, that's why tranquil)

    I have seen a unit at high floor. Excellent View.

    if you are not working and not taking care of kids, try go for a swim, then relax on the beach chair facing the forest and enjoy the wind and watching the trees sway in front........its a wonderful feeling.......

    Really can feel that you are away from the hustle and bustle of the city life.

    2. Ulu far inside yishun and not far ahead got workers hostel....at night alot of pple sitting along the grass patch sia...

    Good thing

    1.got shuttle bus(must hv since it is so far inside yishun)
    2.reasonable price like northoaks.

    Not really...

    If they are betting on it, they would go for the new developments.

    This development is mainly for self stay folks, the tenants there now will also likely move when new condos are up in Yishun. It's like that.

    Not a bad place for stay as it is within reach of HDB upgraders.

    Yishun EC site gets 10 bids, what will be the launch price?
    H88
    Friday, 12 March 2010, 12:37



    The Executive Condominium (EC) site at far off Yishun Avenue 11 is pretty hot, and has attracted 10 bids. The site is likely to be won by MCC Land Singapore with a $127.8M bid.



    According to CBRE, the break even price for the condo built would be roughly $520 psf. Which means that the developer has plenty of space to maneuver between The Estuary's recent pricing of ~$735 psf - $870 psf and still make a healthy profit.

    Of course the EC developer could get greedy and keep in trend with the recent launch of The Estuary ... but that would mean ~$750psf ECs. Would you bite then?

    Just to clear your heads, the Lilydale EC that sits just beside the EC site, recently transacted between $516 psf - 536psf.

    Hi Sgysfj,
    i own an unit in lilydale. currently tenanted.
    i do admit the location is out-of-place from town.
    i bought it becoz I see a difference between lilydale & northoaks (i was hse hunting among those few developments in yishun & woodlands).
    If you look within this quiet area, you will notice the reservoir is developing... take a walk to the nearby yishun dam. the atmosphere is so layback & relaxed...
    Nearby HDB, EC & airhub is comin up... Infrastructure will definitely improve dramatically.
    Punggol wasnt accessible last time. look at wat's happening there now.. the houses there are selling like hot cakes.
    everything starts from inaccessiblilty.
    since its for staying purposes, that means u wil hv the time to see this area developed. as the infrastructure appreciates, so will your property.
    dont worry abt the workers loitering outside lilydale, they will be gone as this place gradually matures.

    Hi Sgysfj,
    mine is tenanted, so i can't comment on the tenancy mix.
    isit really so important? U will only own 1 unit there. there r total 300+ unit in lilydale. owners may rent out their units 2moro. I may chg tenant nex yr. tenancy mix is beyond us and tis shldnt b a concern, seriously (from my pt of view).
    Evryone luvs to stay in an appreciating property, this shld b a consideration in fact.
    if it's really your concern (tenant-mix), u shld spend some time in this development. Find some time, walk around, laze around the pool and see for yourself.
    This area is developing. Meantime, you wil enjoy the serenity, quietness & greenery...

    i saw your the other thread. lilydale furnishing is newer. kitchen cabinet design for lilydale can last you for another 10yrs. Northoaks & woodvale is up for a major interior overhual, unless you manage to find a newly renovated unit.
    use the money to renovate to your own liking. why pay for other people's taste?
    U r competing with local and foreigner for Northoaks and Woodsvale (they are privatized)
    U r competing with only locals for lilydale (gg to privatize in few yrs' time)
    mayb theres 1 catch. i pay higher maint fee as compare to units of almos same size in both northoaks and woodsvale.

    Buying for self stay is not rational. Go with your heart.

    Can continue looking while you try again.

    Timing the option can help.

    can sell as long as there's one buyer. You want to try selling first before buying?

    Care to share more details on your experience? So that potential home buyers/ sellers can be more aware of potential pitfalls?

    We wanted to sell our flat and engaged an agent.. He agreed to try to fetch x pricing for the flat.he also will assist us in getting a condo and ensure smooth transistion btw selling and buying.

    After 1st week of marketing our flat, the agent infd us there is one buyer's agent who offered price x-40k. Then he storied tat he talked and convinced the buyer to up the price to x-30k. We told him we wnt accept.

    Then the next day, he inf again tat the buyer called him direct and offered to engaged him as their agent .they put in another offer x-25k.at this pt we oredi find it funi tat y suddenly the buyer engaged him direct. But we did not question him n gave him benefit of doubt. Again we rejected the offer.

    The next day again, he informed us the buyer engaged a different agent and the new agent called him and offered x-20k. According to him, this was the last last offer.he also added tis was a reasonable offer and we shld consider it.
    We asked him to nego wif the buyer to increase their offer which he countered the buyer has oredi given the last best offer.

    So I told him I wan to tok to the buyer direct. At tis point he came up wif alot of excuses n refused to let us nego wif the buyer.subsequently he infd tat he will hold off the buyer and say we will consider their last offer.

    The following week viewing and there was another buyer who came without agent.we were told that he offered x-20k and again the agent told us it's a reasonable offer n we shld consider.we told him to nego for a figure close to x price.

    On last Sunday, the agent infd the buyer had increased the offer by 2k. Again I tol him to talk to the buyer and nego further.. I also told him to invite the buyer for a 2nd viewing and then we can nego together wif him.

    All of a sudden, the next day the agent infd me tat this buyer also pull out and withdraw offer. He cited all kind of reasons why the buyer retracted.


    All in all, it may seem unfair to the agent that we dnt believe him. But in both instances, the coincidences are too obvious tat we find it hard to believe. It's our first time selling our flat and it rili makes us regret even making the decision to sell.

    We have read of rogue agents out there and was not rili aware of wat these agents are capable of doing. Although we didnt rili have any proof of any underhanded motives of tis agent, wat hapen has rili make us tink twice abt selling.

    Ps. We dnt mean to discredit or accuse any agents of being dishonest.wat hapened to us may not even be considered as such. We r just sceptical and don't want to be taken advantage of.

    I believe everyone has similar story to tell. Those foreign talent even more creative. In any case good to share. It's a principal-agent thing. Agent, by nature, are ONLY interested to work to maximise their own gain, not yours. The challenge is to align that selfish motive to meet your objective as well.
