    If u buy hillview now, be prepared to accept the lousy rental yield. I know someone who bought hillington as first owner, px then was 800k plus n it has gone up to $1.4 million for three bedder. Years ago, rental was $3k plus, today it is still $3.5k even if u buy at 1.3-1.4 million

    Hillview area has limited upside.

    I thought Glendale park is the nearest to the Hillview MRT and new shopping mall just accross the road. I buying for own stay and for capital gain. So, i think Glendale is the best choice right?

    May i know what you mean by limited upside? Its no capital gain potential? But when MRT is completed, price will be up by at least 10% right?

    Looking forward to the master plan 2013, may I know roughly when would it be announced? GP is the nearest to mrt, together with the other FH next to it.

    I hope the master plan 2013 will not be out so early as my bullets are only really by end of Nov. Anyway, i believe the hillview areas have too many condos thats why prices are not as good as compared to other places. Tenants and buyers can choosy on their pick.

    My new friend who live at Hillview heights told me there will be a 28 stories new condo directly in front of Glendale Park across the road. The new building will block all the wind and will be very hot for the resident there. The traffic also not very smooth for hillview. Its true?

    Depends. There are people who prefer exclusively private estates, e.g. Hillview, Bukit Timah, East Coast etc. Of course if your plan is to invest in an area where is mainly HDB flats with few condos or landed like Jurong or Tampines, also can. To each his own. Exclusively private estates have their charm. No 2 condos look alike (esp the older ones where developers engage real architects) which adds to the character of the area.

    Prices are pretty good. New launches at ~1400psf and Hillington/Glendale $1100psf or so. Better prices than many RCR/OCR old condos liao - bear in mind many of the old condos have fairly large units, unlike places like D15 or Balestier where the high PSF sometimes is due to studios and MMs with low quantums.

    Glendale Park will have Hillier opposite which is close to the shopping mall and MRT station. Also, Hiller actually block the west sun which adds shade to Glendale Park. Nowadays people seem to hate west sun. And it's a nicer condo in terms of landscape etc. Every condo has its pros and cons.

    But you could be right the construction at Upper Bukit Timah for the MRT might have affected the value somewhat at $1100psf thereabou. But that is temporary.
