First timer. Also targetting low enough number to select. Haha. Also using mcps

You go fr Tengah also quite a long wait time isnt it?
Yea Tengah will be a much longer wait, and no guarantee of a good q number judging from the high applicants now. But it gives us a little more time to save up, get married, etc. Maybe should just hoot SBF first and think later lol.

I read from a 2015 SBF blog post that the wait for the ballot results is 90 days = 3 months... Is it still the same now?

P.S. No more appealing because it seems like so far hardly anyone online has gotten results from appealing for ballot, only appeals for loans/ finances work leh.

My fiance and I have a special circumstance which we will try to appeal... Basically, our parents stay in the same block. The SOBF we are looking at is within 1km.

Because both set of parents share the same postal code, our eligible radius for the MCPS is only 4km instead of about 4km x 2 😂. Does anyone have previous experiences to share for this issue?
Very curious how y’all met! Are you dating your neighbour? Were you childhood sweethearts?

I am sure there are many HDB dwellers that are very contented to stay in their flats that are bought in the 70s/80s forever. However this year is really a turning point when government has announced not all HDB flats will be eligible for VERS or SERS.

Now here comes the unintended consequences. Due to practical reasons HBD owners with aging flats will start to ballot for second BTO flats thus creating a 'false' demand. The whole idea is to get a new flat with a fresh lease not due to upgrade or downgrade.

BTO exercises will continue to be oversubscribed in the next few years for sure. Prices for HDB resale flats with less than 60 year lease will continue to be depressed except for those near CCR.

I gave up for BTO launch. Just applied for SBF in mature estate.
Hopefully my 3rd time balloting will get a queue number, even better small number.

Luckily can apply for MCPS even though my parents live just beside the estate that I'm applying, but still near.
Also so happy can also apply PPS (Parenthood Priority Scheme).. maybe with this two schemes will help us to get a roof over our head.

Good luck to all as well.

Anyway it was such a coincidence because when my fiance and I were surveying the empty units, another couple came to see the same unit too 😂 then we faster siam haha.
That happened to me and my fiancee the last time for May 2018 SBF!
can you enter the empty flat for viewing?

Of course not. But you can see the surroundings and guesstimate the bearings of the unit.

question- I applied under MCPS, but after applying the summary page shows Public Scheme under Scheme. Is this by default?
please update here when u hear from hdb. i'm interested to know too. thanks!
I was at HDB yesterday and clarified as i've applied under MCPS too.
It's considered under MCPS - Public Scheme.

So the MCPS is already factored in once you've selected it and filled in your parents particulars.

By standing at the corridor and looking at the floor plan you are holding, you should be able to figure out where the rooms or windows will be facing etc.
