2. Pay subsidized rate to own a Condominium


EC is subsidized by the government and the sales price is cheaper by 20% to 30% as compared to private condos. After 5 year MOP (Minimum Occupation Period), EC will become semi-privatized which is eligible to sell to only Singaporean or Permanent Residence. Eventually, it will be fully privatized after 10 years which can be sold to foreigners too!

3. CPF Housing Grants and more chances for first timer applicant


If you have below $10K income level, you may receive $30K Family Grants! According to your income level, your Family Grant will vary! In addition, there is a up to 70% allocation quota adjusted to give first-timer families greater certainty in securing an EC! Wow!

4. Longer loan tenure compared to purchasing HDB flat


Do you know that maximum loan tenure for a HDB flat maximum is 25 years only? For EC, you can loan up to max. 30 years loan tenure same as private property. This means that you may be eligible to buy a larger size unit and have more unit choices!

5. No ABSD and no need to sell your current HDB


Many buyers need to sell off their current HDB flat in order to save ABSD (Additional Buyer Stamp Duties) for the next property. Fortunately, you don’t need to sell your current HDB flat or rent a house while waiting for your new EC to be completed. You are required to sell off the HDB flat within six months from the key collection date.

6. Flexible Payment Schemes including Deferred Payment


Only New Launches EC will allow you to have the option to choose Normal Progressive Payment Scheme or Deferred Payment Scheme. Normal Progressive Payment Scheme refers to paying mortgage as the development is being constructed while Deferred Payment Scheme refers to paying the mortgage loan payment only upon project TOP (Temporary Occupation Period – Usually 4-5 years after from the date that it is first launched). If you are owning a HDB flat, there is Deferred Payment with Bridging Loan option available. Contact us to learn more about financial planning for your new EC purchase.
