I asked myself this question probably a billion times in my sleep – Should I dive in and buy a resale HDB unit?
I have no definitive answer here but I can provide you with my opinions.
As of the date of this writing, the price of
a any HDB flat is at its highest in history. When I was hunting a resale unit myself back in July 2012, everybody was telling me “it is too expensive to buy now”, or “the COV is crazy if you buy now”.
Now, looking back, I got it cheap when I bought the unit in November 2012. The prices are still climbing.
