Since the end of the circuit breaker, there has been an uptick in interest for larger homes, particularly for older resale HDB flats with larger floor areas.
For the whole of 2020, there were 5,984 5-room units sold, which was 10.3% higher than the year before. Meanwhile, 3-room resale flats declined by 0.7% in the same period, making it the first annual decline since 2015.
According to experts, the stronger preference for larger resale flats is brought on by the working from home culture as well as changing lifestyle needs caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
So, if you’re on the lookout to upgrade or buy a big flat, below is a list of the biggest jumbo flat, HDB maisonette, executive apartment, 5-room flat, and landed HDB terrace house you can find on PropertyGuru right now.

10 Biggest Jumbo Flats for Sale

When HDB first launched the jumbo flat in 1989, it was coined as the ‘seven-room flat’ because it was basically converted from a 3-room and 4-room flat. A large supply of unsold 3-room and 4-room flats in estates such as Yishun and Woodlands, coupled with a growing demand for larger homes, made HDB to convert these flats during the 1980s and 1990s.
Today, jumbo flats are no longer in production and it’s estimated that there are only 2,900 jumbo flats remaining in estates such as Ang Mo Kio, Bishan, Bedok, Hougang, Jurong East, Pasir Ris, Tampines, and Woodlands.

10 Biggest HDB Terrace Houses for Sale

HDB terrace houses are landed houses built by the Singapore Improvement Trust (SIT), the predecessor of HDB, in the 1950s. When HDB took over the HDB terrace houses in the 1960s and 1970s, they issued fresh 99-year leases to all 285 remaining units.
Despite their dwindling leases, HDB terrace houses are still highly popular among ‘sandwich class’ Singaporeans who yearn for entry-level landed homes, who are more than willing to pay top dollar to land one. In fact, a 49-year HDB house in Whampoa recently transacted for a record $1.268 million in June 2021, making it the most expensive resale HDB flat so far.
