If there’s one thing that continues to feel more and more expensive for Singaporeans across the country, it’s probably property prices.
And it seems like that continues to be the case even for Housing Development Board (HDB) resale flats.
Based on a flash report carried out by 99.co and SRX in May this year, the prices of HDB resale flats have increased for the 23rd month in a row.
Just in May alone, prices rose by 0.5%.
On the other hand, the report also found that resale volume fell by 5.1% in May as compared to April, meaning that the demand for resale flats is still higher than the supply.
According to the same report, 2,156 resale flats were transacted in May according to 99.co.
42.4% of sales came from 4-room flats, 25.3% came from 5-room flats, 24.4% came from 3-room flats, 6.3% came from executive flats and the rest came from 1-room, 2-room and multi-generational flats.
Price Increase in Resale Flats: Highest in Four-Room Flats
The overall price increase in HDB resale flats as compared to May 2021 was 11.0%, with four-room flats having the greatest rise at an 11.9% increase.
Executive and three-room flats also saw a price increase of 11.5%, while the price of 5-room flats increased by 10.9%.

In terms of median resale prices, resale flats were the most expensive in Bukit Timah (S$840,000), Bishan (S$738,000) and Queenstown (S$706,000) according to transactions compiled up till 6 June.
In contrast, resale flats were the cheapest in Ang Mo Kio ($430,000), Bedok ($442,500), and Yishun ($450,000) according to overall median resale prices.
