Is Penrose Worth Buying?

There is without a doubt that Penrose will be a popular purchase, especially for investors.
(Note: Over the launch weekend, around 90% of the 1 and 2 bedroom units were booked)

The launch fulfils the 3 critical factors that make it a worthwhile investment:

  1. Location
  2. Entry Price
  3. Capital Appreciation

These 3 factors come into place together nicely. With a great location at the city fringe, coupled by it’s walking distance to an MRT station, the psf price points for Penrose are at a very fair value, starting from $1420 psf, perfect for investors. Having a very affordable quantum for 1 bedrooms starting from $788k also makes it a easy investment decision. These are irresistible prices for the Rest of Central Region, and is surely to bring in high interest and demand at launch.

In recent times, more and more people have come to a realization that private properties are known to appreciate at a higher level than public housing, which makes Penrose an ideal choice for HDB upgraders as well.

Penrose is also located at the heart of the Paya Lebar Transformation. Investors will potentially enjoy the future capital upside from owning a property investment in this area, which reinforces the investment potential of this development.
