Should I talk with a bank before looking at homes?
Banks usually ask you for details of the unit you plan to buy before giving you their rates. So you don’t need to talk to one before looking. But it helps to plan your finance, budget and monthly mortgage to know what to look at. Do your research online. You can also use our FREE mortgage calculator tool on this website.
Should I buy a new launch or older developments?
There are pros and cons to both. The choice depends on your needs and preference. Consider at least the followings:
- Move-in date: Older projects are usually readily available while new projects might need several years to complete.
- Your financial plan: New launches don’t require 100% payment right away.
- Design and features of each development: New projects often have the latest design innovation that makes your life more enjoyable while older projects don’t.

I own a home, should I buy another before selling my current home?
Consider the tax implication of buying a second home. Current ABSD (Additional Buyer Stamp Duty) for second residential property is 12% for Singaporeans, 15% for SPR and 20% for foreigners. While it is a hassle to sell and rent while waiting for your dream home to be truly yours, do the math to make sure you have picked the wisest option financially and otherwise.
Do I really need an agent when buying a property?
Some new projects are launched exclusively through selected agents. For the best and most updated information on new launches, it’s best to engage an agent. On top of that, our service is free to you as buyers!
