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.

I’m going to share my experience in buying a resale HDB flat because I find that there is currently no one writing about how you go about buying a HDB resale flat out there on the internet.

At some point in time you may want to decide to buy a resale HDB flat. And if you are reading this, it is most likely you have no idea where to begin.

When I started out, the first step I took was to search in property listing sites like Property Guru, STProperty,etc. I bet you are doing the same now! Wrong!

Before one even looks at these property classified site, you should get your HLE first. Yes, HLE stands for HDB Loan Eligibility
