The executive condominium (EC) is a public-private hybrid type of home that was introduced to cater to the aspirations and needs of the “sandwich class” – households that have exceeded the income ceiling for public housing (HDB flats), but still couldn’t comfortably afford a private property.
ECs are subsidised by the Singapore government but come with condo features such as better fittings and facilities like swimming pools, landscaped gardens, gyms, BBQ pits, and more. Hence, those who want to upgrade from their HDB flat to a private property can consider resale ECs as an option.
Want to keep condos as an option but are still keen on resale ECs? Then here’s a list of resale executive condos for sale in Singapore which hit their five-year mark in 2022 and 2023 for you to consider.

Why Should You Buy an Executive Condo in Singapore?
ECs are built and sold by private developers but are typically about 25% cheaper than their private counterparts. This is because the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) allocates land for such subsidised residential dwellings based on the Government Land Sales (GLS) programme.
For those who wish to enjoy condo facilities, purchasing an executive condo becomes a more viable, affordable option than purchasing private property. Furthermore, eligible EC buyers can use the CPF housing grants to offset some of the costs. Another plus is that 70% of EC units are earmarked for first-timers during the developer’s initial launch period.
After 10 Years, Executive Condos Essentially Become ‘Private Property’
For the first 10 years after an executive condo receives its Temporary Occupation Period (TOP), only Singaporeans and Singaporean Permanent Residents (PRs) are allowed to purchase them. Upon privatisation from its 11th year, EC units can be put up for sale or rent to foreigners.
The above reasons make ECs a good option for own-stay purposes. But what are some things to take note of if you’re an EC owner hoping to sell or rent out their property?
Can I Rent out My Executive Condo Before MOP?
While you cannot rent out the entire executive condo unit you own during the five-year MOP, you can rent out a room. After the MOP is fulfilled, you can sell or rent the unit to Singaporeans and PRs.
Is Buying an EC a Good Investment?
The low initial selling price of an EC fosters greater capital appreciation within the first five years of its launch. A study conducted by Squarefoot revealed that the price gap between a private condo and a nearby executive condo can narrow substantially after the latter has met its 5-year MOP.
With a red-hot rental market, current market conditions also suggest ECs can offer a good rental yield, should you choose to lease out your property for rental income.
4 Reasons to Buy a Resale Executive Condo in Singapore
1. No MOP for Resale ECs
For BTO flats, DBSS units and resale flats, the MOP is calculated from the date you get the keys to your new home. But for an executive condo, the MOP is calculated from the TOP date.
This means buying a resale EC allows homeowners to gain the flexibility to move as early as a good opportunity presents itself.
2. Resale ECs Are Closer to Becoming Private
While not so relevant to own-stay properties, this is particularly beneficial for those looking for investment opportunities to sell or rent to foreigners in Singapore.
3. Can Keep Your Current HDB Flat
Also, if you already own an HDB flat and you don’t want to give it up, you can’t buy a new EC. You can, however, buy a resale EC which has been privatised.
Do note that you still need to have met the MOP of your previous HDB flat, and the Additional Buyer’s Stamp Duty (ABSD) applies for the resale EC, which is considered your second property.
4. Resale ECs are Already Built and Completed
Lastly, resale ECs are already completed and more or less move-in ready. New launch executive condos can take years to build, and you can’t inspect the place before paying. Resale ECs are better for those who need a new home quickly, and like to do a physical viewing before committing to the purchase.
