Yes, you will have to subject to the agreement with your agent. While there is no industry mandated law, agents typically charge a 2% commission when selling and a 1% commission for buying. We advise you to agree to the agent's fee before you engage him or her.
Hope this answers your question.

Yes, as long as you engage the Agent to act for you, it's only right that you pay him his rightful commission. The market rate for condo sale is 2%, while a HDB purchase is at 1%.
In my opinion, rather than haggle over the commission, shift your focus to how you can achieve the best possible selling price for your condo as well as negotiate a fair deal for your HDB flat purchase.
I had recently helped my 4BR condo owner sold his condo at above his expectations, and because of this, he still have excess monies left even after paying me 1% commission for his HDB flat purchase. What's more important, I have full control of his Timeline, and I made sure he does not need to shift house more than once while doing his sale and purchase concurrently. Win-win situation if you ask me.
I am experienced and well-versed in both HDB and private transactions. I will be able to assist you in your property plans. Please get in touch with me for a more in-depth discussion.

Yes the same agent is representing you in two separate transactions, and value adding with professional inputs to maximize the outcomes for both your transactions. Timely coordination of timeline is also important to ensure a smooth transition.
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.

I would like to compliment Mr Ivan Ng for his professional work and effort.I sent my first post in Jan 2019 and Ivan replied promptly, so I have decided to contact Ivan for follow up. My EC was not ready for sale due to MOP (another 3 months from Jan) at that time and Ivan was able to give me advices on how to proceed from there. Initially we have decided to try to write to HDB for early sale but since it was only 3 months left, eventually we waited for another 3 months while we looked for our next property. Ivan was able to arrange for new property showroom appointment at a timely manner while helping us to list for our EC for sale. We were a bit worried when our EC sale time was longer than expected due to trade war, but Ivan was able to reassure us that our EC would sell. By November, he managed to secure a buyer for our EC. Thank you.

I would like to express my appreciation to Ivan Ng for his excellent work. Ivan is a dedicated, client-focused, patient and sincere agent. Throughout the whole process of selling and looking for our next property, he has always acted very professionally that makes my wife and I feel at ease and assured. Ivan is not a pushy and hard sales agent. Ivan listens and understands our needs and carefully guided us through. We are fortunate to have Ivan as our agent. Thank you Ivan.

It is advisable to engage the same agent to assist you with the sale and purchase so that he or she can plan for you the timeline and finances so that you are able to transit from one property to another smoothly and seamlessly without the need for an interim housing solution. Commission is payable for both the sale and the purchase as they are 2 separate transactions.
I have assisted many of my clients to transit from private properties to HDB. Please feel free to contact me so that I can understand your situation better and assist you further.

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.”
“Nick is very pro-active in helping us to resolve what Read More
