Singapore cooling: What would you do?

by Andrew Batt Opinion is divided as to whether the latest round of property cooling measures in Singapore will have the desired effect of "ensuring a stable and sustainable property market".

Some analysts are predicting a slowing of both transactions and prices, while others believe that some of the newly-introduced package of measures will have little impact.

Today we're asking our readers to tell us what they would do to cool the market?

Do you think the government should have imposed a tax on sellers of residential properties to discourage speculation, much like that which has been implemented in the industrial sector?

Should they have introduced measures in the commercial market?

Perhaps, as in many overseas markets, conditions for overseas ownership of properties could be further tightened?
