HDB has launched 6,753 flats for sale under the May 2019 public housing sales exercise, it announced in a press release on May 22.
There will be 3,485 units under the Build-To-Order (BTO) scheme, spread across four projects -- three in the non-mature towns of Tengah and Woodlands, and one in the mature town of Kallang/Whampoa. Citizens will get to choose from flats varying from two-room Flexi to five-room.

Under the Sale of Balance Flats (SBF) exercise, 3,268 units are released for sale across various estates. Flats for selection comprise 535 units of two-room flexi, 432 units of three-room, 1,384 units of four-room, 799 units of five-room, 111 units of 3Gen and seven units of executive flats.
Although the majority of flats offered under the SBF exercise are reserved for first-timer families, first-timer singles can apply for a two-room Flexi flat in non-mature towns.
To help young couples make their housing plan in advance, this is the first public housing sale where HDB has cut the balloting time for BTO flats, from six weeks to three weeks, as well as announced BTO projects six months in advance, compared to the usual three months.
