Just sold my HDB and my first appointment was last week. I am now interested to buy a private property, my question is will the bank grant me 80% financing? Please advice, thank you.

Loan wise, there is no restriction that comes with HDB ownership. The maximum financing for your first property loan is currently 80% of the purchase price or valuation, whichever is lower and 60% for subsequent housing loans. If after the sale of your HDB, you do not have any other loans, then you can borrow up to 80%. The banks will have to check your income etc before confirming whether they can lend you your desired amount though.
