THE property market, once a rich vein for those trying to upgrade their way to a fortune, has been cooled down and further subdued by COVID-19 and what’s to come.
While some may view this as a time to pick up a bargain, others are uncertain as new developments are being launched and the talk is of a lively property market.
In our WED WEB CHAT — Time To Make Your Property Moves? we have experts in the field to share their experiences and vision of what lies ahead.
Ku Swee Yong is the CEO of International Property Advisor, lecturer and author of 5 real estate books, with a sixth — The Future of Real Estate: What’s Next After New Tech And COVID-19? — to be launched soon.

Blogger, author and property investor Vina Ip wants to help those hunting for properties to avoid the traps.
