TJ's interest in property was sparked after returning from the UK- where balconies are not counted in one's square footage!- and finding that the Singapore property had totally changed in the 7 years she was away. When not reading and watching articles & videos about property, she is busy cooking and baking for friends, family & her blog Greedygirlgourmet

How much commission was paid to the Property Agent? Sounds like the agent’s main incentive was to close the deal (and did not have the buyer’s best interests in mind). Can the Property Agent be reported for the various counts of misrepresentations?

Hi, please check point 6 as you talked about condos in Balestier but used a photo from a development in Potong Pasir which seems disingenuous. Thank you,

Point 2: You naming specific areas and case is causing harm to owners of property in that area/condo that your are insinuating. It is unethical of you to do this to boost your readership.

It is only unethical if it’s untrue. Get a grip.

When it suits you, you want honesty. When you have your own vested interest, it’s unethical. What a load of nonsense.

Apart from looking at the URA Master Plan to decide whether and to what extent any property (whether your own) or the neighbouring properties has a chance of redevelopment, you also need to check whether the area is subject to any additional specific redevelopment restrictions(ie examples are Shelford, Stevens/Balmoral, Balestier, Telok Kurau, Parts of Marine Parade etc). If there are, it makes it less likely that any redevelopment will take place.
