When your first decide to satisfy your inner desire to build an investment property portfolio and become one of those gurus with “jet-setting” lifestyle, you start doing careful research in the quest for the perfect property investment advice.

Logic says that in order to learn the subtleties of any craft, you have to go to the masters. If you want to become a doctor, only doctors can teach you. If you want to become a computer programmer, you read thick books on the subject written by experts. If you want to become a martial art master, you go to the grandmasters. Consequently, to build a large, or at least a mini-port-folio of properties you go to the property ‘experts’ a.k.a.  Top property salesman, property consultants, CEOs of property agencies or a property millionaire guru.

There is one big problem, however. That problem is called superficial analysis. Every men out there has an agenda. This can become incredibly frustrating in your search for the truth. Everybody claims to have the secret, but very few are actually sincere. The arena of real estate selling certainly does not enjoy a large number of people telling the truth. Thus, the never-ending propaganda in mainstream media has been going on for a long time.

‘No Money Down’ Properties – Scheme or Scam? (Part 1)

Posted on Jun 11, 2012 in Articles, Investment Strategy by 0 Comments

Even if it’s 100% financed, a bad property is a bad property!

There are many myths about doing property deals. Most contain a grain of truth – and a lot of misunderstanding.

Several printed advertisements and mass emails in the past couple of years have been exhorting that one can invest and own properties, with no money down. One advertisement even claims you can make millions of dollars with no money down in just 24 months!

Essentially, the advertisers would run a paid (or most of the time free) seminars to induce participants to sign up for their property courses that come with very hefty fees in the thousands of dollars to learn their ‘Secrets of the Experts’ property strategies that any average investor could apply with success. These advertisers would also sell you overseas properties on a no money down scheme and claimed they come with high returns.

Oops, Singapore Property Market Crashed: Reasons for Property Market Booms & Busts

Who says property market will never crash?

There are many investors who invest in properties solely for capital gains. They are not concerned with making a rental profit (sometimes happy to make a rental loss!) but with making an above average gain on their initial investment. Understanding why property prices rise and fall is very important if we want to make money!

In Singapore’s highly volatile property market, “You NEVER count your chickens before they hatch.” Inexperienced, amateurs and speculative investors only know how to count chickens.  Successful and smart investors count the eggs and understand why & how they hatch.
