5 things you need to know about the BEST@ series

Nobody buys a home without first checking out the neighbourhood – the Best@ series does that for you.


For those of you who have been wondering what the Best@ series is all about, here are five things you really need to know.

1. The People

Some of us wouldn’t consider buying a home without first meeting the neighbours. One of the central components of the Best@ series is the opinion of personalities living in the area – not celebrities, but ordinary people who have called the area home for years. We ask burning questions about the areas they live in to uncover their reasons for living there and to document, in their eyes, changes over the years.

2. The Neighbourhood

Pretty much anyone could just call up some satellite imagery to get a feel for a neighbourhood – the Best@ series does more than that. With every instalment of the Best@ series, we visit an area’s various points of interest, review the activities to be had there, and plot them all on a map for your convenience.

3. Food and Beverage

We know eating out is definitely something that you’ll be doing, so we visit restaurants, order some food and drink, and review these establishments so you don’t have to make any regretful choices. Each instalment of the Best@ series is packed with restaurant reviews to make the next time you dine out a certain joy.

4. The Community

You could just look out for data points on various developments, but how do you integrate all that into an overall perspective of a community? We talk to experts who give us the kind of big-picture insight that only comes with direct experience. With every instalment of the Best@ series, you can expect in-depth analyses of the past, present, and future of an area, its notable features, and the people who live there.

5. Price Trends

We don’t just spout numbers on developments – we collate those numbers to help you understand the trajectory of property prices in an area and temper your buying decision with actionable intelligence. We get honest opinions from real estate practitioners and investors to highlight impending changes that will have an effect on the prices of property in an area.
