well, many want to live within their means too, but getting a new flat is so damn difficult....resale even if its some ulu places are fetching prices beyond many ppl...
but some areas not so ulu.. prices are reasonable compared to the crazy areas.

the crazy areas scare me. :cry: not that i would want to live in toa payoh or bishan anyways.. just not used to the central/north area. east for life!

my advice is start planning and look for a flat once u r back be it resale or BTO... :bsmilie:

dun be like me, about the get married then search high and low... my daughter is due soon and im still waiting for my flat to be build... :confused: by the time i move into my very own flat, i probably have 2 kids already :(

not really working. lots of ppl getting married just because they are at the age to get a house and get married. and the first purpose is bigger than the 2nd one :bsmilie:

It's all in your brain whether you can afford
anything from a roof over your head or a
diamond ring.

Worldly wisdom and property won't last.
Live by the day and live in a simple way.

Peer pressure can kill, just go and get
a backup plan and when your future spouse
don't see your way, you have to make
the right decision or go with the wrong choice.

Consider all options and not fall for
temporary luxury because your resources
can run out. Beware!

when i was younger and single, open market price was much affordable.
when i am eligible and still single, price was insanely high

bear in mind that as a singaporean's single, you don't get much benefit / incentive when comes to having a roof over our head..
