Which project should you keep an eye out for?

With children or without children, that is the question. If you have young children or are planning to start a family, keep an eye out for the Bishan project. If you do not have young children and are comfortable to travel a little, look out for the Tengah project. 

The Bishan project will be a great pick for families because there are many schools (primary, and secondary), sports and lifestyle amenities in the area. In addition, you don’t have to travel far for daily necessities, meals or medical clinics as Junction 8 and Bishan Town Centre are just a short walk away. 

All 2-Room Flexi units here at the Bishan project are reserved for seniors aged 55 and above. They are available for short leases that range from 15 years to 40 years (5-year increment blocks).

With fewer schools within walking distance, amenities and nearby train stations (estimated to be ready in 2026), Tengah would be better suited for singles and couples who have no immediate plans for children or have older children. That said, a short bus or car ride will lead you to either Lakeside or Bukit Batok MRT station that sits on the main North-South Line – where schools and most of the lifestyle amenities can be found.

For those who are in a hurry to get a HDB BTO unit, you’ll be glad to know that Tengah is one of the projects during this cycle to offer a relatively short waiting time (estimated completion date, Q1 2024).

How do I apply for a HDB BTO unit?

Over the years, the application process has streamlined and applications all take place online (yay for us!) – there is no longer the need to personally visit HDB Hub to make an application. 

How do I apply for a HDB BTO unit?
If an application window is open, you will be directed straight to application when visiting HDB’s homepage.
Source: HDB

Here’s how to apply for a HDB BTO unit: 

  1. Await news for the application window to be open, it is usually announced a couple of weeks before the date. While waiting for the date, get soft copies of your personal and financial documents on hand for a smoother application process. 

  2. Once the application window is open, head over to HDB’s homepage. (We suggest heading to this page as soon as the application window is open.)

  3. Proceed to the application page. 

  4. Follow the instructions carefully and submit your application. (Note: This submission does not mean that you have got a unit, rather this application is for a ballot.)

  5. Once the application window is closed, HDB will conduct a computerised ballot. If you have been selected, you will receive an invitation to select your unit. If you have not been selected, you will have to wait for the next project launch to make another application.

Which project should you keep an eye out for?

Based on schools, amenities and transport options, we think that you should keep an eye on the Woodlands and Geylang project.

If you have school going children, are planning to start a family or work in the northern region of Singapore, consider the Woodlands project. There are more than 20 schools in the area that are a short walk or bus ride away. Getting around Singapore will also be a breeze, given that you will have easy access to the North-South MRT Line, Thomson-East Coast MRT Line and Woodlands Bus Interchange. Not to mention, as the Woodlands project will be built in a non-mature estate, it would make this the most affordable project during the August 2020 HDB BTO launch.

For those who love the city life or work around the Central Business District, keep your eye out for the Geylang Project. Conveniently located behind Dakota MRT Station (Circle Line) and a short bus ride away from Paya Lebar MRT Station (East-West Line) and Aljunied MRT Station (East-West Line), getting to the city would take you no longer than 40 minutes (including wait times). However, as it is situated in a prime and matured estate, expect to pay a pretty penny for a unit here.

Which project should you keep an eye out for?

The Sembawang project, and here’s why. While both Toa Payoh projects are in a matured estate, they are not as convenient to travel to and from as they require a short bus ride or walk to the nearest MRT station. That being said, both Toa Payoh projects are surrounded by many primary and secondary schools, and lifestyle amenities. 

In comparison, the Sembawang project is slightly more travel-friendly because it is located right at Canberra MRT, which is a short train ride away from Braddell or Toa Payoh MRT Station (a difference of 5 or 6 stops, 18 minutes). Lifestyle amenities wise, it is situated right opposite the soon-to-be-completed Canberra Plaza, which will serve to provide dining options, retail stores and a supermarket. The only setback would be that there are not many surrounding primary or secondary schools, with the nearest being a 15 minute bus ride away. 

Considering the substantial price difference for a BTO unit in a mature estate versus one in a non-mature estate, we think that the Sembawang project would be one to look out for.
