    Trust the govt. All will be happy in the end.
    Why would Govt want property prices to keep going up? At best, to stabilize and kept stable.

    White paper

    http://population.sg/whitepaper/reso...hite-paper.pdf

    "to stop our citizen
    population from shrinking, we will take in between
    15,000 and 25,000 new citizens each year"

    "Singapore’s total population of residents and non-
    residents in 2020 is projected to be between 5.8
    and 6 million, depending on our fertility trends,
    life expectancy, as well as our social and economic
    needs"

    So what is the population today??? What is the projected in 2020???

    Like everything, it can swing anyway....

    For me, no opinion to buy or sell.... I just look at numbers to guide me....

    I didn't say go up. I said all happy.
    The three laws of Kelonguni:

    Where there is kelong, there is guni.
    No kelong no guni.
    More kelong = more guni.

    Someone ask the same question to former PM GOH, his reply is they are buying a piece of space in the air, if they don't stay in it good, they don't add stress to the infrastructure and they pay Tax.

    Now you become the government, you build Billion dollar infrastructure, what will you do.

    ...I feel too many people had over read the 6.9 millions thing...it is good news of course. It is to ensure continual sustainable growth in Singapore, for survival…..gov had learnt enough hard lesson in recent years property price spike…

    When there is too much money in the system, this is what will happen.

    They try it in China, they have ‘The City of the Dead’
