Investing in Real Estate - Singapore
In Singapore, real estate is a major asset class that is popular, and is available to most Singapore citizens and foreigners (under the FTA, citizens of Switzerland, USA, Liechtenstein, Iceland and Norway enjoy similar Seller's Stamp Duties / Buyer's Stamp Duties treatments as Singaporeans pertaining to real estate transactions). Foreigners are able to purchase condomiums in general with little restrictions, and landed properties (with approval from LDAU) at Sentosa Cove. Most landed properties are not available for purchase by foreigners. Foreigners are able to purchase industrial and commercial properties in Singapore with little restrictions and tax impact.
Laws and regulations pertaining to real estate transactions are constantly changing, and can often have great monetary impact on a BUYER or SELLER. The government agency, Singapore Land Authority (SLA), controls the supply of land for property development by developers.
As real estate is real property and has a higher price/investment-entry level, it is important that the investor is well-equipped with the necessary market, financial, and legal knowledge for asset protection, and avoid complications which may result in penalties. Investing in a real property is actually investing in a highly-leveraged asset class when it is done via mortgage / bank loan. It is therefore advisable that a real estate investor seeks professional legal advice, financial advice, and engage the professional services of a licensed real estate salesperson prior to a real estate transaction in Singapore. Only CEA-registered real estate agents / brokers are legally allowed to do property transactions in Singapore. Real estate agents' commissions for a property transaction are not fixed and are subject to negotiation; these commissions are usually paid by the developers / landlords / owners.
Most savvy and accredited investors as property owners invest in high-end residential properties, commercial or industrial properties for inflation-hedging, income-generation and potential asset appreciation.
