price versus location

When you’re out looking for properties to purchase, be it for long / mid-term investment or for your own living with your loved ones, the very first thing to come to mind is the price and followed by the location of the development. Yes, No, Maybe? It doesn’t matter because this two comes hand in hand for almost everything you could’ve imagined. Nothing is free if you want something good and nothing is cheap if you wanted the best. So how do we balance these weighing factors? This is where the location factor sets in to differentiate the price value of your choice.

Especially in our land scarce urban city…

Margaretville

This new release condo by the name of Margaret ville is one such development that you can seriously consider given the strategic site it is sitting on currently. They are conveniently situated in the middle of two MRT train stations, Commonwealth and Queenstown. Both within a short stroll away distance, they are able to ferry you to our current central business district and the future second business district in 4 to 5 stations away respectively.

How’s that for a location? If you are too near, the price premium shoots up like a sore thumb, if you’re not that near, it balances up but for this new project, it is slightly different from the rest especially those in the east as our second CBD is in the west. So, it actually became a very interesting locale to be in when you are right smack in the middle from both of them now.

Besides the district 3 label we have here instead of the prime 09, 10 and 11, there are more than enough amenities and facilities around the vicinity. Firstly, we are only 10 mins drive to Orchard, 5 mins drive to both Holland Village and Alexandra Village Cluster. Secondly, a short walking distance to Dawson Hawker Food Centre and 24 hours Supermarkets for your daily necessities. What else do you need?

A market leader known for building top quality properties and at a reasonable price point for home buyers. Apart from their recent fully-sold developments such as Lakeville, Lake Grande and Hallmark, the most talk about will be the J Gateway project back in 2013 when all 738 apartments were sold in the first day of release.

If you are looking to purchase a unit for your loved ones from this reputable developer and at a very nice location minus the premium, you have to act fast and register your interest with them as soon as possible to avoid any disappointment.
