Singapore residents are very much familiar with Bishan. But because the estate is quite small compared to the other regions, they never thought that it’s an ideal district to live in. Many prefer to live in areas including Holland Village, Bukit Timah, and East Coast which are more popular and an epitome of prime neighborhood.
However, these past few months, Bishan is rapidly gaining popularity particularly with investors. Its HDB prices are constantly increasing and more real estate properties are developing in the area. So what makes Bishan a diamond in the rough?
It may not be a prime location in the central but Bishan isn’t really that far from the metropolis. It is also highly accessible from various points such as Thomson Road, Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1, Central Expressway, and Braddell Road. Several stations at the North-South Line can also make your travel to Bishan easier particularly the City Hall, Newton, Novena, and the Orchard. You can also head on to the bus interchange from Bishan so it’ll be a convenient ride to Shenton Way, Changi Airport, and Pasir Ris.
The area is also self-sufficient and you may experience the utmost convenience even if you have a family. The highly regarded schools including Raffles Institution, Ai Tong School and ITE College Central to name a few are all here in Bishan. There’s also a nearby stadium, park, fishing areas, spa, hiking trails, golf courses and more.
Despite the fluctuating resale prices of flats in Singapore, Bishan properties can be sold for more than a million dollars. Just recently, a couple of properties were purchased from $812,000 to $1.05 million. The convenience and the amenities mentioned before were just some of the reasons why even older flats in the estate are still valued at high prices.
Bishan is more promising now than ever. Property prices are constantly gaining and actually beating the sluggish market sales in other estates in Singapore.
