Hi Mr Bernard,

How much stamp duty to pay will depend on your Citizenship status. And for that, I believe a lot of gurus have already given you a very clear picture on how much is the stamp duty amount.

I guess what we should be looking at here, is how we can better use our money. If we need to pay additional money for stamp duties and stuff, are there any better ways to go about apportioning our funds.

What I would suggest is that maybe you can drop me a call and we can have a chat about this and I can see how I can further advise you on this. No worries there are no obligations at all. I can also take the opportunity to explain more things to you that you are unsure of.
Over time my partner and I have served many clients and many have left testimonials for us and many have also became our close friends. We were also very honoured to be featured in Council of Estate Agents newsletter for good client service. We believe we will be able to provide the same level of service to you and also provide some sound advice to you too.

Looking forward to hear from you soon! Cheers!

Best Regards,

Hi Bernard,

I am sure my colleagues are clear with their explanation of the stamp duties involved. Besides stamp duties, you may also want to consider the housing loan and the CPF usage when getting a 2nd property.

If you have an existing outstanding housing loan, you will only be eligible to loan up to 50% for the 2nd property. For CPF usage, you will need to set aside half the prevailing minimum sum amount which is $83,000 in your OA and SA accounts before you can use the excess in your OA for purchase of the 2nd property.

Please feel free to contact me so that I can understand your objectives better and provide you with further assistance!
