5-room flat in Tiong Bahru sold for $945,000

According to the CNA report, we are inching ever slowly closer to that $1m HDB flat. This $945,000 one is a 5-room flat in Jalan Membina close to Tiong Bahru MRT that is 10 years old. We bet 10 years ago if you told the buyer he or she would eventually sell the flat for close to a million dollars, he/she would tell you to go have your head checked.

Apparently, many resale flats in popular estates have been hitting the $900k mark. This is just crazy.

Speaking in Parliament yesterday, Mr Khaw made some clarifications with regards to his earlier statement to the Straits Times regarding the 'de-linking' of BTO flat prices to the HDB resale market.

Khaw says BTO prices de-linked from resale price since he took over in 2011. Singaporeans no closer to knowing how BTO prices are determined

According to the Straits Times article by Rachel Chang, Mr Khaw Boon Wan says that the BTO prices are no longer linked to prices of flats sold in the resale market. He says that prices of BTOs have remained stable while resale flat prices have been climbing. It shows that the Govt is giving a bigger subsidy for the BTOs. Big big news. But it just brings up more questions only. If prices are not linked, what is the determining factor for new BTO prices then? And why is he announcing this policy change now, a year or so after he took over?

Singles over 35 could soon be able to buy direct from HDB

PM Lee has finally called for a review of housing policies for single Singaporeans. Currently, only singles 35 and over are able to purchase from the resale market, and only from  3-room units.

But with resale prices becoming increasingly out of reach (especially when it takes two nowadays to finance a home, let alone one), there is a possibility that singles can purchase flats direct from HDB. What a change!
