Hence any rough estimate on How much will the 3-room resale flat within walking distance of 6-7 minutes type from Canberra MRT likely to cost in 2022?!
Should be at least $350k.

Just like Seng Kang , Punggol , Boon Keng , etc

I noticed these new town , very fast infested with Foreigner Indian . The rate still going.

I feel these foreigner Indian also " smart " choose those new town simply because cheaper than getting one at city area or near city areas.

Unfortunately, don't feel dismiss. Quite a lot Singaporeans also choose those places, simply because cheaper , next some are formerly own a flat at city areas or near city areas and sold off for profits move to there.
Means it will be easier to rent out too.

I went to my friend's housewarming just beside sembawang CC.

Terrible place, super ulu, no amenities, dusty and body due to construction, only one bus service there..

He used to stay at amk near amk hub. It was a drastic change to lack amenities and convenience..

Hahaha Slumberra thread came back from the dead!

Welcome back.
Think 2rm 47sqm should costs at least $250k after mop.
Huat ahhh!

But still no school la. Only one plot is confirmed for school, but don’t know is pri or sec school. Gahmen haven’t reveal the plan for the empty plots.
Master Plan 2014 has reserved 3 plots of land in Canberra Estate for Education Institutions.

Any guess on How much will the 3-room resale flat within walking distance of 6-7 minutes type from Canberra MRT likely to cost in 2022?! The reason why I said 2022 is becos 2022 should be the earliest year that 3-room BTO flats near Canberra MRT are available for resale in the resale market.

(My elderly relative will be staying alone in her 5-room Woodlands flat from next year onwards after her daughter married and buy her own house next year, she intends to sell her 5-room flat and she is considering whether to buy a resale 3-room flat near Woodlands MRT or a 3-room resale flat near Canberra MRT??)
If your relative's flat is very near to the future Woodlands North MRT Station better keep it. Rent out rooms for passive income better.

Cannot find data for Sembawang 3-Room resale price. Maybe can use Woodlands or Yishun 3-Room resale price as a gauge.

590A Montreal Link (Between Sembawang MRT and Canberra MRT)
2-Room asking for S$268,000

314 Sembawang Drive (Far from Sembawang MRT)
4-Room asking for S$305,000

Canberra 3-Room resale valuation price I estimate conservatively S$300,000-320,000. Estates nearer to Canberra MRT Station confirm command a premium price. Easily S$350,000.

Suffering now. Moi live at East crown.no food to eat....

2 yrs later will have MRT
Currently I think only have 1 or 2 coffeshops in that area. Not sure the huge foodcourt at Eastbrook open for business already or not.

If rely on public transportation only have bus service so indeed quite inconvenient for now.

Canberra MRT Station will be a game changer. Canberra's BTO price before and after LTA's announcement have significant difference.

As I have mentioned previously this is the early mover advantage.

Resale price easily double after MOP but only for those estates within 500m to MRT Station. Eastlink I w/ Canberra Plaza (Neighbourhood Centre) will huat the most!

In Singapore it is not easy to buy a BTO flat at MRT Station doorstep. Once sell very hard to get such a bargain in one's lifetime. 10 stops to Orchard MRT Station (direct).
