Are you referring to the East area? Each project has quite different resale potential, just by looking at figures alone, it may be a bit difficult to conclude. Your objectives and requirements are more important. May I understand them so as to further value-add? Which project are you considering at the moment? Thanks and hope to discuss further.

Warm regards

Hi Alvin,
You have to first ask yourself what is the purpose of buying the property ie. whether is it for own stay or for investment. Resale projects tend to be more spacious in terms of floor area and layout whereas new projects may have better facilities and landscaping which makes looking for a tenant easier. Location is also vital when it comes to purchasing a property. Property in better location ie near to MRT and amenities should also be a top concern as well.

Please feel free to contact me for further discussion. Thank you.

Good morning Alvin,

Great hearing from you!

Are you purchasing for own stay or investment?

Normally investors will go for the lower quantum units for maximum rental yield.

Probably you can share more with me so I am in a better position to advise you further

Hope to hear from you soon!

Dear Alvin,

These projects should not be compared since they have a big disparity in terms of property age therefore values will be different since the property launch price then is definitely lower than now.

We will need to inspect your objectives in this purchase before giving out more suitable advise as there is never a right or wrong advise, but which is more applicable to individual purchasers.

Good evening Alvin,

Great hearing from you again!

Do take note that as a HDB owner, you must first fulfill your minimum occupation period first before you are eligible to purchase a private property. In addition in order to hold two properties, the household must has at least one Singaporean.

Do you fulfill these two criterias? =)

As for your private property purchase, I will advise you to sort out your budget first so you can have a better idea what kind of budget you can play around with and with that budget, what are your options in D19 and 28. Don't forget the additional buyer's stamp duty. =(

Btw you have to weigh the pros and cons between different projects.

It's true that you might be able to get a spacious 14-15 years old project compared to a smaller size new project but you have to ask yourself.

Will you be able to fetch a good price when it turns 20 to 25 years old? It's a question mark.

But if you choose to hold on to it and rent it out, it should be a very good vehicle that can provide you with a good passive income due to its lower entry price.

Hope my opinions aid in your decision making.

Hear from you soon, Alvin.

Warmest Regards,

As your objective is to sell your condo 10 years later to achieve decent return, you should consider buying new launch instead of resale.

Historical data shows that new launches gives the highest capital appreciation, while resale gives a higher rental yield. And normally condo after 15 years old depreciation will accelerate.

However, if you can find a 10 year-old condo at 20% discount to nearby new launches, then it's a good deal to grab. Provided the overall quantum is acceptable. (as older condo normally comes with big size, overall price could by much higher than new ones)

Feel free to call for further discussion or email for a list of carefully shortlisted properties based on your specific criteria.

Warmest regards
