Since it was set up in 1960, Singapore's Housing & Development Board has carried out successful housing projects to provide Singaporeans with quality homes and living environments. The HDB is Singapore's public housing authority and comes under the purview of Ministry of National Development. The HDB has created several flourishing towns in Singapore where a range of commercial recreational and social facilities and amenities have been provided for the benefit of residents.
Apart from meeting needs and aspirations of the residents, HDB's housing policies and schemes are formulated with the view of creating racial harmony, stronger family ties, care for the elderly and those suffering from financial problems.
A vast majority of Singaporeans (more than 80%) live in the housing estates developed by the HDB. Most of the developed towns have schools, supermarkets, clinics, food centres and recreational facilities for the convenience of residents. Some of the popular neighborhood estates are the Tampines Town Centre, Clementi, Woodlands, and Bukit Batok.
Housing estates have three-room, four-room, five-room and executive flats. Private housing options are also available, such as apartments, condominiums, studios, and bungalows. Individuals can share rent and opt for a private apartment.
while looking for a house, it is wise to first plan your budget, then choose a location that will be good for you, make a note of the facilities available in that area and if it has efficient public transport.
