Why is getting a competitive valuation important?

Aren't property valuations all the same?

Not only are property valuations different between banks, they can sometimes differ between bankers from the same bank. It is important to get competitive valuations so that you have an option of matching the seller's asking price.

We work with experienced bankers who can help secure competitive valuations so that you can purchase your dream home!

When refinancing or taking out an equity/term loan, this also means that you are able maximise the amount that you can borrow from the bank.

Want to make an offer on a property

make an offer on property

Let us know your property details above and we will help you get a bank valuation on the property.

Once you get a valuation that matches your price, then we can help you apply for an IPA if you have not already gotten it.

An indicative valuation usually takes 1 to 2 days. It really depends on the volume of requests to the banks and some banks will react faster than others.

An IPA can take a further 2-3 days to secure assuming that all documents are in order.

You should only sign the Option-to-Purchase after you have the indicative bank valuation and an IPA, otherwise your option money could be at risk!

Want to refinance on an existing home loan, get an equity/term loan

equity loan refinance existing home loan

Let us know your property details above and we will help you get a bank valuation on the property.

Once you get valuations that matches your expectations, we can help get the best rates for you.

The loan quantum should at least be equal to your existing loan if you are refinancing. Otherwise, you will need to top up the difference.

How much can I borrow?

Banks and financial institutions have differing criteria to assess how much you can borrow for your home loan. Broadly, the factors affecting how much home loan you can get will depend on :

  • Gross Monthly Income (also for joint applications)
  • Buyer's / Buyers' Age
  • Loan Quantum
  • Credit Score (e.g Total Debt Servicing Ratio / Mortgage Service Ratio)
  • Type of property
  • Others

The TDSR is capped at 60% of your gross monthly income for private properties, whereas HDB is capped at 30% for both TDSR and MSR. 

What are the different types of loans?

Depending on the type of property, here are the types of home loan you can apply for according to HDB and MAS guidelines:

HDB Home Loan

Do you offer Equity Loan / Term Loans?


Yes we do! Our partner banks offer very attractive terms for Equity Loans / Term Loans.

These loans are available to you if:

  • You own a private property (cannot be taken out against HDBs)
  • the valuation of your property has increased significantly and you want to "cash-out" some of the value through a loan
  • You have paid down/paid off the loan on your property and you want to "cash-out" against the property.

A Term Loan is one where you are taking a loan on top of your existing home loan. An Equity Loan is one where you have fully paid up your home loan and are using your property as collateral to borrow money from the bank.  Others may also refer to this as cash out refinancing.

How much can I borrow?

You will be able to borrow up to 75% of your home's current value subject to this formula (provided your outstanding loan and CPF balance does not exceed 75% of current home value) : 

75% of current home value (subject to bank's approval) - outstanding loan amount - CPF amount used for home payment so far

Loan Tenure

Your loan tenure is subjected to this formula:

75 Years - your age - number of years spend servicing an existing loan

So, if you are 50 years old, then your maximum loan tenure is 25 years old. After subtracting the number of years you have spent servicing your existing loan for 20 years, then your maxmum loan tenure is only 5 years.

Basically, you can monetise the value of your home through a loan if there is just a large positive difference between the value of your property and your current loan. 

Note that TDSR and LTV rules still apply. In addition, you need to deduct the CPF amount used for the property from the loan quantum. In today's low interest rate environment, it may make sense to "cash-out" for other urgent needs or to invest in higher yielding assets. Just remember that the cash should not be left idle in your bank account as you are paying the loan interest on it!

Here are some common questions
about Home Loans

1. Should I get a loan if the property I am buying is under construction?

Yes. If you plan on using your CPF to pay for the downpayments, you will need to show evidence that you have gotten a bank loan before CPF can disburse your monies.


2. Should I get an In-Principle Approval if I am looking to buy a new property?

Absolutely. At a minimum, you really need understand 2 things before you go property hunting:

1) the maximum amount a bank is willing to lend to you based on your income, assets and credit worthiness.

2) a rough sense of the monthly loan payments for the quantum of loan that you have in mind and whether you be comfortable paying that amount every month. Remember that loan interest rates may go up in the future.

This will help you to target properties that are affordable to you. An IPA is only valid for about 30 days. However, if there has been no significant difference in your financial standing and creditworthniness, then you can expect to be able to borrow at a similar level when you actually do apply for a loan subsequently.

Remember to get a property valuation through us before you make an offer!


3. I am a foreigner. Can I get a mortgage in Singapore?

Yes, you can! In fact we work with banks that provide the highest LTV ratios to foreigners. Contact us to find out more!

WhatsApp us: +65 9151 5963 (Mon to Fri: 9am - 5pm)


4. What is the LTV if I already have an existing property?

The LTV limits for individuals change depending on the number of outstanding housing loans you have.

Outstanding housing loans  LTV limit Minimum cash downpayment
None 75% or 55%

5% (for LTV of 75%)

10% (for LTV of 55%)

1 45% or 25% 25%
2 or more 35% or 15% 25%

The lower LTV limit iis applied f the loan tenure exceeds 30 years (or 25 years for HDB flats), or the loan period extends beyond the borrower’s age of 65 years.


5. What is the TDSR and MSR?

The Total Debt Servicing Ratio ("TDSR") is a measure of your current debt servicing obligations relative your income for private property.

The Mortgage Servicing Ratio ("MSR") measures the portion of a your gross monthly income that goes towards repaying all property loans, including the loan being applied for are and is applicable for HDB flats/executive condominiums bought directly from a developer.

The TDSR is capped at 60% of your gross monthly income, but some financial assets may be included in the calculation. The MSR is capped at 30% of your gross monthly income.

TDSR Calculation

Basically, the bank will calculate your monthly debt obligations as a percentage of your gross monthly income.

Monthly Debt Obligations (TDSR Numerator)

Monthly debt includes all outstanding debt obligations:. This includes:

  • Property-related loans, including the loan being applied for.
  • Car loans.
  • Student loans.
  • Renovation loans.
  • Credit card loans.
  • Any other secured or unsecured loans, including revolving loans.

When calculating the monthly interest payable, a medium-term interest rate is applied to the loan of the property being purchased or secured against for refinancing. Other properties use the following interest rates:

Liquid assets Other financial assets
Eligible financial assets
Singapore dollars and coins, including deposits
  • Foreign currency notes and coins, including deposits
  • Collective investment schemes
  • Business trusts
  • Debentures
  • Stocks
  • Structured deposits
  • Gold
Pledged for at least 4 years
Recognise up to 100% of value Recognise up to 70% of value
Unpledged, or pledged for less than 4 years
Recognise up to 30% of value Recognise up to 30% of value


Calculating MSR

When calculating MSR, the bank will consider:

  • All the your property loans.
  • At least 20% of the monthly debt obligation for any property loan where the you are a guarantor.

This is then divided by your gross monthly income to derive the MSR.
