HDB BTO Feb 2024 Bedok Review: Two BTO Projects a Short Bus Ride to Multiple MRT Stations

HDB BTO Feb 2024 Bedok Review: Two BTO Projects a Short Bus Ride to Multiple MRT Stations
HDB BTO Feb 2024 Bedok Review: Two BTO Projects a Short Bus Ride to Multiple MRT Stations

Note: The HDB BTO Feb 2024 sales exercise has launched. Applications close on 28 February 2024, 11:59pm.

The Bedok North Springs and Bedok South Bloom HDB BTO Feb 2024 projects are likely to see strong interest from those who are eyeing a home in a mature estate. One reason: even though they’ve been launched in a mature estate, they are not part of the Prime Location Public Housing (PLH) model.

Luckily for applicants, the Bedok HDB BTO Feb 2024 launch will be quite a big one, with 961 BTO flats being released across two sites. The Bedok North Springs HDB BTO Feb 2024 project is bounded by the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE), North Street 3, and Bedok North Avenue 3, while the Bedok South Bloom HDB BTO Feb 2024 project is located along New Upper Changi Road and near The Marketplace @ 58.

The Bedok South Bloom HDB BTO Feb 2024 project will yield 528 2-room Flexi and 4-room BTO flats, while the Bedok North Springs HDB BTO Feb 2024 Bedok North Street 3 site comprises 433 2-room Flexi, 4-room, and 5-room BTO flats.

The above interest rate and Loan-to-Value (LTV) limits have been adjusted according to the September 2022 property cooling measures. In the HDB loan examples, we have used an interest rate of 2.6% and an LTV of 80%, while the bank loan examples use an interest rate of 3.4% and an LTV of 75%

The above examples are based on a 25-year loan. However, buyers who can take on higher monthly repayments might wish to opt for a shorter loan.

BTO Application Process Updates

Every BTO applicant must apply for the HDB Flat Eligibility (HFE) letter before applying for a BTO flat. You must secure a valid HFE letter before applying for a BTO flat in the BTO February 2024 launch. Although the processing of applications usually takes up to 21 working days, delays may be experienced during peak periods (eg. BTO launch week).

Now, first-timer BTO applicants who reject a BTO offer will be considered second-timer applicants for one full year. If they reject yet another offer following a second BTO application, they will not be allowed to apply for BTO flats for a year.

The Family and Parenthood Priority Scheme (FPPS) has also replaced the previous HDB scheme, the Parenthood Priority Scheme (PPS). Under the FPPS, a new subset of applicants, the First-Timer (Parents and Couples) category, or FT (PMC). 40% of the BTO flats in each sales exercise will be reserved for eligible people classified as FT(PMC).

FT (PMC) applicants who fail to secure a BTO flat in two or more BTO applications in a non-mature estate will get an additional chance in every subsequent BTO application.  This rule was designed to assist those who have failed to secure a BTO flat after repeated attempts.
