    It doesn't matter, look at the broader picture! Prices will go down in about 1yr but not all due to the measures.

    2. What should those granted options and had not exercised them do.

    Investment deals.
    a) Exercise them anyway,
    b) Don't exercise them

    If term of investment is longer than 5yrs, (a), otherwise if you are looking to do a quick flip i.e. speculator, (b) and run for your life!

    Note that for investment units for holding for 5yrs pls choose the new ones. Cos a old condo of 12yrs old, in time will be 17yrs old. Designwise and capital appreciation, thr will be nthing to speak of. Even for a new condo might not have much of capital appreciation if bgt overprice wf all
    the hidden cost to be factor in

    I should say those those who already bought a place and later with mrt building up is blessed with good luck...so luck counts...but to begin with...location is important when come to buying property..not only for future price appreciation but also for convenience...i guess you know what I mean, there are many condo around ,some near mrt and amenites while some take "MINS" to walk to mrt and not near amenities,, these are the ones I avoid at all costs...just to play safe...although for these tpe of lcation price may appreciate eg savanah...but I dont take too much risk as pty investment involve hundred of Ks...so beter be safe...
