Correct me if I'm wrong. Increasing the grant actually negates the effect of a shorter loan tenor on aged flats?

Resale properties also face more competition from new btos and new ecs.

Sigh, I bought my 3rm resale after reaching 35 years old in 2017, all thanks to the income ceiling back during that time, was not eligible for 2rm BTO
Now I’m seeing this news, sigh
