The comparison on floor plans between units of the same cost is not a fair comparison. As condo does comes with added facilities outside the unit. A fair discount should be given before choosing the hdb unit for comparison against the condo.

Hey! Thanks for pointing that out! Our basis of comparison here is for those who are considering between a condo or a resale HDB given a fixed budget, hence we kept the cost the same given that with a limited budget, their only choice is between a smaller condo or a bigger resale. The article is also only focusing on floor plan here too so we did not take into account facilities given that it could be a rather subjective discount we’d have to apply too.

The room size should be factored in. For most HDB resale flats, you can comfortably fit a study with a queen sized bed and wardrobe in the common rooms but you will be hard pressed to do the same for condos. You may be able to fit two beds also and this can be a big factor if you have children or parents living with you 🙂
