Thread: Buying Attitude Index - Q3 2017

  1. #1

    Default Buying Attitude Index - Q3 2017

    Why this index?
    In Singapore, there is no official buyer-driven (not developer-driven) index to show Buyers' Attitude for residential properties. This forum is the best place to fill in that gap.

    How does it work?
    Everyone is entitled for one vote, the index is calculated by:
    the percentage of bulls - percentage of bears
    (Please vote even if you are neutral because it will change the overall percentage scores).

    Historical Numbers:

    Quarter, Votes, Index
    Q4 2012, 65, +12
    Q1 2013, 35, +6
    Q2 2013, 56, 0
    Q3, 2013, 59, -34
    Q4, 2013, 53, -45
    Q1, 2014, 45, -33
    Q2, 2014, 43, -44
    Q3, 2014, 48, -19
    Q4, 2014, 29, +14
    Q1, 2015, 29, +7
    Q2, 2015, 20, +15
    Q3, 2015, 16, +56
    Q4, 2015, 7, +28
    Q1, 2016, 12, +34
    Q2, 2016, 16, +32
    Q3, 2016, 16, +81
    Q4, 2016, 11, +64
    Q1, 2017, 14, +21
    Q2, 2017, 13, +77

    (The max of the index is 100, the minimum of the index is -100)

    With Beijing property price drops for 20%, and Canada at its bubble. Are you sure it is still a good time to buy property in Singapore?

    Thanks,
    Richard

    One thing for sure
    this forum is very quiet now

    You can see the number of voters over these years...

    The equivalent forum at HW Zone is a lot more active
    (probably due to more discussions on HDBs and ECs):

    Other disruptive technology effects as well.

    There are other instant peer to peer platforms such as Facebook and WhatsApp.

    For some, neighbors actually become close friends. People who are likeminded and at a similar stage of life congregate.

    Forum hard to do such focused discussions as everyone from a different walk of life and looking at different segment. And the naysayers rarely emerge in such groupings.
    The three laws of Kelonguni:

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