Mark your calendars: the SMART Investment & International Property Expo is on this weekend at MBS.
Asia’s longest running international property and investment expo, SMART, is back in Singapore for its 38th rendition.
A timely nod to the latest CBRE’s survey findings, the expo will continue its trend of catering to Asia Pacific’s growing investor appetite for diversifying with real estate overseas.
Given the exorbitant property prices in Singapore, the expo is a fitting reminder that there are plenty of opportunities to snap up good value properties abroad, often at a fraction of local prices, and still enjoy high investment returns.
[Free Ebook] How should you invest your first $20,000?
We asked 14 Singapore finance bloggers to share what they would do if they could go back in time and invest their first $20,000. They can no longer rewind time, but you can learn from their experience and hopefully start with a better footing.
For property buyers, SMART offers the luxury of getting up close with a wide array of exciting properties from the best investment destinations.
These range from beachfront villas, modern townhouses and award-winning developments to upcoming architectural projects, anchor resorts and retirement communities – and are competitively priced from S$10 million to as low as S$14,000 to suit different investment levels.
Professional advisers will also be on hand to provide first-hand information and help visitors make informed decisions on what, where and when to buy.
For keen investors, SMART offers an excellent line-up of educational seminars to tap into the expertise of renowned investment experts and gain insights into the “Minds of Millionaires”. There will also be a lively debate comparing lifestyle to investment to urban living requirements.
Highlights of the seminar topics and speakers include:
- How to Succeed against All Odds in the Property Market – Dato’ Eric Cheng, Managing Director/CEO, Teho Development Pte Ltd/ECG Group of Companies
- From $10 to $1,000,00: How You Too Can Build a Million Dollar Nest – Ken Chee, Executive Chairman, 8 Education Pte Ltd
