The additional non-residents except the domestic workers would also need to rent rooms and houses. These stats do not suggest a coming scenario of ghost condos. Perhaps higher vacancy rates, but swathes of empty condos, unlikely.
Read the news carefully. Expect more ghost condos around. We have a serious problem. Unless we reverse the foreign labour policy, prices and rents will collapse.
