Step 1

Fix a selling price. Every thing on sale have to have a price tag right? More importantly is to know the market price and set your pricing accordingly. Set your price correctly and it’ll certainly help you achieve your sale faster. For a benchmark you can visit HDB MAP SERVICES, click on the housing icon and input your address, as shown in the screenshots below.

If you’re holding onto a private property, you’re welcome to put in your request for a Project research report or an indicative valuation for your unit.

Step 2

Amount of outstanding loan. For HDB flat owners, get ready your Singpass at this point, visit MyHDBPage and login using your singpass. Once login, follow the screen shots below, going to “My Flat”, “Housing payments” and then “Payment of Outstanding Instalment by CPF for Mortgage Loan” and check under Outstanding Balances. Note down the number.

For private property owners, check your bank mortgage statements or call your bank for assistance.

Step 3 – You’re more than halfway through

CPF used and accrued interest to date. Get ready your Singpass, this time you’d need to login to CPF website using your Singpass.

Tip: Important to note that if have any co-owners, everyone must login to their own CPF account and get their own figures and total up. And note down the total amount.

Step 4

Agent fee. If you’re engaging an real estate agent to help you with the price setting, giving marketing strategies and advice on any other procedures the fee is typically is 2%. Alternatively, assuming you take care of the marketing, the selling and paperwork yourself, this part will be zero cost.

Step 5

Legal fee. If using HDB lawyers the fee is $300~$400, if using private law firm it ranges from $1,800 to $2,500, so for simplified calculation you can use $2000 as an estimate for private property owners.

Step 6

You’re almost done! Now use the following formula below to get your potential profit numbers.

Use [Selling Price] – [Outstanding loan] – [Total CPF and accrued interest for all owners] – [Agent fee] – [Legal fee] = $PROFIT

That’s it, easy right? All you need are just your Smartphone and Singpass.

Calculation is easy, but more thoughts and planning have to be done on how much to determine your selling price, through what marketing avenues and using what strategies to help you more effectively sell your property.

This estimated simple calculation is assuming that you’re selling before your Minimum Occupancy Period and for Private property owners without Seller stamp duties.
