You will soon realize that it's hard to own a private property in Singapore nowadays

Doctors earn millions a year. Just wait for the remuneration package.
Your eyes will pop out.

gcb is difficult

But two doctors owning ocr interterrace is not uncommon
For new launch ocr condo, 3 bedder compact abt 2mil

Plenty of doctors use single own name to buy and save spouse name for second investment property

Why not?
Leveraging 10x is normal.

Hongkong median home price to median income is 18.8
I think 10x is very safe
10-12x safe
12-14x some risk mortgage stress
14-16x high risk of mortgage stress
>16x respect for being brave

No joke - doctors are holding a lot, a lot of cash

Met a GP once in mid 40s - was going to buy his third private property in kidís name

Doctor and spouse were already holding one in each of their names

why not?
say you buy 1 new launch (3br compact 2mil), your wife buy 1 ex-ec (3br 1.5mil)
assuming bank interest rate stress test at 4.8% for 30 years loan, and bank wont loan more than TDSR 55%

Your wife needs to earn: $10,731.79per mth
you need to earn: $14,309.06 per mth

i see no reason why locum cant earn $14,309.06?
