Is it a Wrong Time to buy Property now?
Me and my wife are like most of the Singaporean, we started with a HDB. And at that point of time, we work very hard because we only want to quickly clear off all my loans to be debt free. But I realise one thing, by doing this, I will only be trading off all my time and need to work very hard for the money.
I'm glad to have many opportunities in my real estate career to learn from all my investors and mentors on how can I effectively build my property portfolio with a safe and systematic way. We manage to own Two private properties at the age of 34.
I can totally understand that buying at a wrong time is so dangerous as we had seen so many home owners lost millions of dollars when they bought their property at the high.
I think before we give a yes or no, is always better to look into information first
I had generated the property trend in 1996 - 1997 for you to see, and this is very clear, that was one of the highest points in the property market. And if anyone were to enter at that point, many had lost money.
At that point of time, many were panicking and fearful. This is because, every investment instrument was affected, including real estate.
But having to say that, I found out that there are also numbers of successful purchase during this crisis that did extremely well too. Take a look at what I had found:
Let's fast track to 2013. ( in my last article, i had analysis what happened from 2003-2008, you may check out here) i had also explained what happened in 2013. As the property trend had shown, 2013 is another high in singapore.
Let's look at some data on people who took action to purchase their property at this point of time:
As you can see, these people are still exiting without a lost from their investment even though they bought in 2013.
In my conclusion, how are these property's owners still can profit even if they enter at the high? Because, in real estate, the high has been always higher than the previous high, no one can really time the market. Many have missed the boat when they try to time the market, I think most important is not to time the market, but to spot the right product, therefore you can still profit it no matter when you enter.
Many had told me that this time is different from last time, as last time prices are cheaper than this time. I totally agree. But I also realise that many times, no matter at which era, people will always compare with last time, because property are not cheap no matter at which time, it has only become cheaper when we look back after the price increase, do you agree? I'm confident, in year 2030, people will start saying that prices are much cheaper in 2020.
There is an opportunity in every crisis and the deeper the crisis, the better the opportunity can be. But some people are not capable of seeing it.
