PASIR RIS 8 IS A 99-YEARS LEASEHOLD PROPERTY
99-years leasehold development projects offer attractive advantages to both buyers seeking an own-stay purchase and individuals interested in investing.
99-Years Leasehold Properties are in High Demand
With boutique freehold projects making up the majority of new developments these days, especially in traditionally prime districts like District 9, 10, and 11, a 99-Years Leasehold new development’s lower quantum price of at least 15-20% of a Freehold property in the same area creates an attractive value and high demand for interested buyers.
Not only is the 99-Years Leaseholds a great option to avoid “freehold premium” and hefty luxury furnishings price tag from developers, but it’s affordable prices also allows buyers to have a reasonable outlay on their property purchase. This certainly makes a difference for upgrading buyers, with the inclusion of ABSD (Additional Buyer Stamp Duties) since 2018, where 12% of a property’s price has to be paid upfront first even if the buyer has plans to sell their current property.
99-Years Leasehold offers Great Value for Property Investment
Compared to its freehold neighbours, the 99-Years Leasehold projects also hold excellent potential for capital appreciation, since a higher volume of transactions is expected in Leaseholds than in Freeholds, which are generally regarded for legacy building and passing down through generations. Other factors, such as initiatives outlined in the URA Master Plan for that particular district, can also influence the property’s appreciation value.
Investment buyers wishing to rent out their property will also enjoy expected higher rental yields for the 99-Years Leaseholds in prime districts. This is because the leasehold’s combination of prime district addresses and excellent property amenities allows them to demand more competitive rental rates than the freehold properties while making less upfront capital commitment.
