Pricing Summary: With an average price of $1378 PSF at Treasure, this is one of the most affordable price point for a Brand new Private property in the whole of Singapore. Comparing to Parc Botannia located in Sengkang West for example, Treasure At Tampines with it’s higher Land cost but lower selling price presents a better value here.
Comparison vs Executive Condo
With new Executive Condominium prices eg. OLA in Anchorvale, Sengkang already breaching the $1200 PSF mark, Treasure At Tampines selling at just a little bit higher $13XX PSF had shown that developer is willing to take a lower profit margin at the moment.
It can be summarized as Buying close to EC prices without EC restrictions. The only other brand new project that’s on sale in District 18 Tampines, The Tapestry which has much lesser choice units available (over 70% sold at avg of $1350PSF) as it was launched way earlier than Treasure.
“Downside risk limited and low, potential upside in a regional planning area high, limited stocks in district 18, low entry price. “
First and foremost, we recognize the convenience of staying in a mature estate. The amenities are mostly near, there will be better infrastructure like good schools, sports hubs, community clubs and so on. But what caught our eye was not the existing amenities. It’s about the potential of Tampines which is specified as a Growth hub by the government.
Treasure at Tampines is near not just one, but four MRT stations – Tampines, Tampines West, Tampines East and Simei – which are each situated within a 10- to 15-minute walk away. It is also near major business parks and industrial estates such as Changi Business Park, Pasir Ris Wafer Fab Park and Loyang/Changi Industrial Estate.
The MRT effect is REAL, during downtimes, all property would definitely get affected, prices and valuations have downward pressure. However, properties nearer to MRT stations tend to drop lesser in value and some even hold their value. During Good times, these projects nearer tend to appreciate more in the same time frame comparing to the further projects.
Connectivity-wise we believe it dosen’t need much explanation. Walking distance to Tampines Regional Centre, where there are malls and MRT stations and bus interchange, island-wide connection via 5 MRT stations that run along EAST-WEST and Downtown lines. You can enjoy a direct drive to Changi Airport without stopping for any traffic light!
Location Rating : ⭐⭐⭐
“Mature Estate, Regional Centre in the East, 3rd most populated Town in Singapore, excellent connectivity”
