Singapore Property News This Week #213

Minister for National Development Khaw Boon Wan said that priority schemes have been enhanced to help Singaporeans who want to stay near their parents. Khaw acknowledges that more Singaporeans are looking for flats near those of their extended families in mature estates. To help this group of buyers, the ministry will look into improving current measures. Data from MND showed that 24% of build-to-order flat applicants have applied under one of the ministry’s priority schemes. Those who have applied under these schemes are more likely to obtain a flat. Khaw said more flats will be launched in mature estates to meet the needs of Singaporeans who wish to stay near their parents. Not only so, grants will also be provided to help first-timer families who wish to buy resale flats to live together or close to their parents or married children.
