Just curious, anyone knows which condos that are Freehold and also situated near a mrt?
Let say less than 1 km.

I think these condos will not depreciate even in bad economic time?

There are quite a couple of FH condos within 1km of Newton or Novena MRT, branded schools, amenities.
Also those at the Carnhill area within 1km of Orchard MRT.
All boils down to how deep your pocket is and how you feel about what you see.

actually 1km may still be too far.
takes more than 10min to walk

500m would be better

I am looking at those around Hillview circles.

Like Glendale Pk Hillview Hts, Hillview Green, Hillview Park etc. All freehold or at least 999 and within 600m radius of new MRT station. I have researched...all quite reasonably priced, esp Hillview park.

MRT is due to come on stream by late 2015/early 2015.

A new commercial and residential project is taking place soon (but 99 years only).

PS: I am not a property agent so dun bother to ask me to look for units. I am staying in the east btw.

Boss,
500m, quite limited.
I know Newton 1 by the Lippo Group. And there are a couple of developments behind IRAS,and along Scotts road.

BTW, I stay at Newton, within 1km of Novena or Newton MRT and surrounded by FH condos..maybe you might drive to Lincoln Rd and have a look. Quite a number of FH condos to choose from (1room to penthouses to lofts...etc)

There is no such thing as a good time to buy.

If you can hold, then it is the good time to buy. I take it that you are buying subsale? Buying for investment? And what is your budget?

Also, don't worry too much about freehold vs leasehold. Leasehold is good enough for 3 generations...
