48yo hdb sold for 1.1mil

https://www.asiaone.com/money/tiong-...box=1597623752

An adjoined resale flat in Tiong Bahru with just over 51 years of lease left fetched more than a million dollars this month.

The unit at Block 43 Moh Guan Terrace in Tiong Bahru was sold for $1,088,000, Housing Board (HDB) data shows.

PropNex real estate agent Wong Han Yee, who closed the deal, said the flat is a rare gem because of its size and location.

The unit, which started its lease in 1973, is 131 sq m and listed as a four-room flat.

It was created by joining two two-room flats.

Ms Wong told The New Paper yesterday: "It is in a central location, being a short walk from Tiong Bahru MRT station, and will also be a short distance from the upcoming Havelock station, which will be two stops from Orchard station."

She added that when the property was put up for sale in the third-quarter of last year, there were many interested parties, most of them with relatively young families.

The flat is about the size of a jumbo flat, which is not normally found in central areas and is usually found in the heartland such as Woodlands and Yishun.

The structure of the flat also allows for most of the walls to be knocked down, giving the owner the freedom to reconfigure his space.

Ms Wong said the area is also steeped in heritage, given that Moh Guan Terrace is located along the Tiong Bahru Heritage Trail and next to a conservation area.

"Buyers who look for flats in this area are drawn to its old-world charm. Moh Guan Terrace has walk-up apartments that are not your usual cookie-cutter type of flat and have a distinctive look."

In recent years, Tiong Bahru has taken on a hipster ambience with trendy cafes popping up, such as Forty Hands and Tiong Bahru Bakery.

Ms Wong said the market price for a standard 10-year-old four-room HDB flat in Tiong Bahru is $700,000 to $800,000.

Ms Christine Sun, head of research and consultancy at OrangeTee & Tie, said the unit could fetch such a high price because of its rare size in a prime location.

She said: "Some may not mind paying the amount to enjoy the location and space, which otherwise will be very expensive if it is a private condominium."

While historical value may play a role, she said the flat's tenure, size and location are more important factors affecting the buyer's decision.

Ms Wong said while the unit has a short lease of slightly over 51 years that could make it difficult to resell, there is high demand for flats in the Tiong Bahru area.

"I think there will be continued demand for properties in this area, as the charm of the area is unique. The area is also highly liveable and has seen high rental demand," she added.

Long-time Tiong Bahru residents who spoke to TNP said their families are unlikely to sell their homes despite knowing that they could possibly fetch a high price given the popularity of the area.

Miss Lynette Chua, 25, who lives in Boon Tiong Road, said while she was surprised at the value of the Moh Guan Terrace unit despite its short lease left, the convenience of the area is highly desirable.

She said: "It takes around half an hour to get to most places and it is near town.

"It is also near the famous Tiong Bahru market and hawker centre, which has a wide variety of food.

"It will probably set us back about $800,000 or even more to find another home in such a good location."

Another resident, Miss Lim Zhimin, 25, who lives in Jalan Klinik, agreed that the location and surrounding amenities are a great draw.

She added that the resale price of the Moh Guan Terrace flat did not surprise her.

"It is right where the Tiong Bahru heritage area is and, culturally speaking, it is a lot richer compared with the rest of the precinct."

In April last year, an 112 sq m five-room flat at Block 9A Boon Tiong Road was resold for a record $1.2 million.

The price pipped the previous record of $1.185 million set by a 237 sq m HDB terrace house in Jalan Bahagia sold in September 2018 and a five-room flat at City View @ Boon Keng in January last year.

The record has since been broken by at least two transactions - a five-room flat at Pinnacle@Duxton that was sold for $1.232 million in March this year and a five-roomer at City View @ Boon Keng that went for $1.205 million in July last year.

Yeah but itís two two room flats, which is a four room flat size. $1.08mil for a four room flat with 51years lease left? I wonder what the person is thinking, I would have topped up and bought Pinnacle Duxton instead (at least itís 80years lease left and even better location ~$1.2m) if I was so keen on residing near that area.

Yes, likely SERs but must wait until sentiment pick up. Those who stay in Tiong Baru will never sell their flat unless they need to. Rental too good. Location is superb too. Always pick location above everything else.

Enbloc market is dead for a decade.
