Hi Sean, I am new to buying/investing SG properties. Agents always tell us districts 9, 10, 11 freehold properties would do well in up or down market. Yet I see your examples above, Leedon Residence and The Trizon, both in CCR and freehold, sold for losses. As you mentioned, picking the right property makes the most difference. Was there anything wrong with those two properties that their prices took a dive despite being freehold and in CCR? Thank you.

This is a flawed analysis. Just because there are no loss making transactions doesn’t mean those owners who are holding on to their units aren’t making a loss if they sell now. They just won’t sell, so it doesn’t show up as a loss making transaction. They’re just stuck.

Thanks Sean for the great article. Do you have any opinions on condos in the East coast parkway stretch like Amber, Meyer, Siglap areas? Many new launches like Seaside residences, Meyer Mansion, Amber park have broken price records, do you think this area is at high risk of price correction? Would love to see you or other stackedhome writers analyze the condos along ECP.

hi sean, im looking to purchase a 1 bedder at eight riversuites or nearby location/down the road. Prices for Kovan area is currently higher even tho it is slightly further. I am considering for either own stay or rental. What do u think of riversuits? does the view and facing matters as i am looking for more capital upside for sure.

Hey Beny! Thank you for your question. We think the development is not good for own stay as the layout is not ideal – so we would consider other developments. But of course, this is subjective. From what we can see, the bedrooms, living room, kitchen and overall space is just small compared to other units.
