Thank you Ryan for the unbiased editorial. Really so much more valuable than all the fluff and rahrah by those ‘gurus’/educators.

Thank you so much for your sharing. I attended a webinar on property investment and what you shared is exactly what the trainer was pushing ie. industrial properties, loans, rent to cover mortgage!

I’m guessing they also push you to “upgrade” or sell one’s HDB (since it made money already, so cash out) and then ask you to plough it into riskier properties – right?

Good article! Someone has to say something about all these “scaminars”. We all know which one you’re talking about. Funny how in the ads you mentioned, they keep mentioning Bala’s curve and lease decay for 99 year HDB properties, but didn’t mention that industrial properties have even shorter leases! Keep up the good work.
