There are a lot of things to consider when you are listing down your property investment strategies especially when you would like to go into overseas property investment. Is buying property in Singapore worth it? Why is a foreigner buying property in Singapore? Which district should I check when buying property?
There are different districts in Singapore that you could choose from and one of the best is Orchard. Surprisingly, Orchard is not only about shopping, as the district has quiet streets that offer different types of housings. These include bungalows, condominiums and townhouses.
It is recommended by Singapore expats because of these four reasons:
Traveling to and fro Orchard is very easy because it has access to expressways, MRT stations and bus stops. When traveling by car you can go from north to south by going through CTE (Central Island Expressway) and from east-west through AYE (Ayer Rajah Expressway).
Orchard has its own major train station that is Orchard (NS22). It’s a few stops away from Dhoby Gaut which provides easy access to all Singapore lines.
Since Orchard is considered to be the central hub, a lot of the buses that pass through the district come from all four corners of Singapore.
2. Health services
There are a lot of medical facilities in Orchard. There you can find the two best hospitals, Gleneagles Hospital and Mt Elizabeth Hospital, to ensure that you and your loved ones could get the best medical care there is. A lot of practitioners also reside in Orchard that is why it is easier to look for private doctors.
There are quite a number of international schools in Orchard, including Avondale Grammar School, the Overseas Family School and the International School Singapore—Elementary School and Middle School. Other major schools in Singapore are within commuting distance as well.
And of course, shopping! Orchard road is known for its array of shopping choices, but it does not mean that everything here is high-end. You can still buy mundane items for everyday necessities. You can check out this link to find out more about Orchard Road.
