Never go to just 1 bank to inquire about mortgage rates. Even if it is your preferred bank which you have used all your life, you will not necessarily get priority or the best rates in the market.
Trust yourself and your partner. There are a lot of people around you that will claim to be an expert on housing loans. These may be people you know or someone introduced to you. Do not agree to an expensive loan out of courtesy. Doing so can costs you thousands of dollars over the years.
Use a proper home loan calculator to calculate your repayments and interest charges. There are so many loan calculators that can be found online over the internet. 99.9% of them are irrelevant in the Singapore context. Some of them even generates misleading data.
