Authorities flagged two S$2M HDB flats listings as misleading, unrealistic asking price

Earlier this month, Singapore authorities flagged two HDB flats priced at S$2 million as misleading with ‘unrealistic asking price.’

One listing, marketed as a jumbo flat, comprised two adjacent five-room flats in Sengkang. The other, located in Toa Payoh, had an “unrealistic asking price.”

The listing on the PropertyGuru platform, claiming to be for a 2,400 sq ft jumbo flat in Block 314C Anchorvale Link with six bedrooms and four bathrooms, was deemed “misleading” by the authorities, as there are no such flats in the block.

HDB, along with the Ministry of National Development (MND) and the Council for Estate Agencies (CEA) further addressed the recent listing of a 5-room Design, Build and Sell Scheme (DBSS) flat at block 138B Lorong 1A Toa Payoh.

Priced at S$2 million, the listing stands nearly half a million dollars above the highest transacted price in the area.

The joint statement acknowledged that the agent who listed the flat had promoted it as a value-for-money proposition.

Nonetheless, despite the unit’s attractive attributes, the three government bodies highlighted that many property experts deem this assertion unrealistic.

All this fanfare and hullabaloo !!!

Can’t wait for it to be the norm, and no further excessive coverage or that it’ll be great for the estate, blah, blah, bleedin blah !!!

Talking about norms, what’s with the COE’s eh. Wish it’d get to the 200k mark swiftly, and at the very least, … attempt to keep up with the runaway public housing !!!

To keep up with the above, … it stands to reason that all utilities and charges, along with parking and petrol should and must rise too !!!

Read a couple of weeks ago that 4 out of a 100 sgs are millionaires..
Trublus or NCs…

Who are all these Millionaires affording these Million Dollar Flats. Anyone has details – bearing in mind HDB has limits on income eligibility caps.
