    I'm staying there. Nice pleasant area, but abit expensive compared to similar flats in Bishan.

    They just painted the flats,which is a good thing. Facilities wise it has all the essentials like market, supermarket, kopitiams, clinics...etc. All a stone's throw away.

    Bewary of those flats right next to Catholic high. It can get alittle noisy.

    Bishan Heights was then the tallest HDB blocks here.

    And the first to exceed 30 floors tall.

    Although Both are similar in price but you must know what is your need? Do you Really need a condo or 5 rm flat.

    For Condo every month other then paying your monthly installment u still got to pay maintiance fees n sinking fund! depending on development n type of condo u r in which may add up to about $2-300+.

    For 5rm u no need to pay maintiance n sinking fees, so save $$$. 5 rm would also sometime get to enjoy subsidy from the govt.

    U got to do your financial sums properly n carefully. work on long term basis.

    Next: bishan heights is abt 8 years old (the younger the flat the more ex it is especially just matured flats which is 5 years old), near good school n amenities thats why they comand such a premuim.

    If u r thinking of resale in future they value of condo will most likely depriciate, while the flats in Bishan will most likely maintian the same due to the amenities and good schools around there and FYI RGS will be shifting back together while RI n RJC.

    But do not expect Resle Prices to go up alot as there will never be another boom like 1995. in which at that time a 5rm flat can easily fetch $500k++ so do not expect too much.

    Actually this is a good time to buy condo as the price is at bottom...
    hmm... in fact prices are on the way UP in most of the place in singapore!

    Just seal the deal for a Condo... a Unit in Summerdale (any CS'er staying there?) between Lakeside and BoonLay MRT

    maintainance fees only 180, so tat is quite worth it, considering the facilities are all in v.good condition. 5 yrs old condo and got it at valuation price... 450k for a 1399sqf unit...
