Ryan is an old school print journalist gone digital. He's lived in almost every type of housing in Singapore, from flats to landed homes. Over the past 18 years, he's been a content developer for companies large and small, a co-founder in an education business, and sometimes a voice on the radio. He also spends too much time and money on painting little plastic soldiers.

You do realise that your copious amount of “advice” just further confuses people, right? Just buy the property you like, period. Let the rest take care of itself. Cheers, mate. Btw, yes! You don’t have to publish this comment 🙂

Just buy the property you like? Don’t think that is the right mindset for investment property.

I felt so much a kindred spirit reading through the article. It was as if a big brother giving advices of experiential knowledge that are some kind of rare gems which are hard to find, especially, in times of need. Thank you very much, Ryan for an unselfish sharing in this write-up of a precarious financial subject!

Hey! I wish it was as easy as “buy what you like” But yes in the end sometimes after doing all the analysis, you’ll have to “buy what you like” especially if it’s for own stay reasons and you have no better options.

I thoroughly appreciate all your content, intent, and narratives. Perhaps this is not the best article to drop this comment on but… you (or your editor) need to cull the word count. More than often (almost always) your articles are tiresome to read. Go Newpaper, not Economist (even the Economist makes a relevant and appropriate impact with each sentence).

Hi Jerome, appreciate the candid feedback. We’ve definitely a lot that we can still improve on. Just curious, could you let me know which piece you thought was one of the more succinct ones? Thanks!

I disagree. I’ve read a number of your articles and I very much like the way you take the time to outline and clarify each point in a layman way where it is easy to understand. I appreciate your articles very much and I wish I had known a lot of these info much earlier before investing.
