Land betterment charge rates marginally increased for residential properties
Sector 97 (covering Bedok South Avenue, New Upper Changi Road, Bedok Roadway plus Upper East Coastline Road) noticed the largest rise of 5%. “The chief valuer possibly attributed the uplift in land values to the cumulative sale of Bagnall Court early on this year, as well as the statement of more targeted green areas in the Bayshore precinct, which will certainly enhance the liveability of housing spaces,” says Lam Chern Woon, Edmund Tie’s head of research study and consulting.
