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.


I think the age of the 5 room flat would factor a lot as it can range from a fresh 5 year old 5 room flat to a 40 year old 5 room flat. The price and future value would differ greatly then.

Personally i moved from a 3 room BTO to a 20 year old 5 room flat (1300+ sqft) to move nearer to my in-laws at a great price (about 40% more than what i sold my 3 room BTO flat for). A condo of the same size would be 3 times more expensive.
