for us, we dun have plans to shift that's why we go for EA.
dun really like to shift house, do renvo, go HDB for paper work etc.
some people like to shift house for "profits". we are just plain folks who just stay happy with our humble nest.
for us, we never think of buying Condo. firstly we can't afford. even we can afford, we think paying maintenance is not worth it. of cos i understand your case is ur combine salary exceed $8k, bo bian.
anyway, buying flat is a long term investment either to invest in money wise of satisfaction.
makret good today, doesn't mean market good tomorrow.
for example, jurong used to be unwanted place but now goverment is developing it. the rush is in bukit merah flats because its near town. but who knows one day if people find no incentitive to pay $400k for a 4 room flat, they might switch their attention to westen area.
all i can say, its a shared decision between my fiance and i to buy jurong west. wee will not point fingers at each other should anything goes wrong in future. for those criticism from relatives and friends, we simply shut them off.
