JJ, keke. Ya. We tink so too.. Then plus we dun like the seller's agent.. Those like unethical kind lor. Anyway, we're playing hard to get lor. Our mentality is tat, can get, then get, if not, then it's ok.. We'll not let ourselves be chopped by them de.. Coz we're not 'Robert'. Suddenly ve cravings for Cherries.. Keke.. Machiam like preggie liddat.. Morn wan eat Choco cake, now wan eat Cherries.. My FH always say I'm gonna be those very troublesome kind of Preggie Woman..

ha ha..piglet..

the best way to play this 'game' is to act cool and dun show u r ganjiong. i always tell my husband this: if the hse is fated to be ours.. no matter which area we hunt or wat we do in the process..we will still end up buying it. so..dun worry too much la.=)

I see.. Never mind la.. Still got time.. When there's a will, there's a way mah.

JJ, think so too. So, we juz act cool..In fact, nowadays, it's the agent who keep calling me, not we call him lor.. Coz initially, is we call him & check on status ma.. Then we sianz liao, coz we feel tat the agent is trying to smoke us.. So, we intend to let go le lor. Then tis agent keep calling me liao..

I am back! If take Whampoa, i have to walk a long way out to bus stop to work. I working at Lavender side. Start work at 8 everyday. My boss very particular about punctuality. Upper Boon Keng I also can. cos in same estate. N it is near MRT.
My Hb take things calm. I am the one who is ganxiong.Hence he said he will take charge.
Anyway u all got think of applying for flat directly from HDB before?

If he keep calling you. Means that he got no other buyer. Anyway, remember that he will still force you to pay him the 1-2% agent fee even if you are the buyer. Actually why buyer must pay the agent fees? Not as if we ask them to find hse for us.

Eunice, piglet & I tried the Redhill balloting but we did not even get queue number lor. If HDB release good flats, we sure go try try de.

I'll not pay de lor. Unless I appoint a particular agent to help me find flat. In fact, alot of reports saying that in fact, it's the agent who just wanna earn extra, thus chargin the buyer for agent fees too. Anyway, most agents will tell u tat they dun charge Buyer Agent fees, but they'll charge u documentation fees- Ranging from $500 and above lor.

fifi..talking abt why buyer must pay agent fees..i damn dui.

actually..i sourced thru newspapers to find my current hse wan..the contact number on the papers belonged to the seller's agent. so..if we din call him, we can't see the hse.

anyway, he didn't explain to us abt him representing us to be our agent as well. he onli asked us to sign the option-to-purchase papers and his company's form. so..in the end..we need to pay him 1% for his service. and we onli realised that he is our agent as well, when he talked abt the 1% commission.

super bo liao! cos..it's us negotiating with the seller directly. the agent onli stood beside us to watch us do the negotiation. feel so much like strangling him @ the HDB office when we handed him the commission cheque manz..urgh.

Wah ... today here so happening ah ... gone for a while so many posting already ... hard time catching up leh ...

I agree with piglet on the commission thingy. When we got our flat, we oso only pay admin fee. My HB very steady one ... he tell the agt, we find the place ourselves, so u wan u take, dun wan, we do our own paper work ... of cos we dun plan to do ourselves lah ... but it work, the agt only took a few hundreds ... hee hee ...

I think got one agent who think she is bigshot specialising in the redhill area de. Call her is an "assistant" answer de. And she dun even call back. The asst told me straight that I have to pay the 1% to them. If I'm ok with that then call them back. Else forget it. So rubbish.

HDB now only promote SK flats. I wonder Jan they will launch again? Cos they stated tat first quarter of 2007, they will launch sale of matured estates again.
That`s why ppl said hunt for house need a lot of patience and planning.
 

lim2006diana

New Member
Fifi ... if u ask them to source for flat, then u r oblige to pay the 1% ... it is HDB ruling since u buy their service. However, if u call up ads or via internet, tat means u look for the flats yourself, then technically, they did not help u look for flat ... so if the deal goes through, then their service will only be limited to submission (paperwork) which should not cost 1%. U can complain to HDB if they insist on charging one.
 

babyfifi

I never ask them source. I surf this agent's site & noticed a flat which I may be interested in. They haven even gif me any details yet then tell me flat that I had to pay them the 1% if I buy the flat. Either that or I get my own broker & co-broke with them. If I found the flat myself thru surfing websites, why shld I pay them lor.

Morning Ladies!

Fifi, u're early eh.. Keke. But hor, I dun tink HDB prices will be dropping in the near future.. Coz of all the hype of economic bouncing up.. Unless got THINGS happen la.. *Choi Choi CHoi*.. Which is tink we all dun wish for it de.. Otherwise, tink Property Mkt will keep goin up.. Tat's y me & Fh hope to get a flat asap.. Especially ard BM/RD area.. Otherwise pple might make use of IR and speculate the prices again..
 

babyfifi

New Member
I think not near future but maybe 2009. Cos by then, there shld be surplus of flats since a lot of the SERS, BTO sites have expected completion date 2009-2011

Good morning ladies ... company going to hv year end party today!!! So working half day ... but tonite got an event to hold ... so must work late ... so back to square one!!!


Fifi ... I oso tink HDB prices will not come down so soon. From stats, usually is a 5 year cycle of ups n downs. In other words, it will take 5 years to reach the peak n another 5 years to reach the bottom. Now is only the beginning of the rising curve ... it may take a few years for it to start coming down. But if u say u want to wait till 2009, maybe got some chance lah ...

BTW, Fifi ... if u dun mind ... r u in civil service ... then at Novena ... u with MHA??? U can choose not to answer if u wanna keep it private.

Midas ... dun knw u wake up or signing in today or not ... but visited your multiply site ... juz wanna say thank you for introducing me to it. Will take some time to learn how to do up my site for u gals to see ... BTW ... Midas, u very pretty leh ... oso wat type of house u staying? Can hv so many cats? Not HDB rite? Cos HDB dun allow cats wan n u hv so many!!!

midas

But I thot cat's poop is very smelly n is poisonous, esp for children ... some more with their fur around ... how u prevent them from dropping their hair? I like cats but my mum hv prevent me from keeping one since young. Now my HB car is full of 'cats' ... he oso dun mind them but he has dogs since young, so never thot of keeping cats ...

Now our house we hv 1 rabbit, 2 dogs, 3 turtles, cat fishes, koi, parrot fish, marine fish sich as milk fish, rock fish, 3 types of garoupa, sting ray, moral eel, bat fish, golden promfret ... my hb hobby is to rear fish ... and he's quite good at it ... at one time, he even rear octopus, jelly fish, nurse shark ... he can spend long hours watching his fish swim around ... I can't, only a while I sian already ... but there are definitely eye catchy esp when pple visit us.
