Hi there, thanks for writing to us on AskGuru.

Capital appreciation is very much dependent on the market situation, demand and supply, the URA's master plan, infrastructure projects nearby, MRT stations, amenities and economic drivers, just to name a few.

When looking at capital appreciation, you will need to look into URA's Master Plan if there will be any infrastructure projects that may enhance your property value in the near future.

You may refer to our District Guide here: https://www.propertyguru.com.sg/areainsider

Hope this answers your question.

Best Regards,

How do you determine if it's a good buy? It is very subjective and encompasses various factors. One may feel it's a good buy, while another may feel otherwise.

In terms of appreciation value, generally properties in Singapore appreciates over the long run, albeit different projectories. However, whether the property can appreciate faster than inflation rate, this is something I feel you should look further in depth into.

Also, if you're looking for your own stay, I think you should also consider other factors apart from price appreciation. I would say some of these factors may even outweigh the price appreciation factor for some families.

For resale DBSS, the policy, status and eligibility of purchasing one is exactly like HDB. While private properties always have an enbloc potential at some point, there is no such possibility for DBSS at the moment as the land belongs to HDB and it is not a strata titled development. From my observation, these kind of units attracts mostly higher income first timers who did not want to purchase a private property as they want to make use of first timer grants or private property downgrader. The risk and reward of buying one is exactly the same as any other HDB units and private property have a much higher chances of good appreciation value in future.
