    Noob questions on property

    Starting a thread for noob questions you always wanted to ask, but didn't dare to or didn't know how to. Let me start the ball rolling. Why does property appreciate? Does it not experience wear and tear like any other material possession? Is it because of demand vs supply and inflation?
  4. Hi all, Needed some advices as me and my wife couldn't decide which way to go. I shall tell my story in point form. 1. Currently living in a 5 room flat in woodlands. 2. Bank loan left 8 years to clear about $52K. 3. Applied for a 4 room BTO flat and was lucky enough to have slected a flat next to Bedok Mall and opposite Bedok MRT. 4. We had paid the the $2k option fee. 5. Pending to pay $52k(10% downpayment) + $15k(3% stamp fee). These 13% going to cost us about $67K. 6. We have $50k cash on hand. Another $15k from my wife CPF. 7. Wife just became PR 2 years ago. Therefore her CPF OA was little. 8. My CPF OA was used to service the bank loan of our current flat. 9. The amount was just enough to service the monthly loan. 10. New BTO flat in Bedok TOP 2021. 11. Selling our current Woodlands flat in 2021 need to pay HDB $50k levy. 12. Expected bank loan left around $30k in 2021. 13. I am using a safe amount to calculate. Let's say we only managed to sell our Woodlands flat for $400k in 2021. Minus levy and leftover bank loan. we can get back $320k from our Woodlands flat. 14. I knew out of the $320k that i get back. About half need to goes back to my CPF OA. But these money that went back to CPF OA will be used to pay for our New Bedok flat in 2021. 15. New flat left $470k after the downpayment. HDB able to grant us about $150k loan. 16. Therefore we have no problem for the new flat. We only need to save another $50k - $70k to renovate our new flat in 2021. Option 1 1. Thinking of investing our $50k cash on hand on oversea property. Wife is from china Hainan Dao. 2. We are thinking of buying a small condo unit about 40 square meter that cost about 400k - 500k RMB. 3. Why small unit? We only have $50k SGD on hand. Plus small unit maybe easier to rent out to single professional. 4. Downpayment needed about 30%. Therefore downpayment for an average 40 square meter condo unit about 120k - 150k RMB which is about $24k - $30k SGD. Option 2 1. Shall we go ahead with the Bedok BTO flat? (We like the location very much as it is next to Bedok Mall and opposite Bedok MRT). Capital gain from the new flat will be much better as compare to other flat that is not near to mall and mrt. OPtion 3 1. Apply for another 4 room BTO in other location which cost around 280K. I believe after selling our current 5 room flat in Woodlands. We should have enough cash for other investment. Hope that the expert here will give us some advises. Thanks in advance!

  19. Tudou IPO soon, says CEO 15 Sept 2010 Today SHANGHAI - Tudou.com, China's second-largest online video website, plans an initial public offering soon to raise funds to compete against market leader Youku.com in the world's biggest Internet market. "It's something that's inevitable. It should happen fairly soon. I can't talk about specifics," chief executive Gary Wang, the 37-year-old founder of Shanghai-based Tudou, said of a possible IPO in an interview yesterday. Tudou will sell shares in a "Western market," he said on Bloomberg TV, without elaborating. Tudou and Youku both have said they must invest in bandwidth to broadcast videos and in copyright for professional content that the companies say makes up about 70 per cent of their sites. Youku commands about 18 per cent of China's online-video market, while Tudou has about 13 per cent, according to a survey published by Analysys International, a Beijing-based research firm. "Youku and Tudou share a similar strategic layout and operation mode," according to the Sept 9 Analysys report. While both offer user-generated content, they are also "purchasing film copyrights actively so as to widen the gap with other independent online-video websites," the report said. Tudou started its website in 2005 and has raised US$135 million ($177 million through five rounds of funding, including US$50 million last month, of which US$35 million came from Singapore's Temasek Holdings. Tudou's vice-president for marketing and business development, Ms Anita Huang, told MediaCorp last month when it raised funds from Temasek that it would use the investment to woo more Chinese mobile phone owners to its portal. China has 420 million Internet users, of which at least 277 million access the Internet with their mobile phones.

    How come Tamasick don't invest in EPL?

    SINGAPORE - The investment group linked to a multi-million pound takeover of Newcastle United has refused to comment on reports of the bid which would turn the Championship side into a Barcelona-style trust. "We are aware of the reports but we have no comment at the moment," John Gaunt, Chief Executive Officer, Profitable Group, told Reuters when contacted at his Singapore headquarters on Wednesday. The investment group had contacted advisor Seymour Pierce to conduct the sale, the Financial Times reported. Former Liverpool and England midfielder Steve McMahon is on the board of Profitable, which told the Newcastle Evening Chronicle that it had spoken to Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley and was putting together a plan. Ashley officially put the recently relegated club up for sale on Monday for 100 million pounds. The Evening Chronicle reported on Tuesday it had seen the company's initial blueprint for a takeover and that a source had outlined some of the groups plans including: * Turning the club into a trust where fans have a major say * Increasing St James' Park capacity from 52,000 to 60,000 * Retaining Alan Shearer as manager Profitable Group is the company behind Liverpool's visit to Southeast Asia next month. The Premier League giants will play games in Bangkok and Singapore during the tour. According to its website, the Profitable Group "exists to increase the wealth of its clients, its employees and its owners, through the provision of strategically selected investment opportunities". The group says its aim is "to be internationally recognised as a premier provider of strategic global investment and a responsible and ethical builder of wealth". McMahon is not the only football connection the investment group boasts. Former Celtic, Liverpool and Scotland striker Kenny Dalglish is listed as UK Operations Advisor while ex-Birmingham City player Paul Masefield is listed as a Sponsorship Manager. Since they lost money...should now focus on other money making investment...
  22. Hi guys, Just wana have a rough sense who are the traders and who are the investors in this forum. Maybe we can share knowledge with one another to make more money. Also, who's still making good money from the stock market? I incurred a bad loss recently. Maybe I should just convert to investment than trading...
