Cairnhill Nine Review
Cairnhill Nine is undeniably one of the most awaited real estate projects in Singapore. The irresistible combination of its upmarket location and luxuriant interiors makes it an ideal investment, both in terms of asset-accumulation and as one’s not-so-humble-abode. This is probably why it has been matched up against OUE’s Twin Peaks condo within to same precinct (at Leonie Hill).
However in terms of pricing, is it a worthy buy? Let’s compare Cairnhill Nine with some of the other prominent condominiums within the area.
|Property Name||Tenure||Year of Completion||Average PSF Price|
|The Laurels||Freehold||2013||S$ 2,407|
|Urban Suites||Freehold||2013||S$ 2,624|
|Urban Resort Condominium||Freehold||2013||S$ 2,223|
|OUE Twin Peaks||99 Years||2015||S$ 2,871|
|Cairnhill Nine||99 Years||2017||S$ 2,414|
The above data and price statistics collected are for all transactions recorded since year 2015 to March 2016. And looking at Cairnhill Nine price comparison with other property projects, the price doesn’t seem to be “incredibly” attractive, especially when some neighbouring freehold properties are transacting close to Cairnhill Nine’s average PSF price.
As for OUE Twin Peaks, it is definitely one of the priciest development in the precinct. Still, developer OUE remains firm on their asking prices as it stands out among its competitors by offering top-end finishings and services to its residents. And if I have to choose between Cairnhill Nine or Twin Peaks, it’s definitely going to be Cairnhill Nine.
But if we were to just look at its immediate surrounding, the development is practically surrounded by freehold properties. On top of that, there will be a mosque right below the residential development at 1st floor. It’s not a prejudice against any religious places, but it’s usually a concern for property buyers due to the possibility of congestion and noise.
No doubt, having a home in Cairnhill Nine is sure to be a matter of much pride and prestige for anyone and everyone. However, in my opinion, I would rather pick the freehold properties (such as the latest 8 Hullet) within the vicinity as they prove to possess more value in the long run due to the tenure, especially when the price gap isn’t that great.
