So, what are the advantages when you transact your HDB through Ohmyhome agents?
Helps you Save Thousands, Costs you a Fixed Rate
Madam Chan, 60 is expected to save about $10,000 on the agent fees when the sale of her flat is completed. The buyer has agreed to pay $680,000 for her family’s four-room flat in Toa Payoh, and Madam Chan will shell out a fixed fee of $2,888 to the agent, instead of a percentage that could have come up to $13,600.
Ohmyhome has no hidden fees, the $2,888 for HDB flats below $600k is inclusive of GST. There’s no upfront payment, you only need to pay upon successful transaction.

Engaging a Team of Professionals, Not Individual Salespersons
When you engage an Ohmyhome Salespersons, you are hiring a team of professionals, not individual agent. It means that you have a dedicated team of experienced in-house professionals providing an integrated and personalised solutions to support your real estate needs.
CEA shares an article which warns homeowners about the myth that hiring more agents rather than just one will make things easier, faster or cheaper. Between exclusive and non-exclusive agreements, non-exclusive seem better with the misconception that having more agents is equivalent to more chances of selling your property sooner.
But having more agents doesn’t mean you have more buyers or you can sell faster. With an exclusive agreement, one agent is dedicated to look after your best interest. Out of the over 28,000 housing agents in Singapore, if you will engage only one, hopefully you engage the best one.
