HDB extends application period for mega sales exercise to 10 days

HDB flats in Bishan.

THE Housing and Development Board (HDB) is extending the application period for the upcoming mega HDB sales exercise from the typical seven calendar days to 10 calendar days.

The Ministry of National Development and the HDB had earlier announced that HDB will combine the September and November 2015 sales launches into one mega launch. This is to allow more home buyers to benefit from the recent new policies and give flat buyers more options in terms of flat locations, flat-types, and prices.

The mega launch will be held in the second half of this month. It will be the largest sales exercise to-date, with a total of about 12,000 flats offered for sale, comprising 7,000 Build-To-Order (BTO) flats and 5,000 balance flats (SBF).

HDB added that all the information on the BTO and SBF flats will be made available on the HDB InfoWEB. It advised prospective flat buyers to view the details of the flats online rather than rush to the HDB Hub to put in their applications.
