Investing in an EC in Yio Chu Kang

No Comments

Purchasing an executive condo could prove to be a good investing strategy. According to data coming from URA, in the Q1 2016 there were 2,901 vacant executive condo units. This represents 88.4 percent increase, comparing with the 1,540 available on the market in the prior quarter. According to real estate marketing research, the executive condo vacancy rate is currently 14.3 percent. Real estate market analysts explain this increasing number of vacant units as a result of the growing completed supply as well as an effect of the time lag between owners moving in and project completion. Many are many ECs located in Singapore such as Choa Chu Kang and Yio Chu Kang area.

The growing number of vacant executive condo units could also be explained in part as an effect of owners purchasing executive condos for investment purposes only. During the MOP period, these owners are usually choosing to leave the unit empty. Let’s analyze whether it make more sense for an eligible buyer to purchase a condominium unit or an executive condo purely for investment purposes.

Investing in an EC Home in Singapore

For instance, we may assume that a couple plans to invest in either a private or an executive condo. They live in another home that is not under their name (perhaps parents’ home) and, during the MOP period, they have the intention to leave the executive condo unit empty. Reputable developers are also interested in EC land such as CDL and Hoi Hup Realty.

An executive condo in today’s market has a median unit cost of S$783 psf. This means that the purchase price will be around S$861,000 for a 1,100 square foot unit. On the other side, assuming there is a 20 percent price gap between ECs and Condo, a comparable condo unit would cost an estimated S$1,075,000.

EC in Yio Chu Kang Road Highly Popular

Let’s assume that the couple has a household income of $14,000. They take up a mortgage of 80 percent loan-to-value (LTV) for 25 years. The mortgage comes with a fixed rate of 2.5 percent per year. Over a period of 10 years, the rent for the unit is fixed at S$3,000 per month. Other costs such as taxes, maintenance fees, stamp duties have not been included in this example, for simplification purposes. In particular, Yio Chu Kang EC is quite popular due to its location.

We assume that the condo’s value has appreciated by 10 percent 5 years after completion. Upon fulfillment of MOP, the EC should have appreciated by 25 percent, assuming the price gap between ECs and condos narrows to 9 percent. In the mid-term (first 5 years), the condo is still a better investment than the EC, despite a capital appreciation that is superior for the ECs. The explanation for this is the fact that during the MOP an EC cannot be fully rented out, while the rental income from the condo can offset the monthly mortgage payments.

Reputable Developers like Hoi Hup

As compared to the private condo, in the first 5 years, the EC investment incurs higher net holding costs and overwhelms its superior capital appreciation. Assuming that the price gap goes down further to 5 percent and the condo appreciates by 20 percent, at privatization executive condos would outperform a private condo. The couple can rent out unrestricted the entire executive condo after MOP, and mitigate their holding costs. Rental income would significantly defray holding costs, leading to a dominant effect of the capital appreciation in ECs. Only 10 years after MOP, the EC will be able to outperform the condo.

The Martin Residences Showflat and Review Prices

No Comments

In recent years the construction sector and real estate businesses in Singapore have remaining relatively buoyant compared to many other countries. In many respects that has been due to the government of the island leasing out land for either retail development or the building of residential units. This has been a really sensible strategy to pursue as the people of the island love to shop while there have been major concerns that there would a shortage of housing. Singapore is small yet densely populated nation so land for building homes has tended to be in short supply. The Martin Residences Condo are being built on a land parcel that the government put up for tender.

The Martin Residences Showflat and Pricing

At the moment whichever firm or consortium wins the 99 year leases on land are deciding to build high rise towers of executive condos. It actually makes a great deal of sense to build complexes of condos on these parcels of land. More units can be completed for a square foot, and people like the idea of living in a luxury condo. The luxury look and feel of The Martin Residences showflat will go a long way in selling units without the need to highlight other attractions or advantages of living in the new complex.

The Martin Residence Floor Plans and Prices

The astute location of the new Martin Residences is arguably a great selling point as well. Travel to the city centre is really easy, especially when you consider how close the Great World City MRT station is to it. People that need to live near shops will find the new condos great in that regard as the Great World City Shopping Centre and the Concorde Shopping Centre are only a short distance from them.

If there is one thing that the people of Singapore take seriously it is shopping. Several brand new shopping malls have been opened in recent times near The Martin Residence showroom by Guocoland and prices are available soon, while the ones that were already open have sought refuge and improvements. Sopping centres are therefore in competition with each other as they seek to keep loyal shoppers whilst attempting to take custom away from all of their rivals. The developers of the new Concorde Shopping Centre are well aware of the competitive nature of the retail sector in the country and planned accordingly.

The Martin Residences Martin Place Address

They believe that their new mall is in a sound location near to The Martin Residences launch with regards to gaining custom at the expense of their rivals. Around the new centre there are car parking spaces available, which attracts shoppers that like to drive to shopping centres. People will have no problems getting to the new complex by bus, or MRT as both stop within a short walking distance of the centres itself.

Some of the recently finished condo complexes and the new one under construction at The Martin Residences Guocoland are close to the Concorde Shopping Centre too. This centre is hoping that people who have recently moved into the area, or will move into the district will shop there. However living or working close by to a shopping mall does not automatically mean that people will want to shop there. If the stores are unappealing or the facilities are poor then people may take their somewhere else, even if it involves more traveling time. To that end the centre is home to stores run by blue chip firms, has a fine eating section as well as a cinema and gym facilities.
