Are most of those who want to 'retire early' here in 30s?

On average many Singaporeans live till 80s (some 10
Shortening the lives are easy but live till 60s - 70s
are not that difficult.
Of course ultimately it depends on God.

It is weird to see the govt intend to raise the retirement age up & yet some want to lower it.
Some multimillionaires are okay but I bet many of them are still working / income flow.
Because many healthy people like you will live way past 100 years old mah.

My perspective has changed a lot after I read about Dennis Ng few years ago.
Become take it easy on a lot more things.

I m not surprised. When we talk about policies making at national level, its not about your circle of friends or my circle of friends, its about the population, with a large variant.

And Brani HDB flat BTOs should be >$1 million easily.
Thinking of which... would people rather a $1 mil HDB/DBSS at Brani or somewhere near to the GSW

or a $1.5 mil EC turned PC in Punggol


Personally, if not because of kids and parents, I would choose southern side.

Brani HDB BTO should be ready to be launched when your formula feeding babies at home or McDonald kids need daily shave.

Meanwhile eye the PG for - 20% /ready in 4 years.

If public housing (BTO) cost $1mil (even if it is at the GSW), I think EC and P.C. prices would rise a lot more. And of cos private housing at the GSW would be a lot more expensive.

Aiyoh.
Location, location and location.

Duxton & a few other premium BTOs can easily beat many outlying old condo anytime in the resale even though none have condo facilities.

But when duxton sold BTO it wasnít 1mil; Iím saying if at BTO price itís already 1mil can you imagine a resale HDB for 2mil? But then maybe in 20 years itís indeed possible.

Duxton was underpriced by hdb.
Such a rare unique stunning award-winning project.

The Rochor project (BTO? Condo?) should not be too much underpriced.

Don't try too hard to talk up the market that you start spouting BS.

Pinnacle was launched in 2004.

At that time you can easily get a freehold landed terrace at close to $1million. So is duxton still underpriced at 400k?
Letís just say flat price has risen a lot over the past 15 yrs

Interesting article. A different perspective.

Singaporeans, it’s time we stop whining about property prices

We don't whine here.
We believe we can talk down Singapore property market.
But somehow 1 year of CM 2018 later, I managed to talk it up here. Lol

Sumang considered outlying?

It will be old in a number of years time.
