Hi Tia

You may buy an EC which has met its 5 years MOP. May I know why do you want to limit your choice?

If you could write to gavin.ng@orangetee.com, we may share with you our opinion after we have a better understanding of your situation.

Hi,

For new EC from developer, no you can't you have to sell away your hdb after purchase. For resale EC or condo, no issue can keep both hdb and condo, however ABSD of 7% will apply.

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,

-- HDB BTO 4rm Sellers Mr. Farvin & Ms. Sel --

Ivan was the first agent that we met up with and right from the offset we had good vibes as he has a friendly personal approach, detailed working style and focuses on building the long-term relationship.

Our unit comes with its challenges but Ivan remained positive and had no qualms committing to our plans right from the start. It took only 6 weeks of aggressive marketing for him to secure a good offer which was a pleasant surprise in the end.

Ivan was always responsive and we had no worries to pass him the house keys. The whole process was transparent and hassle free, and he was always thinking from our point of view on how to make life easier for the client. He is a committed professional and has fast execution, so we felt assured that things are done well and we can entrust the sale process entirely to him.

--- HDB Flat Upgraders Mr. & Mrs. Lee ---

We decided to engage Ivan as our agent as we were impressed with how he answered the enquiries on property guru website.

He has helped us to find our ideal unit and also sold our current unit. He was very patient and never pushy when we were looking for our ideal unit. He would tell us that it is always important to find a unit that we really liked.

When it comes to selling of our unit, he was always prompt in arranging for viewings and he also tried his best to arrange and consolidate the viewings due to our time constraints. He is a reliable and prompt agent and is always willing to clarify any concerns and questions that we have.

Thanks Ivan! :)

-- HDB 5-rm Sellers Mr. & Mrs. Ting --

We have engaged the services of Ivan Ng for sale of our property at Pandan Gardens. He is professional and systematic in his marketing approach.

He is hardworking and committed to his work. He puts in great efforts in arranging clients for viewings and kept us updated thereafter. He is ever ready to help and guide us whenever the need arises.

He provided us with sound and useful advice as well as closely follow through from the start till the smooth sale of the property within a short period of time.

Thanks, Ivan. Keep up the good work! Read More

Dear Mdm,

Unfortunately for new EC, you will not be able to keep your HDB as EC is considered a subsidized housing. However, if you purchase a resale EC (EC which met it's MOP) or private condo, you will be able to keep your HDB.

However, do note that Additional Buyer Stamp Duty of 7% is applicable as it will be considered as your 2nd property.

Testimonial from Satisfied Clients (2016/2017)
“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)

“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.”
Susana (Buyer)

“Nick is very pro-active in helping us to resolve whatever questions and problems that we encountered. All the issues are settled even before us having to request or ask for a second time. He was very frank and transparent with all the details, limitations and advantages that we wouldn’t have known. I think this is the most important virtue to be successful in this line. I will surely recommend him to anyone who needs his service because I trust that they will be equally satisfied!!”

Good morning!

I am afraid to inform you that only purchasing a private property or resale EC then you will be eligible to hold on to your existing HDB.

But do take note of these cooling measures applicable to you:

1) set aside basic retirement sum of $83k in CPF OA and SA first before you can use the excess CPF OA funds in this purchase if you have utilised CPF OA funds in your HDB.

2) you will be subject to 7% additional buyer's stamp duty.

As for building your property portfolio, do let me share with you what I had done for one of my clients.

They will be selling their 4rm flat (HAVENT FULLY PAID) and intend to purchase an unit for own stay and the other for investment after a few rounds of detailed financial planning.

You might not believe. This plan will be funded entirely by their sale and they wont be coming out with any amount from their savings. They would have RESERVED FUNDS up to 4 years to finance their homes even if they dont work.

Another clients of mine met me up on 8 august and had already committed to a condo purchase on 14 august even though their HDB sale will most likely ended up to be a NEGATIVE sale. But with their HDB sale, they will have a RESERVED FUNDS that can last them up to 3.5 years to repay the mortgage if BOTH of them never work.

I would or would not say this will be possible for you as well but with detailed financial planning, you will have a clearer picture what is feasible for you.

May I know when will be a good time to meet up?

Hi Mdm,

If you intend to keep your existing HDB, you are not eligible to apply for new EC. You can only go for a resale EC or a private property.

Do take note that you will be liable for ABSD for second property purchase.

May I know if you're planning to buy this new property for your own stay? Or is this property going to be for investment purpose?

If you would like to explore how can you maximize your savings for a second property, I can share with you the best deals in the market currently.

If I have a property investment in Singapore that could give you a GUARANTEED 35% return on your capital over 2 years, and you also won't need to pay any stamp duties (BSD/ABSD) or even SSD if sold within this 2 years, would you be keen to find out more?

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 and your partner in the current market.

Thank you.

Best regards,
Robbie Chen

    If we buy resale EC, do we need to fulfill the MOP of 5 years? Thanks.
YT Tan (陈永达)
Good afternoon,

You dont have to fulfill 5 years MOP if you purchase a resale EC. You can even purchase with a single SC or SPR.

Hope my explanation helps!

May I know how can I value add further in your property needs?
