The Alps Residences at Tampines MRT Station

The Alps Residences are a development of executive condos on Singapore island. The construction of the complex began after the developers successfully bid for the plot of land with the Urban Redevelopment Authority. The lease of the land is for the standard length term of 99 years. The winning bid came in from the company MCC Land, which has already completed other similar projects on Singapore.

The Alps Residences MCC Land Singapore

Now MCC Land were eager to win the tender for the plot of land that the Alps Residences will stand on as they and other real estate firms were convinced that the units would sell really well once completed. In the last two or three years those firms that have completed housing projects mainly consisting of executive condos in high rise tower blocks have generally been able to sell enough units to make a decent level of profit. The better the location of completed condo developments the stronger sales have been. Sales of higher quality condos even seem to have sold strongly when other types of property have proved harder to sell in challenging market conditions.

Alps Residences Tampines Ave 10

As far as MCC Land were concerned bidding for the land plot at Tampines Avenue 10 was far too good an opportunity to be missed. The location of the Alps Residences are regarded as been in a great position in terms of the company been able to sell the great majority of the units as soon as these go on sale. To keep up to date with the progress of this development keep referring to it’s website. Once show condos are ready people will be able to book viewings to see the high standard of this complex.

Queens Peak Valleypoint Shopping Centre

Queens Peak is a building development by MCC Land, which is a Singapore based firm. It is a firm that has been responsible for the construction of several residential and retail projects on the island since 2010. MCC Land won the bid to build housing on the land parcel at Queens Peak. In recent times the Singapore government has made land parcels available for housing or retail development projects near Management Development Institute of Singapore (MDIS) and Crescent Girl’s School. Without these projects construction and real estate would have been severely hit by the global recession. Yet these projects have kept the building industry ticking over.

Queens Peak Condo MCC Land

Experience has shown firms like MCC Land that involvement in Singapore construction projects can make them profits depending on the location of the development itself. When the land parcels are located in prime real estate areas then more property development and construction companies bid to win the 99 year lease and complete the project. The facilities in the local area and the ability of future residents to commute to the city centre mean the prices that could be achieved would provide a good return on the investment for condos near to Queensway Shopping Centre and Ikea Alexandra.

Singapore MCC Land Queens Peak

MCC Land placed the highest bid for the housing development at Queen Peak as they believed it is in a good location in terms of commuting / transport links, local infrastructure, and closeness to the city centre. On the back of strong sales of housing units in similar locations across Singapore MCC Land was confident that the executive housing at Queens Peak would sell strongly.

Ikea Alexandra Queens Peak HY Realty

Whilst MCC Land have yet to announce the exact pricing of the housing units at Queens Peak they anticipate that the final asking price will still mean that the units will sell strongly, ensuring a decent return on their investment. These units are of a really high quality and that will make them attractive to buyers.

Propnex new initiative for Sales

A new initiative has been launched by Prop Nex and JLL in order to provide better assistance to developers that are selling high end homes in Singapore.

This initiative occurs one year following the fact that JLL Singapore was able to acquire 20 percent of the stake in the project marketing arm of Prop Nex International during the month of August in the year of 2014. And it is stated that 50 to 60 of the JLL’s representatives went on to work as employees of Prop Nex.

Since that time, both of these companies have augmented the spectrum of their working partnership in correlation to auction and project marketing regarding commercial developments.

New Sales for Propnex

According to Chris Fossick who is the managing director for Singapore and South-east Asia for the JLL company, developers of luxury properties within Singapore require increased assistance than previously in order to move their commodities due to the fact that property cooling measures have inflicted a decrease in demand from foreigners and investors.

It has been noted by Ismail Gafoor who is the CEO of Prop Nex, that there will soon be an urgent need for some of these developers to clear their stock in order to comply with the requirement of the regulations of the Qualifying Certificate (QC) along with the remission for additional buyer’s stamp duty (ABSD).

The QC regulations state that most developers here are required to pay extension fees regarding condo units that have not sold in correlation to the two years from the point of project completion. Since the month of December of the year of 2011, there has also been the requirement for developers to develop all residential sites that are in their possession and to complete the sales of all units within the time frame of five years in order to set forth the qualification of the remission of the ABSD on the cost of land.

Propnex to post record Sales Commisions

According to Mr. Ismail, since they need a greater outreach in order to be able to dispose of their properties, many developers will be facing their biggest challenge by the end of the year for next year. A trained work force is necessary for the marketing of their projects if these developers intend to cut prices and relaunch their projects.

A rigorous process was undertaken by both JLL and Prop Nex in order to find sales people who met their strict criteria of being able to have a good track record, communication skills, ethics, product knowledge and market knowledge. At least S$2 million worth of property sales in the last two years must have been closed orthere must have been the attainment of at least one transaction for a high net worth individual (HNWI) by the agents.

