May 2019 BTO Exercise

The 3,485 BTO flats on offer are spread across four projects. Three projects are in the non-mature towns of Tengah and Woodlands, while another project is in the mature town of Kallang Whampoa.

A wide selection of flats, ranging from 2-room Flexi to 5-room flats, is offered to meet the diverse housing needs of first-timer and second-timer families, elderly and singles. In view of the eldercare services and facilities in its vicinity, the 2-room Flexi flats at Kempas Residences are offered only to seniors (aged 55 and above) on short leases of between 15 and 45 years (in 5-year increments).

HDB Launches Priced with Generous Subsidy

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. In addition, 2-room Flexi flats are priced taking into account the lease chosen.

HDB said that 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, flat buyers could pay as little as $6,000 for a 2-room Flexi flat, $90,000 for a 3-room flat, $184,000 for a 4-room flat, and $331,000 for a 5-room flat.
