  • Choa Chu Kang (4-room)
  • Hougang (3-room, 4-room & 5-room)

Prospective buyers should note the income ceiling to purchase some 3-room flats.

The 2-room Flexi listings on the portal are also on a short-lease basis of 40 years. Those interested in other lease periods should visit the individual project listings on the portal for more details.

Open Booking of Flats allows home buyers to book a flat as quick as possible

According to SingSaver, HDB’s Open Booking of Flats exercise is made up of the flats that were left unsold during the Sale of Balance Flats exercise. These include leftover flats from Build to order (BTO) exercises, flats homeowners gave up after selecting, and flats HDB repurchased from existing owners.

Per HDB, those who wish to buy a flat can apply online and get a queue number for flat booking on a first-come-first-served basis under the Open Booking of Flats exercise. With this, they are able to book a unit quickly — some as early as the next working day. This hence allows more buyers to move into their new homes earlier.
