What is an HDB Loan?
An HDB loan is a loan you take to purchase your HDB flat. Unlike a private bank loan, which is used for buying private properties, an HDB loan can finance up to 90% of your flat’s valuation or price, whichever is higher.
So for when you’re buying a flat worth S$400,000, an HDB home loan can finance up to S$360,000 of the flat price. The remaining 10% (S$40,000 in this case) has to come from you either in the form of cash, or your CPF Ordinary Account (CPF OA) or both.
HDB Home Loan Eligibility Criteria
Applies to all HDB flats and at least one of the buyers must a Singapore citizen
The buyer must not own any private property or have a disposed of property in the last 30 months
Buyers must not have taken more than two previous HDB loans
- If you’re single, your annual income must not exceed $7,000 (if you’re buying a 5-room or smaller resale flat or a 2-room new flat in a non-mature estate under the Single Singapore Citizen (SSC) Scheme)
- For families, the annual income must not exceed $14,000
- For extended families, the annual must not exceed $21,000
HDB Loan vs Bank Loan: How are the two different
HDB loans usually have a higher interest rate than bank loans. Bank home loans have lower interest rates, but are valid for up to 2 to 3 years at best
Interest on HDB home loans are fixed while it’s not usually so with private bank home loan
HDB home loans cover up to 90% of the property cost while bank home loans cover up to 75%
You can pay the down payment using CPF in the case of HDB home loans. For bank loans, you need to pay at least 5% cash.
HDB loans do not incur any penalty on early repayment while home loans from bank charge 1.5% on prepayment of loan

First home purchase was made easier with Home Loan Whiz. Great rates, but more importantly the education by the team on loan details was a strong plus factor. Not everyone is a finance expert, and it was easy and detailed from him.
After the bank loan was confirmed, good followup to check that everything is well with the banker and lawyer.
Overall, I strongly recommend!

I was served by Lorraine Lee and she was very patient with my queries and clarified them all. Not only that, she helped me to secure a good rate whilst the rate is changing almost everyday during that period.
Appreciated her initiative and I even recommended my friends to her.
