What kind of house you plan to live in or currently living in?
« on: January 13, 2017, 11:22:10 pm »
We have come to the time of our life where buying house is a thing of the present. With that, which one you think would be more worth it? BTO? Normal HDB from gov? EC? Condo? Others?

BTO need to wait 5 years before you can sell unless divorced before that.

35yo single can buy BTO too but only 2-room flats in non-mature estates.

2-room bachelor/bachelorette pad with shag carpet ain't gonna get you anywhere if you stay in Choa Chu Kang ....  :'(

A well-built tree house won't leak laaaaa

I think the chances of leaking for a new HDB BTO is just as high lor..
