#ICYMI, HDB recently announced new measures to help more Singaporeans in their home ownership journey.

From this sales launch, buyers with a household income of up to $14,000 can buy BTO flats too, up from the previous income ceiling of $12,000.

We also have a new grant—the Enhanced CPF Housing Grant (EHG), which replaces the Additional CPFHousing Grant (AHG) and Special CPFHousing Grant (SHG). The EHG will benefit more BTO buyers—even those who buy larger flats in mature estates may be eligible too. Check out the HDB InfoWEB for more details.

New BTO Projects on Offers

We have more good news for you – 3 new Build-To-Order (BTO) projects have been launched in Tampines and Punggol at the September 2019 sales exercise.

Grants and Priority Schemes

Eligible first-timer families can receive up to $80,000 of housing grants. Read more about the HDB priority schemes to better your chances at getting a flat.

Flexi Flats and Fresh Start Housing Scheme

2-room Flexi flat process are determined after taking into account factors such as the lease tenure, and whether buyers are first-timers, second-timers, or others.

Families who are on the Fresh Start Housing Scheme can also apply for 2-room Flexi flats. The Fresh Start Housing Scheme is meant to help second-timer families with young children who stay in public rental flats to own a flat again.

Useful Tips for Flat Buyers

Before you submit your flat application, do read up more on the flat buying process and take note of the following tips:

  • Consider applying for a BTO flat in non-mature towns to enjoy a higher chance of success in securing a flat.

  • You can only apply for flat type/ category in 1 town.

  • Regular updates on the application numbers for the various flat types/ towns will be published on the HDB InfoWEB, so do check for updates before submitting your application.

  • Applicants are shortlisted using a computer ballot; they are not processed on a first come first served basis. So there is no need to rush to submit your application.If you wish to take up an HDB housing loan for your flat purchase, a valid HDB Loan Eligibility (HLE) Letter is required when you book a flat. Do check your loan eligibility and apply for an HLE letter at www.hdb.gov.sg/hleapply.

Punggol Point Cove

Located along the eastern shoreline of the district, Punggol Point Cove comprises 6 residential blocks with staggered heights from 8 to 26 storeys, with some units offering seafront views.

Punggol Point Crown

The name of this project was inspired by the crowns of existing trees along an adjacent Heritage Trail and the lush landscape found within the project. It’s worthy to note that this very site housed the first public zoo in Singapore in the 1920s! Drawing on this rich history, landscapes within Punggol Point Crown will be designed with zoological themes.

The BTO projects will each comprise a childcare centre and Residents’ Committee Centre. With the nearby Punggol Point LRT station and upcoming Punggol Coast MRT station on the North East Line, residents can travel conveniently within Punggol and beyond the town.

With abundant green spaces and close proximity to the sea, Punggol Point is an ideal choice for those looking for a tranquil and active lifestyle.
