    Try UOB Zero Interest, 0% for first year and fixed interest rate for next 2 years. May not be a bad idea in today's rising interest rate environment.

    Else if you have tonnes of cash you can go for one of those loans that charge you interest on your loan after netting off current balance in your current account. I think HSBC and StandChart provide these.

    U need to define your meaning of "best"?
    - lowest interest rate?
    - highest loan amount?
    - longest loan term?
    - all of the above?

    Definately everything in the package... but of course the main concern is the interest rate cos with my age I can loan up to 35 yrs no problem... loan amt also... no problem cos not exceeding my income cap

    Hur?... got first year 0% interest?... so how's the rates for 2nd and 3rd year?...

    So far I've seen OCBC and DBS seems to offer the most competitive rates ( same rates )
    at

    [variable rates]
    1st yr 2.75
    2nd yr 3.25
    3rd yr 3.5


    ANOTHER QUESTION:
    is it advisable to take the above variable rates or go for fix rate for 1st 2 years starting at 3.25........

    Thanks, I was already talking to a list of Loan Bankers given by my agent... today finally settled down for OCBC...

    Gezz... it's difficult deciding which bank to go for cos their rates are similar, Esp DBS and OCBC... exactly the same...

    Normally they will give a grace period before changing and actually is the last day of the grace period!

    This is always the case... snice the previous 3 raises of int rates over the last 2 years!
