For 2019,
how do you think it's going to be? Exciting year, tough year? I have a lot of
customers telling me their prediction.
So what do you predict? From my case, I mean looking at Trump and China,
I am a bit afraid of the economy honestly,
but I guess Singapore property, the uniqueness is that if your property is close to
MRT,
There is always a demand whether
is it for rental or whether is it for sales, there will still be people looking to buy
and people looking to rent
but I will say maybe the ones that are badly affected will be your high-end condos
because these are the higher end quantum that maybe only the foreigners, the
rich foreigners, they can maybe afford to buy. Where as more
for the locals they would tend to think about the maybe the price of the property
and also whether can their families move in together with them.
So I think for the locals they are a bit stringent
right now because of the recent cooling measures,
they can't own the second property.
They may as well have to sell their existing first property before they purchase another property.
So I guess there will always be transactions
in the market it is just that maybe it would be sluggish
for this first half of the year
and we are not very sure about the government next step towards the economy
and whether would they really loosen up the stamp duty, I doubt so,
but hopefully there's a miracle maybe the government can do some changes to the policy.
Ok,
So I think my personal view is that I think at this point,
I don't think any cooling measures will be removed.
Of course,
you know,
Partly because prices are still at quite an all-time high. You look at the recently transacted
Even those en-blocs that did go through,
Yeah,
the psf ppr is very high,
Yeah,
and I think if we were to remove all this cooling measures,
I think the market will start to heat up again.
So I personally feel it was quite good that there were some measures in place,
although they could be tweaked such that it's not penalising to some segments of the market. I agree.
