              HDB’s flash estimate of the 4th Quarter 2021 Resale Price Index (RPI) is 155.4, an increase of 3.2% over that in 3rd Quarter 2021 (see Annexes A1 and A2).  Based on the flash estimate, resale flat prices have risen 12.5% for the whole year of 2021. The flash estimate is compiled based on the transaction prices of HDB resale flats up till about the third week of December 2021. The RPI for the full quarter, together with more detailed public housing data, will be released on 28 January 2022.

    3        On 15 December 2021, the Government announced a package of measures to cool the private and public residential markets. Specifically for HDB flats, the loan-to-value limit for housing loans from HDB has been tightened from 90% to 85% with effect from 16 December. In addition, the Government will also be significantly increasing the public housing supply for at least the next two years.
