HDB Rental Flat Prices: Will They Come Down in 2023?

We recently explained why we think rental prices for HDB flats and private properties may come down in 2023. Tl;dr, renters are increasingly resisting the high rental rates landlords are asking for – evident by the fewer rental listing enquiries on the PropertyGuru website.
By the end of 2023, the increased supply of completed BTO flats and condos receiving their Temporary Occupation Permit (TOP) will also likely increase the units available for rent, thereby easing the red-hot rental demand we continue to witness right now.
In the meantime, there are still 4-room HDB flats available for rent that are seeing somewhat reasonable rental rates. We compiled a list of nine 4-room HDB flats for rent right now (accurate as of 26 June 2023). Scroll on before these 4-room HDB flats for rent get snagged up!

HDB 4-room Rental Rates in 2023: Beware of Rental Scams

High rental flat prices in 2023 have bred scammers eager to prey on renters desperate for affordable rental prices. As we like to say: if an HDB rental flat price looks too good to be true, it probably is.
Of course, avoiding rental scams are not as straightforward as before. To keep yourself safe, always ensure you get in touch with a property agent from a trusted property listing site (e.g. PropertyGuru) rather than social media platforms, insist on viewing an HDB rental flat in person before putting down a deposit, and double-check your property agent’s credentials on the Council for Estate Agencies (CEA) website.
