Many HDB Homeowners Need to Sell First Before They Buy
In our work with HDB homeowners, many of them do not have sufficient fund to buy the next property first.

They will also receive the cash proceed, if any, from the sale of their flat. Together with a home loan and their current CPF balance, the total sale proceeds will help to finance the purchase of the next property. For HDB homeowners upgrading to a private property, they would also have to incur the hefty ABSD (additional buyer's stamp duty) if they proceed with the purchase of the private property first before disposing the HDB flat.
