Hi

If you own the property in Singapore, Don't dare to sell it. In Singapore properties are getting expensive and expensive day by day, because we have a shortage of land. Try to invest your income from rent in Stocks, Nowadays you can buy amazing stocks at the cheapest rate.

If it is freehold, just leave it and collect rental. If it is leasehold, you may want to sell it at a good price and buy another property as long as you have the money to pay the downpayment and the monthly instalments.

1) Is the property paid up in full or are your parents still paying the mortgage? If it is paid up in full, the rental collected is passive income which can be put towards other investments. If mortgage is still being serviced, then we need to work through the numbers to see if makes sense to hold on to it or liquidate it.

2) What are your parents plans in the next 5-10 years? While there may not be an immediate use for the proceeds from selling the property, your parents need to be more forward thinking when talking about "investing" the excess cash, simply because when you talk about investing, there is always a minimum timeframe that the money should be left untouched.

  1. Since money no need for immediate use, then what plans is there for the excess cash?

  2. Will you be able to find any other investments to generate returns on this excess cash and without losing this pot of gold?

  3. Rental collection is good long term income, once the mortage is all paid.

  4. Need to buy another property to stay? Or downgrade? If so, then must consider now property price going up, buying another property to stay may not be so cheap.​​​
