How does Thomson Three compare to other neighbouring condos?
To make an accurate analysis between Thomson Three condo and its neighbours, we will only benchmark against newer developments (with 99-year leasehold status) for “apple-to-apple” comparisons. Since the launch of Thomson Grand in 2011 (which will soon be completed), there hasn’t been any new launch condo in the precinct until Thomson Three. Since then, we’ve seen other condos in the similar district such as The Panorama condo and Sky Vue coming into the property market. Lets take a look at how Thomson Three line up against these developments.
|PROJECT||TENURE||NO. OF UNITS||COMPLETION||AVERAGE PRICE (S$ PSF)||NO. OF CAVEATS RECORDED|
|THOMSON THREE||99 YRS FROM 2012||445||UNCOMPLETED||1,359||407|
|THE PANORAMA||99 YRS FROM 2013||698||UNCOMPLETED||1,267||449|
|SKY VUE||99 YRS FROM 2013||694||UNCOMPLETED||1,439||467|
|THOMSON GRAND||99 YRS FROM 2010||361||UNCOMPLETED||1,286||330|
Thomson Three Review
Based on the above numbers, Thomson Three is certainly facing stiff competition from its neighbours. However sales has been brilliant for this exclusive development. Despite the Thomson Three price index for average PSF is about 7% higher than The Panorama, owning a property in the Upper Thomson precinct is certainly a plus point as compared to an address of a HDB matured estate. However, in today’s volatile property market, we need to be more savvy in terms of numbers and look out for properties with a little more potential upside.
We can argue the fact that Thomson Three will leverage on the ‘MRT effect’ when the upcoming Upper Thomson MRT Line is up and running, but if this is so, The Panorama will also enjoy the appreciation in value. To justify Thomson Three condo’s higher price, will probably be its close proximity to Thomson Plaza where you will find all your daily necessities being met. If you need convenience on a bigger scale, then of course, Sky Vue will be a better option with almost everything need – from dining options, entertainment to transport. But I have my reservations for Sky Vue though.
At Thomson Three, you will get to experience serenity and traquility as you will be surrounded by nature greens in an exclusive neighbourhood. Something which I will personally appreciate is to be overwhelmed by the lush 3,043-hectare Central Catchment Nature Reserve – this is where luxury meets nature. Though the aforementioned details establish sufficiently how lovely this housing complex shall be, here are some more reasons reaffirming Thomson Three’s loveliness. The only other new condo which is so close to nature is The Skywoods, or the upcoming Thomson Impressions.
- The wide range of facilities adds a touch of glamour to everyday living.
- From the investment perspective, this residency appears to have great appreciation prospects given its good location.
- The upmarket address shall add to any resident’s prestige.
All in all, Thomson Three could easily qualify as the dream home everyone desires – living here would be absolutely delightful.
