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. Still, with rates as high as 2.08%-2.30% per annum, Singapura's loans are nowhere near as cheap as some of its competitors. For example, if you took out a long-term loan of 25 years, you could end up spending nearly S$150,000 more than some of the cheapest mortgages currently available. If cost is less restrictive for you, 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.
