Our New Home (Executive Maisonette)

1,315 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone....we have just purchased our first home...an executive maisonette in Hougang. Walking distance to the MRT and amenities. Sharing the floor plan first....we have been surfing the net for ideas...so far it is RenoTalk, Home and Decor and Houzz.. Is there other sites you would recommend. We are meeting our first potential ID this saturday, and we are very excited. :)

Welcome to RT...wow $715K that's alot of money. :thumbs up:

Thanks Multi888....i couldn't agree more that it is pricey...but that was one of the cheapest when we were shopping around already. :( I was quite specific with location...and it had to be near the MRT...and supermarkets

Hi Vanessa,

Congrats on your EM purchase. I am also staying in Hougang. Wow. With S$715K, I presume that the condition should be okay? Is yours at Kovan side Blk 200+ series? The prices there tend to be higher when compared to the 400+ and 500+ series.

Good luck on your reno experience and journey. :yamseng:

It is actually the 500+ series. The house is well taken care of, but we will still have to do major reno to make it our home....it is old fashion. It was one of the cheaper EMs i saw in the NE area already :(

My EM also in Hougang... Blk 600+ series (next to swimming pool / stadium).

Wow.... 715k! Most important is you and your partner love the place.

Hi Vanessa,

I see. Yap. 500+ series very much nearer to Hougang Mall as compared to mine.

I just did my reno. A major one too. Had rebuilt a bedroom for my mum and maid on the lower deck. More spacious due to expansion through kitchen area and kitchen space created by roofing void balcony.

Guess your partner and you need to plan your needs and wants. :)

All the best.

If we base on today's price, it is reasonable get an EM at 715k. Many reports in the media shows incredible EM prices of over 900k in places like Bishan n Queenstown. R u doing a major overall? What r u retaining from the previous owner?
