Dear blue_moon,

I understand you will be selling your flat first before buyer the condo, and I assume that you are a local.

For easy calculation, let assume the condo you want to buy is $1million. And these calculation is based on after you had sold your existing HDB and had no others existing housing loan or others private properties.
1) 20% Downpayment = $200,000
(15% or $150,000 can be in CPF, balance 5% or $50,000 in cash)

2) Stamp duty = $24,600
(payable in CPF)

3) Legal fees = approx $3,000
(payable in CPF)

Initial deposit you pay is 1% of purchase price, follow by 4% when exercise the option. Stamp duty to be paid within 10 days upon exercising of option. Balance to be paid during completion.

If you are selling and buying at the same time, you may want to consider bridging loan from bank.

Hope that I had answered your question.

Feel free to contact me if you need a salesperson to assist you.

Thanks and Regards
