Dear A.S.S. Editor
HDB has already announced that from next year onwards, couples can pick from 1,000 BTOs that will be ready much earlier. The waiting time for these flats in non-mature estates will be 21/2 years compared with the current waiting time of three to four years.
But the main clincher is that when HDB assured that would-be buyers would not have to pay significantly higher prices for the shorter waiting time. Very smart of HDB though, they said significantly higer prices. So, that means, price can still go up, although not significantly.
But please take note. This is good, for that means you can get your house earlier. Just that you may have to pay a little bit higher, though not a significant amount. HDB says so.
