Blue Horizon is located in the West Coast Crescent. There’s much to see and do in the Western part of Singapore, you and your family will definitely never run out of ideas for fun and quality time. Don’t you think it’s time to go West?

1. Location and Accessibility

There are six shopping malls in the West, specifically in the Jurong area which is one MRT station away from Clementi MRT. You can find a good mix of local and international flagship stores, factory outlets and boutiques for your retail therapy needs at Westgate, Jurong Point and IMM.

For nature lovers, you can enjoy the tranquillity in the Chinese and Japanese Gardens located around Jurong Lake, and get up close and personal with 5,000 birds from more than 400 species at Jurong Bird Park, one of Singapore’s most iconic attractions.

Exciting new projects for Jurong West are also in the pipeline including the construction of the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High-Speed Rail (HSR). With Singapore’s terminus station located in Jurong East, the HSR link is expected to make travelling between Singapore and Malaysia more seamless and convenient.

Working in the Central Business District? Blue Horizon is linked to the rest of the island by West Coast Highway so you can get to your workplace in just 20 minutes.

2. Increasing Rental Price and High Gross Rental Yield

Blue Horizon’s monthly rental price for a two-bedroom unit in 2019:

  • January to March 2019- up to $3,100
  • April to June 2019- up to $3,400
  • July to Sep 2019- up to $3,500
  • Oct to Dec 2019- same as Q3 up to $3,500

A middle floor two-bedroom unit in Blue Horizon measuring 937 sqft is at S$1,000,000. Renting it out for $3,500 per month gives you a staggering 4.2% gross rental yield. This is higher than Singapore’s market gross rental yield of 3.30%!

How did we get 4.2%? (Gross rental income for 12 months/ purchase price of the property) x 100= gross rental yield.

Calculating for Blue Horizon’s Gross Rental Yield

A two-bedroom unit at Blue Horizon can cost $1,000,000 and the monthly rental contract is up to $3,500. You can check other rental rates for nearby two-bedroom properties using Ohmyhome.

Gross Rental Income of $3,500 x 12 months= $42,000/purchase price at $1,000,000= 0.042*100= 4.2%

3. The Uniqueness of Blue Horizon

Blue Horizon consists of one 22-storey tower and four 23-storey towers, with a total of 616 residential units. The best part? A stunning view of the sea! With beautiful palm trees, soothing cool waters and lovely landscape, this property near Clementi MRT Station will definitely call your name.
