8 saint thomas condo

A Resurgence of New Prime Condo Development Investors Targeting 8 Saint Thomas

Since Singapore’s new development condo real estate property market has improved dramatically, there’s a huge resurgence of investors making their way back into the condo real estate market. Especially along Prime River Valley Road where 8 Saint Thomas is. Why is this so? There was a huge boost in investment property prospects ranks throughout Singapore. Ultimately, the reason why there was a huge boost is simply because the market is doing better and bottoming out, but even with the market doing better, those ranking was still at the bottom in 2017. Those investment prospect rankings that were so low, are now elevated to the third place in the Singapore condo property market. This has brought back many foreign investors targeting top luxury condos like 8 Saint Thomas at 8 Saint Thomas Walk.

The emerging trends for resurgence

Well, the trends show throughout Singapore in the new development condo market that the sentiment in the rather large resurgence of 2018, is due to the fact that major developers are ready to take on the stabilizing real estate market and this is why they are coming back to the real estate condo property market, so they can invest now before it’s too late. However, some may think that this resurgence is premature, although the market is on the upturn, they’re not certain if it’s too soon to be making any kind of significantly large purchases for investment property, despite the investment prospect rankings for 2018.

The new development – PRIME residential condo sector

The new development condo real estate sector is on the upturn, but its showing imminent signs of a boosted recovery with rising investment transactions for condo property for the first time in the past 4 years. This is also why there has been such a price hike in the new condo development market. Especially those high-end luxury projects in and around Orchard Road and River Valley. Amid the rise in investment transactions, the sales of investment sites to ambitious developers has somewhat put a limit on the supply of investment property and developers want these land sites so they can bring more real estate investments to the market and ultimately gain through these investments.

What about the market rebound?

The rebound for the new condo development housing market is a sustainable market and seems likely that it’ll remain that way for the immediate future, but with forecasts in the condo property market shows it’s likely it will remain sustainable further than what is predicted, which is sustainability up to 2030. Many developers have been actively buying prime district sites around Singapore (River Valley Road in particular) and elevating the property site auctions because these land bank sites are in demand locally. These elevated auction prices of land for newly developed condo real estate significantly rose since the beginning of 2017.

The new developed condo private residential market rebound could be due to the partial cooling measures of the government. Since this may be the case, the cooling measure have eased the seller’s stamp duty during the end of February. It may have done less to help new condo developer investment funds, but there is a slight advantage to the eased of seller’s stamp duty, because the extra funds applicable to the seller may ultimately show a larger boost on return in the investment properties. This is why there is a large resurgence of property development investors in the 2018 new condo property market moving forward.

park colonial

Buying Park Colonial Condo at Woodleigh

Are you looking to purchase your first home? Well, there are many great options available when it comes to buying a home. Developments such as PARK COLONIAL at Woodleigh Lane are largely gaining more popularity when it comes to home purchases. A condo in Singapore is not only a dwelling for residential use, but condominiums are advantageous for people looking to buy homes when they have great amenities inside as well as outside surrounding the property. Condos are generally large complexes with divided and sold individual units. Although, condo buildings are seen as buildings, they can take the form of many different property structures.

Knowing what makes a condo a condo

A condominium, often referred to as a condo, some parts are owned privately by you, which is your residence and the other parts of the building such as the common areas are owned by all of the residents, collectively that live in the building. However, many people may see owning a condo as just owning an apartment, but there are several advantages to owning a condo vs. the traditional residential single-family home. Condo developments offer you more unique amenities that a traditional single-family home most likely won’t.

Condos are popular in areas with higher property values

Condominiums are very desirable in places with substantially higher property values. They are most soft-after in urbanized residential areas, as well as suburban areas because they provide a more affordable solution for people who are looking to buy a home but want to live in a great neighbourhood. Why is this so? A single family detached home is generally more expensive in all aspects, in many areas, especially where any additional residential building spaces are widely inadequate to the area. Therefore, for people to live in the area under affordable means, condos present the best choice for living among expensive real-estate.

Searching for the right condo

Since there are many options, searching for the right condo is an essential process for you and your family. A condominium purchase should be a comfortable experience for you when purchasing the condo. You should be able to enjoy not only your residential dwelling, but the surroundings of the condo as well. Living in a condominium, you are owning/sharing your lobby and other common areas with all the residents in the building. You also pay building maintenance fees for the upkeep of these areas. Finding the right condominium is a process that has to be well thought out when it comes to getting all of the amenities that you desire and right prices when looking to potentially acquire them.

Condos are most sought after properties because of the affordability, functionality for residential living and amenities they provide homeowners. When getting ready to purchase a condo, you should make sure that the overall condo building can offer you the requirements you seek for a condo property. Since condos are an owned individual unit with shared/owned common areas, you’ll want to make sure the building is suitable to your needs and/or your family as well.

Recommended development for you

Therefore, we highly recommend Park Colonial as your first choice when it comes to purchasing your first home. It is located very conveniently beside Woodleigh MRT station for your traveling needs should you require them. They have a good mixture of unit layouts for you to choose from as well as sufficient amenities right across the street and with a shopping mall for your daily needs.

Amber 45 at amber road, were once a plot of land occupied by Ban Nee Chen Pte Ltd, a homegrown landscaping and floral business including horticulture running for more than 30 years in the local market. They will soon be making way for a brand new modern and luxury residential development.

This freehold site was owned by the developer Sin Lian Huat and it was sold to UOL Group Limited via a private treaty agreement sale back in January 2017. For the purchase price of $156 million exactly a year ago.

If you do not know where the location of this new condo is, it is located right in between The Sea View condo as well as The Shore Residences (Opposite Katong Shopping Centre). A relatively small plot of land with about seventy thousand square foot in size.

Buying a Proper Land

Tips for Buying Proper Land

Buying a piece of land can be very hard, especially if you are doing it for the first time. There might be several reasons why you are buying an empty plot; you might want to build a brand new house in the plot or want to start a long-term investment or even plan to start your own business in the plot. Whatever be your intentions, you need to do a lot of research and know a lot before you invest in a property.

Buying a Proper Land

The following are some of the tips you can use to buy a piece of land:

  • Choose your location wisely.
  • Check for easy transport facilities.
  • Water, sewer and drainage facilities.
  • Get a survey which defines the property.
  • Hire a real estate agent.

Choose your location wisely:

Location of the land is one of the most important things to check before you buy any piece of land. Depending on what purpose you are buying the property you need to select the location, if you want to run a business then make sure that the location is not far from your potential customers. If you are buying a property as an investment, then make sure that the property has a high resale value otherwise, it is a loss for you. If you are thinking of building a home, then buy a land that has a good neighborhood which has easy access to grocery shops and other resources that you may need.

Check for easy transport facilities:

Make sure that you get a property that has vehicular access to a public road. Especially, if you are buying a land in the countryside, then you need to have a road to your piece of land. If the location does not have proper road facilities, try to get a proper easement and the rights of way.

Water, sewer and drainage facilities:

Water supply is essential for any piece of land you purchase. The water, sewer, and drainage are some of the critical concerns that you need to look. Make sure that you have the right to use any water body that runs near your location. There might be laws which require you to keep your livestock t at a certain distance from the water body.

Get a survey which defines the property:

Sometimes the survey which is done on the land can be outdated. So, it is always advisable to get a new survey and make sure that your property line is defined. These are important when you have to delve into legal matters like easements. The survey can also help you to have a rough idea of the dimensions of the house if you are planning to build on the vacant land.

Hire a real estate agent:

Real estate agents are professionals who are trained to help you out with various processes in buying a property. They can guide you on what property to buy and deal with the sellers and get you a great deal.
