sorry, if this has posted elsewhere:

 

will this cause future kopi shop buy over to cost more?

will it mean, eating at the humble heartlands kopi shop become more expensive?

what is the real maths. maybe the buy over is not that expensive?

A new record has been set for the transacted price of a coffee shop in Singapore. The Yong Xing Coffee Shop in Block 155, Bukit Batok Street 11 was sold for a staggering $31 million, making it the most expensive coffee shop to be sold in an HDB estate.

 

The previous record was held by Coffee Express 2000, a nondescript coffee shop in Block 682, Hougang Avenue 4, that was sold for $23.88 million in 2013. Chinese evening daily Lianhe Wanbao reported that the Bukit Batok transaction was finalised last month. 4,521 SQ FT The 4,521 sq ft coffee shop, which is about the size of three executive HDB flats, was sold to a new company, EH 155.

 

Yong Xing's previous owner had reportedly bought the place for about $3.38 million nearly 20 years ago. According to the newspaper, the selling price is also significant as it indicates the sum of the block number and the new company's name, 155+155, with a few more zeros thrown in. And in Cantonese 3,100 - the same figure without four of those zeros -sounds like "business (comes) continuously".

 

One of the reasons the coffee shop could have been so attractive, property experts told Wanbao, is that there is no hawker centre in the area.

 

Some tenants said the rent has been doubled since the handover, to $6,500 a month. Some of the stallholders have increased the price of their food, while some have been staying open for an extra two hours each day.

For jobless retiree like me, i buy my own coffee powder kopitiam-type and make my own coffee using a cloth strainer. $14 per kg, can last me about 1.5 mths, 2 cups a day. Cheap cheap very good.

 

Wife and i cook  our own dinner for family 5 days a week, at least. Got fish, got meat, got chicken and got vegee. Yes, prices have gone up, but still relatively cheap.

 

If we live simple lifestyle, we should be able to manage. I look at some 3rd world neighbors. Earning power is low, but basic necessities in the city are relatively more expensive.

 

We are still blessed.

$5 noodles @ hawker center anyone?! Property huat ah! But ppl soon have to jia sai liao...

 

BECAUSE appreciation of property price does not materialize until you have sold. For the average Joe with only 1 property, that only translates to paper gain. Better repent for the next 1 year PPL!

Exactly, eat at cheaper place. The coffee shop at 682 hougang that transact at more than $26mil seems to have poorer business after the takeover. They renovated the place but could not attract enough customers because food quality went down and price went up.

Even the 五香虾饼previously at the coffeeshop also moved out to a shop of it own next to it.

Willing landlord, willing food staller owners. Willing seller, willing buyer. Nothing is impossible.

 

Well, I saw coffee shop with staller owners leaving one by one and left behind empty stalls behind, and the people visiting the coffee shop start to get lesser. Morale of the story, there is a limit to one can tolerate high rental and high food price.

yeah, there's a point when people start to bring your own food to work and start cooking at home.
