Based on past 6 months transactions.

Price for 1 bedder for Dnest & neighbouring Coco Palm is similar at $635k on average.

Coco Palm is located closer to Pasir Ris central and it’s newer!
However, the land lease for Coco started in 2008 but TOP in 2018.
Dnest lease started in 2010 but TOP in 2017.

Current Average PSF:
Coco Palm> $12xx
Dnest> $10xx

Layout wise for Dnest 1 bedder, it’s at 484sqft.

Unique movable kitchen counter cum dinning.
Unique ceiling storage space along the walk in wardrobe.

Almost all of Dnest get hit by west sun.
Half of the blocks are facing the highway and it is very noisy.
Proximity wise, coco palms is nearer.

Personally though i like the site design in Dnest, if you are thinking of getting a one bedder in dnest, might as well look at coco palms at the same time. Coco palms also have some commercial shops (7-11) and closer proximity to MRT.

If you up your budget by $100k++, you can get a 3 bedder @ belysa or watercolors..

Thanks for sharing guys. The layout for d'nest seems neat squarish.

Is there a simple way for me to calculate how much cash i have to pay per month for my mortgage after deducting cpf OA? This is assuming that I am unable to use OA fully to pay off monthly.

To me, coco palms, dnest and palette 1 bdrm all have around same asking price of $630-$650k. In this case, i would rather get coco palms. For me, Dnest is in a L-shape formation and thus your neighbours may be too close to you. Coco palm and palette are more spread out and have more/bigger facilities.

Only looking around that area? For d’nest, you have to choose the right stack, as the plot is L shape, furthest in will require additional 2-3 mins of walking time to the main gate. (Assuming you not driving)

Let's say the property is $700,000.

I currently have $120k in OA, monthly contribution to OA is about $2.3k.

For the downpayment, let's say i use 15% OA (i.e. $105k) and the remaining 10% paid in cash (i.e. $70k).

For the remaining 75% of purchase price (i.e. $525k), I take up a bank loan spanning 30 years. Based on the moneysmart mortgage calculator, I would have to pay about $1.9k per month.

How do I calculate how much of this $1.9k can be paid off using OA?

Not sure if I'm getting this right. Appreciate your inputs.

If you have sufficient monies inside ur CPF OA every month 1.9k can be used for the monthly instalment, there is no restriction on that.

Correct like what passerboy mention, since your OA contribution is $2.3k/m, u can use full $1.9k OA for the Mortgage.

That’s what I’m doing as well since My CPF OA is enough to pay off the loan.

Yup I own a shoebox. Not entitled to any rebates or anything. Coz shoebox is under private not public housing mah.

But we still get 4 free mask!

just curious, if any singaporean owns a shoebox unit, even if the shoebox unit is extremely tiny, is it all the yearly GST vouchers and all the yearly utilities rebates all he is NOT eligible anymore??!
