If the application rate is more than 1.0 means more difficult to get a queue number right?

Sigh. Only 2nd day and I'm giving up.

They should give 1st timer 100% and 2nd timer onwards 0%.

I got another question.

How come some 3 room flats ceiling 6k and 12k in the same estate?

What's the difference apart from the ceiling income?

It's harder but doesn't mean you couldn't get a number.. Even after you have gotten your que number you might not get the flat that you have shortlisted.. some flats have been on SBF list for few cycles already

precisely. HDB's motive for SBF and ROBF is to get rid of unwanted or repossessed units. so why charge people more for it?
If they don't charge higher, people will take the first phase of BTO for granted. Why apply for BTO when sobf is the same? Other than getting better units, there's no other benefits. Hence the price difference as well.

its the same for all projects public or private, reason is that the people who bought at launch get a cheaper price because they have to wait longer. The longer the wait the cheaper it would be. Conversely, the closer to the date of completion, the shorter the wait, the cost would be higher. If the units don't get chosen during this SBF, it will likely be more expensive the next time round
based on this logic,

if say a 1st level ground floor die die nobody take for many rounds of SOBF,

10 years later, it will sell for $1m ah?

haha if you want to extrapolate until like that then yes lor but obviously if you have common sense then no lah, valuation got limit also what.

if someone is desperate for immediate housing, i bet you the 1st level ground floor unit that is immediately available will be a lot more attractive compared to a top floor unit that is only available 4 years later for the same price. different people got different needs

Generally the timeline is 2.5 months after closing date.
