Amid the backdrop of rising HDB prices, one fact has begun to stand out: resale flats in non-mature estates have to “narrow the gap”. One of the transaction records for non-mature flats, in March 2021 was in Punggol; this was when a five-room flat sold for $910,000. In fact, there have been 41 transactions in non-mature estates this year, that have gone beyond $800,000. Here’s a look at what’s going on: Town Flat Type Size Model Lease Commenced Price Punggol Five room 147 Premium Apartment Loft 2012 $910,000 Hougang Executive 138 Apartment 1997 $892,888 Choa Chu Kang Executive 182 Premium Maisonette 1998 $890,000 Hougang Executive 135 Apartment 1997 $888,000 Hougang Executive 146 Maisonette 1992 $885,000 Bukit Batok Executive 165 Maisonette 1997 $880,000 Hougang Executive 156 Maisonette 1992 $880,000 Bukit Batok Executive 165 Maisonette 1997 ... » Learn More about Will we see million-dollar HDB flats in non-mature estates soon?

Resale flat prices are at their highest in around eight years, and it’s painful for first-time flat buyers. In this Covid-19 environment, with high risks of construction delays, picking between BTO and resale is the proverbial “rock and a hard place” scenario. However, have we developed a skewed perspective of how big the price difference really is? Here’s a look at how the price gap between BTO and resale HDB flats has changed over the years: How did we derive the data for the following? The following is based on transaction data from HDB. From here, we derived the average resale flat price for the given year and flat type. We then compared it to the average BTO price for the estate and flat type, in the given year. As some of the information – such as BTO prices for some areas and years – are patchy, there is invariably some room for error. More recent data will be more accurate, as HDB does show the likely sale price during a launch exercise (but the information for past ... » Learn More about BTO-to-resale price gap: Are they always the same?

Migrant workers should not be transported in goods vehicles, said the Assistant Secretary-General of the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC), Melvin Yong. Yong, in a May 9 blog post , highlighted a "perfectly viable alternative" for transporting migrant workers: Buses with seat belts. The Road Traffic Act currently prohibits lorries and goods vehicles from being used for passenger transport except in the case of ferrying workers between their lodgings and worksites. This issue of companies ferrying migrant workers in the back of lorries has been popping up over the years, most recently prompted by a traffic accident on the Pan Island Expressway which involved 17 migrant workers. Two of them subsequently passed away. Yong added that the NTUC is working with the Building Construction and Timber Industries Employees’ Union (BATU), the Singapore Contractors Association Ltd (SCAL), and relevant government agencies to push for the implementation of separate transport ... » Learn More about NTUC Assistant Sec-Gen: Lorries should transport goods, not people

In early September 2021, the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) and Land Transport Authority (LTA) awarded the pilot tender for more than 600 electric vehicles (EV) charging points in 200 public car parks to two consortiums - the first being ComfortDelGro Engineering and its partner ENGIE South East Asia, and another to Primech A&P with its partners Charge+, Sunseap Group and Oyika. The former group will build 470 EV charging points in the Central, Eastern and Western regions of Singapore with the latter taking care of 150 points in the North and North-Eastern regions. With a national target to deploy 40,000 (public) and 20,000 (private) charging points by 2030 (part of the Singapore Green Plan ), this will be the first of many tenders to come for sure. This would definitely benefit homeowners living near these stations, particularly electric vehicle owners or those planning to buy electric vehicles (eg. Teslas). By 2030 and beyond, EV-ready lots in open-air, underground and ... » Learn More about How 60,000 electric vehicle (EV) charging points in car parks may affect property demand (and Tesla sales)
