Is a HDB an investment property?

We do hear from many clients who think that their HDB flat is an investment property that will always go up in value. Unfortunately, this is no longer the case since 2013. Our government has put in a lot of measures to control prices since then to ensure that HDB acts as a roof over our heads and that housing remains affordable to all Singaporeans.

Budget Calculation For Property Purchase

Should I use CPF or cash to buy my property?

When you leave your CPF in your ordinary account, it is actually earning you 2.5% interest per annum. So when you use your CPF to buy your property, you will start incurring a 2.5% interest on the CPF that you use. This is known as CPF accrued interest and it is payable when you sell the property. Whether you should use your CPF or cash depends on the returns on your other investments.


I am an investor. Should I buy a new launch or resale property?

Traditionally, most investors like immediate gratification - to buy a resale property and earn from rental income immediately. However, if you do buy the right type of new launches, it is possible to earn more from this than the former. Speak with us and we can advise further on this!
