First timer to get Mature or Non Mature estate?

Hi, for first timer what would be the best choice to choice between mature (Bidadari, Tampines) or non mature estate ( Seng Kang Punggol Hougang ) . Any expert can advice? Is it worth joining the SBF sales now? Will I get a chance less if I didn't pick a flat if balloted? Thanks

i've been in this path, thought its not so much of a concern getting non matured and so went ahead and purchase as first timer.

after few yrs really cannot tahan and cant wait to get out, and sold it off close to MOP and shifted to matured estate.

location is really a big factor for u to consider.

consider carefully, if not to shift house is a headache.

No one can know for certain which location can garner the most profit.

Just choose the one you are most comfortable with and can afford.

Thank you! I think non-mature estate is for people who can really tolerate inconvenience for a lower price. If you can hold on for like 15, 20 years for the estate to develop, the price would undoubtedly rise even more. But that's a really significant portion of your life living in inconvenience. I see most people selling off right after MOP like you..

those who went through will know. i can share a few.

1 - headache on the bus service. bus always full as limited buses servicing many bto projects. my area at least above 10 bto projects.

2. amenities - nothing much was done to improve despite many btos still coming up. buying food, groceries need to que damn long as limited choices available.

3. some areas/blks is hard to find, wanna call cab or uber they have hard time finding.

4. one way in/out, those who drive everyday jam like siao.

too many selling off, one search at the propertyguru can see way too many.. plus many other bto projects also gonna mop as time goes along..

that area price drops like crazy. luckily i appealed to get it sold before mop before the rest of the crowd join in to sell.

Never use those words in bold as the number 1 criteria when buying a flat.

Actually what's the grants amount we can get? For 4-5k income range couple. Because they keep advertising up to 80k for couple. Can't find a page that state clearly for it
