The most expensive Managing Agent(MA)

Is AHPETC the most expensive MA? Apparently it is since 2014. No one charges anything more than AHPETC after 2014. How many dollars did AHPETC overcharged its residents compare to market rates ie PAP rates?

AHPETC and the other town councils are all Managing Agents of housing estates, single constituencies of GRCs. Did someone say overcharging the residents is naughty and unacceptable? Or did someone say what’s wrong with collecting more money? Looking from another angle, to be able to collect more means very clever, and cleverer still to collect more without the people complaining. Or there is a price for quality mah. The more expensive you pay, the better the quality of the service provided tiok boh? Maybe the price difference is for full time and part time MPs.

Then why are people complaining and making a big fuzz out of collecting a few dollars more than others?

Who is really the most expensive Managing Agent? If we take a step back and look at the bigger picture, is the govt of a country also something like a Managing Agent? If the govt of a country is a MA, the salaries paid to the govt must be the managing agent fee right? Don’t you think we are paying the highest managing agent fee in the whole wide world to the most expensive MA on a pro rata basis or in absolute terms? Can complain or not? Got overcharging or not? Or we are paying out of this world Managing Agent fee for out of this world quality Managing Agent? So the more expensive the better. Are we getting value for money?

What do you think?

YES! Our MA may be very expensive!

BUT! Many people seem to be happy.

Look, after so many rounds of COOLING measures, those sky-high-priced property launches still flooded with buyers.

Look, record-high car prices and COEs still fully subscribed.

Look, long Qs outside restaurants and other entertainment outlets.

Many many many many many others.

You tell me lah! You tell me lah!

RB, I think you are wrong. If you consider a town council as a MA, then the highest rates that residents pay has to go to PAP's Bishan-Toa Payoh TC run by Shri Kumah. He wins hands down.

Go to the source of the problem:
"... print fliers to all sinkies to question why the Sinkies keep voting PAP ... when we pay PAP so high salary but our living standard deteriorate?"

But how can WP allow AHPETC to have the most expensive MA when WP is not ready to be govt?

If WP is ready to be govt, then it is OK they can charge high high, even as MA of the country, just like the PAP.

Not ready to be govt, cannot charge high high OK?

Sinkies are fine with paying high for everything, house, car, food, utilities and entertainment abd even vice. Whether they are payments to good and service providers or taxes to to the Regime
MA to whoever.

In this particular case, it is two Political Parties playing politics and the People are just their happy pawns. Matilah Singapura said it best; who rule them is 100% the Choice of the People, that is; the People choose their Rulers and deserve their GOVERNMENT.
