2018 New Condo Real Estate Investment Likely to Hit an All Time High in Singapore

With many predictions on the way for the rise in the Singapore condo housing market, there is certainty that there will be a huge growth in the private housing sector. With projections going back and forth about how high the market will grow in newly developed real-estate investments, the accuracy of expected growth may be a little modest for the Singapore area, given it being a desirable place to live in the region. Amid all speculations of how well the real-estate market will turn out coming into the conclusion of 2018, it’s likely that Singapore new condo development real-estate investments market will be at an all-time high in the multi-billion investment range.

How high these investments are likely to grow?

The real-estate investment projections for the Singapore new condo developments such as Amber 45 by UOL located at 45 Amber Road are expected to grow more than 20-25% which can bring up to more than $60 billion dollars in newly developed condo real-estate investments. 2018 rightly follows 2017 for investment growth, which 2017 has seen more growth in investments in condo properties up to 15%, since 2016. The elevation of real-estate investments for 2017 was due to the upturn of the real-estate condo market. After a decline, it is expected that in 2018, the number could be at an all-time high, even higher than it has been collectively in the three prior years combined.

These projected gains in real-estate investment market will carry on and even gain more momentum as 2018 nears its end. This successful investment projection gain will likely be driven by investors that will set the foundation for the upcycle in the new development condo realty market. Elevations in the market will be highly clear with a great total of investments in the private condo real-estate market. Collectively for all types of real-estate in the Singapore market it will show even higher numbers of investments across all types of investable properties in the Singapore area.

Expectations for 2018

In 2017 the new condo development private housing sector made up around 40% of actual investments in residential condo real-estate investments. Investment sales for 2017 was capped at nearly $40 billion which was at the best investment sales since 2006. Investor in condo realty are going to show that they are still interested in the market despite the growth in price. Investor are expected to take their chances in the market, with the positivity that the new development condo real-estate investment market will hit an all-time high in 2018 and stay that way for years to come.

The expectations of developers for this all-time investment high to take place, will be effective through the replenishment of their land sites and new developments. With fierce competition in the new development condo real-estate market, developer’s investments in their land is what is likely to set this 2018 investment cap into place, making it a better year than in 2017. However, efforts by both investor developers and buyers, will make this more likely to happen sooner than the end of the year with an even higher investment in newly developed condo real-estate across Singapore.


Reasons on Why You Should Choose Park Colonial Condo

Hello! When you’re looking to buy a matrimonial home with your life-long partner, you might not be able to find as many options that are suitable within your budget in Singapore due to the higher cost of living here. There are some compelling reasons that you should also look forward to buying a condo such as the Park Colonial Condo by CEL instead of a public housing dwelling in the neighbourhood town. Below are some great reasons why choosing a Singapore condo could be the right choice for you and your family.

Lower Property Taxes

Since property taxes are based on the overall value of the property, the condo taxes are worth more or less the same as public housing since HDBs can fetch above a million dollar nowadays. The taxes are really insignificant due to the size of the condo and other factors including the cost of the condo, amenities and the overall area in which you’ll purchase. Assessed home value and resale levy will play a crucial factor in how much you will be taxed for your property. However, Condo owner’s taxes will always be similar to the amount of owning a public housing.

Park Colonial’s Security

Owning a private condo here increases your security with the toughened fence-up border. In addition to the fact of having on-site security guard round the clock in Park Colonial Condo, it actually deters any criminals’ would-be away from the condo compounds as well.

When you’re looking at the condo building in the development, you will see several other neighbour units close-by each other and with a tight knit community within the entire site, each and every resident will be able to look out for one another. By residing in a private condo will surely provide you and your family a higher level of security than you would get by living in a public housing family home.

Maintenance of Park Colonial Condo

While you’re living in a private residential development, it takes away the headache of having to worry about the maintenance of your property. If there are any pools on the premises the MCST will make sure that the maintenance of the pool is taken care of, as well as other communal areas of the building. This is why you pay maintenance fees in the first place, so that you don’t have to worry about doing the work yourself as you would with a HDB home. By residing in a condo premise, you’ll never worry about watering the grass, picking unsightly weeds from the garden, mowing a lawn or cleaning a pool or any area outside of your residence too!

Amenities of Park Colonial Condo

Monthly maintenance fees from Park Colonial Condo residents includes paying for the water, trash removal and security among other things. These are areas you won’t have to worry about while living comfortably at home. Although these fees are usually higher than what you would have to pay as compared to living in a HDB, you are actually paying for the convenience and amenities within the development as well. It comes with a full suite of facilities for residents to enjoy while you’re back from work or during the weekend gatherings with your friends and relatives. Apart from having such convenience in your own backyard, there is also the prestige of living in Park Colonial Condo due to the premium status.
