The number of unsold EC units dropped from 6520 in the 1st quarter of 2016 to 5471 at the end of June 2016. Additionally, the exceptional performance of the other 3 nearby projects might also be the main factor enticing tenderer to cast their bids. With Treasure Crest selling 72% of their units on its launch weekend, Bellewaters EC 99% sold and The Vales EC 71% sold as at September 2016, it is noticeable that demand is still considerably strong in the area.
Fast forward to September 2017, there are only an estimated of 1000 units of executive condominium left across Singapore from Signature @ Yishun, The Criterion, The Brownstone, Visionaire EC, Northwave EC, Inz Residences and Westwood Residences. With the upcoming launch of Rivercove Residences EC, it will bring the total number to a mere 1600 units for buyers to select from. This only means that units will start to sell faster from now on considering the lower supply and limited choices that buyer possesses.
