HDB has launched 10,118 flats for sale today under the Nov 2016 Build-To-Order (BTO) and Sale of Balance Flats (SBF or SOBF) exercise.

This is HDB’s largest joint BTO and SBF exercise for the year, comprising 5,110 BTO units and 5,008 SBF units across 25 towns/estates.

This launch brings the total BTO supply in 2016 to 17,891 units. Together with the 10,178 balance flats offered in the May and Nov 2016 SBF exercises, a total of 28,069 flats will be launched in 2016, to meet the housing needs of Singaporeans.

Wide Range of Flats for Different Budgets and Needs

Nov 2016 BTO Exercise

A wide selection of flats, ranging from 2-room Flexi to Three-Generation (3Gen) flats, is available to meet the diverse housing needs of first-timers, second-timers, multi-generation families, elderly and singles. Further details can be found in Annex A1.

The 5,110 BTO flats on offer are spread across nine projects. Three are in the non-mature town of Punggol, while another six are in the mature towns/estates of Bedok, Bidadari (Toa Payoh) and Kallang/Whampoa.

Eligible first-timer families can enjoy up to $80,000 of housing grants, comprising the Additional CPF Housing Grant (AHG) (up to $40,000) and the Special CPF Housing Grant (SHG) (up to $40,000). With these grants, the selling prices of 2-room Flexi, 3-room, 4-room and 5-room flats start from $4,0001, $94,000, $203,000 and $319,000 respectively.

New HDB flats are priced with a generous subsidy, taking into account factors such as location, flat attributes and prevailing market conditions. HDB’s prices are considerably lower than transacted prices of comparable resale flats in the vicinity (see Table 1 for the BTO prices and the comparable resale prices). The 2-room Flexi flats are also priced taking into account the lease tenure, as shown in Annex A2.

1 In this case, the total grants are $80,000 and the selling price is $80,000. A minimum payment of 5% of the published price, i.e. $4,000, is needed and the excess AHG/SHG will be credited into the buyers’ CPF Special Account (SA) /Retirement Account (RA) and Medisave Account (MA).

Application for Nov 2016 BTO and SBF Exercise

Application for new flats launched in the Nov 2016 BTO and SBF exercise can be submitted online on the HDB InfoWEB from today, 22 Nov 2016 (Tuesday) to 28 Nov 2016 (Monday). Applicants can apply for only one flat type/category in one town under either the BTO or SBF exercise.

Applicants who wish to take up an HDB housing loan for their flat purchase need to produce a valid HDB Loan Eligibility (HLE) Letter when they book a flat. They are encouraged to apply for an HLE Letter early so that they can plan their flat purchase in advance. The HLE Letter will indicate the maximum loan that can be offered based on individuals’ financial situation. Applicants can check their loan eligibility and apply for an HLE letter at www.hdb.gov.sg/hleapply.

Advice for Flat Buyers

Applicants are encouraged to apply for a BTO flat in non-mature towns to enjoy a higher chance of success in securing a flat and more grants, including the SHG. Although SBF flats have a shorter waiting time to completion, the number of units in each town is small, and is likely to attract high application rates.

All the information on the BTO and SBF flats on offer is available on the HDB InfoWEB. The number of applications submitted for the various flat types/towns will also be updated regularly on the HDB InfoWEB. Applicants are encouraged to check for updates before submitting their application.

For their own convenience, HDB advises interested flat buyers to view the details of the flats online via the HDB InfoWEB. There is no need to make a trip down to HDB Hub.

Flat applications are not processed on a first-come, first-served basis. HDB will shortlist applicants using a computer ballot. Flat applicants have 7 days to consider and may submit their online application at any time before the closing date. They need not rush to put in their applications. More details on the application procedures can be found in Annex C.

For enquiries, the public can:

  • Log on to esales.hdb.gov.sg; or
  • E-mail hdbsales[at]mailbox.hdb.gov.sg; or
  • Visit the HDB Sales Office to speak with the Customer Relations Executives during office hours (Monday to Friday 8 am to 5 pm, Saturday 8 am to 1 pm).

Next BTO Launch in Feb 2017

In February 2017, HDB will offer about 4,100 flats in Clementi, Punggol, Tampines and Woodlands.

More information on the flats to be offered under the February 2017 BTO exercise is available on the HDB InfoWEB.
