Weathering A Property Downturn : Weathering A Property Downturn
Ku Swee Yong’s Real Estate Riches, Building Your Real Estate Riches and Real Estate Realities have become a valuable resource for property investors in Singapore during the past few years. In his new book, he takes stock of the prolonged downturn and weak market conditions and offers useful defensive strategies in the face of supply gluts and weakening prices. The lead article warns of potential risks arising from an extremely high rate of home ownership in Singapore, followed by frank insights into various local property segments. The book also includes illuminating coverage on some regional markets which he recommends investors to look into. Backed by solid research and astute observations, Weathering A Property Market Downturn is a sobering read that portends a scenario where massive supply overhangs will drive prices markedly down. Addressing current issues faced by property investors through a collection of articles previously published in Today, The Business Times and The Edge, he offers qualified and invaluable observations on public and private properties, mixed developments, luxury estates and overseas properties.
