Common Question Being:

Should I Buy First or Sell First?

It’s like a Chick and Egg Question. So the Variables are:

Having Said it also depends if your next place is move-in or needs extensive renovation.

Common Bad Scenarios You Would Want To Avoid


Customer A Sold His Place but required to rent another place short term.


Made Multiple Calls but cant finds accommodation.


Sell below market price because you are committed to another property.


There are cases where clients are ok which don’t mind because the priority is not the money, so there will also be clients who still prefer to “Buy First then Sell” or “Sell First then Buy.”

The workarounds will be the Salesperson has to really knows what he is doing and to be well communicated with the Property Owners.

We have done most of the Variations.

Easy to Complex Case Studies as Such:


First Sell a four-bedroom Condo, Secondly Buys atwo-bedroom Ownstay and Thirdly New Launch forRental income(Buy in Trust or Single Name).

Home Owner only Moves one time and don’t need any temporary Accommodation.


First Buys a Freehold Semi-Detached Landed.

Secondly Sells the Buyer’s 99 Yr Inter-Terrace House within a timeline.

And Thirdly the Seller Buy an HDB in Cash.


1 Same Client

First Buy a 99 Yr 3bedroom Condo in Mass-market Area for $1.1m.

Secondly sells his HDB at $10k below COV.

Helped to rent the condo out for three years and Later Sells the same 99 Yr 3bedroom Condo in Mass-market Area at $1.3m and re-invest into a Freehold 2bedroom in Newton at $1.22m.

Supposedly if he were to hold on to the same HDB. The Property Value remains the same. While now the Freehold 2bedroom in Newton is worth minimum $1.55m.


First Sells the 20 yrs old 99 yr Condo, Secondly Buys a 3 yr old 99 yr Condo. Supposedly if he stuck with his property, there is noincrement. Whereas now the property has made a $300kPaperwork.


First Sells a Studio 99 yr Condo, Secondly upgraded to a nearby 4
Bedroom Freehold Condo. (Challenges were on the Loan, But we got it through.)

All the above mentioned is personally transacted by us. Not in Theory but in actual Case Studies in which the clients are our walking testimonials.
