This varies from community to community and depends on their respective deposit requirements. Usually, an initial deposit investment of 5% of the Purchase Price at the time of purchase is required, with an additional 5% in 30-60 days, and the balance of the deposit required in 180 days. Please talk to one of property consultants for the specific requirements of the community you want o buy in.
