4. Strong Rental Demand

  • Rental Yield: The projected rental yield for Tembusu Grand is estimated to be around 6% upon completion, driven by strong demand from expatriates and professionals working in nearby employment hubs like Paya Lebar Sub-Regional Centre and Changi Business City.

5. Future Growth Potential

  • Urban Redevelopment: The relocation of Paya Lebar Airbase and the development of new employment hubs are expected to drive demand and price appreciation in the area.
  • Upcoming Developments: New launches and infrastructure improvements in the vicinity will likely enhance the attractiveness and value of the property.

Cons of Investing in Tembusu Grand

1. Leasehold Tenure

  • 99-Year Leasehold: Unlike many freehold properties in the Katong area, Tembusu Grand is a 99-year leasehold development, which may affect long-term value retention compared to freehold properties.

2. Price Premium

  • Higher PSF: Tembusu Grand’s launch price of approximately S$2,423 per square foot represents a significant premium over older leasehold properties like The Shore Residences and Silversea, which are priced around S$1,771 and S$1,764 per square foot respectively.
  • Comparable to Freehold: The pricing is also comparable to newer freehold properties like Amber 45 and Coastline Residences, which may deter some investors who prefer freehold status for long-term investment.

3. Market Competition

  • Abundance of Freehold Properties: The Katong area has a high concentration of freehold properties, which could pose competition and affect the resale value of Tembusu Grand.

Key Factors to Consider

1. Price Appreciation

  • Historical Trends: The Katong area has shown consistent price appreciation due to its desirable location and amenities. The ongoing and future developments in the area are likely to continue this trend.
  • Comparative Analysis: While Tembusu Grand is priced at a premium, its newness and modern amenities may justify the higher price point compared to older developments.

2. Rental Yield

  • Projected Yield: The estimated rental yield of 6% is attractive, especially given the strong demand from expatriates and professionals in nearby employment hubs.
  • Tenant Demand: The proximity to reputable schools and business districts will likely ensure a steady demand for rental units.

3. Comparative Analysis

  • Nearby Condos: Compared to other new launches like Grand Dunman and The Continuum, Tembusu Grand offers a competitive price point and strategic location, making it a viable option for both investors and homeowners.
  • Unit Mix and Size: The variety of unit types and sizes at Tembusu Grand caters to a broad market, from singles to large families, enhancing its marketability.

4. Future Growth

  • Urban Redevelopment Plans: The planned redevelopment of Paya Lebar Airbase and other infrastructure projects will likely boost property values in the area.
  • Economic Factors: Singapore’s stable economy and strategic urban planning continue to support real estate growth, making Tembusu Grand a potentially lucrative investment.

upcoming Condos

Investing in Tembusu Grand can be a sound decision, particularly for those looking for a modern, well-located property with strong rental potential and future growth prospects. However, the premium pricing and leasehold tenure should be carefully considered against personal investment goals and preferences. Conducting a thorough comparative analysis and consulting with real estate professionals can help in making an informed decision.
