Record 43.3 applicants vie for each four-room BTO flat in Bukit Merah
The four-room BTO apartments in Bukit Merah obtained awesome demand from home shoppers even though as the flats are one of the most highly-priced in May’s purchases movement.
Situated inside the fully grown estate of Bt Merah, Telok Blangah Beacon received Forty Three prospects for each and every four-room flat, the highest request price for this type of apartments in the past years.
Lee ST, Director of Research Study at Huttons , took note in which “near 30 first time candidates as well as 4hundred second timer prospects are vying for the minimal supply of units”.
The 175-unit project is placed nearby Telok Blangah MRT terminal, with the 3 bed room units estimated from $Four hundred Nineteen thousand (counting out grants), while rates for the four bedroom units kicked off at $602,000 (omitting subsidies). This is the 1st Build-To-Order project amongst the region after 2013, when Telok Blangah Parcview got released.
Lee attributed the soaring demand to the project’s central region in an older community. Telok Blangah Beacon is in addition closest to the future Greater Southern Waterfront.
“Also paying $710K and even a delay of more than 5 yrs is zero deterrent to home buyers who yearn for the place as well as the unrealized upside of the transformation in years ahead,” he pointed out.
Last calendar month’s May’21 Build-To-Order purchases exercise saw Housing and Development Board open 3.879K BTO units across 4 housing projects in 4 zone: Bukit Merah, Geylang, Tengah, along with Woodlands.
It also introduced 2thousand 4hundred 94 units following its SBF routine. Lee recorded that May’s Sale of Balance Flats movement saw a marginally larger requisition level matched to the earlier movement in Nov 2020.
“This is likely as a result of the postponements in wrap-up of Build-To-Order units as well as the cash-over-valuation in which purchasers of resale flats have to fork out ever since the circuit breaker,” said Lee.
