Licensing Expenses for Estate Brokers (Agencies) and Salespersons (Housing Brokers) in Singapore

I examine the Press Release issued by the Ministry of National Growth (MND) on fifteen September 2010, pertaining towards the $230 yearly registration cost for each profits particular person.

Council for Estate Companies (CEA) and that is formed and beneath MND, will formally just take more than in regulating the real estate sector from 22nd October 2010.

It truly is definitely a shift that is more than welcome, to scrub up the ‘cowboy marketplace’, which was supplied the chance to self-control For many years. Sadly, The chance was not treasured.

On the other hand, the once-a-year registration cost of $230 is an eye sore in my opinion. I understand cost is necessary to take care of the administration workload. But at $230 on a yearly basis? This equates to $6.9M being collected every year from 30,000 income Singapore Real Estate Agent persons(housing agents), excluding the charges to become gathered per year from seventeen,000 estate brokers (agencies) ranging from $three hundred to $30,000 for every agent. Minister Mah Bow Tan in his parliament speech of ‘The charges is going to be stored reasonably priced’. I believed at $twenty per year is real affordable and economical.

Inevitably, I problem the sincerity with the part of CEA. In the company planet, new workforce possess the frame of mind of proving their contributions and ‘check with what we can do for the corporate, rather than what the organization can perform for us’ Mindset.

CEA need to investigate what it can assist to elevate the conventional of your real estate industry, decrease the amount of complaints by shoppers, to teach the brokers and product sales individuals as priorities, in lieu of revenue emphasis.
