Hi Grady, excellent article and I respect the effort that went into being numbers centric.

Can you add on with an analysis on how things would look like if the couple adopted a decoupling approach please?

Hi Grady,
Can I check 2.71mil at 4.8% computed using TDSR 55% or MSR 30%?

This is a great analysis. I would only point out 1 thing that the interest rate assumed over the 28 year period is 4% which I think is highly unlikely given the historical data. the 3.2m option could be more profitable. Nonetheless it doesnt change the outcome than option 1 and 3 are more favourable given their affordability.

Hey! Thanks for sharing! We follow the 4% given this is MAS’s medium-term interest rates. It could be higher or lower over time. Granted it does seem high which makes the cost of property ownership seem high, but we needed a proper benchmark to decide how to price the loan over time and this seemed to be the least subjective way.
