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

Price

A new flat is sold at a subsidised price.

The price is negotiated between you and the seller.

Locations

Flats are mostly located in non-mature estates.

Flats in all locations may be put up for sale.

Mode of Purchase

Sale launches are held periodically, and applicants apply directly to HDB for a flat. 

Flats can be purchased from the open market any time.
