Best in Facilities and Security
Residents can enjoy living in a luxurious condominium that comes with top-class facilities. A concierge welcomes its residents. For those on-the-go and can’t seem to keep up with chores, there is a launderette servicing residents, as well as housekeeping services to keep units tidy and clean. Apart from these, the condominium also boasts of a swimming pool, a wading pool, a Jacuzzi, and a gymnasium. A fitness and wellness centre is also available for fitness freaks and gymheads.
All these facilities are backed up with a top-of-the-line security service system. An intercom connects apartment unit owners to guardhouses to make sure each visitor is verified by the resident. Access cards are given to unit owners in order to use lifts, car lifts, carpark entrances, and the guardhouse. The perimeter of the condominium is monitored by a CCTV system that uses infrared technology. This 24-hour surveillance system is also present at the entrance and exit gates, guardhouses, and basement carparks.
It does seem that the apartments in the Hampshire cluster are getting less “diffentiated” against one another, and for this reason the asking prices seem to be pegged between these apartments. Given the amount of supply in this area the asking prices seem to be rather suppressed, and the rental market might be a little more competitive than usual.
We have also realized that there are a number of listings in which a broad range of asking prices is posted, and this may be the result of “feeler” ads being placed to check on market sentiment. If you’d like help in sifting through the listings to find “legitimate” units for sale or for rent, let me know.
