Buying your first home is a big decision.
It is important to choose the right property because it will be the determining factor that can make it easier or tougher for you to upgrade & eventually retire. I have successfully advised many First Time buyers and assisted them to secure their first property for ownstay / investment purposes. (BTO/ SBF/ Resale HDB/ EC/ Private Condo)
Even if you are not ready to commit now, this is actually the best time for you to learn more about your options before you commit to the biggest purchase in your lives!
Don’t just work to pay off your property; let your property work for you.
Moreover, the sharing sessions are completely free & non-obligatory, so don't wait any longer.
What You Need
Many First Time Buyers have a lot of thoughts when it comes to deciding what should their first property be.
Some common questions my first-time buyer clients usually have.
1. Is a HDB BTO the best choice for all young couples?
2. Am I missing out if I don't go for BTO?
3. Why do most Singaporeans choose to buy a HDB flat first?
4. HDB Grant is an entitlement for Singaporeans. Is it worth it to take the grant?
5. Should I be looking at at HDB, EC, Condo? What is the difference? Which is better for me?
6. Should we buy Resale or New Launch? How do we determine which to go for?
7. Is it true Freehold is better?
8. I want to go for a Condo but I don't want to overstretch. Will I be tied down by the loan?
9. Can I really afford a Condo?
10. If I buy a Condo now, can I still buy a HDB in the future?
11. How to spot good properties that can make money?
Couple A purchased a 4-room BTO in Punggol @ Treelodge for $258K in 2011. With an additional $50K for renovation works & $25K for furniture, their total expenditure was $333K.
In 2019, they sold their house at $468K and upgraded to a 3-bedroom Condominium. However, their final price was only $428K after they minus off $40K in CPF accrued interest.
Taking into consideration that their BTO takes 3 years to build + 5 years to MOP + $95K spent over 8 years, it means that their BTO was only making $11,875/year OR $989/month.
Couple A wasted 8 years before they finally made their second move.
Couple B bought a young 4-room Resale HDB in Fernvale Lane for $400K and took up a $50K first-timer grant. Their total expenditure was $435K ($350K for the Resale HDB, $60K renovation works and $25K for furniture.)
However, when they sold their Resale HDB for $400K in 2019, they had to use their own savings to upgrade.
Their final price was only $360K after paying off the $40K in CPF accrued interest.
Couple B sold their flat at valuation after reaching their 5 years MOP with no cash proceeds & made a loss of $75K over 5 years.
