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.
are u saying the good units are snatched up during BTO so pple should be charged during SBF for the leftover undesirable ones?

no he isn't saying that. people who buy at launch are locked in, opportunity cost is there without getting the flat immediately, hence the price is lower. there are also risks that is involved in buying a flat early in advance, especially with stringent conditions that come with HDB flats.

HDB or developers are not charging a premium for leftover units, they are charging you for the time that you "save" waiting for a new flat. if 2 flats of the same quality and location costs $500k, one is available now and one is available 3 years later, which will you choose (assuming that you can move in right away)? my guess is most people would choose the immediately available one, and developers (including HDB) have priced their flats to match this demand.

Are there different levels for rate of chances for the various priority schemes? For example, if u under PPS, chances are higher, or are these schemes lumped together with no difference?

5% is really insanely low for second timers who need to upgrade due to kids.

If that isn't good enough, you'll see the same unit appear over a few rounds of SBF. That'll make you vaporize .

No harm to try, as long as you try, there is a chance.

We oso first time apply for the SBF May 2017 K/W, we only have choice units abt 20 yet our Q is 50+, we thought we sure cannot get it, in the end, we still make it.

So dun give up hope, so long as you try, there is still a possibility.

Jia You and All the best !

I have a HLE applied in August which will expire in January 2018

Since the result will only be out in Feb 2018 will I need to apply for a new HLE in Feb 2018 ?

If yes , then the max loan is base on my HLE loan amount during application or at the point of flat booking ?

No need to apply in feb... best is to apply only when u know the dates for ur selection.. ur hle needs to be valid until key collection.
Apply 3 weeks before unit selection, more than enough time, unless u wan to appeal for more then a bit more time will be better.
Since it’s gona be a new application, ur loan amount will be based on the documents u have provided for the new application.
U need to have a valid hle when booking ur flat.
