34 Freshly MOP-ed HDB Resale Flats in Singapore to Expect in 2023/2024
The HDB resale price index (RPI) flash estimates predict a rise of 0.9% from 171.9 points in Q4 2022 to 173.4 points in Q1 2023, the smallest price increase in the last 10 quarters. While the demand for HDB resale flats remains strong, price growth is moderating. In part, this could be due to more BTO launches and alleviated COVID-19 construction delays.
If you’re intending to move into a new home next year, you’re probably looking for a resale flat. And if you’re someone who prefers a flat with a long remaining lease, you’re likely eyeing a freshly MOP-ed resale flat.
To help you, we’ve put together a list of 34 HDB BTO projects set to fulfil their Minimum Occupation Period (MOP) in 2023 and 2024. If you want to purchase a house that has already fulfilled its MOP, you can check out our article on 41 HDB resale flats that fulfilled their MOP in 2022.

But first, let’s take a step back and understand…

What is MOP in HDB?

Five years after collecting the keys to your HDB flat, your property would have completed its mandatory Minimum Occupation Period or ‘MOP’. From then on, you are eligible to put your flat on the resale market.
Typically, those who ‘flip’ their freshly MOP-ed HDB flat on the open market can fetch a sum considerably higher than what they bought their homes for. And those who bought BTO flats in prime areas benefitted even more greatly due to the “lottery effect”.
However, the Prime Location Public Housing (PLH) model has since been introduced, whereby BTO flats in prime locations launched under the PLH model have a 10-year MOP. For now, the Singapore government will only consider the Central area, Kallang/Whampoa, Queenstown, and Bukit Merah to be prime locations for HDB BTO projects.

Ok, back to the main focus of the article. The following is a list of BTO projects that were announced to have reached TOP in 2018, making them likely to reach MOP in 2023.

Financing Your HDB Flat Purchase

Once you’ve decided on which freshly MOP-ed HDB resale flat to buy, financing your HDB flat purchase is the next step. You can choose between an HDB loan or a bank loan.
The process of applying for an HDB-granted loan is relatively straightforward. There is only one loan to choose from and the interest rate is pegged at 0.10% above the current CPF OA interest rate; the current interest rate is 2.6% and has not changed since 1999.
But bank loans are a little more complicated. You have to cross-compare and choose a home loan package from various major banks in Singapore. There are several loan types to choose from – fixed, floating or hybrid mortgage packages – each with different lock-in periods.
