The U.S. Dollar has been appreciating ferociously against other major currencies like the Euro, GBP and AUD.
Fortunately, the Singapore Dollar has strengthen against a basket of currencies. With a stronger S$, it makes properties investing abroad attractive as it costs less in dollar terms. This has been reported in the Straits Time recently and some of the overseas properties in Malaysia, Australia and Britain are popular among Singapore’s investors.
