IMO, those who own and live in a HDB flat and buy a private property (second property) to rent out is still considered mid middle class. If they don't have tenant to pay for the mortgage, they will likely not able to finance the mortgage comfortably. In a crisis, there will be no tenants and rents will plunge. This group will panic and will need to sell their investment property urgently. Fire sale. Property prices will then crash. This group is the weakest link among private property owners.

You need to own a private property and live in it to be upper middle class. The top 20% own and live in a private property.
You pin-pointed it right on point...
But once again, why do we really bothered about what class you are, most importantly live happily. There are some folks have 3-4 properties but always researching alot, viewing property/selling, renovate, etc, it cause alot of unwanted stress unless that person really love it alot, which i highly doubt so.
