How to Get the Best Home Loan Rates in Singapore

moneysmart housing loan calculator
So you have found your dream home, what’s next? Buying a home is a huge commitment, so make sure you can afford it first. With so many housing loans offered by the various financial institutions in the market, how do you know if you are getting the best deal? What are the different types of home loans available out there? How can you be sure if you can repay the monthly instalments? With all these mind-boggling questions, it certainly pays to do your homework and a bit of research.

With the recent property cooling measures implemented by the government early July this year with higher ABSD ( Additional Buyer’s Stamp Duty ) rates and tighter loan limits, developers are once again offering buyers discounts and rebates hoping to attract buyers.

New launches since the new property curbs such as Daintree Residence near Beauty World MRT Station are sold with a 5% discount, and Tre Ver condominium in Potong Pasir to offer 10% at their Phase 1 launch. Not exactly a fire sale, but definitely caught my eye.

The 99-year leasehold Tre Ver Condo with 1 to 4 bedrooms configuration with selling price ranging between $1,500 to $1,600 psf certainly looks attractive with the 10% discount. Buying a home is a major investment; naturally the next step would be scouting for home financing from the relevant banks in Singapore. Home loans are long-term commitments, so you gotta make sure you can manage your monthly repayments.

5 Ways to Spruce Up Your Home with Interior Designer Tricks

masons interior design tricks spruce up your home
Home is where the heart is. This quote was probably about family but let's put a pin in that for a moment. We are supposed to love our homes. Whether it is filled with rows of children, a pack of dogs, countless cats or even if it is just you and your partner.

Home is the place where you retreat to when the world is out to get you. It is where you sleep. It is where you relax, entertain people and spend time with your loved ones. Because such a large portion of your life is spent there, it is important that you find it enjoyable to be in this place.

Air Connection Design Review: Daikin Multi-Split Inverter

singapore airon suppliers daikin annual promotion gss 2017
I am sure most would agree with me that choosing an air-conditioning contractor can be a pain. Aircon installation, as with home renovation can be a nightmare if you engage the wrong contractor.

As much as I would like to change my existing air-conditioners, there are also couple of other things to consider such as workmanship, and the different types of air conditioning systems. As I am living in a condominium, more work needs to be done since piping is concealed unlike HDB. Hacking of ceiling is an example, and my hubby is strongly against since it may leave ugly marks.

I had the pleasure of collaborating with Air Connection Design recently to change all my 3 bedrooms’ air-conditioners, but I had a hard time convincing my hubby as hacking is compulsory in order to install new piping.

singapore lifestyle blogger reviews air connection design
I assured him that we are in good hands with Air Connection’s good standing and years of experience. Hubby finally agreed to have an on-site survey one weekend, and Nick came down to explain the type of aircons suitable for our usage and what’s needed to be done.

gss 2017 air connection free onsite survery review
Nick was friendly and patient, and had recommended the 3 top air conditioning brands – Daikin, Mitsubishi and Panasonic. After going through our lifestyle, Nick suggested the Daikin 3 Ticks Multi-Split Inverter Air-Conditioner or the 3 Ticks Mitsubishi Starmex, which is sufficient for our family's usage. Nick also explained that a total of 3 areas had to be hacked - the ceiling above our 3 bedrooms, the common toilet and the yard toilet. Nick reassured us that these areas would be properly patched and painted over.

After much consideration and discussion, we decided to go ahead with the Daikin 3 Ticks Multi-Split Inverter Air-Conditioner as hubby was relatively comfortable with Nick after speaking to him. In this post, we will be sharing all the things you need to know about aircon installation and piping.

Avoid These Ten Mistakes For a Successful Property Investment

property guru investing in singapore blog post
When it comes to investing in Singapore, you can never ignore the property sector. Land ownership is arguably the most ancient expression of wealth. Currently, the human population is exponentially increasing while the land is in a relatively limited supply in Singapore. As you would guess, any market that has significantly higher demand than supply is likely to experience price inflation. In many ways, Singapore is an extreme example where land outweighs the supply. Unfortunately, this scenario may give a false impression that you can never go wrong by investing in property. Perhaps this is why real estate investment has become the most preferred retirement asset for most Singaporeans.

Property investment is an excellent way to generate a healthy passive income, but only if you know what you are doing. Otherwise, it can be a precarious market characterized by lots of difficulties here and there. However, with the right guide and a good idea of your marketplace, you might be well on your path to becoming a successful property investor. So today in this particular post, we want to explain to you in fine detail, some of the most common mistakes that you should avoid even as you aim to build a proper portfolio. Read on and get to know!

PurelyFresh, Singapore Online Grocery Shopping Review

purelyfresh online groceries store promotion
As much as I enjoy buying things online, I have yet to shop for fresh produce. I have no qualms about buying household items online, but fresh seafood and meat, and even fruits and vegetables? Are they really as good and fresh as claimed?

Unless you enjoy spanning through rows and rows of shelves just to find the items you want in the supermarket, I guess it only makes sense to shop online since everything is within the reach of your mouse. Without the help of a bodybuilder or a car, I have to admit it can be quite tedious lugging your goods home especially if you are buying bulky items like rice and laundry detergents.
local supermarket price compare purelyfresh grocery online store
Well, I am running out of cleaning supplies, cooking oil and canned food, and these are really heavy items. Since we don't drive, there is no reason why I shouldn't give online grocery shopping a try. Thank goodness my first experience with #PurelyFresh is pretty awesome, especially when it comes with FREE DELIVERY, saving me all the hassle!
