Four-room HDB at Tiong Bahru View Sold for $1.158 mil with Buyer Paying $158,000 COV

A purchaser has actually paid $1.158 million ($ 1,237 psf) for a 936 sq ft, fourroom HDB flat at 10b Boon Tiong Road. HDB cautions reveal that the sale was lodged in June.
According to Malvin Lim, the residential or commercial property agent that represented the seller, the unit was valued at $1 million by HDB. Therefore, the customer paid a cash-over-valuation (COV) of $158,000. The COV is a cash money amount that represents the distinction in between the sale price of the level and also its HDB valuation.
Lim is an assistant partner marketing supervisor at PropNex Realty, as well as a member of the Marcus Luah Division.

The level remains in a HDB development called Tiong Bahru View which makes up obstructs 9a, 10b, 10a as well as 9b Boon Tiong Road. The 700-unit growth features a mix of three- to five-room apartments and workshops.

The flats are beside Tiong Bahru Plaza shopping mall, which is connected to the underground Tiong Bahru MRT Station on the East-West Line. The mature Tiong Bahru neighbourhood features lots of F&B options and retail outlets. A summary of the neighboring features can be located on EdgeProp Singapore’s on-line review of Tiong Bahru View.

Tiong Bahru View is a substitute housing development under the Selective Enbloc Redevelopment Scheme for the now-demolished HDB obstructs that used to stand at 110, 111, 113, and 114 Bukit Merah View.

The million-dollar level is a north-facing device on the 29th floor. It was listed for $1.2 million when it was first put up for sale in September 2021. Provided its fairly high asking price, Lim says that queries were limited to a small group of customers that had the spending plan to consider the level.

Regardless of the fairly high COV the customer would certainly have to pay, Lim says that the team of interested purchasers often tend to be cash-rich, thus the additional cash they require to pay is less of an issue for them, he states.

There were some early offers from a couple of severe purchasers, states Lim. A customer had come close to with a $1.15 million offer to acquire the unit in December 2021. The seller wanted to wait out for an extra eye-catching offer as the HDB resale market was relocating rapidly at the time. The ultimate purchaser of the level was already leasing an unit in an adjoining HDB development.

According to Lim, the four-room device received solid interest from a couple of landed-house owners that were looking to right-size, as well as singles in their late 30s. The songs were hunting for a residential property that was close to the city as well as had actually turned to the HDB resale market because they felt evaluated of the exclusive property market, he says.

The device had also been tastefully refurbished by the owner to a song of concerning $200,000, as well as this helped to convince the buyer to at some point secure the sale, claims Lim. He adds that unlike the other three blocks in Tiong Bahru View, 10b includes only 3- as well as four-room flats, as well as a handful of studios. This aided drive up need for available four-room flats, he says.

Although this transaction marks the very first time that a resale unit at the block has crossed the $1 million threshold, various other resale units in Tiong Bahru View have transformed hands at higher costs in the past.

EdgeProp Singapore formerly reported on the sale of a 1,206 sq ft, five-room flat in Tiong Bahru View that fetched $1.14 million ($ 945 psf) in May 2020, as well as the sale of another 1,205 sq ft, five-room level for $1.2 million ($ 996 psf) in April 2019.

Based on HDB resale cautions compiled by EdgeProp Singapore, at the very least 30 flats in Tiong Bahru View have actually been transacted for a million bucks or higher, given that the very first few systems reached their minimum occupation duration (MOP) in 4Q2018.

The sale at 10b Boon Tiong Road marks the first time that a resale unit at that block has actually crossed the $1 million threshold.

The sale of the $1.158 million flat at 10b Boon Tiong Road now paves the way for various other units in that block to breach the $1 million threshold, says Lim. “This is just an issue of time, considered that the HDB appraisal of a few of the flats in that block has reached $1 million.”
