SINGAPORE — It can take upwards of three years for a build-to-order (BTO) flat from Housing Development Board (HDB) to be ready. Some projects can take just two years; others, nearly six. For newlyweds, this can prove to be quite a trying situation. It is a frustrating process (trust me, I know), and while a proposed date of completion is usually offered, it is rarely accurate. Here are some housing options you can consider while playing the waiting game.
SINGAPORE — Another three months have passed in 2017 and that means another Build-To-Order (BTO) launch is just around the corner. Scheduled for launch in May 2017, Singapore families looking to own or upgrade to a new HDB flat will have a choice of 4 different locations to choose from.
Here’s an early peek into the different locations and flat types you can expect for the upcoming launch.
SINGAPORE — A total of 8,748 new flats were launched on Thursday (May 18) under the May 2017 Build-to-Order (BTO) and Sale of Balance Flats exercise, the Housing and Development Board (HDB) said.
SINGAPORE: Young couples and first-time home buyers will receive more help in getting their Housing and Development Board (HDB) flats earlier, announced Minister for National Development Lawrence Wong on Tuesday (Mar 7).
“I know there are many young couples who hope to move into their own home even more quickly, to embark on this marriage and parenthood journey together,” he said. “So we have looked into their requests seriously.”
SINGAPORE — Young couples will soon be able to move into their new homes quicker, as the Government is looking to shorten the wait for public housing.
When implemented, the move will see the waiting period for Build-To-Order (BTO) flats dip to two to three years, from the current three to four years, said National Development Minister Lawrence Wong last week.
SINGAPORE — Five new BTO projects were launched – three in the non-mature towns of Hougang, Sembawang and Yishun, and another two projects in the mature town of Tampines.
