  1. Hi Snoozee and petetherock, Thanks for the advice. Any good builder to recommend? Can PM me. Thanks.
  2. Hi Snoozee, Normal mode for most of us are public transport except my wife who is taking the car. Definitely want to avoid ABSD so has just dispose my HDB and now waiting someone to purchase my current unit. Will go to rent a place for 6 months and look for landed to purchase. Shortlisted 2 units. Want to get the one nearer to MRT but since it is old... will have a lots of things to do up. I have taken a look at one house last year and the owner claim that 200K was done up for the A&A. I am quite surprised that 200K can changed a 20years old house to quite a modern look. Build up is around 2500sqft in a 2 storey house. Is this normal? May i get your opinion, if i purchase a house which is 20years old around 2500sqft buildup, and would like to reno it, Ie, not touching the structure, but would like the "window opening" to be bigger,changed all flooring, repaint, re-tile, what is the budget I should be looking? Is 400K enough?
  3. Hi Guys, Came across this forum only yesterday. I am in the process of selling my condo and will purchase a landed in D26 within the next 6 months. Few houses came to my mind and would like to clarify my doubts. 1) House #1 : Build in 2014. Not very convenient as far from main road and mrt. --> Land is around 1700sqft. Nice and well maintained house (perhaps a new coat of paint was done). --> Few things to be done. 1) Kitchen too small and would like to double the kitchen area and will eat into the car pouch area. (Estimated an increase of 50sqft). 2) changing of sanitary fittings and adding some awnings. 3) Change of aircon. 2) House #2 : Build in 2000. --> The pro is nearer to mrt but it is a old house. Bigger land size, cheaper in term of selling price, but need to do a major overhaul. 1) My question is how much do i need to set aside for renovation for a build up of 2500sgft? assuming all floorings, kitchen cabinets, aircon wardrobe etc to be hack. 2) what is the kind of budgets I should be looking for if intend to build another level to increase 2500sqft to 3200sqft? 3) Attic or roof is better in term of maintainence for long term consideration? 4) Roughly the timeline for the above AA. Intend to stay in this landed for the next 15 years and I am still considering. Thanks. Eric.
