    Rental around SGD3k/mth and Div around SGD400/mth. Currently rental market a bit down so cannot get so high of a rent and try to spread you investments arcoss the board not just on Riets even thou they gives you a higher return.

    google just revealed plans to build google park in sunnyvale. they are always one step behind apple in lofty goals, or perhaps they take their inspiration from apple when apple completed apple park this year. except that the architecture is pyramidal, harking back to days of mayan and aztec human sacrifices. project is called "caribbean". it's great to retire with properties in sunnyvale. :D

    Does this mean that you managed to find a tenant? [​IMG]
    If yes, does this also mean that since you've become slightly richer, you can also afford to fly all the way back to Singapore more often every year? :p [​IMG]
    If yes again, then your chances of:

    a millionaire in sillycon valley will have a tough time finding a home and buying it if the millions are not in cash. need at least 2 million in cash now to secure a decent home in a good neighborhood. millionaires in the valley are considered middle income. to be considered rich, one has to have at least $6.9m in net assets and cash.

    I just came across the following post of yours from nearly two months ago:
    sammyboy.com/posts/2693011
    so I'm guessing you sold your "6.9k" Facebook shares at well over US$100 per share sometime last year or the year before:
    finance.yahoo.com/chart/fb
    and used most of the proceeds for the entire downpayment for your new house last year, right? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    nope. have enough for downpayment without resorting to cash from stock sales. cash from stock sales is used for other stock purchases.

    :eek: Oh, wow! That means your net worth was (and probably still is) greater than last year's "us$1.6m" asking price of your new house; and you probably had enough cash last year to fully pay the "us$1.6m" without having to borrow any money from the bank, right? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    in sillycon valley you need to pay off on all your properties and debts with at least $6.9m of net worth to retire comfortably. there are also many who retire prematurely and live in tents or rv’s. :p

    recreational vehicles like these along a road in mountain view. can rent for $2k a month. cheaper than apartment rental.
