If you are thinking of buying, upgrading or moving to another property, here are three important factors, you need to know!
While there are countless factors and details to take note of, we will only cover three factors that we feel are extremely important in this short blog post.
1. Funds Allocation
Strategic funds allocation is an important factor to ensure SUSTAINABILITY!
Do you have enough safety net funds to sustain you in unforeseen circumstances like…
- Loss of job
- Property market crash
- Financial crisis
Besides being prepared for unforeseen circumstances, the funds should also be relatively comfortable according to the timeframe that you are planning to hold the property.
These are some factors that we will go through with our clients to ensure that they are well aware of their sustainability before they commit to any property purchase.
Many people may think that they will stay in the next house forever.
However, plans might change in the years down the road as our life situation is ever-changing.
Thus, it is always good to have sufficient funds in place because you just never know!
2. Timeline Planning
Many home owners underestimate the importance of having the right timeline-planning especially when it comes to selling and buying or vice versa.
Our job is to ensure as little disruption as possible when doing an upgrade or simply moving to another place.
This can be done through strategic planning of the sale and purchase timeline which may even cater for renovation works.
All in all, everyone’s situation is different. Therefore, it is important to understand each and every of our clients’ profile before planning and executing the most suitable timeline for them.
We have heard of horror stories of home owners becoming “homeless” after selling their HDB flats due to the lack of timeline planning.
However, even with meticulous planning, there might be instances where there is a lack of time for renovations, etc.
At the end of the day, we cannot promise a perfect timeline, but at least the risks are lower.
3. Flexibility in the future
Purchasing a property is just the first step.
We always encourage our clients to have a plan (long-term/short-term) if they are looking to do anything concerning their property.
This is because planning your real estate assets is not a small decision and it may affect you and your family in the future.
You should always ask yourself questions like:
- How long will you be staying in your new house?
- If you were to sell in the future, what will be your next property?
- Is this the best property decision based on my current situation and plans?
Your future plans will affect your property decision NOW!

Our role as real estate consultants is to ensure you make the right property moves to avoid having regrets in the future as you may be stuck due to certain factors that you may have overlooked in your property planning.
There are many more factors when it comes to property planning because properties are not small ticket items.
There are real repercussions from making “mistakes” in your property plans and usually these “mistakes” occur because you are unaware of the better alternatives.
In Singapore, there are many rules and regulations when it comes to properties.
It is important to understand what are the implications of these rules and regulations and how you should strategise your property decision to make the most out of your property portfolio.
