Why We Said "Yes!" to Our Flats

 They say home is where the heart is. Hear from these homeowners what they love about their home and why they said “yes” to it.

Falling in love with slow living

For Jihad and Nafisah, they said yes to their 5-room flat in rustic Sembawang, given its attractive price and comfortable loan repayments, after factoring in housing grants of $65,000. They love their home’s proximity to Sembawang Park, where they can enjoy nature and each other’s company at the same time.

A perfect space to bond with families and friends

Kenji and Vanessa were attracted to a 3-room HDB flat at Boon Keng for different reasons. Vanessa wanted a space to host her friends and family, and the flat’s central location fit the bill perfectly. Kenji, on the other hand, felt the flat’s layout offered many design possibilities in building a dream home. After receiving more than $70,000 in housing grants, the couple is glad to have found perfection to call their own.

Room for family and relationships to grow  

It was love at first sight for Joel and Tabitha: their 5-room Sengkang resale flat ticked all the boxes with plenty of space for a growing family, a wide range of amenities in the neighbourhood and is within walking distance to their parents’ homes. With $60,000 in grants to support their purchase, they said “yes” to the flat which they could fill with joy and laughter.
