Ang Mo Kio BTO vs Sengkang EC

The bigger build-to-order (BTO) flats in the mature estates of Ang Mo Kio has proved the most popular in the latest Housing Board sales exercise that concluded in last month.

The latest news has shown that 9 applicants vied for each of the 234 four-room flats in Ang Mo Kio on offer.

Recently I have met a few pairs of the young couple who are having the dilemma in selecting either Ang Mo Kio BTO or Sengkang EC.

Let us do the comparison between AMK BTO and Sengkang EC.

Ang Mo Kio Court is situated at the corner of Ang Mo Kio Street 22 and 23.

The name Ang Mo Kio Court is derived from 3 residential blocks which are positioned in a courtyard setting. A precinct green and central urban spine offer lush green spaces and convenient access to commercial facilities in the area.

Treasure Crest is situated at the corner of Anchorvale Street and Anchorvale Crescent.

The indicative price range of the 5 room flat at Ang Mo Kio BTO is $515,000 to $616,000 which is quite close to Bidadari BTO Price.

AMK Court Price Range

AMK Court

You can sell your BTO after 5 years minimum occupation period (MOP).

The price of HDB flat would not be double like the past decade.

This is because of the quantum is higher than before.  A flat at $300k can be $600k now, but a $600k flat cannot be $1.2million in the future.

No doubt AMK Court has a better location, but a 5room BTO selling at $600k is a record high.

Treasure Crest

You can also sell your executive condo after 5 years minimum occupation period (MOP). Not much restriction.

By then the price expected to be on par with the private condo in 2025.  If you compared to the hottest project in 2015, High Park Residences, their average price is about $1,000psf during the launch last year.

The average price of Treasure Crest executive condo is expected to be $740psf or even lower.  There is at least $260psf or even more for your profit margin.
