    Default Trevista (D12, 99 years leasehold, NTUC Choice Homes)

    Checked out the site this evening. Serious building has already begun.

    Has it been launched yet?

    How long does it takes to walk to the Toa Payoh MRT? ( 20 mins I estimate )

    The area has a concrete jungle feel, with the ultra tall apartments nearby.

    I may be wrong but don't recall seeing it launched.
    About 15-20 min walk, depending on the speed of walking.

    just across the road, amongst the hdb blocks, there is a big cluster of shophouses, including at least 2 coffee shops. this is a plus point - convenient and keep down cost of living. dun know when they were built but they gave me a feeling of an older time zone when i walked by the shops.

    heard on radio this evening. Mah is not sure the recent high prices in launched projects are justifiable. wonder will there be measures to cool the steep rise in prices.

    overall, there is a scary feeling when URA is getting concerned....

    Beware Buyers!!!!

    Below is what the real market we are in:-

    "He added that it is uncertain if the buying momentum seen in recent months can be sustained."

    "The forecast is still for negative growth this year. Although it's not as negative as it was in the beginning of the year. I think there is still uncertainty... But what is important really is for all of us, all the players in the market, to make sure that the market remains healthy," said Mr Mah.

    Agree.. about 200m from streetdirectory.com So based on my 2.4km walking time, will take me about 4mins to reach. Anyway, another HDB surrounded condo.

    up to 10 mins walk to mrt can be considered convenient.

    although surrounded by hdb, this place is quite conveneint. and tpy is quite central.

    nearby hdb 5 rm is asking for about $630K.

    so, if trevista can get a 860 sqft ( 80 sqm ) 2 room for abt $800k ( $930 PSF ), will it be safe to take up? this is just an assumption, as the pricing is not known yet. anything above $1000 psf will not be considered.

    Asking price could be close to $1000psf looking at the current property barometer.

    Developer now have to be realistic as there are so many projects coming up.

    Usually when the government make noise, it is a signal to the developers that they should not be too aggressive in their pricing.

    So I guess 1000psf will be a challenge for the developers now unlike 3 weeks ago. :-)

    i don't know what are the sizes but the way this is written makes it sound like above 1200psf.

    - anyone with experience on this: will getting home ( to trevista ) in the evening by car be a problem in terms of heavy traffic. and vice versa getting out to work by car.

    - the site area ( 13,955 sqm ) looks small as it is sited near a road junction and with buidlings close by. but it is slightly larger than optima ( 9875 sqm ). the eye can play tricks.

    - covenience wise, it is good as there are hdb shops opposite to eat and do simple shopping. but as it is surrounded by hdb, certain groups are put off, which means lesser demand when time comes for resale or rental.

    - a pricing of $950 - $1000 PSF may be inevitable based on base cost of developer. it could be much more as the launch is timed to catch the rising acceptance of the market.

    Default Break-even price for developer - 850 psf

    Last time when the HomeChoice bought with JV partner , heard expected break-even psf is around 850 psf. If they try to sell at AMK above 1,000 psf, then siao liao.

    View wise, Only macritchie for above 30 sty, No more city-view as there is 5 blocks of 40 sty (Blk 79A - E) right in front of it. Right across the road is 4 x 43 sty of DBSS too. Not much of difference actually. Only selling point is 3 minutes to Braddell MRT stn. Except for condo facilities (rental wise) , it is smack right with all HDB blocks. Quite cluttered and high density for the Lor 1/ Lor 2.

    oh well, developers are capitalising on these currently "rare" condo plots, only 1 in AMK, 1 in Toa Payoh, 1 in Tanah Merah to sell high. there are many possible future plots but currently only 1 each so they are really maximising their profits.

    if private plots in the hdb heartlands considered rare coz condo residents can share in hdb amenities, then hdb upgraders really have nothing much to upgrade liao...no point paying $700000 MORE for a condo just to enjoy having the pool, tennis court, security guard, gym, barbecue pit. hdb residents can continue staying in their highrise hdb and join a country club menbership, use the facilities until sick and can still sell the membership at a profit...

    on a typical workday ard 6pm, the internal driving conditions in lor 2/lor 3 is not an issue. but nowaday's it is the expressway getting clogged very often. the traffic on PIE heading east on a typical work day at 6 pm is bad.

    trevista is encircled by tall hdb ( an issue of concern ). there is no worthy views unless one get the very top 39th storey.

    based on some asking prices of hdb in vicinity, a price of abt $880K for a trevista 2 room ard 900 sq ft, mid level, is the max to consider.

    Honestly, the plus thing abt Trevista is central location in Toa Payoh, 3 minutes to Braddell MRT stn. Folks who bgt The [email protected] Payoh across the road are much better off without having to pay for the maintenance of Condo facilities. The Peak is higher at 43 sty and better space out compared to Trevista 3 towers of 39 sty within a compact area. No wind or breathing space with all the Great Wall of Toa payoh Central (5 blks of 40 sty). No view at all facing south ,West and East. Only view is North towards Bishan .
    Beak-even price for developer is above 850 psf.

    just bcos a kuku/greedy developer price amk at over 1150psf means that TPY or other suburban mass mkt condo will naturally be at 900 to 1k psf lvl.. hdb heartland condo fair value no more than 7xx psf

    so dun fall into this kind of psychological trap

    those ppl earning more than 10k a month how to buy the Peak?
    based on Optima pricing, i think this one should be around 900psft...
    it would be foolish to follow FEO

    Some how, Singaporeans like to buy and dislike old? Imagine paying >=$1200 psf for NEW 99 years LH condo in AMK and Toa Payoh? Ha ha ha! Look harder and there are actually much better bargains else where and in District 09, 10, and 11 (more prestigeous estates and not surrounded by HDBs, although older condo units and slightly higher price)! Want new? Just renovate the whole resale unit based on own Interior design and it will look new and furthermore to your best liking! Not convinced? When you pay sky high prices to buy new, after a few years still become old right? What is the difference? If renovate by ownself, can even have more freedom to do as one likes (don't have to accept the crap finishing & fitting from the developers).

    The same kind of thinking manifests itself in the car market. Just that the developers cottoned onto this in the last few years.
