There will definitely be more expatriate demand, and that will be a plus point for landlords of 8 Hullet given the continued requirement by Singapore for foreign talent.

These projects are expected to be completing in Aug 2018, Dec 2021 and 2018/2019 respectively.
While they may present some competition to landlords who are looking to rent out their 8 Hullet unit, none of these developments are in a superior location.
Sophia Hills is on a hill and a distance from Dhoby Ghaut MRT.
Martin Modern, while located in the heart of River valley, is in between 2 MRT stations, Great World City and Fort Canning.
The Rise @ Oxley Residences is also a distance from the nearest MRT station Dhoby Ghaut.

Rents and yields
Rental yield is definitely on the lower side in Orchard Road given its prime location.

Waterscape at Cavenagh registered yields of 2.8%.
Other projects such as 111 Emerald Hill and The Laurels had yields of 2.6% and 2.5% respectively based on transactions in the last 6 months.

From humble beginnings in the spice trade to a regional real estate development and investment enterprise, Lian Huat Group is a success story that spans more than half a century.
Lian Huat & Co started as a nutmeg and mace trader in 1957 and later developed to an international trader of spice capitalizing on Singapore’s prominent geographical position and infrastructure with its sophisticated port facilities.
By the early-1960’s, its founder, the late Mr. Kho Beng Kang was acknowledged as the “Nutmeg King”.
In 1965, the Group ventured into real estate investments, successfully taking advantage of Singapore’s rapid urban development and with visionary foresight and policies, capitalised on real estate development programmes and investments.
In 1987 alone, it invested in around 650,000 square feet of prime residential, industrial and commercial properties in Singapore including some heritage-listed conservation shophouses.
The Group’s growth strategy later extended to the international property market with the acquisition of the Hotel and land site within Central Business District area and Sydney.

There are some restrictions for foreign buyers looking to buy Singapore property. Speak to us more to find out more about the restrictions.
Regardless, the restrictions are very minor compared to having an address in the heart of Orchard. Furthermore, there is a lot of capital gain upside and rental potential with 8 Hullet due to its prime location.
Compared to the surrounding countries and regions, Singapore property prices are actually in a state of depression now. This is due to numerous rounds of government cooling measures.
