In therory? NO

But if you have an option between .com and .net then go for the .com domain.

I think both are same in SEO but every one say .net is top level domain. The name is derived from the word network, indicating it was originally intended for organizations involved in networking technologies, such as Internet service providers and other infrastructure companies.
Hope its helpful for you.

.com represents "commercial" this is the most common extension and is preferred by most business. .net is represents "network" is originally used by internet service providers, but now all type of users use this extension.
.com would be your first choice, However, if you run into the issue of the .com not being available, the .net may provide a second choice.

.com has a higher perceived value in regards to customer perception.

Your original question was about .com and .net.

.sg is country specific.

If you wish to target Singapore visitors then go for .sg. If you wish to target more worldly visitors then .com or .net would be better.

But... keep in mind SEO is a collection of different things. It's not just about your domain name or it's extension.

Domain extention have no effect in SEO. It depend on your keyword content, backlink, and other related SEO factors.

Reason peoples choose .com maybe because .com extention more cool from .net

If you are going to buy a domain for your blog or personal website then go for .com, if you want to use it for some enterprise then go for .net.
Well i have seen google mostly give preference to .com in search results

I don't think search engines rank them any differently but people tend to search for .com first. So, I always try to buy .com

For ranking purpose I can say No. but if you are asking which would you choose from both then my choice will be to go with .com version. As it is the mostly used version of domain

.com is more universally accepted than .net, since it signifies a Company
