The Housing & Development Board (HDB) is Singapore's public housing authority and a statutory board under the Ministry of National Development. We develop public housing to provide Singaporeans with affordable, quality homes and a better living environment. Focusing on nurturing a strong family and community spirit, public housing policies and schemes are formulated to meet changing needs and aspirations.
Whether you are buying, selling or already live in an HDB flat, everything you need to know about residential properties is housed here.
More than homes, our HDB towns are vibrant places to enjoy to the fullest. There is so much in place for you to bond with your neighbours and create an active and cohesive community.
Get the information you need for any business involving HDB homes, properties, commercial spaces, or land under our management.
