Buying a HDB flat is an exciting milestone for many Singaporeans. Find out from Kenneth and Xinrong how they purchased their first home – a 4-room Build-To-Order (BTO) flat in Bukit Batok. 

Kenneth and Xinrong explored affordable options, including BTO and resale flats where they could receive housing grants of up to $80,000 for a BTO flat and up to $160,000 for a resale flat. Bukit Batok was their choice location because of its proximity to where Kenneth’s parents live, and its convenience with many amenities nearby.

Their combined income was below the household income ceiling for BTOs, which had since been raised further to $14,000. Kenneth and Xinrong qualified for a CPF housing grant of $48,000, which enabled the young couple to spend more on other needs, including their home renovation. 

Kenneth and Xinrong wanted their home to evolve with their changing lifestyle and the family’s changing needs, as their daughter Kaia Rose grows.