The short listed applicants then were put through mandatory training regarding project marketing and needed to pass an interview prior to being able to receive certification under the Luxury Real Estate brand. On Tuesday at a ceremony, they received their certificates.

The certificate acts as an endorsement by JLL and Prop Nex that these 200 next agents are ready now to set to the task of marketing high end properties of developers, as stated by Nancy Hawkes who was among them, who serves as the senior associate district director of Prop Nex, having transferred over from JLL in the later part of the year of 2014.

There is a lot of potential in the luxury market. Therefore, this certification is deemed to be timely. These are the perceptions of Nizam Gafoor who serves in the position of associate district director at Prop Nex where he oversees a team of 180 agents and has been dealing with HNWI clients.

JLL has put out the estimation that among 1.3 million homes in Singapore, the luxury home percentile is one percent of the total number. These properties are primarily situated near the location of Orchard Road, Marina Bay and Sentosa, with a wide range of pricing from S$5 million to S$50 million.

Looking at new initiave

In spite of the fact of the small market segment, Mr. Fossick stated that there does indeed exist a need to aid luxury developers. Luxury homes are under valued in the context of the other major markets and in relation to the wealth of Singapore. Take into consideration for example the fact that Hong Kong’s high end residential market, in light of enduring similar strong measures by the government, is trading at 165 percent in correlation to the equivalent of Singapore, while the fact remains that both London and New York are reported to be 100 percent higher than Singapore.

There were transactions for as many as seven major prime residential block deals that were worth S$900 million last year. Thus it shows that the market had found the bottom, or close to it, as suggested by Mr. Fossick.

While it is true that Prop Nex does offer a large spectrum of sales and leasing services for HDB flats and condominiums, Mr. Ismail noted that it had less experience with high end luxury sales.

At Le Novel Ardmore a Prop Nex agent had the success of being able to broker Singapore’s most costly penthouse that made for a S$51 million deal last year. Also, it is to be noted that agents of Prop Nex were able to sell penthouses at St. Regis Residences for S$12.2 million and Marina Bay Suites for S$18.98 million, while other agents were able to accomplish brokering Good Class Bungalows (GCBs) and luxury homes at Sentosa.

Northwave EC near to Causeway Point

Frederic Neumann, Co-chair of Asian Economies at HSBC in Hong Kong has announced the steps pioneered in Asia an initial success. The macroprudential steps there have included abstention of setting higher interest rates. The argument goes back to the assertions of Alan Greenspan for Hao Yuan Gambas EC, former Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, who has previously discussed stagnation and the role of the central banks in tackling the aftermath of recession rather than their ability to prevent the recession itself in Hao Yuan Woodlands Ave 12 EC. However after the Northwave EC Gambas housing prices decline and the marked slowdown of the global credit markets which halted to a freeze in 2008 for North Wave EC, the Laissez-faire stance started to appear increasingly unsustainable. The challenge of cheap cash pouring into the property assets in Asia while the Federal Reserve lowered its rates to nearing zero prompted a demand for action.

Northwave EC near to Causeway Point

Singapore was in the front line of economies adopting measures to address the challenge, putting into action residential property limitations in 2009. Broadly speaking, these comprised capped repayment costs at 60 per cent of the debtor’s monthly income, introduction of increased stamp duty on home sales and hiked up taxes on real estates.Hong Kong quickly followed suit in 2010 by levying of qualified stamp duty on properties re-sold within two years of purchase. This Northwave was subsequently changed to three years. Additionally, a 15 per cent tax was introduced on property acquisitions by foreigners and corporations in 2012. The measure came as a response to the overpowering pressure for property sales by Northpoint Yishun Causeway Point buyers from China. Another step in the same direction initiated in February 2013 delivered a twofold Woodlands EC in the progressive ad valorem rates to a maximum of 8.5 per cent.

Woodlands Ave 12 Hao Yuan EC

As a result the Canberra Plaza prices in Hong Kong and Singapore have shown a consistent drop in Woodlands Ave 12 Hao Yuan EC, with decrease in Singapore sustained over nine consecutive quarterlies in December 2015 and residential property prices drop in Hong Kong by 6.9 per cent in the fourth quarter. Adair Turner, who chaired the UK Financial Services Authority until its abolition in 2013, noted that city-states such as Singapore have now the status of international property marketplaces and regulation through Woodlands Ave 12 EC interest rates only will not serve their economies well. Mr Turner is convinced that macroprudential tools should be applied in conjunction with multiple regulatory measures to tackle the recalcitrant property boom which could never be amenable to control exercised via interest rates alone for North Wave Hao yuan in Chong Pang Market.
