With the seventh lunar month round the corner, developers are slowing down on new property launches. Still, say industry watchers, the current exuberance may bring some action in this traditionally quiet season. Tan Hui Leng finds out what's in store this weekend.

1 Cabana by Far East Organization

A resort-style cluster development, Cabana is located at Sunrise Terrace near Yio Chu Kang MRT station. This weekend's launch will see 25 out of a total of 119 landed terrace homes up for grabs. Unit sizes range from 2,800 sq ft to 3,000 sq ft. Prices this weekend start at $1.78 million for a 2,917 sq ft unit. Each three-storey home comes with four bedrooms and a roof garden. The tenure of the development is 103 years. Walk-in viewings available.

2 Centro by Far East Org

The developer of this upcoming condominium beside Ang Mo Kio MRT station still has units left in its Phase 1 launch, starting from $1,100 psf. Centro is a 329-unit development that is expected to obtain its Temporary Occupation Permit in 2015.

3 Livia by City Developments

If you thought you had missed the boat on Livia, fret not. Twenty units will be on sale this weekend. First launched last July, Livia is a 99-year leasehold property with a total of 724 units. Located in Pasir Ris, 650 units in the projects have already been launched and mostly sold. The development consists of 10 blocks of 15- and 16- storey flats with basement car parks, swimming pool and communal facilities. The average price is $650 psf and the project is expected to be completed in 2011.
