You can start the house search probably 2 months later, as you can only sign on the OTP this july, and it takes about 4 months to complete the whole HDB process till completion, hence you can get the house latest by Nov.

For a 600K HDB, for SPRs they are liable for 5% ABSD, hence you need to prepare around 174K (cash+CPF) for downpayment+stamp duties+conveyancing and agency fees, assuming you can take a 80% bank loan.

Thanks and hope to assist with your purchase plans further.

Hi buyer,

The earliest you can submit your resale checklist would be July, earliest completion is at least 4-5 months, which would be probably be November/December.

For a $600k house, you'd at least need 5% cash and 15% cpf for the downpayment, 3% for BSD + legal fees, 5% ABSD, hdb valuation $200, resale application $80. You should also have some spare cash for COV/renovations just in case.

Feel free to contact me at your convenience for more details.

Thanks and regards,

I have read the answers from my fellow real estate salesperson and it would be about the same if I answer to the queries.

Let me add value by saying that you may want to start your viewings about 2 weeks before you reach July. Any earlier will not contribute productively in your efforts as I had past experiences with SPR/SPR clients.

You may call 9620 0827  for a chat and I can share the experiences and explain further the timeline or you may email to gavin.ng@orangtee.com
