He does not own a HDB flat and stay with parent (90+yo)Now, he still seeking for job andcould not enjoy his golden age !!!
Tip 3: Do not spend more than 50 times of your gross monthly income on your property and upgrade only once during your lifetime. If your family income is $6,000, you can invest up to $300,000 on your property and not more.Hi Mr Tan, My wife and I are about 30 years old, with 2 young kids,and have a fully paid up 600k flat. currently we save about 40% of income excluding cpf.We plan to buy a condo at 800k if the price drops from the current 1.2m and rent out our flat at the same time. The rent should cover the condo mortgage ( assume 4% interest) , if not, we budget to have 1-2 years of savings for the mortgage. Appreciate yr opinions and insights.
