HDB introduces new package deal for BTO flat buyers

HDB offers doors and sanitary fittings under latest option


The Housing Board has introduced a doors-and-sanitary fittings package for Build-To-Order (BTO) flats launched from September.

The package costs between $3,190 and $4,330, depending on the flat type.

Home owners say this scheme goes some way to address concerns about the cost of the HDB's doors-only package, which costs about $3,000 on average for four- and five-room flats.

Under HDB's Optional Component Scheme (OCS), buyers can opt to pay for extra finishes such as flooring and internal doors. They pick their options when selecting their flat at HDB Hub, and can use their Central Provident Fund or mortgage loan for this.
