Those who live in hdb - nobody
Those who live in condo - almost there
Those who live in a landed property - you've arrived and indeed a somebody. Only 5% of Singaporeans live in a landed property

Work harder to be a somebody in your life


I agree completely to this.

This is the best gauge of whether you've arrived in Singapore.

Nothing else can show your status than saying you live in a landed property.

Wish i can purchase a landed property one day in the future!

Those in the far west end of the island are quite cheap.

There are lots of landed houses under 2 mio. Do a search in propertyguru.

If you to propertyguru and do a search, there are landed estates in the Jurong area. These are the Corporation, Westwood and Pioneer estates. Corporation and Westwood estates are relatively newer. Prices are now about $1.5m - $2m for terraces. Prices are in an uptrend since the announcement in 2008 of the Jurong Lake District 2nd CBD plan. Many people and agents are predicting prices will go beyond $2m and above once the area is fully developed. Any price below $2m today is a bargain. I think about 20 units now selling below $2m.

I have worked for 5 years. Saving for downpayment to buy a resale HDB. After I buy the flat, after a few years, I can sell and buy a landed property if my career takes off. Looks like landed is the way to go for the top performing Singaporeans.
