A Record of Condominium Costs

It’s been almost six years since Condominiums made a comeback in 2010. By 2010 to Q1 2013, the ordinary launch cost of an condominium valued modestly from S$800 psf into S$950 psf. This growth was still acceptable since it had been in sync with enhancing buyers’ opinion for residential properties around the whole throughout this period.

That is because a purchaser’s present HDB monthly mortgage payment won’t be factored into TDSR calculations if a lender assesses the total amount of loan to give him within an Condo unit. Executive condos were consequently found at an average cost of roughly S$800 psf at Q2 2013, up from an average of S$750 psf throughout the first half of the year.

Projects which adopt strong pricing plans in 2017 transfer sales quicker

Two condominium projects stood out from 2017 with regards to number of earnings — Hundred Palms Residences and Parc Botannia. As reported by a developer sales survey in August, Hundred Palms Residences was sold out on the first day!

Competitive pricing is the principle of this sport for developers to market their executive condominium jobs quicker in 2017. That is because buyers stay very cost sensitive, on account of the enduring impact of the MSR cap for new Condo buys and constraints on property loans caused by TDSR.

Official Singapore Idol Blog

This is my last task before i wrap up my very own Idol journey. I headed down to the Marina Bay floating platform earlier to cover my idols for their rehearsals for the countdown tonight. Fresh in their minds were their last spectacular finale held on the 27th December. It was our hot conversational topic. Our newly crowned idol, Sezairi looks relatively tired with all the media interviews and whatnots.

It’s Wednesday and by right it supposedly is Idol day, oh well. We are all suffering from Idol withdrawal symptoms.

It feels empty right now but meeting each other was good all over again, though i foresee some of them are ready to lead into different directions of life once all these are over. That doesn’t mean it’s the end of our friendship; that’s for sure. Now, how about a good show later as it is our last!

Rehearsals were pretty long, but we’re used to it haha thanks to Idol, anyway here are the pictures below, if you have not been following my tweets 😛

A little promo for the show, because our idol family and anyone related to idol is giving their last performance of the year! They are…

Our resident heart throb, Farhan Shah will get into his element with his band, Heregoesnoth!ng. I went down to his gigs before and guys you must not miss this at all, unfortunately it will not be show on television, whatelse.. COME ON DOWN!

Our favourite ex-promo intern at Mediacorp will also be appearing during the preshow together with his regionally famous duo, Sleeq. Catch Syarif and Alif at the countdown belting out their famous hits from their album that is massively acclaimed overseas! Show them some love :]

Well, you guys can’t miss all these entertaining acts, and if you have not figured out what to do for New Year, come down to the Marina Floating Platform aka THE FLOAT and party with us! Tickets are available at all sistic outlets and costs only $30. If you attended Singapore Idol Finals last Sunday and you still have your ticket stub, show it at the ticketing counter and you’ll get $10 off the original price!
