HDB VS CONDO – NETIZEN SAYS NOT MUCH DIFFERENCE, NEIGHBOURS ARE THE SAME

Are you team HDB or team EC?

New homeowners, did you opt for an EC or HDB? Personally, I’d want an EC because of the convenience of the facilities, and security and some say it’s a potential investment if it’s in a good location. Also, I guess to a certain extent the prestige? IDK haha. Since I grew up in a 4 room HDB I always see EC as something upscale and back then us kids in neighborhood schools will always go ‘WOAHHH’ when our classmate stays in a condO.

The downside however is the size of the unit. For the same price, you can get something way way way bigger in a matured estate like Clementi, Queenstown. I’ve seen property videos on youtube and the size seems underwhelming.

HDB is definitely the more affordable option if you factor in unit space and location BUT the resale market now is insane. Yes, facilities wise it’s not that accessible but hey, do you really use the facilities often though? BTO is out of the question for some of us who missed the boat or waiting for queue number still ( ='( ).

Which do you guys choose in the end and why? For context my GF and I are earning a combined income of 10.5k and we’re both 29/27. Considering our options long term haha.

Netizens’ comments

  • Not into EC, not much difference from HDB because essentially you get the same type of neighbours
  • Totally agree on the same type of neighbours. For this reason, also avoid entry level condos in HDB estates.
  • In my previous condo, my neighbour used the common corridor as his carpentry workshop and wood chips and dust came into my unit.
  • Team whatever can afford comfortably
