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.

Would like to see a similar article focused on HDBs. Plenty of 40-50 year old HDBs on the market still.

Hi Gad, thank you for your feedback 🙂 Is there any focus on HDBs you’d like us to touch on? Due to regulations, there’re fewer reasons why one would purchase an HDB flat aside from living in them, and it’s geared towards older folks.

Possible to see different types of investment strategies? This one on older properties is interesting but I wonder what other plays there are. What about for commercial properties too?

Hi Cliff. In a broad sense, we’ve highlighted the types of property investors at https://stackedhomes.com/editorial/exit-strategy/. As for commercial properties, this is something in our pipeline at the moment 🙂
