    since duno when ...govt had stop selling FH land

    FH land is definitely better den LH....BUT one has limited investment TIME HORIZON....SO, location still matters the most for me most impt is to choose the right project/location/price at tat point of purchase....buy ppty A instead of B or C...3-5yrs later....which one appreciates the most....

    somemore no kids...who to pass the freehold ppty/landed to??? also gives back to AH GONG(govt) or ur siblins/uncle/auntie etc...haha

    Very long... but basically... MM units are a waste of time if you are not prepared to live in it.

    8K is nothing lah... donate it to developer and catch the new sales which will be at least 3 to 5% cheaper in the short run.. and quite likely to up to 20% in the longer run (as reported in the news).

    If you want to make your agent feel better... give her $500 as consolation money and be firm that you will not exercise the option.

    Informing the developer early is good as developer may even counter offer or give u some discounts... or to put up the unit for sale to others quickly.

    I would think that developer would give u some discounts if you inform them that you are very firm in NOT EXERCISING THE OPTION. Update us.

    My view is that with the new ruling, it is in fact good news for private property with low quantum, e.g. mass market condos...

    Reasoning being
    Those HDB "X generations" who were buying and upgrading to mass/mid market condos are already staying well beyond their HDB's MOP...so this segment is not really affected at all.
    They are not bound by the new ruling,
    and continue to be ready pool of buyers for mass market condos...

    Also, a segment of private property owners were buying into HDB resales as well for "investment/rental",
    but with the new ruling, they can't buy resale HDB anymore...
    they will have to instead start turning into buying private property for investment instead - especially those with lower quantum...
    thus this renewed segment providing more support for mass market private property...
