This condo will be worth $1m now and you would have made at least $300-400K (after deducting for interest, stamp duty, other misc costs) from your $50K cash and $50K CPF. Few years ago, many shares including blue chips are selling below their NRV but many are too fearful to buy. Those who bought the shares then would have made at least a few folds by now.

I believe some of the stories and claims are true although I also find it rather increduous that there are so many millionaires contributing their success stories in this forum.



My sentiments exactly.well put.

Married, mid 30s.

200K stocks, 600K cash, 1.5M home value net of loan.

Comfortable but still far from being financially free
