Hi there,

Thanks for writing to us on AskGuru.

Generally speaking, a new launch condo is better if faster capital appreciation is your goal; while a resale condo is better if you’re looking for rental yields.

Hope this answers your question.

1) It is like when you asked should you buy a BTO or a resale HDB flat. I'm using this to explain because the idea is similar, almost all SC knows about this/
2) You have to compare the flats in the same estate, if possible in the same area. An older HDB flat is bigger in space. A new BTO is smaller.
3) BTO can expect capital appreciation upon MOP. Resale flat capital appreciation is limited.
4) You can see the actual resale flat unit; breath, see and hear before buying. You only see pictures, maps,s, and floor plans before buying BTO.
5) The lease of a resale flat is lower, BTO flat lease is 99 yrs.
6) So you have to ask what do you want to get out of the condo?

Hope the above answer to your main concerns, but if there are more query, please feel free to contact me at 90110636, or email: ling.ck7@gmail.com if more information is needed.
I'll be glad to assist.

Best regards

Dear Buyer,
If you looking for ultra modern facilities and fittings, then a new launch will suit you. If you are looking for a larger space, a resale condo might fit your needs. It all depends on the location you are looking at and what is available in that vicinity.

Buying a home is for the long term. So, you must like the location. Then, compare what is available there and assess the projects there... both new and old. But, not all old and all new projects are the same. That is where you need professional advice. As a buyer, you do not pay any fees to me. Therefore, as professionals, we offer you the good, and the bad points of each condo and let you make a decision as per your likes and dislikes, needs and wants.

To find more on how I can assist you, do contact me as follows.
