    • My mom kept telling me how important it is to work a job that has CPF because without CPF I won't be able to buy a HDB flat in singapore.

      Every time I bring up the idea of self-employment, my mom would start saying stuff like, "Oh but it doesn't have CPF. You won't be able to buy a HDB flat in singapore without much money in your CPF."

      Is what she said true? Is it impossible to buy a HDB flat in singapore without much CPF? Isn't there any other alternatives to CPF, for example, forking out money from my bank savings account to buy a HDB flat instead of using CPF?

      Or is CPF really a die die must-have when it comes to buying a HDB flat in singapore?

    • Presumed you already working. Another way is a windfall. Try investing a dollar per draw in Toto, twice a week. Nobody knows their own lucky day so I can only say this.....

      No try Toto, no hope, Buy Toto, have chance.

      That's what majority of people including the working clasee are hoping for. Your Choice.

    • CPF is partly your own 20% plus employer give you another 17%, of your salary

      of course you can buy a hdb flat by eg. cash, if you have say $160,000 for a 3-room BTO
      or by taking bank loan, but there is a max. amount you can loan.
      u must also be able to repay your loan.

      the resale market price will be much more than $160,000

    • Yes, it's entirely possible.

      A housing agent pal of mine told me his client paid for a resale flat with 2 suitcases of hard cash.....!

    • Hi everyone!

      On the same topic but different niche, is it possible for a foreigner moving to Singapore to buy an EC?

      I'm moving to Singapore and will be renting a condo unit at Siglap Singapore. However, i'm also interested to invest in property here, and was looking at some upcoming condominiums termed Executive Condos.

      Where's a good place or bank to approach for financial loans for properties? Also are PRs able to purchase ECs'? 

      Thank you.

    • Hi, everyone! I am doing a research on government interventions by comparing subsidized housing systems in Singapore and Kazakhstan. I would greatly appreciate if you can respond to this survey about HDB flats: https://goo.gl/forms/KxncMYOoZlFngagD2 It has 17 multiple choice questions and it only takes 2-3 minutes to complete it. Thank you very much!
