There are now almost a million foreigners living in Singapore.
When foreigners become citizens and PRs, they can buy or
rent HDB flats. It means...there is a demand for at least 250,000
HDB resale flats (assuming a family of fours stay in one flat),
over the next 5 to10 years.
It means...every year there is a added demand of at least
25,000 flats.

Is the government building 25,000 HDB flats a year ?
When supply cannot meet demand, prices will rise.

For Singaporean who upgrade to is good they can sell their HDB at a much higher price.

For young Singaporeans couples (who plan to get married)
and other first time buyers, they will have to pay much
higher prices for their flats...and have to wait much longer.
My neighbour's kid has waited for 4 years...and is still
waiting to buy a flat near Bedok or Tampinese.

Foreigners are driving HDB prices up, take over good
jobs from Singaporeans...

Yes, PM Lee and MM are saying that foreigners are good
for Singapore ! They think that Singaporeans are fools...
They are not honest.
