Thanks for writing to us on AskGuru.

Some factors to consider when buying a condo unit include location, access to public transportation such as bus stops and MRT stations, as well as proximity to amenities like supermarkets, schools and shopping malls.

PropertyGuru has an extensive database of condo listings. You can search by location and find out more about the nearby amenities. For more information, go to:

Good afternoon,

Do you meant you are looking to purchase an unit? For own stay or investment?

Most important I guess will be affordability. Always buy within your means.

With a budget in mind, then you can zoom into other factors like:

1) preferred location
2) Number of bedrooms
3) Size
4) Floor level
5) Facing
6) Tenure etc.

Hope my sharing helps in aiding in your enquiry. May I know how can I value add further in your property needs?

Best regards,

YT Tan

Hi Sir/Madam

1. Are you looking for own stay or investment?
2. Do you plan to take loan for your purchase?
If yes, Before shortlisting project/unit, I will suggest to check your in principal approval of your loan from banker. I can connect you with reputable banker for this, free of charge and no obligation.
3. Based on $1 mill, and assuming loan is 75%
5% Cash = $50,000
20% Cash/CPF = $200,000
BSD (Cash/CPF) = $24,600
ABSD (Cash/CPF) = might apply
Legal fee = $2,500 (estimated)
Please contact me at (65) 96608508 and I can share you the breakdown for this calculation including timeline.
4. How many bedrooms are you looking at and which area you prefer?

I will be glad to assist, no agent fee from private property buyer

1) I think you are referring that you intend to buy a property for investment.
2) I believed you heard a lot of people telling you to best at the lowest in order to maximize your gain.
3) This is not wrong but you have to know what you are buying.
4) If you are buying a potato, how much appreciation you can expect to gain?
5) You have to buy a gem in order to maximize your capital investment.
6) Buying property is always about location, location, and location.
7) Do market research on the nearby rental rate and figure out what is the rental yield these landlords are gaining per year.
8) You just have to ask yourself if you are buying for your own stay, what is the type you wish to have, where is best to suit your lifestyle, etc. This could help in your unit selection.
9) You also have to know what is the current market rate for various location, so as to know which area best suit your budget.

Hope the above answer to your main concerns, but if there are more query, please feel free to contact me at 90110636, or email: ling.ck7@gmail.com if more information is needed.
I'll be glad to assist.
