Buying a Flat

Equip yourself with information about buying a flat. We have included some tools that you may find helpful as well.

For HDB flats, some differences between a new and resale flat are:


New HDB Flat

HDB Resale Flat


A new flat is sold at a subsidised price.

The price is negotiated between you and the seller.


Flats are mostly located in non-mature estates such as Sengkang and Punggol.

Flats in all locations may be put up for sale.

Mode of Purchase

Sales launches are held periodically, and applicants apply directly to HDB for a flat. Priority schemes are available to improve your chances of getting a flat.

Flats can be purchased from the open market any time.
