How to use this preliminary analysis?
1. This analysis is curated for homeowners who need to have a basic understanding of the new launches attributes before deciding to register for one as you only have 2 chances to do so (conditions applied).
2. Our analysis cover potential west sun impact, potential prevailing wind exposure, viewing angle, potential noise disturbance as well as building distance. Our analysis is backed by data to substantiate our findings.
3. Homeowners can manage their expectations base on our individual attributes score OR total score.
Example 1, you only need to know about the west sun exposure, the score is 2 out 4. If the current subscription is already more than 4x and your chance of getting a unit with no west sun impact is 50% (2 out of 4). Then you will need to weight if you want to take the chance since high subscription may not give you that 50 percentile Q which you need, to get a unit with no west sun exposure (assuming no drop out for first 50% Q).
Example 2, you are not sure between 2 developments at 2 different towns. 1 total score 10 out of 20, current subscription rate 4.0; another score of 12 out of 20, current subscription rate of 1.5. Then the development with a score 12 out of 20 and lower subscription rates will give you a higher chance of getting a better Q number and to get better unit with good attributes.
Tampines GreenJade and Tampines GreenQuartz will be 2 of the last 7 sites remaining for development within Tampines South (HDB definition) enclave. The other 5 (including 1 mixed development with residential component) have been slated to be launched before year 2029. To the North, across Tampines Street 96 there is Tampines GreenGem (designed by HDB own BRI team) and to the South, a site reserved for future high-rise residential development. Based on our experience, easy site is made available for BTO, difficult site will be tendered to EC development and challenging site will be tendered to private condominium. We highly anticipate a private condominium (EC worst case) for the site to the South as this tract of land is basically being used to buffer potentially high underground water movement. Being located next to Sungei Bedok and near to Bedok Reservoir, a basement structure will be much preferred to prevent potential future underground water movement. Building a basement will incur additional cost which is not feasible for a BTO development. The future development will definitely take advantage of the wide frontage towards the Bedok Reservoir and thus restrict the view potential from Tampines GreenJade.
“It was a privilege to have engaged you. Choosing a BTO unit was never easy, especially an ideal unit that really suits one's interest. With the help of Soon Ching, this decision-making process has been simplified.
Throughout the entire selection process, he was readily available to answer any of our queries. He also made us realised that most of the “older generation” assumptions (ie. west sun direction, high floor and etc) were all wrong. His report is also very detailed in a way that it included elements like unit to unit distance, unit to rubbish chute distance, the exact sun shading of the unit, and also a 3D view of the unit of your choice. All these elements are the nitty gritty details where one might disregard when it comes to selection of a unit.
In a nutshell, it was a pleasant experience engaging hausanalyst. It definitely gave us a more in-depth understanding on BTO building structure and unit selection.”
