Thanks for writing to us on AskGuru.
It really depends on your requirements. If you are looking for yield, then leasehold offers better value because of its higher rental yield. If you are more focused on value, then a freehold condo is a better store of value than a leasehold property because of its timeless lease.

Hope this answers your question.
Mark, your RIGHT choice
I would be most glad to assist you further and please feel free to let me know if you need any assistance. Have a good day ahead.
Leasehold properties consistently outperform freehold properties in Singapore for the past 15 years. If you are looking for a property for investment, leasehold will be a better option because leasehold properties are priced lower, located in more convenient location and these factors translate to higher rental yield and more upside for capital appreciation.
