What Makes OCBC Stand Out to Borrowers

OCBC's status as a long-time major bank in Singapore and its competitive interest rates make it worth considering as a source of home loans for prospective homeowners. From the later months of 2017 into 2018, OCBC generally offered very competitive introductory fixed rates and slightly less competitive long-term floating rates. That being said, its introductory fixed rates can be quite attractive for consumers who are willing to refinance their loans regularly to keep their costs low. Ultimately, the total cost of an OCBC home loan is often among the cheapest available and worth considering for individuals seeking home loans. At any rate, housing lenders frequently change their rates, so it is imperative for borrowers to compare the newest interest rates regularly.

OCBC has offered competitive introductory floating rates for its housing loans for BTO units. However, these rates increased incrementally starting in second year of the loan making the total cost of these loans slightly less competitive than its other fixed rate loan products. With that said, lenders do update their rates often, so it is still worth checking OCBC's BTO loan rates before choosing a home loan. The table below displays OCBC's current BTO loan rates.

OCBC's private home loan rates for properties under construction have been slightly less competitive than its other loans. Again, it is important to note that banks change their home loan rates frequently. Therefore, given OCBC's track record as a major lender in Singapore, it is worth considering their loans for private homes under construction when searching for home loans. With that in mind, we've posted their current rates below.

OCBC offers legal fee subsidies of S$2,000 for private housing loans of at least S$500,000 and S$1,800 for HDB housing loans of at least S$300,000. These are similar offers to those of other top banks in Singapore. However, these offers notably leave out subsidies for borrowers seeking refinancing for private housing loans of less than S$500,000 or HDB loans of less than S$300,000.
