home and/or retirement home in Xiamen, China
we start this summary, a note of thanks to Lisa, who kindly
volunteered and organised the function room at her residence
for our meeting. Not to mention the many Chinese New Year
total of 8 attendees showed up, a much higher number than expected.
I am new to SHC and it was good that I can now put a face and
person to the names that I had been corresponding with digitally.
we got over the 'hellos', I started introducing the project.
Everyone were quite impressed by the scale and scope of this
project and the questions came thick and fast. Here are the main
How did I get to know this development?
was visiting Xiamen with my family when I walked passed what
looked like a tour agency. Instead, it turned out to be the
office/showroom for this development and an accidental visit
turned into a purchase!
What is Xiamen like?
has been voted as one of the top 3 cities in China, way ahead
of even Beijing and Shanghai. Traffic is orderly, there is
little pollution, social security is good and people are
generally friendly. Temperature does not go below 10 degrees
What are the outdoor activities we can do as residents?
Swim, raft, fish, horse-ride, trek, golf, sun-tan, farm visit,
temple visit, massage and many others.
How much are the units?
apartments - 45 - 80sqm at about S$40 to S$65K (Furnished)
Penthouses: 140-1800sqm at S$120K onwards (Furnished)
Villas: 2000sqm and above at about S$500K onwards
How can I trust that the developer will not fail or run away?
one can guarantee! However, the local Xiamen people
says that this is
a large and reputable developer. In addition, my
purchased unit is due soon and I
will know any problems way ahead of you.
When am I visiting the project next and can we go together?
expect to visit the development around May - July and will update
everyone once I have a firm date. You are invited to join me
and we can go as a merry group and try to drive some good bargains
with the developer for those interested to purchase.
if you are going on your own to Xiamen, just give me an email
and I'll provide you with the showroom address.
How can we develop a RV community?
believe those interested in Xiamen as an investment and/or holiday
and/or retirement home should visit the place physically and
decide their own financial and time commitments.
you have the intention to purchase, we can form a RV community
together for mutual assistance as well as possible joint marketing
and management of our retirement homes.
have some RV plans and will send to you within a week or two. We can
then further discuss and refine.
