3 Renowned People Who Live in Singapore

Many Singaporeans, both local and foreign, invest their own money to buy land in Singapore. With a small plot and increasing income, real estate is considered a safe investment with many sponsors. Of course, with high demand and low supply, it’s no wonder that real estate prices in Singapore are among the most expensive in the world.

The Singapore government regulates the purchase of land in the country and has strict rules for both locals and foreigners. Residents can purchase private and public apartments. Foreigners can only buy personal property, such as real estate.

Locals and foreigners who own more than one property pay buyer’s stamp duty (ABSD), but Singaporeans have a lower tax rate. For Singaporeans, ABSD is second with 17 percent, followed by 25 percent. For Singapore PR, ABSD is deducted on all asset purchases starting at 5% on the first asset, 25% on the second and 30% on future purchases. In other countries, the 30 percent ABSD rate applies to all types of land purchases. With a starting price of around $600,000 for a small home, ABSD can be high.

In recent years, especially in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, foreigners have increasingly bought land as an investment in Singapore. Today, real estate prices in Singapore have skyrocketed, making it a worthwhile investment.
