Making the Right Choice

Have you always felt that that freehold properties near MRT stations will appreciate the fastest over time? This may be true, but have you looked at actual data to compare how much more did freehold condos appreciate more than leasehold ones?

Fun fact:
Some types of freehold condos made losses even though these condos are located at great locations. Many of my clients, who bought such properties in the past, learnt this the hard way, and because of this, they were stuck with their properties for years and missed out on better opportunities. Imagine how would you feel if you were stuck with such a property!

Why learn from your own mistakes, when you can learn from others’?

The logical thing to do with a million-dollar investment is to do your proper due diligence before taking the plunge. But with so many properties out there, you cannot be spending weeks and months to analyse all of them one by one. You have better things to do with your time, like spending it with your friends and family. What if someone else has already done the research for you, and you can get it for free?

Using a Systematic Approach

Not all projects are made equal. Some will make more money than others. Do you have what it takes to identify a property that offers better capital appreciation? Let’s start with a simple test…

A Simple Test

In your view, which condo enjoyed higher capital appreciation between Oct 2009 to Oct 2019?

  1. Scotts Square (TOP in 2011, freehold mixed development within 5mins walk to Orchard MRT station)
  2. Sunglade (TOP in 2003, 99-year leasehold condo within 5mins walk to Serangoon MRT station)

Hmm.. let’s try another question!

In your view, which condo enjoyed higher capital appreciation between Mar 2015 to Oct 2019?

  1. The Quartz (TOP in 2010, 99 years leasehold condo within 3mins walk to Buangkok MRT station)
  2. Kingsford Waterbay (TOP in 2018, 99 years leasehold condo within 20mins walk to Hougang MRT station, which is the nearest station)

Here are their respective locations. Now make your guess before revealing the answer!

Learn & Do Something Different

How can you make more profits than the average person if you are doing the same thing that the average person is doing?

How can you make exceptional profits if you are simply making the same decisions as everyone else? When it comes to real estate, do you really know what to look out for?

Making decisions based on assumptions or emotions are common reasons why investors lose money in any asset, including shares and real estate. Let’s avoid that together. I can teach you a tried and tested framework that you can apply on your own to any properties that you see next time. I have shared this framework via private consultations with many people who have benefited from it. If you think this will be useful for you, let’s have a chat!

Home visits are open now. If you're looking to buy or sell your home, or rent, I highly recommend my agent William... Chen.He can be contacted at 9011 9170.William is a former banker and ex-colleague of mine. Beyond just the basics of being a housing agent, he is articulate and analytical. William gives good insights on trends and updates of the housing market. Please know that I'm picky and careful about the words I use and saying 'articulate' and 'analytical' about someone is not a common occurrence.He is a good listener, which is a key trait in his role. A good problem solver who gives solutions and has your interests at heart.William also likes Ollie and Ozzy (my cats), which was a plus for me. And no, I don't get any commission from any onward sales he may make from this.read more
