I love this article. There are so much that you’ve unpacked for the readers. Thank you so much. I would love to see this same article and subject for locations near to the city… city fringes. Kudos to the writer and team that contributed.

So after writing one whole NUS economics thesis, whats the answer? No conclusion right? LOLs. The sad fact is 1.5m with 650k profit doesn’t mean anything as you can’t even move closer to town ie serangoon side, without coughing up 1.8m up for a larger unit, even for an old (>15 year old condo). OK lah, let me give a workable suggestion. Sell out, move to Sunglade. Choose a unit not facing the flyover, please.

One other bit of advice. Settle the family own stay unit first. The rest will fall in place, later, down the road. Meaning, don’t worry too much about whether the unit will appreciate or not. As long as it’s a safe bet, it’s fine. For the query, I advise Sunglade as the price decent, next to NEX, location quite central, can get a larger unit. They can thank me 5 years later.
