Hi Tan,

Leasehold property: You own the property for the amount of lease period minus off the period taken for construction.

Freehold property: You own the property almost indefinitely subjected to land acquisition act.

It depends on the profile of your investment. Are you looking at long term investment or interested in quick returns?

There are various type of investments one can look at so if it is possible, let me know your profile type for me to advise better.

Hi Tan

Generally leasehold properties are more affordable while freehold properties are more resilient in price.

Leasehold properties are generally in better locations eg, beside MRT stations.

So it boils down to what is the purpose of your investment.

I have attached a link here, you can get more information from this article.

Hope this helps!

If you have further questions, pls feel free to contact me.

Dear Tan,

Freehold and leasehold of 999-years are of similar value, thus I would differentiate between freehold/999-yr lease versus 99-year lease instead of just freehold versus leasehold.

If given a choice between Freehold/999yr and 99-yr, the former will always be more valuable, assuming all other conditions are almost similar.

A real-life example would be Southhaven I & II, both very similar in style and located side-by-side. The 99-year Southhaven I trails its 999-yr counterpart Southhaven II by an increasingly widening margin.

I've written an article about this subject on my blog, do have a read and feel free to share your comments!
