    Default I feel very uneasy market is still moving UP...

    The property market is showing NO sign of easing....EC being snapped up...bto selling out...new launch flying off the shelf...something is going to happen...this time i think will be a major CM...
    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...

    I guess the following reasons might cause the ppty market keeps going up.
    1) scared more cm to stop them from buying, so everybody is rushing for it.
    2) huge profit from the sale of their HDB flats
    3) enbloc profit

    What else can you all think of?

    Today I was in Orchard.
    There were so many foreigners.
    I don't know whether to be happy or sad.
    Happy cos economy is doing well, and foreigners spend money in our country and rent from us.
    Sad cos Orchard Road is no longer the Orchard Rd of Singapore I know of.

    I decided that I shall not go to Orchard Rd if I can but remain in the heartlands.

    The MRT was super crowded.
    The journey from Dhoby Ghaut to Sommerset was a torture as people pushed to get in and were standing shoulder to shoulder.
    No wonder we would rather slog and pay for COEs which cost on the average 2 years of salary, than to squeeze on the trains.

    Yup, it is supposed to be crowded.
    But Orchard Road is now foreign to me.
    I don't feel at home there anymore.
    I wonder what will foreigners visiting Singapore think of Singapore when they visit Orchard Rd?
    I feel it is no longer representative of Singapore.

    Last week I was walking on the street outside Ion, and saw a group of foreigners doing folk dances (or whatever u call it). They were making a lot of noise and were enjoying themselves with the attention showered on them by the public. I was wondering then if the tourists who happen to walk past would mistaken them as locals? Definitely they don't represent us Singaporeans ....

    4) CASH put in banks losing value very quickly, better exchange into hard assets (eg property) that govt cannot "Print" hence won't lose value (not even considering the potential appreciation in value!).

    frankly sporean got no more identity...the only identity people have is the type of house you stay and the kind of car u drive...so that is why COE sky high and house price sky high....

    I just got back from a trip To KL...spend a few days there at my cousin place....life is TOTALLY different...life there also in a MESS....BIG house BIG car but NO security....

    1) INFLATION...labour cost is going up and up and up, material cost is also going up and up and up, land cost also up and up and up.

    2) INVESTMENT...No where to put their money. ( very low interest rate for deposit of 0.5% vs inflation 5% ) ten times different.

    3) POPULATION... need to house more than 6 million population in future.

    NO CHOICE BUT TO BUY NOW !!!!

    which is the scarier situation? [scenario 1] Orchard Road dilapidated - all shops shut down due to lack of shoppers [scenario 2] Orchard Road crowded and bustling with life.

    I was also there this evening. Agree so long queue just to get in from Dhoby Ghaut MRT, waited 3 rounds just to squeeze in. And alamak, so squeezy that I cannot use my phone to surf condoforum!

    Our train carriages are undersized and too few cars. Just compare HK and Taipei you can see the big difference.

    Data doesn't say going up very fast leh.... Last data says go up approx 1% a month. Quite reasonable what....

    Credit Suisse says 8% till 2017... Where got fast...

    With inflation not far behind, it's manageable.

    I'll be very happy if it Cheong faster , but its not... Perhaps it's the headlines that is giving the perception.
