Overall, based on my analysis and evaluation of these factors, I would rate Lentor Hills Residences as an 7 out of 10 in terms of investment potential.
Lentor Hills Residences has a leasehold tenure of 99 years. While some may prefer freehold properties due to their perceived value in the long run, developments under leasehold tenure can offer appealing investment opportunities if priced reasonably. Based on this factor alone, I would rate it 7/10.
Lentor Hills Residences has excellent connectivity as it is situated less than a 5-minute walk from Lentor MRT station on the Thomson-East Coast line (TEL). The development is also near several reputable schools such as CHIJ St. Nicholas Girls’ School, Anderson Primary School and Presbyterian High. There will be a shopping mall at Lentor Modern, an integrated and mixed-use development that will feature approximately 50 shops including cafes, restaurants, clinics, and more. As for outdoor activities, there are parks nearby like Lower Peirce Reservoir Park and Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park. Based on these factors, I would rate its proximity to amenities as 9/10.
According to URA Master Plan 2019, Lentor Hills Residences is situated within an area zoned for residential development with pockets of greenery and parks surrounding it. The future development of Lentor Modern will bring more shopping and dining options to the area. Based on these factors, I would rate its future development potential as 7/10.
