INVEST IN REAL PROPERTIES
Most alternative investment assets are usually held by institutional investors or accredited, high-net-worth individuals due to the complexity of these products. These alternative investment products include commodities, structured products, derivatives, hedge funds, art, and real estate.
In Singapore, real estate is a major asset class that is popular, and is available to most Singapore citizens and foreigners (under the FTA, citizens of Switzerland, USA, Liechtenstein, Iceland and Norway enjoy similar Seller's Stamp Duties / Buyer's Stamp Duties treatments as Singaporeans pertaining to real estate transactions). Foreigners are able to purchase condomiums in general with little restrictions, and landed properties (with approval from LDAU) at Sentosa Cove. Most landed properties are not available for purchase by foreigners. Foreigners are able to purchase industrial and commercial properties in Singapore with little restrictions and tax impact.
Laws and regulations pertaining to real estate transactions are constantly changing (often within months), and can often have great monetary impact on a BUYER or SELLER. The government agency, Singapore Land Authority (SLA), controls the supply of land for property development by developers.
As real estate is real property and has a higher price/investment entry level, it is important that the investor is well-equipped with the necessary market, financial, and legal knowledge for asset protection, and avoid complications which may be result in penalties. It is therefore advisable that a real estate investor seeks professional legal advice, financial advice, and the professional services of a licensed real estate salesperson prior to a real estate transaction in Singapore.
Most savvy & accredited investors invest in high-end residential, commercial or industrial properties for inflation-hedging, income-generation, and potential asset appreciation.
