Is there a potential of en bloc sales for Eastpoint Green Condo

Ryan
Ryan

Hi Mrs. Wong, Thanks for your question! When we consider en bloc, we think of whether the developer can make money and how risky the project is. From our research, we found a condo with a similar plot size and GFA to Eastpoint Green – Simei Green (a condo nearby) and they had a collective bid with a reserve price of $820m. Using this, we can see that it translates to a high selling price of approximately $1,811 when the new project is launched (accounting for lease top up). This would be considered high for a condo in Simei, and… Read more »

Hi Druce, thanks for the great article. Some of those you listed have already gone enbloc so great foresight! Can I ask you does Leonie Gardens have potential for a successful enbloc (3rd time)? Why was it the first time there was no taker as well?

Ryan

Hi Tan, the reason why Leonie Gardens doesn’t seem to have a lot of en bloc potential is because there are no takers due to the additional duties developers incur. The reserve price translates to $2,104 psf based on existing gross floor area, or $2,021 psf ppr if a 10 percent balcony space is included, subject to approval – this is too high. Another issue is that Irwell Bank GLS is $1,7xx psf ppr only, and based on the reserve price the owners expected $2,0xx psf ppr. Pacific Mansions en bloc was only $1,8xx psf ppr and led to a… Read more »

Hi Ryan,
Thanks for the detailed analysis. My sentiments too, that the development charge, top up lease and differential premium would add up just too much like $300m? On top of the $800m price tag. Oh yes, and also Horizon Tower is a close competiton for enbloc as well..? So that makes it extra hard for enbloc? Hmm…at $3000-$3600 psf for 99 year lease, I think developers really put on their brakes…

What are your thoughts about seafront properties in Sentosa (not enbloc)?

Ryan
Ryan

Hi Tan! Seafront properties in Sentosa as a form of investment?

Tan

For own stay and capital appreciation. Or is harbourfront (caribbean,keppel, corals) a better /safer option? My concern about sentosa is because it’s not mainland, it can be rather hard to sell in future?

Hi Ryan

In your list, you have mentioned Chuan Park and Chiltern Park both with en bloc potential. If we look at the proximity to the MRT station, The Springbloom is much nearer and with a small number of units in the project. All 3 projects share the common plot ratio of 2:1. Any reason why you exclude The Spingbloom and given current property situation now, will you give The spingbloom another look?

Hi! Looking to buy a unit in the west for stay with enbloc potential was considering regent park and summerdale which would be better kindly advice

Hey Rajendran, to be honest it’s hard to say which one would be better for en bloc. Ultimately both has its potential, but it would also depend on the owners of the development. En bloc should be treated as a bonus

My apologies for making a blunder in my earlier comment about why no properties at Chuan’s vicinity are on en bloc listing. Actually, you did have them in on the other page, which I overlooked.

Is Bayshore apartment 3 room 1291 sq ft selling at 1.6 million worth buying .What is the chance of future enbloc

Stacked Homes
Stacked Homes

Thank you for writing in to us and thanks for sharing your intended purchase. You asked about Bayshore Park, at $1.6m for a 1291sqft which translate to $12xxpsf; it is steep as compared to the development average $psf of $10xxpsf for the past few years. Of course, it also depends on unit condition and facing but that will likely put you at a risk of price stagnation or depreciation as lease goes by. En-bloc will highly depend on stakeholders as the owners have to agree to a 80% common consensus before it can be put up for sale. With the… Read more »
