SINGAPORE: The Nautilus@Punggol is the Housing and Development Board's (HDB) latest Build-To-Order (BTO) project and the first in that area.
Prices for its 4- and 5-room units are about 20 to 30 per cent lower than the resale flats in that vicinity, signalling generous subsidies for these new flats.
The Nautilus@Punggol will have eight blocks comprising some 520 flats. Of these, nearly 80 per cent are 4-room flats and the rest are 5-room apartments.
HDB said the prices of the new flats are affordable for first-time buyers.
Giving a comparison of resale flats about seven years old in Punggol, HDB said 4-room resale flats are currently going at between S$306,000 and S$350,000, while 4-room flats at The Nautilus will be sold at between S$228,000 and S$274,000.
Likewise, The Nautilus' 5-room flats are priced in the range of S$305,000 to S$357,000 against the resale price range of S$368,000 to S$428,888 …

The top design will be announced and exhibited in November, with the winning team contracted to execute its masterplan. The Housing Board plans to offer the waterfront homes by mid-2010.

Meanwhile, asked if prices of new HDB flats will come down, since those of resale Punggol flats have fallen in recent weeks, Senior Minister of State for National Development Grace Fu said:
"For every project that is launched, we will take the cue from the market. So for every batch that is coming up, if the curent market has adjusted, we will basically adjust the selling price accordingly."

PRICES of resale HDB flats in Punggol have fallen in recent weeks to the point where they are now around the same level as new ones launched just two months ago.
Normally new flats are markedly cheaper than resale ones as the Housing Board 'deeply discounts' their price to prevailing market values as a form of subsidy to first-time home buyers.
But the worsening recession, fragile job market and weak property sector have closed this 'discount gap' to virtually nothing in some cases and is making resale homes as attractive as new ones.
