    A culmination of three things. Greed, fear and extreme liquidity.

    I was told, stocks go up, means property will go down?

    so what's there to rejoice in a property forum?

    My projection is next year big units rental will most likely be hit as expats pay packages are cut further and there are more restriction in bringing in family.

    However prices will continue to creep upwards. Record prices for:

    (a) FH/999LH properties
    (b) New 99LH near MRT
    (c) New EC
    (d) HDB resale
    (e) COE
    (f) Food at your hawker centers
    (g) Public transport

    We are in an era of stagflation.

    "The relationship between stock prices and real estate prices has been the subject of substantial debate in both the academic and practitioner literatures. Existing studies have focused on the time series of stock and real estate returns using data from a single country, such as the U.S. By necessity, these studies examine return and price changes over short intervals, creating a bias when property values are smoothed from year to year. Using data from 17 different countries over 14 years, this paper examines the relation between stock returns and changes in property values and rents. Consistent with other country-specific studies, we find that, with the exception of Japan, the contemporaneous relation between yearly real estate price changes and stock returns is not statistically significant. However, when the data are pooled across countries and when we look at longer measurement intervals, a significant relation between stock returns and both rents and value changes becomes apparent. Real estate prices are also found to be significantly influenced by GDP growth rates and provide a good long-term hedge against inflation but a poor year-to-year hedge."

    Usually property will lag the stock market. Those ppl who made money in shares will want to leverage and put down deposit for property.

    I notice bank shares in other countries are also up.

    eg HSBC, Barclays (UK market).

    I believe it is due to QE infinity. I cant imagine prices in 2015. We might think 2012 prices were cheap.

    My other half made money fr stocks in 2007, threw it into a condo near the Redhill MRT. The owners at that time who had bought direct from the developers were trying to offload as they had just gone through a bad patch of the cycle.

    My parents have been buying OCBC and UOB shares regularly throughout their retirement (and before that). Every year or when there is a significant down turn they buy more. Those shares seem to have preserved their value and have provided them with a comfortable retirement income.

    If you have a diversified portfolio, it can be quite stable and increase steadily over time provided you reinvest the dividends. But you have to choose your shares prudently.

    Now you are older and wiser.

    Consider it expensive tuition fee.

    have you bought your 2nd pot yet? If waiting too long, it becomes more expensive and your remaining tenor on your loan is also ticking down.

    Assuming the crash occurred in end 2008 was the one that wiped out your 1st pot of gold, and you were 30 years old, it means that you are around mid-30s now. If a MM now costs around $600k, your 2nd pot of gold must reach $120k at least. I think it is better to find a partner to settle down and combine the fire-power to be safer.
