Toh Guan Grove (Aug 2021 Build-To-Order)

I bought my 4-room resale flat, 90 sqm (high floor unit) at Toh Guan in June 2009 at S$355,000.

Market Valuation: S$360,000.

S$5,000 below valuation because the owner knocked down the wall of one bedroom (bedroom 3 shown below) to merge with the living hall. I re-built the bedroom wall at less than S$1,000. :)

Keeping the information below for future references.

HDB | BTO Project Details

For the first time in 10 years, the non-mature estate of Jurong East will get its first new flats. A total of 569 two-room flexi, three-room and four-room flats are on offer at Toh Guan Grove, which sits near the upcoming Toh Guan MRT station on the Jurong Region Line.

Prices start from $237,000 for a three-room flat and $347,000 for a four-room flat.
The estimated completion date is in the first quarter of 2026, so buyers have to wait about four years for their homes.
The last BTO launch for Jurong East was Teban View in September 2011, where some 518 three- and four-room flats were released for sale.
Prices then started from $158,000 for a three-room flat and $271,000 for a four-room flat.
If I am given a choice to purchase a unit here, I will purchase the highest, the biggest unit, S$436,000. You set to gain the maximum profits if you intend to sell next time after the MOP.

Based on the site plan below, there are 7 choices, namely, stack 291, 293, 295, 301, 307, 309 and 311.

I will pick stack 295.

Stack 301, 309, 311 are west-sun facing.
Same for the stack 291 and 293 but not too extreme.
That leaves with choice of stack 295 or 307.

Stack 307 facing is not bad but there is a bus-stop at the opposite street. The bus noises can transmit to the high floors easily.

Stack 295 is almost perfect but do take note there is a pavilion next to it. You know all kind of events can be held there but again at the highest floor, you shall not be affected by the activities below.

Hence, my choice will be stack 295.
