Important Things to do When Planning to Sell Your Home

The following  steps will prepare your home for a quicker sale and maybe help with the price.

1. Fix and Repair

If you have been dragging your feet to make all those repairs, now is the time to fix all of those nagging things that you just lived with. Inside the house, look for things like stained ceilings, missing tile, broken windows and doors, heavily scratched floors and other signs of neglect. If you have a deck, check for cracks in floor boards and loose railings. Make a list of everything you see and then decide which things you’re going to tackle. Acompetent  real estate agent can be very helpful in determining what needs to be done and what doesn’t.

2. Increase Home Appeal

It’s important that your home makes a good first impression. To make sure buyers want to see the inside of your home, make sure the outside is well-kept, tidy and inviting. It’s important to touch-up or completely repaint trim, keep the grass cut, edge along sidewalks and paths, maintain flowers and shrubs and keep the yard tidy. You never know when curious buyers will pass by.

3. Declutter

Resist the urge to roll your eyes at this one. It is imperative that your home looks livable. Potential buyers may not be able to see past your clutter. Think of it this way—don’t move things you no longer want or need. Make decisions now and your house will sell faster and your move will be easier.It’s no secret that getting started is the hardest part of decluttering. Take one room, or even part of one room, at a time and dive in. Recycle or shred paper. Donate books, toys, clothing and duplicate household items. If you’re getting frustrated and you can’t deal with one more stack of papers or shoebox of old photos, put them in a plastic tub, label the box and stack it somewhere out of the way. A stack of boxes doesn’t look like clutter.

4. Neutrals attracts

If you decide to do some interior painting, stick to neutral colors. Neutrals don’t distract and they allow potential buyers to imagine their things in your home.

5. Clean up the place.

This may be the most important step you take toward getting your home ready to sell. For a home to live up to the “move-in condition” description, it has to be clean.If you already keep a clean house, simply keep up the good work, checking to make sure you don’t overlook little-used closets and other nooks and crannies that aren’t part of your weekly routine. This needs to be a deep cleaning.

6. Rearrange Your Furniture

Your furniture is arranged the way it best suits you and your family. When you’re staging your home to sell, you’ll need to use your furniture as marketing tools to help create inviting vignettes.Avoid having furniture lined up along the walls. Pull the sofa away from the wall and pull chairs close to create a conversation area. Also, you may need to remove some furniture so it’s easy for people to walk around in the rooms.

7. Fresh Flowers and Plants

If the weather allows, plant flowers in pots, window boxes or right in the ground to add color and pump up the curb appeal. Pay close attention to the plants, keeping them watered and trimmed.Inside the house, fresh flowers in vases add color, life and the feeling that you, as the home seller, are putting your best foot forward. It may not matter to some buyers but others will appreciate this detail and take it as a sign that your home has been well cared for.

8. Upgrade Lighting

If your lamps and other light fixtures are outdated, consider replacing them with modern ones. Buyers don’t want to feel like they’re taking a step back in time with outdated fixtures. This is an easy fix that will help sell your home.

These are simple stuff that won’t cost you a bomb but will definitely increase the appeal of your home.

Guillemard sites poised for redevelopment

Local mid-sized developer Roxy-Pacific Holdings’ associate company RH Guillemard was acquiring two freehold residential sites at 2 and 6 Guillemard Lane for a total price of $33.5 million. The developer plans to combine the two sites with two other freehold sites at 12 and 14 Guillemard Lane for residential development. Roxy-Pacific had announced the acquisition of 12 and 14 Guillemard Lane on Sept 15. The four sites have an estimated total land area of 25,601 sq ft.

Under the 2014 Master Plan, the sites are zoned “residential” and have a gross plot ratio of 2.8. Gullemard Road plies between the Sports Hub and the Paya Lebar MRT station, and has since seen many indie pubs, cafes and restaurants popping up in the area. It is becoming a hip place for nearby local residents. These residents previously may find hard to locate a nice ambience for dining, among the nearby eateries in Geylang area which are either too crowded or some among less desired neighbourhoods.

Guillemard Lane is located in the middle of Guillemard Road, which is near to the popular Old Airport Hawker Centre and is poised to see greater redevelopment spilled over from the Paya Lebar area as well as the Old Airport/Kallang region.

 

Twin Katong collective sales hit jackpots

The enbloc fever in Singapore does not seems to subside but only get hotter. Not only that record prices have reached for collective sales in their respective regions, but ever more estates are hopping onto the wagon.

The popular East Coast/Katong area also hit headlines recently. Notwithstanding the recent transaction in July for The Albracca, a 10-storey residential development (23,400 sq ft) site along Meyer Road, which has been successfully sold in its first attempt at a collective sale to Sustained Land for S$69.1 million, two prime sites in the vicinity has also hit their respective jackpots.

1. Nanak Mansions
The freehold Nanak Mansions development in upmarket Meyer Road has been bought by an associate of UOL Group in a $201.1 million en bloc deal. Secure Venture Development (No. 1), UOL’s associate company, will redevelop the 10,185 sq m site, which has a gross plot ratio of 1.4.

Meyer Road is dubbed as  ‘Nassim Residences of the East’ — a highly coveted location in the popular seaside area in Singapore. It is a low-rise development completed in the 1980s, located less than 0.5km from the upcoming Tanjong Katong MRT station on the Thomson-East Coast Line. Currently it comprises 36 maisonettes, each with either four or five bedrooms, all belonging to members and companies of a low-profile Singaporean Indian family. All 36 units have been rented out.

The site may be redeveloped into a five-storey project with a maximum gross floor area of 153,482 sq ft. This means it can accommodate a maximum of 203 units with an average size of around 700 sq ft in terms of gross floor area. The $201.1 million price tag works out to $1,429 per sq ft per plot ratio (psf ppr), after factoring in development charges payable upon redevelopment. This is comparable to the $1,409 psf ppr obtained for The Albracca at $69.1 million.

2. Amber Park

A 200-unit freehold condominium in Katong, Amber Park has been taken for S$906.7 million by its original developer CDL. This is the fourth time that Amber Park has been put up for sale. There are as many as eight bids for this prime site.

Built in 1986, the new winning party includes City Developments Ltd (CDL), through its wholly owned subsidiary Cityzens Development, and joint-venture partner Hong Realty.

The sale price reflects a land rate of about S$1,515 per sq ft per plot ratio, based on the allowable gross plot ratio of 2.8, in Singapore’s largest freehold collective sale by dollar value. At this sale price, the owners would expect to receive between S$4.3 million and S$8.3 million.

The winning consortium intends to redevelop Amber Park into a luxury condominium development comprising four 25-storey blocks with close to 800 units and a basement carpark. The current site has an area of 213,675 sq ft, and an allowable gross floor area of about 598,290 sq ft. The Tanjong Katong MRT station, located 200m from the site, will be completed in 2023.

The aggressive bid exhibits optimism among developers for Singapore property market. Though this may bring good news for property sellers, many industry experts caution against overtly optimism which may not be sustainable in the short term as loan interest rates looks poised to increase and rental market remains in the doldrums for the recent years.
