Not sure if i heard correctly or not, my neighbour's son who's gotten a flat in 488 received a HDB letter recently; something about the key collection, but he has problem getting the bank loan approval, which is why he has yet to make the trip to HDB..
The exact details I'm not too sure though, which is also I'm curious if anyone of you here received the same?
well, for me now is a good time to do research on what kind of feel u would like to have for your house n to start short listing the IDs you would like to meet up and discuss.
shortlisting the furniture u plan to buy. look at how other ppl did up their houses, itz actually quite interesting research
Its better to get a few quotes from different IDs to compare what they give and how much they charge for their materials. I did a compare btw 2 IDs...the first quoted me within my budget and their design were really impressive...was a bit tempted to sign up with them when they throw in 1 sys 3 + 1 single split aircon for mi... but when i see the second quotation i realised they quote me cheaper with abt the same materials (design different of coz)..imagine a cupboard quote almost 1 k cheaper with the same material..Heng nvr commit first ar...if not kana 'tok' oso duno...With the amt i save from the 2nd IDs i could have buy more things den the 2 air cons...
So the point is....take our time...compare...tok to the IDs to see if u click with him/her...once comfortable and quotation is gd...den sign up with them...we have the time...the bargain power is on our side...
Actually,If you have noticed.... the price of the split aircon or other "free gifts" has always been included in the packages...
Try asking them what if you do not wan the "free gifts".... they will tell you... "oh its flexible... we can always deduct the $$ off from the packages".... dun wan free gift can get $$ off??? haha... where got such good bargain!!??
some IDs do have cheaper carpentry but more ex on stone stuff while some have the opposites.
like Kwoni said, got to find the correct ID that u r comfortable with
haha there r no such things as freebies. no free lunch in the world.
car or electronics also the same, no freebies. what they gave u is always included in the price unless u pay n sign the dotted line n u tell em to include more freebies without additional charges haha
dropped by the place yesterday around 9pm...
seems like any tom, dick or harry can just
go up and view the flat of ur choice.
even though the place undergoing works,
most of the fencing have been removed
and left with the orange lining where
u can just easily crossover & go up.
it was so bright as all the lighting already up!
Thanks for the photos!! That will really help us to visualize and plan our designs in advance! I noticed that the bathrooms' tiles design like different from what HDB's showroom, in the photos were red/blue stripes?
