Income Required for Condos at Different Price Points

A quick reference guide for people looking to own their very first private property. Following assumptions are made

  • Your loan approval is 75% of the condo price. There are many ways to achieve that even if it’s not your first property.
  • Bank Loan at 3.5%. The ‘stress test’ rate which the banks will use to loan you the amount. The actual monthly payment will be much lesser as the current bank loan rates are around 2%
  • All actual incomes required are rounded up. This point together with the bank loan rate of 3.5% means that your actual income required will be lower.
  • Cash/ CPF used is assumed to be 25%. As mentioned in my previous post, for buildings under construction, you do not need to handover the immediate 25% but for the sake of simplicity, we show the 25% required
