Did you know that you can invest in property without actually owning one?

To many Singaporeans, investing in property is seen as a safe, fail proof investment plan, given the appreciation in value of properties over time in land scarce Singapore. However, with rising property prices and tightened regulations, it has become increasingly challenging for one to own multiple properties for investment purposes. Nonetheless, there are alternative ways you can reap the returns of investing in property assets without owning one. Read on to find out how you can do so.


Real Estate investment trusts (REITS) is one of the alternatives where investors can invest in real estate without buying a physical property. REITS enables investors to buy shares of companies that own or manage a portfolio of real estate such as commercial office buildings or even retail malls. Apart from the potential upside of the appreciation of the property in value, investors can earn returns through dividends which are from rental income collected from the properties. For investors, REIT is a popular portfolio diversification strategy by investors due to its liquidity and relatively stable returns. Singapore REITs have returned S$486 for every S$100 investment from the first quarter of 2009 to the first quarter of 2021. By breaking down the cost of the property into bite-sized chunks available for investors to purchase as stocks, REITS enable investors to partake in real estate with significantly lower capital compared to buying a property. For example, Suntec Real Estate Investment Trust (Suntec REIT) closed on 1st Dec 2021 at $1.5 SGD per share, investors can buy in starting from $1,500 SGD, the cost of 1 lot.

Property Stocks

Property stocks are also an alternative for an easy and accessible way to invest in the property market without buying one. Popular property stocks such as CapitaLand Limited, APAC Realty Limited, CDL Hospitality Trusts, etc., can be easily purchased on the Singapore Exchange. However, investors will need to do their due diligence in evaluating the fundamentals of the companies they are choosing to invest in. The stability of the management and its businesses are factors that may affect the performance of the property stocks. Moreover, property companies may or may not declare a payout in the form of dividends, whereas REITs need to distribute at least 90% of their net income as payouts.

Minterest Strengths in Property Investment

At Minterest, we unlock new ways to invest. Through our digital investment platform, we allow investors to be able to access institutional-grade real estate investments which traditionally are only available to high-net-worth individuals and financial institutions. Institutional-grade real estate investments involve structured projects around a property and sometimes a property asset manager. For example, a developer who raises capital for refurbishing a dated commercial building and manages the tenant mix of the property, is unlike a property pledged as collateral for loan by an individual or a business. Being a member on our platform allows investors to be able to invest alongside renowned real estate investment managers such as ARA and APM, their property management arm.Investors can expect potentially higher returns as they are able to invest into the property, at an early stage together with institutional investors.  

Bite-Sized Amounts – From S$2000

From as low as S$2000, our members can directly invest in premium real estate properties through our institutional grade real estate investments. This is a palatable entry price for investors into real estate investments.
