You can't save on ABSD by selling one properties, need to sell both.
Or if your current property is under 2 names, we can explore transfer of shares.

Feel free to call for further discussion or email for a list of carefully shortlisted properties based on your specific criteria.

Good morning,

For such an approach mentioned, you will not be eligible for ABSD refund. To avoid ABSD, both properties have to be sold or the owner name purchasing the 4 bedder cannot have property ownership at point of purchase.

May I have more info and requirements about your plans so to make better recommendations? Thanks and look forward to value-add to your housing plans.

Warm Regards,
(ASk Anything Property)

ABSD is only eligible to remission or refund or exempted from 1st matrimonial home.

The conditions are as such:
(1) Must be couple and both declared ownership of the property
(2) At least one of the owner is SC
(3) Both does not own any property at the point of purchase.

In your case, let's assume only one of you are declared as owner for each property.
(1) By selling off 3 bedder, than purchase the new (4 bedder). You will not liable for ABSD.
(2) By selling off unit 2, purchase new (4 bedder), will not liable for ABSD.

Do note that the sequence has to be right, must complete selling first or at least receive OTP to appeal for ABSD exemption.

But if you are the only sole owner for both property, than you have to sell off both properties first before purchase to avoid the ABSD.

Hope the above answer to your main concerns, but if there are more queries, 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.

Best regards

You will only be eligible for ABSD refund if you have sold off both properties, before purchasing your next property (to be purchased with both husband's and wife's names) as your "first matrimonial home".

Do take note that at least one party must also be a Singapore Citizen to be eligible for the ABSD refund.

Should you need any further assistance in matters relating to property, please contact me at my mobile 9748 6305  . I will be happy to assess and share with you the possibilities for you in the current market.

Thank you.

Best regards,

Good day Sir / madam .

Assuming you are part of a married couple Jointly buying a 4 bedder condo matrimonial home , yes You are able to claim back your ABSD if you are willing to , FIRST sell away one property , THEREAFTER jointly buy the 4bedder matrimonial home condo as per your plans , and concurrently or latest within 6months after collecting key to your 4bedder matrimonial home , sell off your previous property too , in short only own 1 property eventually.

Alternatively AFTER selling off both your existing property , assuming you are a couple , each of you can individually buy 1 property each without paying ABSD at all . Almost like a couple owning two properties without having to pay ABSD .

Amongst few other conditions , another condition you need to fullfil , at least one of you must be a singaporean .

Feel free to contact me Joanne Chia hp +65 8333 3327  for a no obligations chat for your property needs.

My charges are 1% commission for exclusive ( sole agent ) selling rights to your property, or 2% for open listing ( many agents ) .

Dear Sir/Mdm,

Unfortunately you will not be eligible for the ABSD refund as it is only valid if you are purchasing a matrimonial home which is your first home.

For your case, to avoid paying the higher tier ABSD, you should time the sale and purchase instead. Secure the buyer for the 3 bedder before you confirm the purchase for the 4 bedder.

I have assisted clients in a similar situation to time their sale and purchase. Please feel free to contact me so that I can understand your situation better and come up with a plan for you!

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.”
