    Default Yesterday i visited my Ex-condo...

    Went for a bbq invited by one of my ex neighbour whose kid is my kids friend....

    After selling i have never gone back and never wanted to go back but no choice must give face...i saw my old place with mixed feelings...dunno happy or sad...i guess if after selling i had bought something i would be a bit happier but what to do sometimes we all think we are the smartest....

    Anyway just some sharing to other bros SELL only if you need to and MUST do for whatever reason...financial/depression..etc etc...cos once its GONE its GONE

    Thinking back to a year ago...maybe i should have rented out instead of selling...maybe i should have bought another after selling..maybe i should have moved back to my hdb after selling...MAYBE MAYBE MAYBE...one thing i learnt...money invested in a home is better than money in the bank...

    So bros this is MY experience just to share with others who might be going thru the same thing..
    In the final analysis.....its NOT whether you have a diploma,degree,masters OR PHD....its whether you have a HDB/PC/EC or LANDED...

    Bro Radha, it's a bit like ex-gf. Some you see 20 years later, you will thank heavens for causing the breakup. If like Vivian Chow, 20years later still so perfect, you will be very sian. Nonetheless sometimes it's just the makeup. Maintenance costs a fortune too. And I think we always regret what we give up to an extent. Just look forward and keep moving!

    Never sell a place u are staying. Home is not a investiment unless u can liquidate it. For stay is not stuitable to be considered ss investment.

    Thus hdb for stay n rent out. N then move backin to retire. Condo for temp stay n investment
