Hi Amirah, thanks for writing to us on AskGuru.

A project pricing is based on many factors such as land costs and so on.

As for Executive Condominiums (ECs) as an investment, you must fulfil the Minimum Occupation Period (MOP) before an EC can be sold.

ECs are comparable to private condominiums in terms of design and facilities. They are built and designed by private developers for higher-income Singaporeans.

An EC can be sold in the open market after it has met its 5-year Minimum Occupation Period (MOP). This is computed from the date of issuance of the Temporary Occupation Permit (TOP). After the 5-year MOP, from the 6th to 10th year, ECs can be sold in the open market to Singaporeans and PRs only.

After the 10th year, it can be sold in the open market to foreigners and corporate bodies.

Hope this answers your question.

Best Regards,

Hi Amirah,

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, if it is for investment purpose and not really for stay, it is advisable that you go for a new launch project instead and that will maximise your capital appreciation. Hope to be able to share more with you.

Why Watercolours? Buying for home stay or investment does come with a different set of considerations.

Hi Amirah,

The price of Watercolours EC has increased quite significantly since the launch and although it may seem affordable but if it is for investment purposes, they may not be the best option in the market currently.

Please feel free to contact me so that I can understand your objectives and share with you more analysis of the market.
