Married couples busy taking care of children. Singles got more free time.
How many % of the 522 2rm flexi is reserved for Singles?
Tengah (Plantation Grove), 1.6x, still ok.

Around 70% for singles, 30% for elderly. Based on this year's trend, 2-rm for singles is 2x - 4x
I feel this Tengah 1st batch is not ideal for elderly. They have to suffer through all the construction dust and noise due to future developments over 10 years at least.

Difference in area for balcony or no balcony is only 3sqm. So if the width is 1.5m,length only 2m. slightly longer than an average person's height I guess.
I feel that hdb and ura should be aligned. So if width is 1.5m and standard length of living room is 3m, then area should be 4.5m. That being said, it means total area is bigger and more expensive. Or same total area but smaller interior area.

You can apply for HLE after you get a queue number.

Agreed...dun apply for hle immediately after u submit bto application...

E.g applied before for aug2017 bto and hle at same time, by the time my appt comes in Mar 2018, the hle already expired (6mths validity).... got to apply again..

HLE will typically get approved around 2 weeks after u submit.

So dun need so gan cheong.. see your q number first before u apply HLE..

Hope it helps

Not likely. We are not in need of a flat immediately. I have a few friends who applied for BB SBF, but all rejected. The Chinese population has hits the quota, so not very hopeful.

Will you consider Bukit Batok SBF? There are quite a few units available right opposite Tengah Plantation.

Same here. BF and I decided on Tengah because we've always wanted a quieter location that's closer to nature. The fact that it was designed to support smart home systems was a plus since we planned on getting one for our home anyway.

Had expected less interest in the location due to the fact that it's a new estate that's also quite a distance from the MRT.

But considering that there will be a BTO in JW in Feb that's much closer to malls and the train station, I wonder if there's a chance of some applicants dropping out to try for JW instead.

same thought here. Just want to get something cheap. Who knows this is the most expensive project for this Nov BTO and yet still attract such a big crowd! Just dont know what is the reason. Probably the West got lots of hidden gems!

Yup, I originally thought Tengah is less popular for sure. Sigh!

humble opinion,

1) 400-480k for a 5 room flat in a total new town without basic amenities for the first 5 years of living is expensive.

2) Does that mean the suppose to huat plots (tengah town plots) would be 500-650k for 5 rm flat?
