Does that work for BTO too?

Actually Im hoping we are not eligible cos his income can easily afford a condo. But he is thrifty and my family also keep telling me to get a HDB

if both of your income add together is over a certain amount, then you will have to purchase either a EC or Condo

can visit the website for more info  ;)

I'm a simple guy. Got my own room fully paid by myself is an achievement liao, be it HDB or Condo. HDB isn't that bad la actually. We can't choose how the facade of our house looks like, but renovations is all within our control. Any home renovated nicely to your taste would be a great home. Cheers yea.
