Hi Sir,

There are a few factors to consider when buying an property for investment.

1. Location - Ideally the project should be near an area which has a ready pool of tenants ie near business parks, international schools or CBD. The project should also be near MRT or major transport nodes in order to attract more tenants.

2. Rental Yield vs Price - You should also look at the rental yields that the unit can fetch you vs the price that you are paying. Projects in prime locations such as orchard areas may attract lower yields due to the relatively higher selling price. As such, projects in Rest of Central Region (RCR) may be a better bet as prices are lower which means yields are higher.

3. Age of Condo and Facilities - Tenants prefer a project with decent facilities and less than 15 years old.

4. Number of bedroom - It will depend on which type of tenants you are targeting. 1/2 BR will cater to Single, Couple and Young Family whereas 3/4BR is more suitable for a family.

Hi Mr Tang,

I have shared in another reply to your enquiry that you should consider locations where there is not going to be a huge incoming supply of units for tenants to consider to avoid having more competition moving forward.

In terms of configuration types, a 1 and 2 bedrooms are almost equally in demand based on my observations. More important considerations will be the budget of the tenants these days and we are seeing that the pool of expatriate tenants these days are working on a smaller housing allowance.

As data are relatively transparent these days, perhaps you should do more due diligence in data collection and analysis before making a decision.
