A sum of 1.521K public housing have gotten sold in the available booking system since its kick off during 06/19, announced MND Tan Kiat How at Parliament on 2Mar.
He was replying Member of Parliament Gan Thiam Poh who inquired about the quantity of HDB public housing sold under the open reservation program after its kick off.
The open reservation program helps private housing hunters “to secure a public home over the internet, plus attain their flat choice appointment on a first-come-first-served manner, and that can possibly be as early as the next operating day”.
Tan reported a total amount of 46 two room Flexi public housing, 273 three room public housing\, 601 four room public housing, Five hundred and Ninety-seven five room/ Three Gen public housing, and also 4 Exec flats have already gotten booked since 22 February 2K21 under the open reservation program.
Gan at the same time questioned if HDB would take into consideration throwing in an additional number of public housing extra often as well as raise the number of public housing in the market within the system.
To this, Tan gave out that HDB, at present, “puts on hold open reserving twice a yr in order to infuse a fresh stock of public housing. Most of flats supplied within the release scheduling arised from the supply of public housing that are still unselected on the twice-yearly SBF routines”.
Tan add on that Housing and Development Board has been uncovering methods to present much more flats with available reservation.
HDB, as an example, has ceased the Re-Offer of Balance Flat routines since Feb’20 to ensure extra unselected flats coming from the SBF activities could be provided easily using release choosing, he said.
