Hi Selvi,

May I know which project you are looking at? ECs supply are selling out fast hence it is unlikely developer will allow buyers to view actual units. I be happy to share more on the past projects done by the various developers and offer some inputs. Generally speaking new EC is a pretty limited market for choice as government has released limited land parcels this past 2 years, most current EC projects on the market are approx 70% sold. May I have more info and requirements about your plans so to make better recommendations? Thanks and look forward to value-add to your housing plans.

Warm Regards,

-- HDB BTO 4rm Sellers Mr. Farvin & Ms. Sel --

Ivan was the first agent that we met up with and right from the offset we had good vibes as he has a friendly personal approach, detailed working style and focuses on building the long-term relationship.

Our unit comes with its challenges but Ivan remained positive and had no qualms committing to our plans right from the start. It took only 6 weeks of aggressive marketing for him to secure a good offer which was a pleasant surprise in the end.

Ivan was always responsive and we had no worries to pass him the house keys. The whole process was transparent and hassle free, and he was always thinking from our point of view on how to make life easier for the client. He is a committed professional and has fast execution, so we felt assured that things are done well and we can entrust the sale process entirely to him.

--- HDB Flat Upgraders Mr. & Mrs. Lee ---

We decided to engage Ivan as our agent as we were impressed with how he answered the enquiries on property guru website.

He has helped us to find our ideal unit and also sold our current unit. He was very patient and never pushy when we were looking for our ideal unit. He would tell us that it is always important to find a unit that we really liked.

When it comes to selling of our unit, he was always prompt in arranging for viewings and he also tried his best to arrange and consolidate the viewings due to our time constraints. He is a reliable and prompt agent and is always willing to clarify any concerns and questions that we have.

Thanks Ivan! :)

Hi Ms Selvi,

There is usually a defect liability period where the home owners will do a defects inspection upon taking possession of the apartment and developers will make good any defects.

I am unsure what quality are you looking out for in a project especially since you are looking at ECs, where there will only be limited units balance upon TOP which are usually the less desired units by mass consumer mainly due to facing of the unit.

Let's discuss more about what are your requirements and concerns such that we can possibly work out on a more concrete action plans moving forward.

Hi Ms Selvi,

There will be bound to have defect with both HDB or private build project.
Thus there is a defect liability period to rectify the small flaws found in each particular unit.

The major comparison that you can do is the location, facing, level & size.
It is not easy to define "quality", the fact is all of them have to meet building & construction standard set by URA & CSC.

To view unit upon TOP is unlikely possible, as they do not open for viewing except for some of private project I've come across. These show units are usually used as developer's "office" that are open for viewing.

All developers in Singapore are well established even for foreign company who won the EC project bid. There are certain criteria set by URA before allowing them to take part in the bidding, in terms of capital, experience, number of project built etc.

There are no additional cost if you engage an agent to brief you through and bring you to any of these EC's show flat if there are any available.
Thus I would strongly suggest you go ahead to discuss with any real estate salesperson to assist you in your selection.

Hope the above answer to your main concerns, but if there are more queries, 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

Hi Selvi,

You should look at the main con and sub con instead of the Developer.

If you're looking at EC, there aren't many units left in the market. Of course you can wait till it TOP to consider, but chances are there will be no units left for you. Even if there are units left, you will not be able to get your choice units too.

Alternatively, you may wish to consider private condo instead. There are some private condo priced attractively in today's market. And you will also be able to loan more for condo as compared to EC.

Should you need any further assistance in matters relating to property, please contact me at my mobile 9748 6305. I will be happy to assess and share with you the possibilities for you and your partner in the current market.

Thank you.

Best regards,

Hi Ms. Selvi Shanti

Although the construction of EC is done by private developers, there are compliance to be met as set out by the relevant authorities.

You may also have your own processes to determine the standard such as an established developer, comparing different projects, knowing who are the various contractors etc.

in any case, I can assume from your questions that you are likely a first timer. It would be good therefore to work with an agent.

You may write to gavin.ng@orangetee.com

I believe you are referring to one of the Yishun ECs? Its unfortunate you had a poor client experience, sorry to hear about that. It is perhaps why going through an agent might get you a better experience. There is also no commission payable by buyers of new ECs, as developers are paying the service fees. Too clarify, if we are talking about 100+ units out of a total of 500+ units, I believe the at least 70% sold claim has some basis. In fact from regular tracking of my database, we are looking at approx 100+/- units left for each EC project on the market. (For example Brownstone has less than 10, Visionaire 1 unit, Criterion and INZ less than 50, Northwave less than 100, and so on). At the going take-up rate of progress for EC units, I believe the ECs will be most if not fully sold by the time they attain TOP. It is from my honest opinion based on experience, and not some sales tactic. The residents I guess may also not share honestly with you even if there are major defects in the unit, sparing potential embarrassment since after all they have made a big ticket purchase. If you are only keen on new ECs from developers, the options could be limited.

May I have more info and requirements about your plans so to make better recommendations? Thanks and look forward to value-add to your housing plans.

Hi there,

Evidently, purchasing a property requires through and critical thinking. Let's catch up at 96659926 for me to work out a financial calculation breakdown for your purchase and share more insights on the transaction caveats as well as the price analysis of both proposed private property types to help you make an informed decision. Do note that it is purely non obligatory and the only objective of the discussion should be to enlighten you on the differences, work out your finances to propose which projects you may wish to consider and aide in the price charting of units in the market. There is no point obtaining wishy washy statements from everywhere. You might as well consolidate all the key information and understand the market procedure well enough before taking the step.

Should you be keen on availing my consultation and services, do note that there is no agent fees involved and I will walk you through this whole tedious process of : explanation of procedure, shortlisting, negotiation, paperwork, establishing financial projections / application of loan, sharing of market insights, providing up to date transaction caveats & price analysis of properties as well as and handling all technical and legal matters at NO cost!
