    For point number 4, big units in ccr hardest hit during the short 6mths firesale period in 2009......so many such units trying to sell at a loss.

    Would you also consider FH, 999LH, 99LH... etc as factors? Possible impact on potential capital gains no?

    Location and flipping of units are prime factors for capital gain.

    for best investment point of view..
    1 bedder (above 500sq ft) in prime..eg: altez,clift,tribeca,metz
    2 bedder in city fringe..eg: citylights,southbank,citysquare,belvedere,seafront.
    avoid suburbia for investment,to live in is good.

    There is no such thing as avoiding any place for investment, anywhere can be good for investment if the entry price is right. For suburbia, you can see good rental returns place capital appreciation as well, depends where you buy and at what price. For prime, if you can stomach a drop from $2k psf to $1400psf during a crisis, you can go ahead to buy. For ocr, if you buy at $800psf, how low can the price go especially when you have hdb prices to act as a buffer.

    frankly speaking, there is no such thing as "best" investment choice...
    else everyone will be doing the same...
    it's all up to how hungry you are in terms of risk appetite...
    high risk would probably produce high returns...

    if you ask me, best to invest in landed...
    location wise, you have to do you own research... i ain't gonna tell it here...
