– Last Gold Mine in Singapore, cheapest PSF are found here with 2 URA Masterplans in this area. 10 mins drive to Marina Bay Sands & CBD. 4 stations by MRT to City Hall.- Once masterplan is completed for Kallang Riverwalk and Paya lebar Biz Hub, this area will potentially boom over $1000psf.- Latest launch at Lorong 25 and 25A are sold out at $1200psf for mickey mouse freehold units. This is only $786psf. What is the risk?

– Very very easy to rent out. Units here rent out through grapevine without the need for advertising!- Awarded Top 10 interior Condo Versage Award by interior design magazine in 2007.- Good size of 1292sqft, with balcony in Living room and Master bedroom, the Expats here loves the balconies, easier to rent to expats.

– Still the cheapest buy in town, $786psf only. The number 3 cheapest location in Singapore compared to Woodlands and Choa Chu Kang. Safe price to enter at for a 1292unit, rather than spending the same amount to invest in high psf priced 1 bedders or Studios. Even if market goes the other way round, how cheap do you think it will go?
Comparisons made-
——– Investors are starting to look at this area due to the low psf and huge potential. based on Masterplan 2008.
——– Why spend $1400psf to $1600psf to invest in a tiny Studio unit with only 5xxsqft also at in other areas where Risk is much higher, For The Alcove, even if price drops if it were to happen, the safety nett price is much contained.
——–HDB across the street at Geylang East and Old Airport road are going at $600K to $750K for a 5 room flat already
——–Dakota Residences and Waterbank going at $1300psf to $1500psf, also 99 years lease hold.

Developments and Masterplans in Geylang Vicinity

With the developments coming up in Paya Lebar Business and Commercial Hub, as well as Kallang Riverside developements as unveiled in URA Masterplan. Geylang Area Properties are sitting on a good run for future upside potential, in my own opinion. Based on per square foot pricing for the properties there currently, with a huge bulk of the properties still transacting in the $700psf to $900psf price range for the existing completed properties in the resale market, i believe the upside potential is there.
