Upcoming executive condos that will MOP in 2024 and 2025

Upcoming executive condos that will MOP in 2024 and 2025

If you're not interested in HDB flats or feel like private properties are too expensive, Executive Condos (ECs) might be just what you're looking for.

Known as "sandwich flats," ECs in Singapore offer a mix of public and private housing, ideal for middle-income Singaporeans who earn too much for HDB flats but can't afford private condos.

Nowadays, as new property launches get pricier, more people are considering resale ECs instead.

So, let's explore some ECs reaching their Minimum Occupation Period (MOP) in 2024 and 2025 for all you hopeful buyers:

Should you choose resale ECs over new launches?

Opting for resale ECs over new launches presents several advantages:

  • Closer to full privatisation: Resale ECs achieve full privatisation after 10 years, allowing owners to expand their pool of potential buyers by selling to foreigners and entities.
  • No need to dispose of existing flat: Unlike new EC buyers who must dispose of their previous HDB flat within six months, buyers of resale ECs can retain their existing property.
  • No MOP: Resale ECs offer flexibility as they do not have an MOP, enabling buyers to move in immediately or retain their existing property.
  • You can inspect the actual unit: Buyers can physically inspect units in resale ECs, avoiding surprises from floor plans or defects common in new constructions.
  • Potential for higher rental income: Resale ECs can be rented out immediately, allowing buyers to generate rental income without waiting for the MOP to end.
  • Valuation and pricing: Resale ECs may offer better value compared to new launches, potentially providing higher returns on investment due to lower initial costs and higher rental income potential.

Back in 2018, Rivercove was the only EC that launched during that year. This combined with the property's prime location and appealing features naturally garnered significant interest during its launch.

One of the notable features of Rivercove Residences is its direct access to the park connector, allowing residents to enjoy leisurely walks and outdoor activities along the scenic waterfront.

Its proximity to the Punggol Reservoir also offers stunning views and a tranquil atmosphere, providing a refreshing retreat from city life.

Another plus point? Residents of Rivercove also benefit from excellent connectivity to public transportation. The nearby Tongkang LRT station provides easy access to Sengkang MRT station and the integrated bus interchange at Compass One shopping mall.

The condo will approach the end of its MOP in the second half of 2025. Once again, as the only resale EC to be (re)introduced next year, we're anticipating renewed interest in the property — so be sure to keep an eye out for this one.
