What Makes Singapura Stand Out to Borrowers
Singapura's loans have a monthly rest rate, meaning that interest is calculated after monthly payments and your average monthly interest costs will eventually decrease. However, they do not advertise their floating interest rate online hence the cost of your mortgage loan with them may not be fully transparent upfront. Singapura is one of the few firms that offer a bridging loan, which allows borrowers to put a down payment on their new home prior to receiving the funds from their previous home's sale.
