Good morning buyer,

May you share with me how much finances (CPF OA funds and cash) you have on hand so I will be in a better position to advise you on your budget.

In addition, have you speak to any banker in regards to your in principle approval (bank loan)? I will usually advise my clients to apply first before kicking start house hunting because you will have a risk of losing your option money if you realise you cant get sufficient loan at a late time.

If you are able to obtain max 80% bank loan, your initial outlay will be as such:

1) 5% cash downpayment
2) 15% CPF or cash downpayment
3) estimated 3% buyer's stamp duty
4) 5% additional buyer's stamp duty as SPR
5) legal fees
6) valuation fee etc

Hope my sharing is beneficial to your property purchase.

May I know how can I continue to value add in this purchase?

Warmest Regards,

Sure no problem. Typical breakdown for SPR 1st property purchase as follows:
Cash 5%
Cpf 15%
Max bank loan 80%
Stamp duties and legal fees approx 8%

May I know any particular projects and locations in the east you be keen on? It will be ideal to speak to my banking partner so to get an idea of the indicative loan amount before the house search. Thanks and how do I get in touch? Hope to value-add to your housing plans further.

Warm Regards,

Dear buyer,

The very first thing on the checklist you need to check out will be the financial considerations in terms of purchasing a property. You can begin by speaking to a banker of your choice to do up the sums and he or she will then be able to work out a financial draw down for the purchase indicating the monthly repayment, the interest rates and cash outlay require for the purchase you are eligible for.

With this piece of information on hand, the househunting progress will be a relatively smoother one as you will be more focused and targeted.

Hi buyer,

I can get my banker to do a free loan eligibility assessment for you, and I'd also need to know the funds that you have on hand; however, most importantly you should find a house that you like and feel like being back in everyday, and not just solely find based on a fixed budget.

Feel free to contact me at your convenience, and we can carry on from there.

Thanks and regards,
