hey ladies, if u all looking for PG & VG, i have one to intro.. I have signed up with him for my AD on 1-jan-2012 too.. Vincent Yee ( http://www.v-inproduction.com )

As for the ridiculous COV of $50K, today i just heard from 1 of my colleague that he paid $62K COV for his Jumbo unit in Yishun!! Total value (inclu the 62K COV) is $652k.. But he said considered cheap alr.. zzzz.. Luckily alr got 1 in Punggol, or else dun even dare to think of getting married.. haha..

Shanna: oh nice. Can gain knowledge frm her also

Elaine: mine 10dec. How ur preparation?

Hmm gals, i quite sotong abt the cov thingy. I noe is cash over valuation but can this be pay via cpf or must be hard cash? Why? Izzit hdb will only loan u the valuation costs of the flat. Or it mean on paper the hse is sold at the valuation price then the cov is extra for the seller to earn?

xrevlis: COV must be paid in cash. 1st appt must pay le iirc. valuation is the price of the house at the point of time.. ok, i explain to u this way: val= cost price, COV = profit. so val + COV = SELLING PRICE of the hse. and yes, HDB will only loan u the val costs of the hse.

**pls correct me if im wrong.

Hi Xrevlis,

For COV, nd to pay by cold hard cash..

We r in d same boat...my hubby is 1 of the owner of his current hse. Currently he is stayin with his parents, brother & sister-in-law. We have gotten our BTO which is due to complete in 2016 so he will need to get d house transferred to his brother before our collection of our BTO keys. If transfer fails, he will have to sell d hse..headache if this happens..

xrevlis: I have only done with my banquet (Amara) and PS (Whitelink)..That all for now..haha..How about us?

As for the COV, it has to be paid using cash. Only valuation amount is HDB loan after deduction the grants from HDD (eg: first timer grant / live near parents grant_

Thks gals for the explanation. Hee i understand now
happy.gif


Shellie: hee Big Welcome to u
happy.gif

Oh but how ur manage to apply bto since his name in current hse? Hdb doesnt stop at that point?
The prob is my htb mum not keen for him to remove his name due to some family matters. So kinda headache.
Do u noe if ur htb doesnt remove his name 30mths before u get keys, ur cannot loan frm hdb? Can only take bank loan. Cos hdb need u to dispose ur flat for 30mths then will loan u. Not sure if the rule change cos that wat happen to my bro last yr. He and his wife got a bto flat but cant loan frm hdb cos his wife just dispose her co-shared condo with her sis few mths before they get keys.

Elaine : same here, got bluebay for ps and digio for ad pkg, orchard hotel n wedding bands le hee. Oh i love whitelink gown, they got many bling bling.

Xrevlis: When we applied online for the BTO, my hubby declared that he is an owner of the current hse. In d e-application form, there is a section to declare if any of d applicant has a house. Our application went through. Den when we went down HDB for unit selection, we were informed that my hubby needs to transfer / sell his house before collection of keys.

gee, i wasnt aware of the 30mth rule...thanks for highlighting to me. I'll check their website to c if any changes in d rules.

His parents r ok that my hubby removes his name so long as his bro takes up his ownership. But i can tell u, i previously had some disputes with my hubby over this house thingy..to a point i got so upset that i almost dun wan our new BTO. V 'kek sim' lor.

So i can understand hw u feel..for your hubby's hse, what's his next plan if his mum is not willing to do d transfer?

Shanna, from 30K COV bargain to 9K.. it's really good deal!

Crystaline, what area are you looking at? Some areas seems like 50K COV is a norm... it also depends on the seller's attitude. Agent maybe not be able to do much.

I have been looking at resale houses in Bt merah/telok blangah area these few weeks too. Everyone is asking for at least 30 to 40K COV. Those better renovated ones are asking for 50 to 70K COV... Sigh, it's really expensive!!!!
 
Wow 70k COV is madness.. Am caught in this dire situation too but htb don't seems to worry at all! î–

The createursproduction give me rates like $1038 for videographer and live feeds. But thinking back, for my luncheon I may not need videographer actually.. Hmm.. Shd really think through first.

Since mine is luncheon, I will not be doing the gatecrash highlights so can actually save on videographer. But would like to have live feeds to entertain my guests.. But am thinking of creating my own montage and a short story video clip too. All these boils down to if I have the time to do so.

Shanna: thanks for letting me know istudio's quotes! do u know wat is included and is tat the usual price or promo price? hmm tink i have to make a trip down personally to JB to check it out..

ya searching of hse is another BIG headache..but i do hope woodlands resale flat cov is low since its super ulu. =)

Sharon_lim: wah piang..62k le..wats a jumbo unit?

YX: oh moomedia just got back to me..super ex..sian...

hey if u r looking for freelancer photographer, can try Alex from Depixel. I met up with him to go through his portfolio before, its better than some full-timers who are charging higher rates..he is an easy-going chap and his rates are reasonable too.

$1500 for 10hrs, he is value for money. You can check out his works at http://www.depixel.sgï¼

Hmm actually i really find tat how much a photographer charges might not be a good indication of how good a work he produces..sorry to say tat but its true.

houseoflove, i tink a jumbo flat is combining a 3-room and 4-room flat side by side into one jumbo flat. I've been to a friends place like that before...

ya this thread is moving fast.. hard to catch up.. and everyone we have new btbs joining us.. welcome gals..

i tried 4 times BTO.. finally we secure the one at punggol.. but parents dun like cos too far from both parents' house.. both htb & i live near tiong bahur.. shan was right.. our place here kim tian is selling like hot cake.. ever redhill and even queentown there too..

think with that 70K.. we can do a very nice home reno with electrical applicances..

next time outing outing can be in SK/pmunggol.. huh..

think the 30mth rule does apply.. but not sure from when take effect..

i was asking my colleagues their feedback from their PG & MUA.. happen that my foregin colleague was laughing at us SINGAPOREAN so KS.. plan so far in advance..

Crystaline: if possible try bk once u decide ur pg n vg cos price went up every yr n once they got more experience, they quote higher. So better secure 2011 rate

Evelyn: i contact a pg for my rom 6 mths in adv n was told he is bk for that date. Hee but he is just one of the few i email for rom quotation. I not disappointed at all cos i got another one in mind, just keep my option open so email n ask.

Shellie May - hi shellie~ do you mean mandarin oriental?
 
Xrevlis > thot of that too so most prob will get friend to be a temporary videographer for the daytime. But thot of getting live feeds, wanting to flash what happen during the daytime before the luncheon.

madgal: my estimated completiion date has been revised to Q1 2012.. but most of us believe that by Q4 2011.. should be able to collect by batches liao.. Q1 2012.. it just a estimate for HDB just in case we ppl complain of the delay..

Xrevlis: ok noted.. maybe i just try to secure package with 2011 prices first..
