Hougang project most popular in August BTO exercise

Contrary to expectations, new Housing Board flats in Tampines were not the top draw in this month's Build-to-Order (BTO) launch, which closed at midnight.

Instead, Buangkok Woods in Hougang was the most popular project, with 4.4 applicants for each three-room flat and 4.3 for each four-room flat as of 5pm yesterday.

There were 1.3 to 2.3 applicants for each available unit in Tampines, depending on flat type. This was also generally lower than application rates in the non-mature estates of Yishun and Sembawang.



This is not really true since Tampines had the most flats released and they were still over-subscribed.  I think it is more a case of HDB foreseeing the demand for Tampines better than other estates.


*Below is the link to the finalised application ratios.
