Since you are the only one working and has unstable income, it is best you are conservative. Can you guarantee you still have a job tomorrow? Will you be the next victim of retrenchments? What if your income goes from $200k pa to zero?

So it is best you just buy a 4 room HDB flat and pay it in full. So that you don't have to worry about a place to stay. Keep the rest of your wealth in cash as you have two small kids and wife to feed. If you lose your job, at least you have cash to feed them.

To retire, when your kids move out, you can rent out your rooms to FTs. You can also ask your kids to give you monthly allowance of $1000 from each kid.

You should buy a hdb flat and pay in full. Then get a new car. Women will come to you immediately.

5 room HDB flat $450k
New car $120k
Total cost $570k
You can use your cash, stocks and CPF to pay for your flat and car

Just curious, why are you single? Not interested in women or other reasons?

Looking at your income and assets, you are not poor, I'm sure there are women out there who would be interested if you are.

Any ladies here interested, feel free to PM, LOL.

not poor but probably average for degree holder.

based on my observation among peers and social circle, to be considered above-average your net worth and income should be about double of your current level

Yeah I agree. Most of my friends got married soon after graduation in 2002. Managed to buy property at rock bottom prices. This fact alone has put many of my peers way ahead of me.

Breakdown of our net worth:

1. 5 room HDB flat, now worth $650k. Loan left $150k. Net equity of home $500k.
2. CPF combined $400k.
3. Cash $100k.
4. Car $50k.

Total $1.05m.

We are a millionaire couple, 40 & 44 years old. I think we are among the top 5% in terms of net worth among our age group peers. How about you?
