There are always financial risks involved in the purchase of real estates or property investments. Nobody knows for sure the property market direction. The past historical property records, property trends and tracking will not determine the present or future direction of property market. There are many variable factors that will affect the property prices and values. We need to be familiar with the property market, property sentiments, property cooling measures, government policies, property rules and regulations to make a judgemental call if to buy, sell or rent properties. If we need a permanent place to stay where we called home, then it is best to buy a property within your budget. If it is for property investment, you may invest in property when there is market fear and to sell on strength. Property entry and exit strategies are both an art and science in property investment.
Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) has divided Singapore into three main regions: Core Central Region (CCR), Rest of Central Region (RCR) and Outside Central Region (OCR). These regions contain all 28 of Singapore districts.
Locally, our Singapore household income growth, median income, median home prices, population growth, ageing populations, demographic trends do affect supply and demand of property segments which create buyer’s and seller’s property markets. Singapore property market sentiments, Singapore residential property market outlook, Singapore private property price index are amongst the property guides that may hint at housing market’s property direction.
Singapore remains one of the priciest places to live.

Local and foreign property buyers have asked if leasehold or freehold properties are valued property that give good and better rental yields, potential upside and financial returns on investments. Many are concerned on the real estate huge upfront cash, return on investment (ROI) in real estate, movements in the fixed/variable bank loan interest rates, bank loan quantum, loan to value, mortgage affordability, maximum mortgage loan under MAS regulations, financing real estate purchase, real estate financial calculations, monthly repayment, cash flow, property conveyancing fees, sale and purchase agreement terms, house valuation, use CPF or cash to buy properties, maintenance & sinking funds and property entry/exit strategies.
Age of borrower and number of borrowers affect the borrowing loan quantum. Some has asked on the property market values, property valuations, property market direction, en bloc potentials, Additional Buyer’s Stamp Duty (ABSD), Seller’s Stamp Duty (SSD) and legal matters. Multiple property owners or 2nd property buyer may be interested in commercial, retail, shops, offices and industrial properties as these properties have no ABSD.
Potential rental yields and capital gains are the property investment returns and financial rewards on capital invested. Age of property matters especially if its leasehold as technically, it becomes zero value at the end of its property lease life. Freehold properties are valued about ten percent higher than its similar leasehold property types in the same location.
For property buyers and investors, it is good to know the built environment, property integrated design that adopts total building performance and sustainability. Its structure, facade, building materials, mechanical & electrical and interior systems. The indoor environmental quality is very important which include the thermal performance, lighting performance, acoustic performance and indoor air quality. In the architectural design (its form, shape, orientation, massing) will have bearing on the heat transfer mechanisms in buildings. All these would sustain the smart and green building energy performance in totality. Well maintained buildings will cost lesser on maintenance costs in the long term. It can also hold its property values better.
We connect the property stakeholders, share on property trending information, property transactions, property transacted rental and sale prices, high/low property prices, per square foot (psf) and property investment strategies. Reputation of property developer matters. We do property comparisons in your choice property type, property status, location, tenure and budget.
The key attributes for property comparisons are the property type, property location, price, tenure, surrounding amenities and transport links such as convenient access roads, bus interchange and MRT. To compare Singapore properties, buyers/sellers and investors do look at who are the Singapore property developers, the unit price (psf), unit layout, unit mix, number of units, ceiling height, interior decor, project design, project facing, district, address, tenure, smart home system, smart enabled home, themed playgrounds, facilities, proximity to schools, education and medical hubs, nearby shopping malls, F&B outlets, en bloc potentials, plot ratio, land size/shape, site area, temporary occupation permit (TOP) and future developments of the properties compared. Comparisons of properties are common amongst property buyers and investors.
Affordable prices, lifestyle living and luxury developments. Many of the Singapore properties are near shopping malls, amenities, bus interchanges, MRT and future MRT lines. https://www.lta.gov.sg/content/ltagov/en/getting_around/public_transport/rail_network.html

Lack of property market information, lobsided property views, property locations, property conditions or different property mindset could swing a buyer or seller views on property market values. All these partly explain the range of property prices transacted. Economic, government property policies, government land sales (GLS) https://www.ura.gov.sg/Corporate/Land-Sales and property market sentiments are important elements in shifting forces if it is a buyer’s or seller’s property market.
For own stay or investment, property location and price are two main deciding factors.
For foreign property buyers, investors and expats, many search for popular districts, popular estates, best places to stay, Singapore prime and non-prime properties, prime land at prime district 9 properties (Orchard and River Valley), prime district 10 properties (Tanglin, Bukit Timah and Holland), prime district 11 properties (Newton and Novena) and prime district 15 properties (East Coast and Marine Parade).
