It depends on how you look at the property market in 5 years time. If you think that property prices will be much lower (more than 20% lower) than present in 5 years time, you can opt to continue renting. Otherwise, my advise is to purchase one instead.

Should you need any further assistance in matters relating to property, please contact me at my mobile 9748 6305. I will be happy to assess and share with you the possibilities for you in the current market.

Thank you.

Best regards,

It depends on the locality you are looking at. If in your opinion prices and rents will continue to fall in the area, then it makes sense to rent for the time being, will stretch the dollar more. Sometimes subjective factors come into play as well. If you need certainty in terms of family planning for next few years, then renting is not useful as landlord might not renew with you.

May I have more info and requirements about your plans so to make better recommendations? Thanks and look forward to value-add to your housing plans.

Hi, I'm not sure why you would want to rent instead of buying your own property. Anyway, it is a good time for both as it is a good time to buy as the property market is soften for the last few years, and also a good time to rent as there are too many supply of newly TOP condo units to meet the demand.

Good afternoon.

I've had clients ask me this question a lot in the past 2 years. Last year, I said to rent in the meantime while waiting for home prices to fall further.

However now that prices have bottomed out and with increasing transactions in the market, I would highly advise you to buy before prices start increasing.

Do drop me a text/whatsapp or give me a call at 91708295 and I will discuss further with you as well as send a shortlist of suitable properties catered to your requirements.

I look forward to assisting you!

It really depends what you can do with the difference in terms of cash commitment towards purchasing and renting up front. It can be very significant since the upfront cash requirement is minimum 5%. If target type of property is is above $2m, it will be at least $100k, while a rental unit will probably set you off by about $15k at most up front. The difference of $85k, if you have your ways to make the money work, could potentially give you better returns and higher fluidity that what real estate does.

Real estate investment requires to be long term in my own opinion and I do not think you will get significant returns after 5 years but it will be a roof over your head, where you build your family. The intangible values which you get out from this home will be unimagineable, therefore even if you are selling it at a slight loss, there are still consumers who feel that it is all worthwhile.

Dear Sir/Mdm,

In my opinion, buying will be a better option since you will be paying mortgage for your own property instead of paying for someone's property. If you purchase the RIGHT development, there is a good chance that you will be able to enjoy capital appreciation in the future. 5 years is a good time horizon for prices to increase.

The worse seems to be over for our local real estate market and there are signs that the market is turning for the better. New sales and resale figures are hitting a 2.5 year high with developers bidding aggressively to replenish their land banks. Interest rates remain low as banks introduced loan packages with less than 1.5% i/r to gain market share.

Please feel free to contact me so that I can understand your needs better and share with you which are the projects that I feel have got good upside potential!
