The Emperor’s New Clothes

Posted on Jan 6, 2013 in Articles, Property Investors, Property Market by 2 Comments

Singapore’s private residential property index continued to climb to 211.9 in Q4 2012 from 208.2 in Q3. This is a hike of 1.8 percent compared to the 0.6 percent increase in the previous quarter. HDB re-sale prices have hit an all-time high and Executive Condominiums (ECs) have reached record-selling price of S$2 million dollars. The statistics are already well-known to you so I’m not going to further bore you with it in this article.

While writing this article, frustrations have gotten me to a point of banging the table and screaming, “STOP saying ‘fairy tales’ to property buyers!”

Listening to the ‘property experts’, you’d never guess it was the 21st Century. They all seem to be teaching the same old strategies for property investing and telling unwitting buyers that beautiful ‘fairy tale’ endings are a reality, financial crisis only belong to pre-historic times and property downturns are just myths and legends!

Don’t Be Fooled – There Is No Magic Pill for Success in Property Investment

And here is one perfect gift for lazy people – a new type of Rubik’s Cube

Yes! I just purchased the best property investment deal from a property seminar. I don’t have to do anything. All I do is sit on my couch and the checks will be deposited into my bank account. They say they promised a 20% guaranteed return during the first year with a contract. Should I want to sell it anytime, they will either find buyers for me or simply buy it back from me. And the best part? I have only to fork out a tiny sum for the property down-payment. Where’s the exact location of the property? Well, just Google, it’s somewhere there on the map. I’ve seen it on presentation and it looks just fine. No risks, little money to start yet comes with great returns!
