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.

Non-mature estates vs Mature estates: The truth and why it matters

Despite how Singaporeans like to refer to HDB flat locations as “mature” or “non-mature” like they’re some kind of cheese, HDB’s own classification of non-mature estates and mature estates is surprisingly unclear. In fact, the Housing Board does not give an exact definition of non-mature estates and mature estates. The only time these terms appear…
