Hi, Mr. Tan

As I am 35 yrs old, do you think I should get a resale HDB or a new HDB?
1. How many rooms shld I get as I don’t earn much only $3k a month.
2. 
Is now the best time to buy resale HDB or a new HDB?
3. 
What do you think if I buy a resale HDB or a new HDB and rent out? Is there any risk?

REPLY

You need to get the relevant information to make your decions:
1
. What is the resale price of the HDB flat in the estate and size that you wish to have?
2. What is the price of a new 
HDB flat
3. What is the government grant that are available to you as a new buyer.

You can get the information from the HDB website or you can ask the HDB to help you. Visit their branch or head office and have a chat with their officer. You can also ask a real estate agent to help you to get the information. 

After you get the information, you can make your decision. Or get someone to advice you, but be ready to pay a fee for their time.
