    Growing property investment potential

    For those thinking of investing in Sengkang/Anchorvale, here are some basic facts of district 28 where Sengkang/Anchorvale is located.

    D28 prices

    D28 prices and rents

    • Non-landed freehold prices around S$842 psf; Non-landed 99 year prices around S$748 psf.
    • Rents are about S$3 psf
    • Gross yield (before taking out property taxes, insurance, condo maintenance charges etc) is around 4.2 to 4.7%

    This yield level is really good, implying that prices in the Sengkang/Anchorvale area is not as high compared to other parts of the island.

    A new launch EC, Rivercove residences, priced at S$8xx psf, is therefore likely to be quite a steal.

    Government’s development plans for North East Singapore

    The government has plans for North East Singapore, to develop

    • New and better housing choices
    • Rejuvenate mature towns
    • Enhance quality of life

    This 3 pronged vision is likely to see North East Singapore (including Punggol, Sengkang and Anchorvale) develop into a special area. This is going to be much like Tampines, Paya Lebar and Jurong Lake district.

    Generally, gentrification,

    a process of renovation of deteriorated urban neighbourhoods

    can lead to a decrease in vacancy rates and increase in property values.

    Examples of gentrifying neighbourhoods in other parts of Singapore is Geylang Serai and Jalan Besar which is now becoming home to hipster young people and the creative community.

    New life has been injected into these neighbourhoods, and if the government’s plans follow through, the North East part of Singapore, and Rivercove Residences EC, will likely see improving property values.
