Singles Buying BTO Flats

To meet the housing needs of singles, HDB will be allowing eligible singles to buy 2-room flats directly from HDB from the July 2013 BTO exercise onwards.

(a) Singles can buy direct from HDB
Current
  • Singles aged 35 and above can buy HDB flats from the resale market.
New
  • First-timer singles aged 35 and above, and earning up to $5,000 per month, can buy new 2-room flats directly from HDB.
Implementation Date
  • Eligible singles can apply from the July 2013 BTO exercise onwards. Further details will be announced when ready.

Congratulations to those singles who are eligible!

But I am slightly disappointed as it seems that our government continues to ignore the housing needs of Singaporeans with foreign spouse, still we are left behind, oh well, life goes on.

Me and my wife are staying with my parents in their 3-room flat, would certainly be great to have our own place as we are planning a child in 2014. It just doesn't make any sense to pay for an over-priced resale flat, not to mention the Cash Over Valuation, I would rather dump that cash into stocks.
