Hi, for purchase of open market 5 room HDB, there will be a wait out period of 15 months before you can apply for a HFE. However, since both of you are above 55 years old, if you opt for a 4 room or smaller, you do not have to wait. I can provide more assistance if needed.

If you are currently planning to go on a property journey selling/buying/renting/investing, I can be of assistance. Do feel free to reach out to me for more queries and assistance.

Morning,

You will need to wait out 15 month period for that. However if you get 4-room size and below, you can buy immediately and need not wait out 15 month.

I have various homeowners to do the same and is contactable at 97432395  . Look forward to discuss further

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

Warm Regards,

Condo Seller
Mr & Mrs Wee : We would like to share our appreciation and commendation to Ivan for their professionalism and dedication in handling our property transaction. It was a great pleasure to work with him as he was patient throughout the entire process and explained to us and clarified any doubts we had without fail. He was also very prompt in responding to all the queries we had. While we were unsure if we were able to sell off the property in time, Ivan constantly reassured us that it was possible and offered his professional advice. In fact, he managed to secure an offer to sell the property above our expected price while concurrently negotiated the buying price for our next property. Having Ivan as our agent significantly made the entire process seamless and fuss-free. We will definitely recommend Ivan to our family and friends. Read More

Hi there, as explained above, there is no need to wait out the 15 month period if you decided on a 4 rm or smaller HDB after selling your condo. Actually the difference between a 4 rm and 5 rm is a additional dining hall. Both types comes with 3 bedroom. Sizes for 4 rm ranges from 83 sqm to 100 sqm. 5 rm from 110 sqm to above 130 sqm depending on a few different factor. However if there is a practical reason you guys require the additional space, We can always try to appeal to HDB. To understand more on the different layout and size of HDB, feel free to whatsapp or give me a call.

Dear sir,

You will be required to wait out 15 months to purchase a 5 room resale HDB. If you are open to consider 4 room or smaller resale HDB, you can purchase immediately. There are some 4 room HDBs that are relatively spacious like a new 5 room HDB flat which you may wish to consider. Hope this helps.

Dear Mr. Owner,

If you and your wife opt for a 4-room flat or smaller, you won't need to wait for the 15-month period (given that both of you are above 55 years old).

Certain 4-room units in specific estates can be as spacious as new 5-room HDB flats. I am eager to support you in the selling and buying process to ensure a seamless transition for you. Please take a look at the testimonials below for your reference.

This platform does not allow me to contact you directly so kindly contact me at
https://wa.me/6597261112 I would be glad to assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Testimonial from Satisfied Clients
-- My husband and I wish to commend the sincere attitude and good customer service rendered by
your staff Jenny, who handled the sale of our 5R HDB flat early this year. We have met several
agents but none as genuine as Jenny. Being a seller agent, she took our interest at heart in handling
the sale, unlike other agents who are self-interest. Jenny is punctual and prompt in the whole
dealings and we were convinced that such an agent is hard for find nowadays. Jenny is a
trustworthy, honest, sincere and hardworking agent. We are happy with her service and would
gladly recommend her to our friends in future. Jenny is an asset to Propnex and the organisation
should value her. Thank you Jenny for her efforts--
Mr and Mrs Soo (HDB seller)

--Jenny is very committed and responsive to her clients and she has spent hours updating them and
looking out for great deals and even tailor-made property proposal geared towards their needs. Will
certainly refer her to others and will definitely approach her again in her future--
Nick and Kim (New launch buyer)

--Jenny did a great job helping my wife and I sell our unit. She took active steps to walk our
neighbourhood to understand what she was marketing. During the marketing period, she managed
potential buyers and provided timely updates and recommendations so we could stay on top of the
process. Overall, Jenny was professional and helped us to achieve a positive result which we are very
thankful for--
Aaron ( HDB seller)

--Jenny was very passionate and went the extra miles to help. Thanks to her professional advice and
recommendations, I had finally found my dream home--

Yvonne (New launch buyer)

--Appreciate Jenny's clear and prompt communication style with us and other stakeholders. She was
also patient and client-centered throughout the process of finding a home that met our criteria. As a
first-time home buyer, we appreciate how she went out of her way to explain the process and
answer questions we had--

Hi Sir,

Under the current rules, if you wish to purchase a 5 room or bigger HDB flat, you will need to observe a 15 months wait out period. The 30 months is for new BTO flats and therefore not applicable to resale HDB flats.

However, if you are fine to purchase a 4 room or smaller flat, you can purchase immediately without the need for the 15 months wait out period. I have assisted many of my clients to plan their transition from a condo to a HDB flat. Please feel free to contact me so that I can understand your situation and intention better so that I can 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 Read More

Hi Sir,

Based on the latest rules, you will need to serve a 15-month wait out period before you can purchase a resale 5RM HDB flat.

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.

Should you need require further assistance in matters relating to property, please contact me at my mobile +65 97 48 63 05. I will be happy to assess and share with you the possibilities for you in the current market.
