    Default New HDB ruling-COV figures no longer part of nego process

    With this new ruling, it is very obvious that government is trying to tweak the property market becoming a buyers market. This will further soften the resales price further for sure....how does this impact you?

    Any comments?

    To further promote the resale public housing market, the “Mortgage Loan
    Financing Scheme” was revised in April 1993. This scheme allows resale
    public housing purchasers to obtain mortgage loans of up to 80% of the
    purchase price or the market value of a housing unit, whichever is lower.
    Before this policy revision, the amounts of mortgages available for resale
    public housing were pegged at the HDB’s “posted prices,” which were fixed
    at historical values and priced very much below transacted prices. This
    change in mortgage loan financing has therefore provided a great boost to
    the public housing resale market, as purchasers are now able to obtain much
    larger mortgage amounts.

    Many hdb families are facing cash flow problems these few years.. credit cards and loans.. As such many of them will need cash out even at below value. Even more with the shortage of buyers.

    The situation you described sounds more like an extreme case. HDB is meant to be affordable and to hold not to speculate for normal HDB families. If a family even has problem paying their HDB loans, selling their HDB property wouldn't save them in the long run and they will lose probably the biggest asset in their life.
