its the same for all projects public or private, reason is that the people who bought at launch get a cheaper price because they have to wait longer. The longer the wait the cheaper it would be. Conversely, the closer to the date of completion, the shorter the wait, the cost would be higher. If the units don't get chosen during this SBF, it will likely be more expensive the next time round

But why unwanted units will increase price too?

precisely. HDB's motive for SBF and ROBF is to get rid of unwanted or repossessed units. so why charge people more for it?

Pretty sure they are not "unwanted", those units are there cause people last min change their minds, break up etc. Look at the mature estates numbers, they are always oversubscribed by quite a bit. People are willing to pay more if you can get your house in 1 year compared to 3-4 years.

Buy SOBF got many surprises cuz u duno what you are getting.

Only buy if u need a flat urgently or if u can't wait for abnormal BTO to be built.

Usually cater to those people who got married or have children and desperately looking for a place which dun mind noise, low floor, near mcp, above bin chute, fengshui rejects or sun units

For many it's a good deal cuz they are in a hurry. If still got time then apply BTO slowly choose loh

If the application rate is more than 1.0 means more difficult to get a queue number right?

Sigh. Only 2nd day and I'm giving up.

They should give 1st timer 100% and 2nd timer onwards 0%.

I got another question.

How come some 3 room flats ceiling 6k and 12k in the same estate?

What's the difference apart from the ceiling income?

It's harder but doesn't mean you couldn't get a number.. Even after you have gotten your que number you might not get the flat that you have shortlisted.. some flats have been on SBF list for few cycles already

If they don't charge higher, people will take the first phase of BTO for granted. Why apply for BTO when sobf is the same? Other than getting better units, there's no other benefits. Hence the price difference as well.
