9 Cheapest Freehold Condos in Singapore Under $1 Million (2023)
With private property prices at an all-time high, if you mention the words ‘freehold condo’, you might suddenly see heads turn in your direction, followed by a muted "Wah, condos are getting so pricey".
There are three types of condos in Singapore:
  • Freehold
  • 99-year leasehold
  • 999-year leasehold
In this article, we’ll focus on the broad categories of freehold – including 999-year leasehold, which is a long time – and leasehold condos.
Freehold condos, though fewer than leasehold condos, are less of a rare Pokémon than you may think. You just need to know where to look. Whether you’re an HDB upgrader on the lookout for a good deal or someone who is on the hunt for an investment property, we’ve put a list of freehold condos in Singapore under $1 million to help you.

More FAQs About Freehold Condos in Singapore

Executive Condominiums (ECs) are developed and sold by private developers but are subsidised by the Government. While they become fully privatised after 10 years, ECs are only 99-year leasehold properties.

Yes. Foreign buyers can purchase both freehold and leasehold private condos in Singapore. However, they’ll need to pay Additional Buyer’s Stamp Duty (ABSD).

The price really varies, depending on various factors such as size, location, etc. In this article, we’ve selected units below $1 million, and we’ve seen that some of them cost as low as $600,000 (about the price of an HDB resale unit in a mature estate), but those are typically studios or 1-bedroom units.

It really depends on your priorities and how much money you have to spare. Make sure to do your sums else you could end up paying more than you can afford.
