Renting a place doesn’t mean you don’t scrub toilet bowls and pick hair off the drainage…

Hey Loh, we never said that renting a place doesn’t mean you don’t have to do these. In fact, the end of the article mentions how Adrian also does these things when renting

Lishan’s point about renting being cheaper across 99 years isn’t valid if you bring capital appreciation into the picture; not to mention that 800/mth in current market probably gets you a common room in far flung places like Pasir Ris or Jurong West.

If she was able to buy a place of her own she’d jump on it right away.

This really depends on what you value I suppose. Capital appreciation may not have been important to her. There’s also the down payment and stamp duties which would have to be paid upfront and may not have been suitable for her.
