    Default New CM = Mai Tu Liao

    After talking for a few people about this, I think this new cooling measure might create some panic buying in the short term because potential buyers might be forced to rush in to take up mortgage loan because of their age.

    They may rush in in fear of more CMs but not because of their advancing age. Afterall, a year later not going to make much difference in loan installments. But i am sure resale transactions will decline and prices may go up simply because of the reduced supply.

    Agreed regarding 1 year will not make much difference.

    However, could be panic sellers lower price as less buyers can buy.

    Its very hard to say. Those who have already own property, will not sell because they are unable to get 35 years financing due to their age, unless they got a good offer.

    Also for someone in their 40s or 50s, who is looking for investment property, 1 or 2 years difference is going to cost them a few hundred dollar difference.

    Assuming a 50 years old looking to take up a $1m loan for 15 years. the difference between 14 and 15 years loan at 1.2% is around $500 per month difference. For someone looking for passive income, or cash flow $500 could mean positive or negative cash flow.

    The headlines below might restrain people from buying now.

    Heard many companies are not renewing their contract staff or retrenching them. Many manufacturing plants are operating lesser days. This CM is to deter the older investors from their planned purchases in case the economy get worst which is a likely case.

    Singapore likely in recession on expected Q3 GDP drop

    print |email this article


    SINGAPORE - Singapore's economy probably contracted further in the third quarter because of poor demand for its manufacturing exports, tipping the island into a recession and reinforcing expectations of policy easing by the central bank at its meeting next Friday.
    Gross domestic product likely shrank by 1.8 per cent in July-September, worsening from the 0.7 per cent quarter-on-quarter seasonally adjusted and annualised drop in April-June, according to a median estimate of 12 economists polled by Reuters.
    From a year ago, the economy probably grew by 1.0 per cent, slower than the second quarter's 2.0 per cent expansion, reflecting the impact of the slowdown in the big export markets of Europe, United States and China on the trade-reliant city-state.
    Advance estimates for third quarter gross domestic product will be released at 8:00 am local time (0000 GMT) on Friday, at the same time the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) issues its half-year monetary policy statement.

    A slowing economy might be the best CM.

    when you invest in a property in Singapore you will need to have a long term view because of the SSD and ABSD. So those seasoned investor will not let all these "noise" on GDP to affect your long term plan.

    What you need to do however is to ensure that your investment property can generate a good enough yield so that it can buffer the shock if economy go south. having said that, I always tell people that, dont ever believe what the agent tell you about rental yield for BUC project. If you want rental yield, buy completed project.

    Does this apply to a country which import most of her resources. The world is growing but this poor country is not growing which leads to stagflation. ??

    whatever the permutations, it is painful to be in a rising price environment with no income growth.

    I don't understand your logic.... if you are 50 years old, there is more chance that the new CM will stop you from buying. Before this CM, your plans are probably like 20/25 year loans. Now all of a sudden it is 15 year loans. The net effect for 50 plus people is definitely less buyers because it effectively removed a lot of potential old buyers

    It is not about price, but cost of funding and returns.
