if i am not wrong, the priority scheme and first timer 2 x chance is to allow them to have a bigger chance to be selected for balloting a queue number. 2nd timer will have 1x chance to be selected into this pool. Those shortlisted pool will be put together and ballot again for a queue number. So 1st timer and priority with double chance does not guarantee a good queue number.

I’m ok with most of the available ones except the repoccessed flats. We all want a “new” flat that’s why we go for sbf and bto right? Old flats can buy in resale market lor. There are some leftovers in cascadia, peak and alot in northarc.

I wonder why not many people go for Clementi? It used to be a very popular estate due to the convenient location and amenities

cus for a matured estate it's not that impressive in terms of location and pricing. and 4rms tend to be more popular.

and like someone said, que numbers are equal be it 1st or 2nd timers. extra chances are jus for the ballot of getting even a number

that's what i told my friend too, you need to be lucky twice.
better start looking through all the unit and shortlist where you want your unit to be in case the most ideal one is taken

Those with families and kids. Should get a smaller queue number since more balloting chances.

this is the gist of what the customer service say i asked previously. hopefully i dun get it wrong. those on priority scheme will get additional ballot chances..... 1st round of ballot is 1st timer and those apply with priority scheme (whether 1st or 2nd timer). 2nd round of ballot is those not successful in the 1st round of ballot for priority scheme for 2nd timer + those not on priority scheme 2nd timer. 2nd round of ballot i think is only 5% for mature estate and 30% for non-mature estate. Those successfully balloted in 1st and 2nd time will then be balloted again for queue number.
