Buying a House

When it comes to BUYING properties, it is very important to do a lot of Background Work.

Because the seller and seller agent are representing their own interests at selling their products. Seller agent is not allowed to represent both sides under the law. Thus, the buyer has to be mindful and prepared themselves well.

Common Problems Faced When Background Work Are NOT Done

 ⭐ Timeline

You definitely need to know how long it takes for you to have the house keys so that you can start shifting in. In the midst of the process, the sellers will request to adjust the timeline based on their own needs. Hence, you need to know the variable time factors such as option exercising period, sales completion period and extension period upon completion.

⭐ Financial Calculation

Failure to make payment in time can lead to the the forfeiture of hefty sum of option money or worst, legal action from the seller.

Hence, the stages of payment and the mode of payment have to manage well. The mode of payment is tied to these components:

i) Individual Financing

   - Cash outlay

   - CPF OA usable *

   - Loan amount eligible *

   * Depends on age, income status, number of current properties owned, type of loan

ii) Housing Type

   - Remaining lease

iii) Housing regulation

   - Stamp Duty BSD and ABSD (Citizenship status, number of current properties owned)

   - Total Debt Servicing Ratio, TDSR (Max 60% applicable to private)

   - Mortgage Servicing Ratio, MSR (Max 30% applicable to HDB and EC)

Jackson will sit down with you to go through the financial calculation and recommend a good banker or mortgage specialist if required.
