This is the funniest question I’ve seen in this thread lol. Different area different selection date...’u think hdb will stop their process to cater for 1 or 2 special ppl? If they do that, others will complain too.. might as well don’t set any procedures lor.

@zidmosby, could it be due to ethnic quota issue?
It could be but.. I jumped ahead of 400+ people out of which some should have the same ethnicity as me and the last served number is still 92?

However my selection at that time started in April and I got an appointment invite in July. So it also could mean a large drop out at that point of time too since it was almost 3 months.

Is it possible for HDB to contact unsuccessful applicants to be called for selection as there are far too many dropouts / ethnic quota?

Nope. They wun bother to do that. They will just let it roll to sbf if it is bto, or ROF if it is a sbf.

Can I just check on the rationale behind have 12 months of CPF contribution before being considered for additional housing grant? Don’t ppl who do not have at least 12 continuous month of CPF contribution more needy of that grant? Haha

hi (future) neighbours!
Gotten 1x/25 with mcps
4th attempt in getting a flat from hdb.
Congrats... I am a bit peiseh to say that is was our 1st try as we were looking at resale over at cantonment. All the sellers were asking for COV therefore we decided to try SBF. Was contemplating on 4 or 5 rooms. But i didnt like the layout of the 4 rooms so we decide on try on 5 rooms. we are just super lucky.

I think you should head down to the site to check for evening sun if it will be a problem to you.
Personally would place ghim moh options last as it is far from mrt station with much lesser facilities than the other projects.

Commonwealth has great location but i rem it is low-floor

Forfar is near to mrt station so noise, privacy MAY be an issue (have not stood at the site personally to hear the noise for myself but i definitely can see the windows of forfar heights flats that face the mrt track)

Skyparc is further away from the train station (around 12 mins walk?) & some units may have evening sun. Same for dawson vista project, except it is nearer to the mrt station.
Aren’t the skyparc and Dawson vista north south facing? There should be very minimal sun

Yes the 4 rooms had one bedroom beside the living room.
I did some ID work previously and that is aircon nightmare layout.
I also wanted open kitchen concept which the 5 rooms layout is just nice.


you really lucked out!
my bf and i were looking at resale too but it is so much more expensive as we wanted to live near the parents and some of the flats are pretty old :/

i did not study other 4RMs that are 83/88sqm but I thought the floor plans for the queenstown projects are pretty interesting; some of them had one of the bedrooms beside the living room to reduce the corridor.

Just curious, how many of you applied for SoBF because you want a flat that's ready this year, 2019 or 2020?

You need to submit from your date of application for the HLE. That means if you're submitting a HLE application now, you will need Nov 17, Dec, 17 and Jan 18 payslips
