    Ask DBS Property Marketplace anything about…

    ❓ Should I go for a bank or HDB loan? 🤔
    ❓ BTO or resale? 🤷
    ❓ How much can I afford for my property? 💰
    ❓ How do I map out milestones in the journey? 🗺️

    The AMA thread will be OPEN from 30 August to 5 September, during which our Property Marketplace team will be popping in to answer and engage with all of you.

    It's simple: ask a question, get it answered. 👌 Look out for the @DBS handle and you'll know it's an official reply.

    Bonus: To encourage insightful questions that will help our other members to learn and grow, the community team will pick *10 members to receive a S$10 eCapitaVoucher from us at the end of the AMA.
