Some useful tips for flat buyers:
Information on the BTO flats on offer is available on HDB InfoWEB so you can check out all the details online.
Consider applying for a BTO flat in non-mature towns to enjoy a higher chance of success in securing a flat.
You can apply for only 1 flat type/ category in 1 town.
Regular updates on the number of applications for the various flat types/ towns will be published on the HDB InfoWEB, so do check for updates before submitting your application.
Applicants are shortlisted using a computer ballot; they are not processed on a first come first served basis. So there is no need to rush to submit your application.
If you wish to take up an HDB housing loan for your flat purchase, you need to produce a valid HDB Loan Eligibility (HLE) Letter when you book a flat. Do check your loan eligibility and apply for an HLE letter at www.hdb.gov.sg/hleapply.
Eligible first-timer families can receive up to $80,000 of housing grants, comprising the Additional CPF Housing Grant (AHG) (up to $40,000) and the SHG (up to $40,000).
Flexi Flats and Fresh Start Housing Scheme
2-room Flexi flat prices are determined after taking into account factors such as the lease tenure, and whether buyers are first-timers, second-timers, or others.
From this sales launch, families who are on the Fresh Start Housing Scheme can apply for 2-room Flexi flats. The Fresh Start Housing Scheme is meant to help second-timer families with young children, who stay in public rental flats, to own a flat again.
Applications for the February sales launch will close on Monday, 20 February 2017. There will be another sales launch in May 2017, with about 4,600 flats in Bidadari, Geylang, Woodlands, and Yishun. About 3,000 balance flats will also be offered then.
