    Default Buying Attitude Index - Q1 2018

    Why this index?
    In Singapore, there is no official buyer-driven (not developer-driven) index to show Buyers' Attitude for residential properties. This forum is the best place to fill in that gap.

    How does it work?
    Everyone is entitled for one vote, the index is calculated by:
    the percentage of bulls - percentage of bears
    (Please vote even if you are neutral because it will change the overall percentage scores).

    Historical Numbers:

    Quarter, Votes, Index
    Q4 2012, 65, +12
    Q1 2013, 35, +6
    Q2 2013, 56, 0
    Q3, 2013, 59, -34
    Q4, 2013, 53, -45
    Q1, 2014, 45, -33
    Q2, 2014, 43, -44
    Q3, 2014, 48, -19
    Q4, 2014, 29, +14
    Q1, 2015, 29, +7
    Q2, 2015, 20, +15
    Q3, 2015, 16, +56
    Q4, 2015, 7, +28
    Q1, 2016, 12, +34
    Q2, 2016, 16, +32
    Q3, 2016, 16, +81
    Q4, 2016, 11, +64
    Q1, 2017, 14, +21
    Q2, 2017, 13, +77
    Q3, 2017, 15, +60
    Q4, 2017, 9, +78

    (The max of the index is 100, the minimum of the index is -100)

    News reports say we should expect 8% price increase for Year 2018. But do we have black swans ahead?
    Your vote will give us a hint.

    Thanks,
    Richard

    Number of votes: 4, index +100

    If we continue to get less than 10 votes, I guess the wise choice would be to stop the index.

    Cheers!

    in Q4 2015, u also had a < 10 votes but no. of votes recovered after that. with the news going around, +100 is to be expected in the short term.
