    Default Is property price finally comes down? Anyone went property investment talk?

    So the recent news on property price gives hope for lower price.
    Saw a number of property investment talks in newspaper.
    Anyone attended property investment talks on local and foreign properties and like to share experience?

    Take these talks with some salt. Folks giving these talks usually have their own interests to take care.....

    One word of advice: reconsider property investments in Vietnam.

    Check who is organizing these 'talks'. Who is paying the bill for the venue?
    They have to cover the bill by selling something. Whatever is offered on such venue is more likely something "must go" ...

    All Singaporeans believe one truth:

    Our house prices will go only one way: UP!

    That's because thanks to Indons and Malays we can't enlarge the Little Red Dot anymore.

    All house-owning Singaporeans are sitting on a gold mine.

    It is not confined to Vietnam. Look back and you know where you need to invest with lots of care. Go in and run out fast is the only way for some countries.

    As for Singapore, with limited land and inflation, property will always be a great investment till one day nobody is buying. Go up by 100% and down by 5%, everyone is saying cheap. Plot a 20 years graph, it will give you a better indication if it really has come down.

    My take is, take new HDB price as your base line, you can't be far if you are not paying way above your nose. Once HDB prices dropped, 85% of the people will be very angry. So far 85% are very happy. Hehe

    Those who did well in this sector, need not & would not give such talk. Those who need to organise & depend on such talk generally had not done well enough in the sector. Think about it.

    Please read the basic disclaimer when viewing all these graphs of development for stocks, bonds, funds:
    "Past performance is no indicator about future development and financial performance."
    As if it were so easy to predict the future from looking at a handful of charts ... Economy, weather and many other things on this planet are emergent systems: although we know the basic rules and factors we are unable to forecast the future development beyond a few days. It only needs a very few and sometimes very small items to become the spanner in the wheel.

    It's like in the casino where they show you the roulette table's last few numbers. People staring hard at it to derive a pattern - when in reality, each roll is an independent event that does not depend on the past.

    Yup. Those who organize, tend to be looking for private-REIT shareholders.

    Due to laws of Sg it is not acceptable for persons to solicit shareholders or sale of shares for non listed companies publicly.

    Not really. An ideal dice does not have a memory, each throw is independent. Our world does have a memory and knows about cause and effect.

    At least the graph provides you an indication how much it has risen over the pass few years and how much it comes down recently.

    Although property has been a great investment here in Singapore, it is not a good thing overall for the people. It just an inflation to many that own only 1 property

    Basic theory thought is how to use OPM.
    (Other Peoples Money)

    And they don't clearly explain to you the risks of using OPM (leverage)....
