    Default Singapore Talking Episode 1: Housing and property: Are we missing the big picture?

    The topic for the first episode is "Housing and property: Are we missing the big picture?".

    From the discussions and interjections, it's still the same old same old all over again - nothing new.

    Ashraf would do good to invite some of the super old birds of this forum like Reporter and Proud Owner and our venerable jl'Propertism'rx rather than 'yawn' policy makers and 'playing the goody two shoes' property agency owner. Not point inviting the 'commoner' Singaporean also who only knows to ask for hand outs and whine nonstop.

    To answer the question posed by the topic: Is there a big picture? It's just every man for himself. Who gives a s*** for the big picture. Heartening though to see the MP emphasizing 85% of the population are property owners and if prices trend down it would be disastrous (if he speaks for the gahmen stand, it can only mean the prices WILL still go up and up).

    Yeah wasn't ground-breaking or anything, tho the ads for it seemed to suggest so. One gd point made by Ashraf was how in S'pore, we S'poreans are constantly pushed to do the best in school, work, etc., or for that matter, we have the best airport, the first F1 night race, etc., but when it comes to property-buying, we are asked to "mitigate" our expectations. As in, if you want a hm as you are going to get married but can't afford HDB resale or can't wait 3 years or so for a BTO, then stay with your parents (=lower your expectations) until you can, that kinda thing .... Forget the romance and all...

    Somehow I don't think this up trend will last forever. Will an asian sub-prime crisis hit us in 2012?

    Well what goes up must come down and what comes down must go up. That's why property is cyclical. Just time your actions.

    When I said 'up' I'm referring to the general trend over the very long term. Not within any particular cycle. Like general forex trading vs micro-trading.
