Ryan is an old school print journalist gone digital. He's lived in almost every type of housing in Singapore, from flats to landed homes. Over the past 18 years, he's been a content developer for companies large and small, a co-founder in an education business, and sometimes a voice on the radio. He also spends too much time and money on painting little plastic soldiers.


Any chance for Geylang appreciation? Is it a good buy?

Hi Jamie. Getting a BTO is really pure luck. If it meets your objectives and you’re not in an urgent need to get a new home, then you should just try. BTOs in mature estates such as these tend to appreciate well into the end of its MOP, though of course we can’t say without the pricing released.


In addition to what’s written, there needs to mention Bishan BTO being right beside the CTE. It’s not even anywhere near the central area of Bishan. In fact i’d say this is one of the worst offerings in this batch. Better to wait for the November release.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, sean.

Still got a couple more years to go before I can BTO, but looking forward to future articles like this. Any idea if there is a map with future BTO sites for the next 5ish years out there?

Hey! Thanks for sharing your thoughts! There’s currently no publicly-available information on BTO sites 5+ years into the future. The only information available would come from HDB, which contains the past and future launches – but it won’t be so far out.
