Dear President of the United States of America,
We’re sorry to hear you have cancelled your meeting with Kim Jong-Un in Singapore. Come to think of it, that meeting was always what you’d call a long shot (we call it “getting a decent BTO queue number”). It seemed that, like the property market here, what hothead Kim needed wasn’t dialogue but some serious cooling measures.
In Singapore, particularly in Mandarin Gardens, we know how hard it is to pull off something successfully. There’s this thing called en bloc, where condo owners band together to sell their property to the highest bidding developer (now that the local property market is red hot).
And there has been so much win.
In the first half of 2018, there have been no less than 31 en bloc deals. The developer with the next winning bid might just be you, President Trump. Over here, Chinese developers now have both feet in the collective sales game, and America must not lose out. So, forget trade wars and join the en bloc wars.
On a personal note, properties in Singapore is well worth considering; our data shows that freehold condominiums here have appreciated 151.24% in the last 15 years. (That’s way more appreciation than you have ever gotten.) Foreign individuals are also more than welcome to buy multiple private non-landed properties here: so that’s one for you, one for your wife, and another for your lawyer.
First and foremost, seeing that your Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida is stuck on a small strip of land wedged between the Atlantic Ocean and a lagoon — and currently endangered
by global warming, why not get an upgrade in the form of a condo at Tanjong Rhu? Besides the usual condo gym and pool, you can enjoy even more exercise facilities at the nearby Singapore Sports Hub (if you finally decide to listen to a qualified doctor).
Now here’s a good deal.
Under our Free Trade Agreement, US nationals are given remissions for Additional Buyer’s Stamp Duty (ABSD) when they buy multiple properties here. Melania — did we spell her name right? — and Barron can find a place near the Singapore American School using 99.co‘s search features. Meanwhile, your lawyer can bunk down in Geylang for business reasons. (We’re talking about the area’s proximity to the up-and-coming Paya Lebar Central business hub, just to be sure. Check out this condo.)
And if, like a select group of people, you decide to invest in more than three properties in Singapore, there are great options you can find using our portal. How about Thomson Grand for its panorama of Singapore’s largest golf course, Twin Vew for its spelling, or anywhere next to a McDonald’s Drive Thru?
And, for the clincher, how about a condo named after the love of your life?
It’s called The Trumps.
P.S. ***JUST BRING LUGGAGE
