Hi Mrs Wong

It depends on your preferences actually. But please take into consideration the location and potential resale value too.

Do let me know which 2 condos you are thinking of buying, and i will tell you the pros and cons. You can then make up your mind.

Hi Mrs Wong,

Firstly, it very much depends on your living needs. Will a smaller space compromise the quality of living for your family or the smaller apartment has sufficient living space. You are going to spend 6 years there as you have mentioned therefore family comfort is also something you may want to look into. Does the age matter over living space? Which is more important?

If all other things are neutral other than age and space, and the living space is not an issue, it is quite easy to say that the 2 years old development should be a safer option to purchase, assuming both are leasehold properties.

Hi Mrs. Wong,

It depends on the lifestyle requirements of your family and location/proximity to amenities. Resale value also plays a part if you have other plans next time, and with limited info its difficult to give you my best recommendations. Thanks and hope to understand your requirements and discuss further.

Warm regards

Hi Ms Jen, if you are not intending to stay long at the new unit purchase as per mentioned, then it will be advisable to go for a newer unit with smaller space. As the capital appreciation will definitely be higher as compared to the older units when the time arises to dispose off this unit.

Hi Mrs Wong,

Are you aware of the revised or latest rulings with regards to home-school distance category priority made by MOE? If your child is going to primary 1 in 2017, you might have missed the boat.
Thus, your criteria for the selection of property may need to be revise accordingly if you are still intending to buy a private property.

Best regards. Read More

Hi Jen,

It is very much a personal preference, if $ is not an issue.

Newer condos tend to have smaller units, built to its max GFA.
While older condos have bigger sized units, and very often their GFAs are not fully utilized.

Many buyers purchased older condos for their larger size, squarish layout, no useless space etc.

If you can accept the smaller size condo, then should go for the newer one. A 2 year old condo should be still new, less renovation required. It have lesser chance of structure problem. Where for the older condo, if it is a renovated unit, then can consider too.

To assist and advise you more in details, kindly drop me an email for me to share.

I am contactable at my mobile or email.

I would strongly advise to reaffirm your own lifestyle preferences so as to make an informed choice. Perhaps you can share with me your requirements and objectives so that I can narrow down your options and perhaps be in a better position to advise accordingly. Thanks!
