Post What is the best way to grow your net worth?

Any ideas? Many people have become richer after buying properties and some may have owned multiple properties in their portfolio. I havent seen any growth like the property market which is fueled by rather strong demand.

Property is one of the ways to increase one's net worth but the thing about investing in property especially in singapore, is that it is a long term investment in which you would only see profits after a substantial amount of time. And given that property prices in SG are at an all time high right now, the potential of the property market bubble bursting is very real. At the end of the day, you may end up with only 1/2 of your initial investment. Next, do you have that large amount of liquidity to invest in property? Personally, i would say look at shorter term investments like unit trusts, bonds, shares. Go speak to one of the personal finance managers from one of the local banks like POSB, UOB, OCBC and discuss your investment portfolio.

not true bro.. should it even crash so badly.. you value of property goes down.. but you can still rent out the property. thats the difference between properties in comparision to stocks. although you can say stocks give u dividends. but well no where as good normally as a yield in investment in property ,espeically for Singapores case, whereby demand is always strong for property, and furthermore, of these demands, they are very rich pple from China , Indo and other places of the world, well even should prices shoot up 30% , they will still continue to buy that property and relocate here. and lets say should the property market crash ,and drop 30% instead, these pple will know its sooo cheap.. they will buy 2 units instead of 1 ... Bad economy will impact their confidence and financial position, but we can never underestimate the background and money of these pple.. I have many contacts with real estate agents so I think i managed to get some so called "insider info".. Property is much safer , lower risk.. and with the ability to rent it out .. its the deal man .

It depends. Most people buy properties with borrowed funds and is highly leveraged. In other words, the worst case is not losing your full investment; it is getting into negative equity where your property is worth less than your debt (bank loan). Therefore it is more risky than stocks if you buy your property at a high and with borrowed funds.

so easy ah? short term trading is very much like gambling. how much have you made already? the fact that you are still surfing this forum speaks much about your income level (not to mention the things you posted in other threads...)

1. Be lucky.
2. Get lucky.

10. Pray hard.
11. Marry into a rich family.

50. Study hard (the only thing you can control).
51. Lose money initially.

In terms of asset classes, depends on the times. They said US stocks outperform in the long run, but during the last 30 years, government bonds actually outperformed, meaning taking all those so called risks does not always pay.
