The Vales EC

The Vales EC . New Executive Condominium . 500m to Sengkang MRT Station

The Vales EC is a new Executive Condominium that will be launching for sale in July 2015. This Sengkang EC is expected to be well sought after, as it is a very rare one for a new EC – it will be within walking distance, around 500m from Sengkang MRT station & Compass Point Mall. The Vales EC is also comfortably within 1km from Nan Chiau Primary school.

The Vales executive condo is located along Anchorvale Street / Anchorvale Crescent in Sengkang. It has one of the best locations of all the available ECs for sale now, where access and amenities are concerned.

It is directly in front of Cheng Lim LRT station, one stop from Sengkang MRT station. So on rainy days you can hop onto the LRT instead of walking the 7 minutes or so to the MRT.

The Vales EC is also directly across the road from the upcoming Sengkang Hospital. This makes it a great investment, should you decide to sell or rent it out after you’ve stayed in your unit for at least 5 years. There is certain to be good demand from hospital staff.

The Vales Executive Condominium . Highlights

  1. The Vales EC sits in a well established HDB estate, with a complete range of amenities.
  2. Sengkang Town Centre with its shopping mall, MRT station, public library, banks, shops, supermarket, food court, cafes, and restaurants, polyclinic & post office, are 500m or one LRT stop away.
  3. Very quick access to the expressway: one minute drive to the TPE (Tampines Expressway). Off-peak 20 minutes drive to Orchard Road, the CBD, Marina Bay, & Changi Airport.
  4. Nan Chiau Primary School is a walkable 650m down the road, and within the crucial 1km range for priority. Nan Chiau has a well earned reputation for nurturing students & producing results above the national average, lead by experienced & caring staff.

Economics of The Vales EC

  1. 15 to 20% (ie. around $200K to $300K) cheaper than similar new private condominiums.
  2. First time buyers are eligible for up to $30,000 CPF housing grant.
  3. You do not pay any agent’s fee or commission (unlike for HDB resale flats).
  4. Historically of all residential property types, executive condos have achieved the most capital appreciation. Not only do they reflect the general appreciation of the market, but they also enjoy a greater upside as they close the gap with prices of private condominiums after the 5th year.

What must I do to book a unit at the Vales EC?

You must fill in an application form and submit the necessary documents. If you drop us your contact details here, we will help you check your eligibility and arrange for your application.

Applications must be registered at the showflat computers (the only official e-application system), that are linked to the HDB system, in order to get a ballot number.

Note: Applications cannot be done via HDB website. Websites with online e-application forms are also NOT linked to the HDB system either.

::

Am I eligible to buy the Vales EC?

You are if:
. You are a Singapore citizen and your partner is a Singapore citizen or PR.
. At least 21 years old.
. Your total monthly household income does not exceed $14,000.
. You form an essential family nucleus as defined by HDB.
. You & your partner have not bought a flat direct from HDB or with a grant more than once.
. None of your family nucleus has owned private property within the last 30 months.

That was the short answer; for detailed criteria including what defines a family nucleus, see The Vales EC Eligibility.

::

Can I buy the Vales EC if I currently own a HDB flat?

Yes, if you
. Have not bought a flat direct from HDB or with a grant more than once.
. Have already stayed in your flat at least 5 years if bought direct from HDB or with a grant.
. If your resale flat was bought without a grant, you must fulfil your MOP before the Vales EC gets TOP.

You must also sell off your current HDB flat within 6 months of TOP of the Vales EC.

::

When can I sell or rent out my Vales EC unit?

. Can be sold to Singapore citizens or PRs after 5 years. Or rented out to anyone then.
. Fully privatized after 10 years. Can then be sold to anyone, including foreigners or developers.

::

What benefits do 1st Timer Buyers get?

. May be eligible for the CPF housing grant, up to $30,000 to help pay the 15% downpayment.
. Get priority in selecting a unit (70% of the units are reserved for 1st timers in first month).

::

Can 1st Timer Buyers ‘keep’ the Housing Grant for next BTO / EC purchase instead?

  • No. The CPF Housing Grant cannot be kept for the next BTO / EC purchase.
  • Furthermore, even if you don’t take the grant this time, you will still be subject to the resale levy if you buy a BTO / new EC in future.
  • So if you are eligible, do avail yourself of the CPF Housing Grant now.

See details on the amount of CPF Housing Grant, and eligibility, at this link (opens in new window).

::

What benefits do 2nd Timer Buyers get?

  • Buyers with existing housing loan may still get up to 80% loan even if you have an existing housing loan (unlike for private condos).
  • Not affected by the CPF Minimum Sum rule when using your CPF funds.

::

What’s the payment schedule like for the Vales EC?

If you opt for Normal Payment Scheme (NPS):

  • First 5% cash (via a cheque) at time of booking the unit.
  • Next 15% within 9 weeks (typically) of booking the unit. This 15% can be from CPF Housing Grant, or from CPF funds, or from cash.
  • The remaining 80% can be from CPF funds, bank loan, or cash. This is payable progressively, which means you (or the bank if you take a loan) pays out the money as and when construction work reaches certain stages. If you take a loan, your monthly instalments start small and slowly increase.

If you opt for Deferred Payment Scheme (DPS) (purchase price is around 2 to 3% higher):

  • First 5% cash (via a cheque) at time of booking the unit.
  • Next 15% within 9 weeks (typically) of booking the unit. This 15% may be from CPF Housing Grant, or from CPF funds, or from cash.
  • Neither you nor the bank (if you are taking a loan) pays anything till the project completes. At that point, upon TOP, you / your bank will need to pay another 65% of the purchase price. Your mortgage repayments therefore start at this point, based on whatever the bank disburses.

::

Do I have to pay any admin charges or commissions or agent fees?

No, no charge at all. We are here to provide you all the information, and help you book your unit of choice at directly from the Vales EC developer, at no charge. No obligation either.
