Purchase Planning

Step 1: Derive Your maximum loan Borrowing Capacity. 


There are TWO key numbers to determine the maximum loan amount:


a) MSR (Mortgage Servicing Ratio): The *new mortgage repayment amount should not exceed 30% of your combine income.  (*based on 3.5% stress test interest rate, and Maximum till 65 years old loan tenure). 


b) TDSR (Total-debt-servicing-ratio): The new mortgage repayment & your other existing loan monthly commitment should not exceed 60% of your combine income.    


Once you know your maximum loan borrowing capacity, you can always work backward to derive your budget for new HDB.

It is an important step. With a written IPA from bank will give you a peace of mind for securing a mortgage and avoid unnecessary lost of booking fee. We always ask our client do not underestimate this step especially under stringent regulation and check in bank.
