Discover HDB estates in Singapore

Housing Development Board (HDB) flats are subsidised public housing for Singaporeans. Over 80 per cent of Singaporeans live in HDB Flats making HDBs the most common type of property in Singapore. These are issued by the state on 99-year leaseholds, and the value of the home depends on the inherent utility value of the property (size, type, location). Property buyers in Singapore can fund the purchase of a development board flat with a bank loan, a loan from the HDB, with cash, or with funds drawn from the CPF. Additionally, the development board prohibits Singaporeans from owning more than two residential units at any time. In the case of an inherited flat, ownership is only allowed if the inheritor disposes of their existing private or public residential property within six months of inheriting it.

Should I rent out my HDB Resale Flat?

Another question that requires a complicated answer. Certainly, there are reasons for one to rent out their HDB Flat instead of living in it. Here is an account of someone successfully renting out their HDB Flat and may provide an answer for you.

BTO vs Resale… which is better?

It really depends on your income level and financial situation as well as what you’re looking for. If you’re looking for an in-depth analysis, read our BTO vs Resale Guide for first time property buyers.

What is MOP (Minimum Occupation Period)?

The MOP is the period of time you are required to physically occupy your HDB flat before you can sell it on the open market. When you buy an HDB flat, you are subject to a five-year MOP. During this period you are not allowed to: 
    1. Sell your flat (except back to HDB for special reasons)
    2. Rent our your whole flat (renting rooms is okay)
    3. Purchase a private property
MOP begins from the date of key collection and you must be residing in your flat to fulfill the MOP.

Does the MOP apply for Resale HDB?

MOP does apply to Resale HDB flats purchased on the open market. The only exception is for 1-room flats. For all Resale HDB flats that 2-room flats or bigger, the MOP is also 5 Years.

What is the commission that I should be paying for my HDB Resale Flat Purchase?

The amount of commission depends on the number of agents involved (whether there is the Landlord’s (Seller) Agent and the Buyer’s (Tenant) Agent) and the type of property that is being transacted upon. Whether you’re buying or renting, there are no fixed rules and everything is negotiable. 
If you’re interested you can read our detailed guide on agent commission for a deep-dive on this issue.
