2) Is it advisable to keep the current unit and instead, buy another condo for investment?

In either case, I think that my CPF would be wiped out right??
Considering that your cash position is quite low, I would go for (1). Your CPF OA will be "topped up" when you sell, and "wiped out" when you buy. But I heard you can buy unit trusts with OA during the transition period and then sell the unit trusts after you have made the purchase, so your OA will still have some money.

But anyway, here it is;
31 year old female, married
5-rm HDB valued at S$440,000 (sharing with hubby, fully paid)
1.5L Car (fully paid)
CPF - $0 (used up to clear HDB mortgage)
Savings (cash and stocks) - S$50,000
No outstanding loans or debts

I used to have much more savings but my savings were almost wiped out to pay for my wedding, honeymoon, car, house renovation, furnitures etc etc about 1 year ago. I also have to give parents.

I am currently saving up from scratch at a rate of S$2800 per month consistently in the form of cash, insurance and unit trust/shares. I am not sure when I can achieve what you guys out there have achieved. I am feeling so sad now.

Based on my current networth (if any) and savings, please advise me if I can ever dream of a retirement at all. Thanks.
Hi Bee,

I think you are doing fine. You have a flat, a car and the most important thing is that you do not have any debt. Your saving of $2.8k per month may be modest but if you can continue to save that amount till you retire, it would have accumulated quite a significant amount for retirement. Without debt you have less fear, and that is an important factor when you make decisions on financial matters, like investments. Build up your wealth through consistent savings, and smart investments. A down to earth approach guarantees lower risks and higher success rate.

Some people have weird reason about taking advantage of the HPIS insurance. And including the death of their spouse as part of their financial planning is not really a good idea, at least that's how I look at it. I think you have done quite well so far, assuming you are in the middle income group.

Since you are sitting on profits now and need the money, sell now. Don't be greedy. You never know what's going to happen tomorrow. Share prices are dropping now as we speak.

Why so little cash? If you are a high income earner, I suppose you spend a large portion of your monthly earnings? Or are you a business owner, with irregular income?
