HDB MOP: 24 BTO Projects You Can Buy That MOP-ed in 2020

5 HDB MOP flats in 2020

With COVID-19 construction delays likely to endure for the rest of the year, you might be a successful BTO flat applicant who is looking to cancel your BTO flat and buy an HDB resale flat. But maybe you're worried about lease decay and want to buy one that's still relatively 'new'. Then you definitely want to check these HDB projects that have just hit their Minimum Occupation Period (MOP).

With the HDB Enhanced CPF Housing Grant (EHG), buying a resale flat has become even more affordable than ever; the new CPF Housing Grant provides first-time resale flat buyers up to $80,000 in grants. What's more, you can also enjoy up to $160,000 if you combine it with the CPF Family Grant and Proximity Housing Grant (PHG).  

So, if you're looking to move into a new home but don't want to wait for a BTO flat, then you might want to take a look at this list of HDB MOP estates that have crossed their HDB MOP period in 2020. We've also included five of our picks that you can consider.

As we cross the 2020 mark, we'll see more HDB developments in Punggol crossing the five-year HDB MOP mark as well. As such, we'll be seeing more and more Punggol HDB developments being listed for sale. Among the Punggol developments that are now eligible for resale, Waterway Brooks is one of those that potential buyers should look out for. 

While the nearest MRT station, Punggol MRT, isn't exactly 'near' (it's 5 minutes by car). However, the good news is that Damai LRT station sits right beside Waterway Brooks, and the station is just a station away from Punggol MRT. For those who drive, Tampines Expressway (TPE) and Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE) are also easily accessible. 

One thing we love about the Punggol is that the area was built with families in mind. It's no wonder why you can see multiple primary schools, childcare centres and pre-schools nearby, including Oasis Primary School, Punggol View Primary School, Bright Kids Pre-School. With the upcoming Punggol Digital District set to be completed in 2023, residents in the area will stand to benefit even further, including job opportunities as well as the new Singapore of Institute Technology University campus.

Apart from that, there are a host of amenities and shopping malls around this waterfront living project. Right across the street are NTUC Fairprice and two coffee shops. Waterway Point, Rivervale Mall and Punggol Plaza are nearby shopping malls. There is also a growing number of cafes in Punggol you can check out

The area isn't short of natural spots too; along the Punggol Waterway, you can take a stroll with your family to get to Punggol Waterway Point and enjoy the benefits of living near nature with your family. Furthermore, Coney Island, Punggol Waterway Park and Lorong Halus Wetland are within close proximity, so there's plenty of recreational things to do with the family.

While Segar Palmview isn't near to an MRT station, it does have Segar LRT to make your travel more convenient. We also like the fact that there are plenty of schools around the area such as West Spring Primary School, Greenridge Primary School, Greenridge Secondary School and Zhenghua Secondary School. The close proximity to Upper Seletar Reservoir is definitely a bonus point for those who love to live close to nature.

Waterway Terrace I and Waterway Terrace II are an HDB Design Award-winning project in Punggol. Unlike typical HDB flats, every block in Punggol Waterway Terrace I and II are interlinked, just like how terraces are linked to one another. The cool façade might even have earned it the nickname of being the Interlace of the HDB world.

Apart from its cool looks, location is also the biggest selling point for this BTO development that has crossed its 5-year HDB MOP. The backyard of Punggol Waterway Terrace I and II is the Punggol Waterway Park where you can spend with your family to take evening walks to enjoy the greenery.

Besides the lovely park in your backyard, you also have the humongous Waterway Point Shopping Mall just across the road to meet your needs. Plus, the Punggol MRT station is also just 500m away and will only take you 6 minutes to reach on foot.
