    That ah pek agent is not testing water, he is making people nervous and wants them to place a deposit. This is one of the common tactics. One way to bring down the house price is to examine the house and point out all the faults especially those lightings and stuffs in toilets.

    How old is the flat? if it is around 30 years, don't bother. The renovation will cost you a big bomb unless you do not have to renovate.

    haiz... guess better buy BTO.. Far and got to wait 4yrs.

    Agent greedy...... take 2% from seller and also want 1% from buyer. If they deal with buyer directly, buyer have to pay the agent 1% for agency fee. Greedy..

    ??? why if new also not cheap lar?

    does it mean if resale considered cheap?

    Like people saying selling 24-70mm lens at $2k. If brand new $2k too expensive. But if used, $2k is a good price

    Man, you are confused.. So far, HDB flat do not drop in value. At least so far I gathered.

    The way gahment priced the new flat are using price of resale flat in the region and apply some discount. So, new flat will always be cheaper that surrounding resale flat.

    Yes, it's a good idea to go for BTO, but keep a lookout of what's happening during this time. Who knows, there may be a crash, and you can go into the market even before you get your BTO unit.

    That's why I said, if time is on your side, then it's always good to hold the horse. All price that goes up will ultimately come down.

    That's why price can only go up. If people buy at that price, they will just hold until they can get above that price and make a profit before selling. Most Singaporeans are not overcommitted thus can afford to wait, and I felt the economic downturn here wasn't enough to push the prices down. Few people forced to sell, others just hold it out, unlike in some of our neighbouring countries.

    Shanghai, everyone been speculating about bubble bursting for so long until old news already. You'd expect the situation to be much much worse there... but sale is just slowing down. Looks like there are still people buying and selling.

    HDB prices climbed 3.8% in Q2. Biting now, or later?

    Don't worry too much about it; by that time, all the policies would have changed already

    I'm sure during our parent's time, they never thought they'd have to cough up 30k COV for us also.

    Can't cough up? You can always wait a couple of years. Yeah, I had to sort out the 5k when I didn't marry the person I thought I would 15 years ago also.
