And you can be assured that 99% are first timers so... Ugh

If I’m not wrong, 95% reserved for first timer and 5% for second in mature estate

please update here when u hear from hdb. i'm interested to know too. thanks!

To answer my own question - Yes, I will be able to submit an application for this SBF exercise. No need to cancel the existing Q number I had for the earlier BTO exercise.

Managed to get this from HDB hotline today

Submitted application for Jurong West/East... fingers crossed.

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?

Well, it doesn’t matter which side of your parent’s address you are using for the MCPS as it will only matter if your ballot queue was chosen during the priority scheme balloting and they have to head down to sign for you that upon the completion of your flat, for 5years, they can’t move or sell off their flat.

So you and your SO have to discuss with both of your side on whose address can you all use and do they have plans to move or sell off the house within this 5 years

yes single 35 above can only apply 2 room flats & for SBF there is a certain amount of flats that are reserved for ppl above age 55. so the chances of getting a flat is rather small.
Yes… i can tell u that the chances r almost equal to ZERO! i had my $10 x 2times makan up by HDB b4 i realise that… u sld try your luck in BTO… and even then i had tried 7 times for 3yrs b4 i finally got a number which is 2X the available units… but i "lucky" that when my turn still got the smaller 36sqm units available so i ll juz pick 1… will most probably TOP by end 2019… the 1st $10 i put in is exactly the week i turn 35… come next yr end 2019 i am already 41!! So u better not waste any time on this SOBF…

The flats our parents currently own are their second purchases already and they are happy to live out their lives here. That's the reason why we want it so badly, to be near our parents.

I was just wondering if we can appeal for more priority in balloting as unlike other couples who have 2 geographical locations where they can go for MCPS, we only have one. But probably not many couples in singapore have the same postal code so let me check with HDB and update back 😂

applying punggol 4rm again~ this is 3rd time...

anyone knows if my Q for previous May SBF, my queue is 400+, but selection is not completed yet, does that mean i will have an extra +1 ballot chance for Nov SBF?

As i saw that after 2 unsuccessful application, there will be +1 ballot chance.

Also, will MCP scheme increase the % chance also?

tolong tolong give me small number this time
