Hi Kaiqi, thanks for writing to us on AskGuru.

With these ethnic quotas, there are limits set on the total percentage of a block or neighbourhood that may be occupied by a certain ethnicity. The quotas are updated on the 1st of every month and you can check them out on HDB's website here: https://services2.hdb.gov.sg/webapp/BB29ETHN/BB29STREET

Learn more about how the ethnic quota can affect your selling/buying ability: https://www.propertyguru.com.sg/property-guides/how-the-ethnic-quota-can-affect-your-sellingbuying-ability-6747

Hope this answers your question.

You can keep a look out in HDB web as this ratio change on monthly basis. But like what Joseph has suggested, look for a chinese seller will be a better option.

Dear Kaiqi,

HDB Ethnic group : Chinese 84% for neighborhood, 87% for each block, Malays 22% for NH , 25% for block, Indians & others is 12% for NH and 15% for block.

For Singapore PR quota (Malaysian PR not included) 5% for neighborhood and 8% for each block.

If you are PRs from china, your are affected by this PR quota

Best regards
