Why a lot of owners sell with tenancy?

With merely 2%yield, and very long period before expiry.
If investment, who wants to take over with so little yield for very long.
If own stay, then cannot move in.

What reason neh?

I’m one of the buyer that bought with tenancy. But mine not too bad, left less than 3 months to tenancy ends. Earn rental income of gross 3.9%. Not bad yield.

Owner let go fully furnish so all in all I earned furnitures + remaining lease rental income.
Since I’m not in a rush to move in so let tenant finish tenancy lo.

That's good return.

I'm talking about those left with 1 and half years or close to 2 yrs advertisement, yet with just around 2 or below 2% yield, how does new buyer to squeeze out the last penny

My only guess is that those are not real active sales, just hang there as bait, waste time of potential buyer and agent

I think you're asking why a lot of buyers buy with tenancy.

Seller side, there are plenty reasons to sell. Family developments, portfolio restructuring, pay cut/job loss etc

What does that mean, at least leave some money on the table for the next investor buyer mah. Asking price gao gao till yield falls below 2%, how?

No, I'm asking in fact why agent will market such case, so it's about selling. But you can always a coin has two sides.

I'm not referring to buyers actively looking for a unit with long tenancy with miserable yield, before you get into such.

I viewed such house before
Asking price 870k. Monthly rental 1.8k
Directly facing temple

Agent ask me if I want the house. I say rental too low. I Have to Lose money for a year.

I quite like the hse for bright and spacious . But asking price so high. Rental so low.

Investors who are more sauvy, wants liquidity to pump into other markets. Real estate is not looking good now, even with rental yield in long term.

Similar to stock market, at the same price, some think is cheap, some think is expensive.

Think expensive sell to those who think is cheap.

No one know who's right and who's wrong, and all these can also boil down to individual strategy and portfolio management.

Rental scam a lot also.

Tell you 4% rental yield but when took over, the tenant terminate due to expat clause.

Tell you 2%, not attractive, cannot sell, cannot cover mortgage.

For investment in this current market, you better pay in full. Any rental income goes to your pocket. Vacant also can avoid bank chasing you for $. And pray for capital appreciation.
