I have realised the Nov launch of melody spring is more expensive than Aug launch. The differences is about $10k to $18. I am wondering why?

The Nov launch flats in Melody Spring has flooring, doors and bathroom fittings built in. Whereas we have to choose the "optional component scheme" and pay several thousand more if we wanted the flooring, doors etc. Still, the price difference is higher than the cost of the optional components.

I've heard that the PPVC construction method costs more...

I had assumed that the shorter waiting time projects launched in Nov 2018 are using PPVC, my mistake.

I guess the slightly higher price is for the faster completion time...

They built melody spring in advance. Pieces by pieces.. Not by ppvc.

I mean u r right.. aug launch comes without the finish of flooring for living and bedrooms and fittings.Hence is cheaper.. Nov launch comes with flooring and fitting, so more expensive.

Quite uneventful actually…
• signed a few documents
• made arrangement for refund of $2000 option fee
• submitted an application for CPF payment - 10% down payment

If you use a token to log onto Singpass, do remember to bring it - this is for the application for CPF payment (10% down payment).
