    Default Selling The Floravale (1324sqft) -Owner selling

    Dear all

    I am thinking to sell off my unit at The Floravale (1324sqft).OWNER HERE.

    Nicely and neatly renovated.Clean and bright, windy , NS Facing.

    Level #09.Only master room is pool facing. Living room facing the other side (HDB side). Totally unblock view.Near to 1 of the side gate towards Gek Poh shopping centre.

    3 bedrooms + 1 maid's room +1 dinner room +1 living room,1 store room , 1 kitchen + 3 toilets + 1washing/hanging clothes area (for washing machine)


    Whole unit well maintain.Cos my maid cleans it everyday.

    Quarterly maintainence is $592 (inclusive GST).

    I have no intention of going thru an agent as this will save cost for both sellers and buyers whereby paperwork can be easily done without much hassel.

    I believe buyers would prefer to have direct contact with sellers.


    I am looking at $720k.

    please feel free to drop me a message here or leave your e-mail address here if you wants a photo to see it.

    Any other questions, pls feel free to ask

    Oh yes,

    Forget to mention that there is a free feeder bus from The Floravale to Boon Lay MRT daily till Sat on an interval of 15mins

    There is a schedule to it. The bus is white in color and printed with "The floravale " logo on it

    obviously your asking has been met but you are looking for further offers.

    owner's right. sometimes a offer is not a true offer until u grant the option.

    yes..my asking have been met and even higher by 10k.But last week was just the first week which i allow for viewing.

    As mentioned, there are further viewings on this coming weekend.

    the offer came in a suprise from a couple who viewed first time.there are 2 couples/families which is 2nd viewing but made no further offer, so call KIV.

    the offer is from a china nationalities.came in less than 15mins and i did not even manage to speak to them at all..Just say hello and smile smile here and there only...yet they offer 730k later in the evening day.

    but this has been what we have been expecting right? china nationalities snapping up our properties without much thought? locals find it hard to part with the cash, especially if above valuation.

    yeah....but its nt really cash over valuation.

    the bank can still match it as valuation if its another 20k to 30k..

    i have checked with my own banker and its no problem...

    frankly speaking, i would still prefer to sell direct to buyers . by-passing agents.

    It would be saving on commissioning and i dun mind lowering my expectation which is good for both me and buyer.

    well, lets see how it goes.....

    No agent involved, can market a little bit more, then decide.

    But buyers very wary nowadays...

    You can always take your time to check the market pricing. When your target is near and you set your asking price, then stick to it. Once your asking is met, just sell it.

    I think it's not ethical to keep changing asking price. Don't waste others' time and agents' time too.

    I went to see Floravale.

    I decided not to buy.

    Whilst I was viewing in the afternoon, I could hear F16s turning in to land at Tengah, unless you want to run aircond the whole day, otherwise, the sound was loud, though not as bad as in Summerdale, where the planes are overhead. The owner innocently told me that the F16s are not so bad, as her windows will rattle when there is SAFTI live-firing.

    There are 2 car park lots per unit, but some units have 4 cars, so the whole approach road(thru Westwood landed properties) is full of cars in the evening, from Floravale owners with no lots for their cars.

    The pools are nestled between 2 rows of blocks of apartments, though the afternoon was hot, the water was freezing(subjective), cos not enough sun reaches the water, some may like this, but I did not. The pool was crowded on a weekday afternoon. Seller told me weekends, pool and common areas are chock full of people and become a NO GO zone for her family. She did not know how many units in total on the development, but I think more than 700.

    Advantage is maintenance is $500 every 3 months for a 3 room apartment, relatively cheap.

    F16 is more now due to national day parade...

    as for the pool, i think its common that usually, weekend, its pack with kids.....i saw more kids swimming rather than adults.....

    well, there are alot of kids having swimming lesson on the weekends....specially on the afternoon time.

    there are only 500+ units in the floravale.Not 700+...hope i am not wrong....

    Stay in Jurong, works in Jurong Island...drive into a nightmare every morning trying to get to work.

    I have seen the jams towards Jurong Island, 3 lanes of cars parked bumper to bumper.

    I wonder how anyone can get used to that type of traffic.

    Even taxi drivers avoids those roads if they can, unless they have a passenger on board, then it is paid for, all the waiting behind the wheel.

    Would like to hear from the experts here...how much do you think it will command in terms of psf after it is fully privatized this coming oct. Do you think this place could attract foreigners?

    This project is good for those living/working in west... it's near industrial area can hear very loud fighter planes over centris. If centris which is worst than this can sell better in terms of psf... this one will play catching up.

    Jurong projects, many units available! caspian is also doing relatively well in the subsale market.
