In time , as prices become unaffordable , hopefully , property prices would drop slightly.

It means that they have to buy within their means (ie, a cheaper home), which is not a bad thing.

Not if cash-rich FTs keep pouring into the country. That's the root cause, isn't it?

I think this is a fair move by MAS.

 

Banks should have kept it to 30 years in anycase.

I think the CM affects older people the most. 30 years is already a long time lah. But if you are older, then the number of years is even less.

 

Example, 40 year old can only borrow 25 years.

 

I think it makes sense. This will cap the amount of money people can borrow and speculate. I think this CM is really good. Current problem is super low interest rates and banks are very irresponsible in exploiting this by introducing 50 year loan, etc.

 

That will make the monthly payment seem very little and encourage people to take bigger loans than they can safely afford. A few years down the road when the interest rates go up, these people will all die because they are used to the low monthly payment. By restricting the loan period, it prevents people from taking excessive loans.
