Never heard of such a thing before. You like the place, you call up the agent, the agent brings you to see, ultimately he/she would collect a fee from you.kazi-lad wrote:Hi All,
I'm Singapore PR. Planning to buy a HDB flat.
Can you please advise me what are the procedure for this? and what are the points I should be cautious about?
More over how difficult is the procedure to handle without an housing Agent?
Any Suggestions welcomed..
You should go with a mentality like that!Anonymous wrote:Kind of surprises me what people's mentality are made up of these days...
You may not be a troll, but your not being helpful either (troll like behaviour). I am a PR and I did buy my HDB 5 room resale flat 6 years ago during the last property crash without an agent. You told the OPAnonymous wrote:To: SMS
I am definitely not a troll. I have been through the process of buying a flat and I know it's almost impossible to get something you like without involving an agent.
He may well be smarter than you and willing to diy his purchase seeing it is within the law.Never heard of such a thing before.
Don't talk bull shit, I know many a DIY person, that are far more professional, than your apprentice served Cowboys. You can guarantee nothing with your outspoken rant.ypson wrote:My 2 cents over this matter:
I am pretty sure that if you have on spending over 400.000$ for the house you would definitely not worry to much of the agent fees. (Why you hire a plummer instead of doing it yourself? Because he knows what you don't)
In the country I come from (and probably in other places too) when you try to buy directly it happens that you get scammed and no money left and also no house.
So, my opinion is that in both cases you should advise caution and also consider other factors which might make you decide if you need or not an agent such as if you have the time required to do the search for house, like crawling newspaper ads and other sources (if you are on a demanding job, probably and agent would save time and by spending 4000 you earned 10000 which is 6000 gain as if you didn't worked, else, would be just fine)
I am sure you get my point, weight it through your own situation.
Hope this helps even a bit.
