Hi there, thanks for writing to us on AskGuru.

According to our data, over the past 8 years, Alexis recorded a -1.91% capital gains annualised over the past 8 years. Meanwhile, the rental yield averages 3.55%. Based on this, Alexis may be better as investment property for rental income rather than for capital appreciation.

We advise you to engage an agent who will be able to advise you in greater detail.

Hope this answers your question.

Best Regards,

Hi,

1) Alexis is a freehold apartment consists of 293 units, TOP in 2012.
2) The peak psf was in 2015 at $1,716. The avg psf now is around $1,337. Looking at the price trend for Alexis is a upside down "U" shape graph since 2009 till now.
3) There are 209 profit transactions, and 18 non-profit transactions. Profit transaction period starts from 2009 till 2021. Non-profit transactions are from 2016 to 2021. This explain the downward curve from the peak.
4) The main reason for a new project price is clawing upward is because there is only 1 owner (developer). Developer can decide and able to sustain the period not to reduce the price so as not to affet their profit eventually.
5) Once the resale cycle starts, it is individual selling 1 or at most 2 units in the same development. Thus some seller might willing to collect lower profit or even loss to dispose of the unit.
6) When such situation happened, no one is there to control the pricing. Every individual has their own tolerance level on profit and loss. Most of the time the resale price will be fluctuated around a threshold level.
7) In this Alexis, what we are seeing is every seller is selling lower and lower. Reasons could be many, one of it could be some felt they had make enough from the rental, and thus willing to let go even at breakeven price.
8) Usually when this happen, the unit will be selling cheaper and cheaper. Because the cheaper units are selling of and left behind those who are asking for higher price. These sellers had no choice but to let go at a lower price.
9) So for you to buy now, it sound cheap when compare to other new development. But if this price trend continue, it will be difficult for one individual to turn the whole price trend around.

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.

Dear Sir/Mdm,

If you are buying for investment and want to sell at a profit a few years later, Alexis may not be a good option because if you had looked into the price trend and transaction data for Alexis, you would realize that this project had reached its peak in 2014 and it has been on the down trend since then.

If you are buying this for investment, you will need to be mentally prepared that you will not be able to earn a profit. Please feel free to contact me so that I can share with you more on how to spot a property with upside potential.

Hi,

I would be most glad to assist you further and please feel free to let me know if you need any assistance. Have a good day ahead. By the way, I don’t think you would be making a loss for this project and even if the valuation does not seem to match what you are looking for by then, you could consider renting it out as this project has a good rental yield.

Hi,

If you're looking to purchase for your own stay, and if you like the environment, then you may wish to proceed, because it's something you like.

However, if you're looking to purchase for investment, I would recommend you to look at Commonwealth Towers instead. I do have a unit that's selling with good tenancy which you can consider.

I am experienced and well-versed in both HDB and private transactions. I will be able to assist you in your property plans. Please get in touch with me for a more in-depth discussion.
