Thank you for your query!
Your wife can appoint a POA.
Do contact me for a further discussion ,at no obligation, so that I can offer my assistance, insights and advise appropriately. I have handled the sales of a myriad of units - having also transacted an EM unit in Bishan at a record price which was published in the National Newspaper (article on website).
If we do speak, I would be able to share more on the varied marketing strategies and mediums through which your property might get maximum exposure as well as study the recent up to date transaction caveats of similar sized units in vicinity and hence, present a sales and elevation report to advise further.

This is quite a common situation. Your wife can either appoint you as a POA or she can sign the necessary documents overseas and send them back to Singapore for the HDB sale process.
I have assisted many of my clients who are residing overseas to transact their HDB units in Singapore. Please feel free to contact me so that I can understand your situation better and assist you further.

I was featured recently on Council for Estate Agencies (CEA) Newsletter:
Testimonial from Satisfied Clients
“I would like to recommend Nick Tan from SRI. Before we engaged Nick, we were working with another agent from a very popular property agency in February 2017. We decided to terminate the contract after 5 weeks of zero viewings and no paper advertisements. Basically he was just waiting for phone calls. We engaged Nick on 20th April and by 10th of May, our unit was sold off. Why Nick? 1. He has good marketing strategies 2. He always kept us posted on what he did (communications!) 3. He made sure we understand the current market situation but he will consistently reassure us that the unit can be sold off 4. He is not greedy and trusting 5. He walks the talk”
Peter & Wendy (Property Seller)
I write to commend Nick Tan (R040814C). When my husband and I first met Nick, we were impressed by his drive, commitment, business acumen and strategical thinking, and decided to engage him. We were not disappointed. Nick sourced for prospective quality buyers in a targeted methodical fashion and was effective in connecting us with serious buyers, notwithstanding the fact that the search primarily took place over Dec – Feb (a traditional lull period). Throughout the transaction, he also gave us helpful advice in various aspects; the advice reflected his personal experience and expertise and was not simply regurgitated from public sources without any value-add. Further, Nick went beyond the call of duty of a competent professional. He had a sense of humanity in the way he interacted with myself and the other parties to the transaction such as my parents. As an example, my newborn daughter was warded into A&E on the completion date of the transaction; the care and concern that Nick showed went beyond the scope of work of an estate agent. I commend Nick for his capabilities and character, and would certainly wish to engage him for future property transactions.
Weilun & Benita (Property Seller)
“We are very grateful to Nick for his extensive marketing efforts. With his comprehensive marketing plan, he helped us to achieve a record selling price within 2 weeks of listing our property for sale! We highly recommend his service to anyone who is keen to sell their properties.”
Mr & Mrs Wong (Property Seller)
“Nick has conducted himself ethically and professionally when handling the sales of our property. Thanks to his patience and perseverance, we managed to secure a sales price beyond our expectations. We are very happy and satisfied with his services and will definitely recommend him to our friends and family in the future.”
Mr & Mrs Tan (Seller of Inter-Terrace House)
“Nick provides a delightful customer experience from day one when I engage him as my agent to look for a flat of my choice to the completion of the deal. He is competent, resourceful and has a pleasant manner to work with. He is the Agent of my choice in dealing with properties and I would highly recommend him to others who would appreciate an agent that takes care and can give the customer a peaceful mind.”

Yes, it is feasible either way. Either appoint you as the POA or you can send the legal documents to her but she will still need to find an embassy to witness.
The question thus will be which way will be more efficient and convenient for you?
We are not sure how long the COVID situation will last and when the travel restriction will ease. Thus, you need to decide and plan carefully on what you want to do.
Now come the next question, what is your plan after selling your HDB? This is very important for me as i will want to ensure you have a property after selling your hdb.
Feel free to contact me to discuss further.

Yes your wife can appoint a POA for this. She just need to approach the embassy or notary public in her country of residence to witness the signing of documents to apppoint you as a POA while you can approach a lawyer here in Singapore for documentation wise. The fees from doing so is also very affordable. Do contact me at 93375051 for a free and non obligatory discussions on this.
