While Singapore’s property market has slowed over the past 15 quarters due to government cooling measures, according to recent reports the private residential property index for 3Q2017 has increased by 0.5 per cent.

Having endured a slowing market for four years, we are now seeing sales volumes of properties rising, with some new launches meeting with strong demand from home buyers and investors. But should you invest in Singapore’s property now that sentiments are slowly starting to pick up?

Of course, this is the big question on many people’s mind, so here’s a look at why you should invest in property in Singapore, which, let’s not forget, is still one of the top destinations for investing in residential properties.

  1. Attractive Rental Income

If you are thinking of investing in a private property to generate rental income, it’s worth pointing out that properties in vibrant areas, for example close to or in the city centre, will generate more attractive yields, giving you a passive income on top of your salary.

According to an article in The Business Times, “Potential investors should still be more concerned with rentability and rent levels rather than place their hopes on uncertain capital gains. One fruitful approach is to consider buying residential property in integrated transit-linked developments – defined as developments with commercial components and direct access to MRT.”

Having a passive income is one way to generate wealth and interestingly, many money-management experts advocate this approach to people looking for financial freedom.

 

  1. Vibrant Mixed-use Developments Attracting Tenants

The increasing popularity of mixed-use developments where commercial and residential spaces are integrated in the same building, is transforming the way many people live, work and play, particularly in Singapore’s CBD.

These developments offer residents easy and convenient access to shops, restaurants, gyms and offices all within the same building as their homes, so they no longer need to take a long commute to commercial areas.

Investing in properties within a mixed-use development can yield better rental rates compared to those in purely residential developments, as they offer a dynamic and vibrant environment for renters.

As well as living within close-proximity to commercial areas, many mixed-use developments have green spaces with pedestrian and bicycle-friendly environments, which can host activities to strengthen the neighborhood’s character and social interaction within the community.

 

  1. Prime Locations Drive Strong Returns

When it comes to real estate, property location can make or break your investment. Investing in a property in a prime location can mean more renters, higher rental fees, and better returns. Properties located near or within the city centre are appealing to both city workers as well as many foreigners who prefer to rent a private house than book a hotel, if they visit frequently.

Mixed-use developments are emerging in these prime locations, with Singapore now seeing more residential and retail spaces in an area where soaring towers were previously dedicated to office space only. These new mixed-use properties are giving investors an advantage when it comes to setting their rental fees.

 

  1. Capital Appreciation Over Time

Unlike other investment products, real estate properties tend to appreciate over time – with capital appreciation higher in properties closer to the city centre.

As cities and economies grow, the demand for residential and commercial spaces increases resulting in property prices rising over time. And despite the recent dip in Singapore property prices, Global bank Morgan Stanley believes that property prices in Singapore will double by 2030.

This means that a prime property bought today could be sold for a much higher price in 2030 given Singapore’s rapid economic growth that continues to beat economic forecasts.

Investing in property can be expensive and time-consuming, but with the right mindset and strategy, it can bring big returns. So next time you think of investing in real estate, these reasons will help you remember why you should give it a shot.

Melbourne is a melting pot of cultures.  On top of the plethora of culture and entertainment, this extends to cuisine and dining options.  Whatever may be your taste, there’s something for everyone.  Here are some of the best the city has to offer:

MOVIDA Bar de Tapas

Mayfair Lobby

A double height grand lobby ushers you in, dressed in marble with copper inlays that echo its sweeping facade

Known prominently for her slick and curve designs, Dame Zaha Hadid has received accolades from her peers in the design and architectural industry, earning her the title “Queen of Curves”. And even after her passing, her design legacy will remain honored in Melbourne thanks to Mayfair’s Zaha Signature Suites.

A pioneer of parametricism and an icon of neo-futurism, Zaha Hadid’s highly acclaimed work include the Vitra Fire Station in Weil Am Rhein, Germany, the London Aquatic Centre for the 2012 Olympics, the Heydar Aliyev Centre in Baku, Azerbaijan and the Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art in Cincinnati, USA and the Guangzhou Opera House in Guangzhou, China.

See how the world-renowned designer added her magical touch in designing these spacious luxury suites in the ultra-luxurious residential development situated along the upmarket residential enclave at St Kilda Road, part of the Melbourne’s bustling inner suburbs.

Mayfair Rooftop Facilities

The Zaha Signature Suites are located on the two top-most floors of the Mayfair, where residents will get a scenic view of Melbourne’s major landmarks while enjoying the presence of well-crafted and sculpted furnishings. These suites also have a European kitchen system and wine cellar, a theme one can attach to Hadid’s British roots where she became the first woman to be awarded the Royal Gold Medal from the Royal Institute of British Architects in 2016.

Space Is King

In Mayfair, floor space is taken largely into consideration. This was even more elevated in the Zaha Hadid Signature suites, where even the simplest features – inspired by Hadid’s appreciation of Australia’s fluid landscapes — were thoroughly planned and designed to leave as much space as possible for everyone’s comfort and enjoyment without the feeling of restriction.

Geometric prowess

Hadid’s love for geometric liberty also plays a big part in the design of the Zaha Hadid Signature Suites. Each suite is fitted with optically rich interiors that evokes perception that make space personal, instilling a sense of ownership within each visitor. The purity of formal geometries and fluid lines are acknowledged even by Mathematician; but these spaces also engage the senses and capture the eye—creating unrivalled spatial experiences that Hadid and her team has skillfully crafted.

One With Nature

Facing north and northeast, Residents can indulge in breathtaking natural view of The Shrine of Remembrance and Royal Botanic Gardens, or Albert Park and Port Phillip Bay towards the south and southwest. The Signature suites’ master bedroom also leads seamlessly into a spacious balcony, where residents can take in the cool morning air or refreshing evening chill any time.

The Mayfair was not only built by the best designers and architects, it was also built with the best materials. Just like how a seemingly simple kitchen features a custom sculpted island bench and contemporary joinery, embellished with inspired curved detailing and metallic trims. Or the feel of natural marble flooring in the bathroom, coupled with crafted joinery, vanity, and bath.

“Come second quarter of 2021, the Zaha Signature Suites will embody the late Dame Zaha Hadid’s architectural prowess that consummates a perfect balance of Australia’s landscape with contemporary Melbourne and the lives of these privileged residents.”

Higher Ground:  650 Little Bourke Street, Melbourne

Preserving old structures can often be a challenge, but the team behind Higher Ground stepped up to that challenge and converted a 19th-century power station to the spectacular coffee shop down Little Bourke Street that it is today.

Higher Ground offers a unique ambiance thanks to its high ceiling and centuries-old brick wall design, taking you away from the busy environment of modern-day Melbourne. Don’t come here just to grab a cup of coffee, because you wouldn’t want to leave once you enter; take the time to try their breakfast and lunch dishes as well.
