Young professional with $50k saved in the bank. I'm from Australia and have moved to Singapore for work. I really want to get some extra income coming in and need advice?

I don't want to borrow any money from the bank but I was thinking of perhaps buying property in Australia. Any other ways I could make some extra income/investment?

Consider paying for an investment workshop on managing an options portfolio. You'll learn much faster and make less mistakes. Estimated returns you can get is 30% onwards a year.

Property is good as long as you have the money to pay the downpayment and the monthly instalments in an increasing interest rate environment. As long as you have the holding power in a property market downturn, you could consider buying property.

You'll have to make sure that you have at least 6 months of your salary saved as an emergency expense. Only invest anything above that.

I'd try and focus on getting side gigs or starting a small and nimble online business for extra income.

If not, you can set up a dividend paying portfolio or purchase some REITs or a share of a coupon paying bond.

Property is just too illiquid for my taste and rental income is not guaranteed.
