Depending on your unique situation, EndowHomes will need to assess your situation before advising you.

When it comes to buying, the key consideration is the finances involved such as taxes, down payment required and your mortgage loan eligibility.

As for renting, do remember that tenants who are paying rent are effectively helping the landlords to pay for their mortgage payments every month.

Lucky for landlords, when they sell their properties at the end of the day, they get a chance to profit, while the tenants do not get a single share of the sale proceeds.

If you are still unsure, let’s have a chat and see what is the more appropriate option for you.

In Singapore, there are a few metrics involved in calculating the loans:

    1. Loan to value (LTV): LTV determines the maximum amount an individual can borrow from a bank for a housing loan. LTV follows a percentage of the property’s value, which is 75% for most bank loans in Singapore. For example, if you want to purchase a property valued at $1,000,000, you can borrow a maximum loan of $750,000.
    2. Total Debt Servicing Ratio (TDSR): TDSR refers to the portion of an individual’s gross monthly income that goes towards repaying the monthly debt obligations, including the loan being applied for. On 16 December 2021,  the TDSR was revised to 55%. For example, if you earn a monthly fixed salary of $10,000, you can use a maximum of $5,500 for all your monthly debt obligations.
    3. Mortgage Servicing Ratio (MSR): Similar to TDSR, MSR refers to the portion of an individual’s gross monthly income that goes towards repaying all property loans, including the loan being applied for. MSR is capped at 30% of the borrower’s gross monthly income and it applies only the purchase of an HDB flat, or an executive condominium where the minimum occupation period of the executive condominium has not expired. For example, if you earn a monthly fixed salary of $10,000, you can use a maximum of $3,000 for all your monthly property loans.

These metrics are created to ensure that an individual does not take on more debt than he/she can handle and has the capability to make loan repayments.
