Best Property Agent in Singapore – a Myth?

Some Owners perceive the value of a Property Agent in Singapore, and all Agent is the same, and the Cheaper, the Better.

That is, in fact, not true. 

Homeowners want to hire the best property agent to sell their property at the highest possible price.

They regarded the agency fees are small compared to the sale price, especially in the private property market.

A Good Property Agent that works wholeheartedly should work in the best interest of the Sellers and should be able to achieve a sale price above market valuation by at least $20,000 to $50,000.

The Agent’s chance may allow the entire sale process to take less than 30 days without necessarily reducing your price and without attracting unqualified buyers, which can save a lot of unnecessary inconveniences.

Real Estate Sellers Deserve a High Price for their Property!

Sellers always want to get the highest possible price for their house.

However, after trying to hawk their home for months on end, they may face buyers who:

-Treating your house like a show flat unit, expecting everything to be perfect.

-Property Buyers who offer you below market rate without appreciating all the work you’ve put into the house.

-Strangers who come and nitpicked about every little detail, even though they’ve only viewed your property 3-4 times.

FAQ on the New Cooling Measures

(Take Effect on 30 September 2022)

Will you be affected by the recent cooling measures?

  • Singapore has just introduced new cooling measures concerning TDSR, HDB LTV, and interest rate floor.
  • You should be fine if you have signed the Option to Purchase for your private property on or before 29 September 2022.
  • If no OTP exists, Sales & Purchase Agreements signed on or before 29 September 2022 should be fine.
  • For HDB, if your HLE application letter and Sale launch date (BTO & SOBF) were received on or before 29 September 2022 you should not be affected by the interest floor change.

A 15-month wait-out period for Private Property Owners and Private Property owners will be added for non-subsidised HDB resale flats except for older people aged 55 and above who want to downgrade to a 4-room or smaller flat for retirement.

The 30 months waiting period for subsidised HDB flats will remain unchanged.

In some exceptional cases, regardless of age, or financial difficulties, the existing private property owners looking to sell or have already sold may also approach HDB for assistance, and they will assess your situation on a case-by-case basis.

How am I affected by the Stress Test Medium Term Interest Rate and HDB Loan LTV changes?

  • For those taking a bank loan, the TDSR remains at 55%.
  • However, the stress test interest rate used to calculate Loan affordability for Private Residential Property will increase by 0.5% to 4% rather than 3.5%.
  • The stress test interest rate used to calculate Loan affordability for Commercial Property will increase by 0.5%, to a total of 5%.
  • For those buying an EC from a developer, the MSR remains at 30%.
  • For those taking an HDB loan when buying an HDB, the MSR remains at 30%.

For Private Residential Property Purchase

TSDR Interest Calculation from 3.5% to 4%

For those taking a bank loan for private residential property,

Using an example to help you gauge the impact, we use the following assumptions.

Household income: $10,000.

Borrower’s Age: 35, Max 30 years tenure.

Under the current 55% TDSR rule, if you do not have outstanding loans, your total mortgage can only go up to $5,500 a month.

Previously under the 3.5% interest rate used for TDSR calculation, the Loan quantum was $1,224,822.

Now after the 0.5% raise to 4%, the Loan quantum is $1,152,037. This is around a 5.94% reduction in loan quantum. (Just for this application)

For HDB Residential Property Purchase

Change of HDB Loan Stress test Interest Rate from 2.6% to 3%

HDB Loan rates still remain at 0.1% + CPF OA rate = 2.6%

For HDB housing loans would be based on 80% LTV. (From 85% previous)

For HDB Bank Loan, it would be based on 75% LTV.

This example is for those buying an HDB or taking an HDB loan,

Under the current 30% MSR rule,

Household income: $10,000.

Borrower’s Age: 35, Max 25 years tenure.

Previously under 2.6% interest rate for MSR Calculation would mean an HDB LOAN quantum of ~$661K.

After an increase to 3% interest rate used for MSR Calculation, HDB LOAN quantum of ~$632K.

This is around a 4.33% reduction in loan quantum. (Note: This % reduction varies with loan tenure, etc.)

Change of HDB Loan LTV from 85% to 80%

Assuming a 600K HDB flat,

Previously with LTV 85%, it would mean a Loan quantum of up to 510K

Now with an LTV of 80%, would mean a Loan quantum of up to 480K

*Subject to TDSR/MSR.

How does the wait-out period of 15 months for private residential property owners (PPOs) and ex-PPOs to buy a non-subsidised HDB resale flat impact me if I’m below 55 years old?

Suppose you have sold your current private property or are marketing your private property and planning to move into an HDB. 

FAQ for Home Sellers.

I’m Under an Exclusive Agreement with an Agent. Can You Help?

What’s the average selling time to sell my home?

As fast as 1 day to 3 months to sell a unit.

However, based on our current sales figures, the average time to find a buyer is about 1.5 months.

How will a real estate agent help me sell my home?
