    This may be a good time to start looking around and feeling the market. It looks hmmm.... more downwards but would not like to comment too much on that but factually Sellers are getting more accomodative.

    This market is an Investors Dream. Falling market wait for opportunist buy & Rising market time yourself for the Sale. However, the Singapore Market has not fallen significantly for the Landed Property Market although there are still some decent buys out there.

    Would really like to see the market six months down the road.

    Either way, as an Investor a falling market puts you in the right shoe to prepare for the timely purchase - then create value for the property ie beautify it, redevelop it, stay in it, rent it out ....... and wait to let it loose when the market turns and meets your target price.

    For Long Term Investors - Historically freehold property twenty years ago and the prices they command today says it all.

    yes, i do agree now it's the time to start looking around but the problem is the demand is relatively low, everyone is playing the wait and see attitude. only those who need cash urgently are willing to let go at this current market. if there is no demand, how to invest?

    As an Investor, there are some questions you would ask yourself - What would be, your feel of the purchasing value of the S$ in the ten years time? Would we be out of todays Financial Turmoil? Would our expenses be more than it is today? Would property be more expensive than what it is today? Then make an informed decision as to when is the right time to get in.

    Btw are we really going to have 6.5 million people in Singapore?

    One of the differences between an Investor and Speculator is that the former is Longer Term and the latter is short term or Flipper. I strongly believe that this may not be the best time to consider Flipping, my personal opinion.

    As an Investor the options are safer to buy, hold and create more value with your property or rent it out to help defray or sometimes even have a positive cash flow.

    Bearing all this in mind, the market seems softer, just time your purchase.

    a property investor should have a similar investment horizon to ride out any market vagaries so as to best enjoy rental and capital appreciation over time. Empirical evidence has shown that the longer the investment horizon, the greater the likelihood of making a profit, and higher profits at that.

    now is totally the right time to get into property. prices are rising fast and i think that they'll keep going up for awhile for some reason...if possible, buy if not, sell or rent
