I think one can always go for a lower cost housing option – leasehold in older projects. It’s certainly more affordable. Surely it won’t be as nice as a new launch like The M, but can still be very nice.

Hi Edmund, yes you’re right. The M isn’t particularly suited to 1st-time home buyers, but this was a case study from someone we know who visited The M. Ideally, someone below 35 can buy a unit in the outskirts of the city for affordability. There’re also leasehold projects as you mentioned that would be more affordable.
