don’t know what made them decide to allow what they consider as the riff raff citizens to be allowed back into the city area.

That few existing HDB blocks at Farrer Park View are Gems.  The MRT entrance is just below those blocks and it is underground all the way to City Square Mall.  And Farrer Park MRT is just like 2 stops away from Dhoby Ghaut?  

Now with the new BTOs there, the prices in the vicinity will just go up and up! 

 

Those existing HDB blocks there even dont have this new BTOs coming up, the price also not cheap lo. But farrer park that area i not very interested, cause near to little india. 😂

Empty land next to MRT, hdb, as long as not in main cbd. I think there would still be some in the heart of the cbd, but much less. 

next plot I foresee is at the old lakeview estate. 
anyway they want to reverse the previous policy of placing middle and lower income citizens away from the city center. 
don’t know what made them decide to allow what they consider as the riff raff citizens to be allowed back into the city area. 
 

They are building many new HDB in those empty land, then the surrounding those old HDB would never have a chance to get SERS, since no more empty land. Next time there will be tons of old HDB around, dont know how would they maintain all these old flats? This might become a problem in future.

Wasn’t the plan mentioned a couple of years back? VERS and SERS and some upgrading?

If one puts aside its biasness over it being close to Little India, the Farrer Park location is 1st class in terms of convenience and being close to Orchard/downtown, much better than other locations like Bishan or Tiong Bahru with its $million + HDBs. Can reach middle of Orchard Road within 5 minutes.

Earliest lease run out would be in the 2060s and with more in the 2070s, had hoped it was the STI flats at tiong bahru, but now accorded conservation, so next would be the queenstown, bukit merah lot.

If they wait until then, then U turn might be too late due to too many old flats reaching lease run out at that time. I pity the gament who is running the policy when reach that time, as the current 3G and even 4G dont think would be around liao.

Actually Tiong Baru/Queenstown area go to orchard rd/downtown also not that far, can reach within 15 mins. If you say HDB area close to orchard rd/downtown, the other area not far from farrer park location which is boon keng/whampoa also very near to orchard rd/downtown. And yet you do not see they are developing that area much, esp the whampoa HDB area.

i am afraid property prices have peaked

its all the way down from here

Still very affordable

Singstat

https://tablebuilder.singstat.gov.sg/table/CT/17717

Median Monthly Household Income : $9,520 ($114,240 annum)

30% of the above is $2856.

25% loan tenure of 2.6% = $2,037

Average 4-room resale flat price : $528,221

Can borrow up to 85% so it's obvious home prices are still affordable.

:grin:

Many young couples already exceed $9,520 monthly, cheap cheap!

i believe that a new mrt station in whampoa will transform the whole area.

Looks like unlikely whampoa area will have mrt, even you see the cross island line also seems to dont have. I find this area quite funny, the surrounding quite a few MRT lines and yet all bypass this area?! Lol.

But if there is really mrt in that area, balestier and whampoa area will become another prime location and the condo and hdb there will become very ex and popular.

Boon keng area due to mrt, the housing there is quite ex. And now they are building quite a few new BTOs in that area.

i agree that the hdb in boon keng is quite ex. but the condo is quite affordable.
Eight riversuites in boon keng is still quite low leh.
