Thank u! Gotten a selection date, 17 May, from HDB. Apparently, they send out selection dates one month ahead of the selection date. Hopefully got some units left tt we dont mind having.
You skipped your appointment too? I thought you willing to take #2 units.

Sigh.. mine was 4rm... and on 16 May, all units taken, even #2 units. I was quite shocked to see tt cos' we prepared the documents for the appt to select. This time may apply for 5rm instead.

Just wait for recession. Then u one person apply Nia and only one to choose what u want.
Actually recession will have more ppl applying, cos' new flats are still cheaper than most resale.

Woah nice! Thank you!
Just apply this May SBF if this time round you didn't manage to get the unit of your choice!

This is my 4th time applying with MCPS + First-timer. Previous 3 times either exceeded the amount of units available or not given a queue number. This time round got lucky with a better number.

so MCPS + First-timer is fake one?

I believe this merely gives me additional ballot chances. It's really pure luck... even a second timer can get a queue number 1 with just 1 ballot chance.

4 units only, ok la. Did you see any units better than your current selection? This round no West Crest 5R.
I guess the units supplied are all relatively the same so what you get is highly dependent on your queue number. Some are even repossessed flats. Apart from West Crest, Iíd prolly land myself in West Rock. After Skypeak, West Crest is one of the earlier blocks to TOP hence the units left. Which one are you eyeing for this time round?

Anyone got an appointment for key collection already? How long did it take for grant approval?
Yes, booked my unit on 14th May and 2 days later received my key collection date scheduled just a week later. My unit has already TOP, 5 room had no grant and HLE was all approved beforehand.

I see... actually i didnt include a BTO n 2 ROF applications...

Feb 18 BTO Teck Whye Vista no number
May 18 SBF no number
Aug 18 ROF Q number 2x available flats
Nov 18 SBF Q number 1.6x available flats
Feb 19 ROF Q number 2x available flats
May 19 SBF.... hopefully number is within available flats.

Even with near parents priority, didnt work for us at all.
I think ultimately it depends on your luck. My fiance and I got really lucky as itís our first time applying, during Nov 18 SOB exercise with the near parent scheme. Managed to get a number within the supplied units. Hopefully your luck is better this time round! 😀🤞🏼 @terrorblade and you too!

This is bound to happen especially with a balloting system unlike resale whereby itís an open market. The unit we wanted got selected just 30 mins before us and we had to quickly relook all the options we had left or to forgo our appointment.
