Will There be New Prospects in 2019 for Singapore Prime Districts?

In Singapore real estate market, it may be a bit too soon to make any assumption pertaining our prime districts for 2019. In the local context, building under construction (BUC) private properties in the prime districts between 9 to 11 had been highly sought after for so many years. With the market being set to return to a full recovery in the prices for newly developed real estate by the end of 2018, it was however met with some additional cooling measures set by the government recently.

This early conclusion by the city state may be on point for 2019. However, there are various factors to watch out for nearing the end of 2018 that will better stabilize a forecast for future condo prospects in prime area. A forecast of medium to long-term outcome on the horizon of new built condo including projects that could be in the new prime districts of Singapore.

Consideration for new prospects

To prioritize consideration of new housing supply and the set limit of new high-end luxury non-landed homes around Singapore, of which residential districts are growing faster has no absolute strength of outcome. Singapore could possibly see a gradual fall in the price of new condo market especially when the supply of completed ones is heading record high soon.

Secondly, this will further include completions of new development that are listed as high-end projects stemming solely from a new injection land supply from Singapore’s government land sales, otherwise known as GLS sites, as well as high-end collective sales from 2017 to 2018. The attribute of these freehold tenure properties spreading around Singapore will certainly be enhanced in the new local market. A freehold tenure will probably play a role in the decision making.

Thirdly, is the prestige of different district home addresses around Singapore and it is envisaged to strengthen the new condo developments, especially with upcoming large-scale development like 8 Saint Thomas condo along river valley road. There are plans to recreate beautiful landscaping in Ochard Road area to bring about a consistency in rejuvenation plans for the Central area of Singapore to create a dynamic city-state centre.

Together with set and strategic efforts by Singapore government agencies to transform the landscape of Singapore or preserve existing civic, commercial and cultural amenities, this will have an effect on which districts to make the cut for becoming new prospects for prime districts in Singapore. As of now, all outlooks are uncertain but those districts that are already prime, they will not lose their dear place in the Singapore city-state.

Will Our New Condo Development be Going Underground Soon?

With much speculation, it may be imminent for the future of new condo development in Singapore. With the rapidly growing population and number of expatriates moving to Singapore, there’s becoming a need for newer condo building developments like the Amber 45 building situated at 45 Amber Road when it is near to Changi Airport and around the entire city. While Singapore is already a densely populated city state, many people are open to the idea of living underground. Newly built condo developments in underground will be a new way for the future Singapore to keep up with the demands of its ever-growing population that seeks to buy newly built condo properties.

Why do we need to build underground?

Well in theory, the population is set to grow to 7.1 million people nearing the end of the year in 2029. With such a projection, there is a large underground urbanite urbanism movement happening around Singapore that would love to see new developments underway for condo buildings underground. As a popular city state in the region, many people are beginning to flock into Singapore because of its newly developed luxury real estates. There are currently nearly 6 million people that lives across the entire city state.

Singapore may add up to 133 miles or more by underground development and with the size of the island being only 277 square miles, the need to add more mileage and building underground is becoming more apparent as we look towards the future of Singapore real estate market. The government of Singapore is becoming more and more ambitious for economic growth in Singapore as they figure out ways to stimulate more growth and keep it going around Singapore. The central government visualizes the city’s population to increase at a rapidly growing rate of 4 million people by the year 2025, which is not so far from now. With an influx of people looking for newly built condo developments in the area, maybe this is the best alternative to getting the best newly developed condo developments in Singapore by going underground.

Are we able to keep up with the new population demands?

Of course, this isn’t the first visualization for such a bold approach to build new condo housing developments underground like Amber 45, but the Singapore government believes it will work best for Singapore, especially with the expected rise in the population looking for private condo units. Due to the fact that Singapore has already started to invest nearly $200 million in underground technology R&D, the Singapore government has improved the land laws so that the residents of own property can only own underground land space limited to their basements. The law has made it advantageous for the purpose of new condo developments underground. This is so in the event a new condo development has to begin underground it will in no way having issues with people that already own the land above it.

How will it affect the infrastructure?

For the government to go underground and build deeper to keep up with the demand for new development housing market, a comprehensive housing plan firmly needs to be set into place. This will make it easier to comprehend the need to prioritize underground condo developments due to the need for space. In every aspect of infrastructure, a master plan for underground building should also help to show how money will be spent on protecting Singapore’s infrastructure as well. The Infrastructure of Singapore will need a drastic overhaul in its railway system, utilities, increase the integrity of infrastructure and a whole lot more underground as well above ground, if the decision to go underground is a more firm decision nearing 2029.

But why Amber 45?

There are a few contributing factors and being situated so conveniently next to east coast park and the beautiful beach will be the most critical factor among all as the sea water level will be increasing every year due to the global climate changes which is unavoidable for us.

Singapore – You may be looking at the current market place to decide whether it is the right time for you to buy Park Colonial or rent a condo after the breaking news from our Budget day 2018. The decision that you make will probably depend on a bunch of factors before you finalized your decision. If you are having a hard time trying to figure out the best option for yourself, whether to rent or to pursue a private home at Upper Serangoon, we are pleased to help you along with your journey from here as a consulting firm.

Identify your needs for renting or Park Colonial condo

Before finalizing your decision to rent or purchase a condo you’ll need to identify your specific needs for doing so. Are you buying or renting a condo to get more space? Do you want more freedom of space? Do you need a space that you can tailor to your specific needs? Buying a condo allows you to make any changes that you want to the condo. By being the owner of Park Colonial Condo, it gives you the freedom to make invasive changes to the interior of the unit, such as renovating and expanding the space to your taste.

If you are renting the space, you’re only moving into the space as a tenant without the right to make any changes to the condo, except for decorating it. Management Committee Members won’t allow tenants who lease the unit to make any significant permanent changes to any interior spaces within a condo. Depending on your need for this, you probably would want to find out more on what you can do in the condo to make a better decision towards renting or owning it forever.

Determining your household budget

Considering that buying Park Colonial or renting a condo somewhere else can significantly impact your budget both ways, you’ll need to be fully aware of your budget in all financial aspects. Buying a condo should be within a comfortable purchase price point for you. Also renting should be within a comfortable renting budget as well. As a rule of thumb, we want to purchase a condo where the purchase price doesn’t exceed our four-year combined salary that you’re gonna make yearly. If purchasing the condo exceeds your four-year combined salary, then it may be more affordable for you to rent the condo as opposed to purchasing it. If you really want to purchase it, Park Colonial location at Woodleigh Lane might fit into your budget as they have 805 apartments for you to choose from.

Compare the long-term costs of buying and renting

Although you can pay just about the same amount to rent or paying via mortgage loan, you probably want to choose the option that is most affordable and gets you the most advantages. If you plan on living in the same area for a longer length of time, then buying Park Colonial condo will be the best option for you.

You can build equity in the condo unit after you purchase it, where your ownership will then pay it off largely. Otherwise, renting is more geared towards a short-term stay, but many people do rent for lengthy amounts of time as well.
