HDB BTO to Prices Sorted by Estate and Price of Rooms in Singapore (From 2019 to May 2022)

HDB BTO season comes four times a year, and each quarter, the news reports about the hordes of hopefuls who cross their fingers and hope to be allocated a new flat from HDB. HDB BTO application rates can go over 10 times, especially for popular unit types and 4- and 5-room flats.

For instance, the recent HDB BTO May 2022 in Jurong West saw 3,294 applicants vying for the 214 5-room units, with the overall application rate being 15.4 for 3-room or larger flats for non-elderly applicants.

If you’re planning to ask your partner “BTO aimai?” and apply for any upcoming BTO or SBF launches, you’ll want to do some research to maximise your chances before taking the plunge. And what better way to do that than by studying past BTO prices and trends? 

You would also have to check your HDB BTO application eligibility before applying for an HDB BTO flat. To know if you can qualify, you can check out the HDB BTO application eligibility portal on HDB’s website. Once you are on the HDB BTO application eligibility homepage, there are various schemes to look out for.

Do also take note of the new cooling measures when calculating your HDB-granted loan. For any purchase of new BTO flats from 16 December 2021, aspiring homeowners will face a lower LTV limit of 85% (from 90%). This means you would only be able to loan 85% of the property value. 

Here is a list of past HDB BTO launch prices, from 2019 to May 2022, for 2-room Flexi, 3-room, 4-room and 5-room flats. Didn’t apply for any of the HDB BTO May 2022 launches? Check out the upcoming HDB BTO August 2022 launches.

Bukit Merah is highly sought-after due to its location on the edge of the city core, but BTO launches in the area are scarce. Thus, it comes as no surprise that the May 2021 launch of Telok Blangah Beacon saw prices for 3-room flats hovering at around the half a million mark. Plus, the proximity to the upcoming Greater Southern Waterfront project makes launches in this area even more desirable.

It is likely that most of the launches in these HDB towns will fall under the Prime Location Public Housing (PLH) model. However, the Bukit Merah Ridge project which was launched in the HDB BTO May 2022 round saw less demand compared to the previous PLH launches.

4-room flat prices

5-room flat prices

The first BTO launched under the PLH model is the River Peaks I & II in Rochor. Under the PLH Model, these prime-location flats will face a longer MOP of 10 years and tighter rental conditions, and owners selling the flat will have to fork out a clawback subsidy of 6% of the resale price or flat’s valuation, whichever is higher, to HDB when they do sell the house.

These new measures were designed to prevent excessive windfall gains (to curb the “lottery effect“) and keep public housing affordable, no matter the location.

Rochor is located within the Central Area of the Central Region of Singapore, sharing boundaries with Kallang, Newton, and Downtown Core. It is a walk away from Little India as well as Bugis, offering residents a plethora of amenities and eateries.

Toa Payoh is a popular mature estate located just a few MRT stops from the Orchard Road shopping belt and also has the benefit of long-standing amenities and F&B businesses.

New launches in the area thus tend to be on the pricey side, with some 4-room flats going for over $500,000.

The redevelopment of the Bidadari area was controversial at the outset, but buyers seem to have let bygones be bygones and rushed to snap up flats in the area. The fledgling estate actually enjoys an attractive location not very far from the city centre, which is reflected in its relatively high prices.

Properties in District 14 tend to be in high demand thanks to their city-fringe location in popular and vibrant neighbourhoods. The Kallang/Whampoa area has the advantage of being a sporting district, while Geylang is home to a wealth of established local eateries.

There are tons of nearby cafes along the Siglap/Joo Chiat/Katong stretch too. As expected, living in the area is relatively expensive, with prices for 4-room flats crossing the $500,000 mark.

Located in the Far East of Singapore, Tampines and Pasir Ris tend to offer affordable flat prices. Tampines is particularly popular with residents as it is a mature estate with established facilities that nonetheless command relatively low property prices, with most new 4-room flats in the August 2021 BTO exercise being priced at under $400,000.

The upcoming August 2022 Tampines BTO launch will see about 260 4-room and 5-room flats launched.

Due to low prices and large volumes of BTO launches over the past decade, Punggol has found popularity as a district for young families, with amenities like Punggol Waterway Park springing up to cater to this demographic and those who enjoy the benefits of living near nature. Parts of Punggol are still under construction, which makes it more suitable for future-oriented buyers.

Hougang’s two BTO projects in November 2021 also found popularity amongst parents planning ahead for their children, with choice schools around the vicinity including Maris Stella High School and Paya Lebar Methodist Girls’ School.

Ang Mo Kio and Bishan are popular mature estates that enjoy a wealth of established eateries and community facilities. While not on the city fringe, the area is considered fairly accessible from the city centre. BTO prices are not cheap (and the estate is home to many million-dollar HDB flats), but still slightly more affordable than neighbouring mature estate Toa Payoh’s.

Singapore’s northernmost district comprises sleepy neighbourhoods, Sembawang, Yishun and Admiralty. Their distance from the city centre is what makes launch prices relatively affordable.

The draw for many who apply for a BTO flat at Yishun and Sembawang is the tranquillity of the neighbourhoods. Being situated away from the bustle of the city and having various reservoirs, green spaces, and even a hot spring garden, make the areas attractive places to live in.

Compared to Yishun, Sembawang is a peaceful non-mature estate that is currently undergoing development, with plans for a new mall and sports hub in the works. Yishun, on the other hand, is best known for ORTO, a 24-hour hidden adventure park brimming with plenty of family-fun activities and restaurants to keep residents entertained. Meanwhile, you can also see what the May BTO 2022 Yishun launch had to offer.
