HDB Database is an original compilation “Made by Teoalida” which took over 500 hours of work. Collecting data from multiple sources, I manually entered data in one Excel table for all HDB blocks ever built in Singapore, indicating block number, street address, postal code, GPS coordinates, construction year, lease commence date, number of floors, number of units breakdown by flat type, upgrading programmes, brochures and floor plans.
The database has been purchased by several companies, including home insurance, telecommunication, door-to-door services, real estate portals, flyer distributors, as well as many people who did not told me what business field they are in. Season parking.
HDB Resale Price Index DOUBLED from 2007 to 2013, dropped 10% to 2015 then stabilized. When COVID-19 pandemic started, I was expecting prices dropping like during 2003 SARS, but contrary happened: internet connection available nowadays allowed people to work from home, and despite that pandemic caused a short-term global recession, it changed people lifestyle towards investing more in (bigger) homes, further accelerating prices growth.

I am planning to offer in the future also API SaaS web service beside Excel download.

Forecast demand and increase BTO supply to prevent rising prices, how to improve town planning, increase HDB flat sizes, optimize HDB flat layout, regulate flat sizes in condominiums.
If you want to download a database of laptops and desktop computer specifications in Excel format, I created an Excel database for you, including over 8,000 desktop computers and 60,000 laptop models. 300+ columns of specifications.
During my live I made over 100+ databases, from personal interest to distribute freely or sell for professional use. Some projects I made at request and published on website to allow other customers to purchase if interested. They have been used by numerous people from students practicing data analysis, to multi-national companies in real estate and automobile industry. I offer web scraping services in VB.NET and Python, making custom databases according your requirements. I work in Word and Excel, other file formats available: CSV, SQL, XML, JSON.
Officially there are 18 HUDC estates, but actually Housing and Urban Development Company built 22 estates for middle-income people, including 3 not managed as public housing and one demolished in 1990s. HDB took over JTC and HUDC in 1982. Phase III and IV are HUDC flats built by HDB, last HUDC was completed in 1987. HUDC was replaced by Executive HBD flats built since 1984.
Here are my best designs made by me from personal interest (artistic hobby / training) as well as for various customers, from 2008 to around 2016 when I retired from architecture for more profitable IT industry. While I am not making new designs anymore, I have over 100 designs (editable AutoCAD DWG files) available for download.
Selective En-bloc Redevelopment Scheme was introduced in 1995. 71 sites were selected by 2007 and another 10 sites in 2008-2018. This page shows list of SERS sites and (personal prediction) future SERS sites. On 19 August 2018 HDB announced that only 5% of total sold flats are eligible for SERS, of which 4% have been selected already. For all other flats there will be VERS (Voluntary En-bloc Redevelopment Scheme) that will start in ~20 years (probably in 2036 when first leases reach 70 years old).
If you need to download a list of condos in Excel format to organize your work, I made some databases for you, extracting data from SingaporeExpats and PropertyGuru.
Ministry of National Development, Khaw Boon Wan, said in 2012 that HDB flats have been the same size for last 15 years and are not shrinking. This article has been copied on numerous blogs.
As you can see in the following chat, the 4-room flats leased in 2000 were 90 sqm and 4-room flats launched in 2012 (TOP 2016) are the same 90 sqm, so he is not lying, instead he is masking the shrinking that occurred 15-20 years ago, also he does not take in consideration that the 4-room flat was the smallest flat type in 2000, while today it is the average flat type.
I started self-studying architecture in 2008 and designed “Teoalida’s Virtual City”, originally a hobby of graphic design and 3D modeling in AutoCAD, but a fully functional housing system. Many people contacted me for architectural design services. But simply answering chats and emails, discuss project requirements to quote a price, is a waste of time if 90% never pay, only 10% have paid me and only after seeing (part of) work done. Once got paid, some customers were not satisfied or changed mind so I had to do changes (delaying me from doing other jobs) then I cannot sell same design to multiple people (like how I sell databases) because in architecture each customer have different requirements, making whole profession of architect a waste of time.
This article must be read by all students BEFORE choosing architecture universities, to understand what you should expect and not make same mistake like me!
Executive Condominium (EC) is a form of subsidized housing built by private developers, having same eligibility restrictions like HDB (family nucleus, citizens and permanent residents), you should dispose any other property 30 months before applying, minimum occupation period of 5 years before you can sell to citizens and PR, even single PR. After 10 years since TOP date, all restrictions are lifted and even single foreigners can buy. I made an interactive map with TOP dates.
Worldwide cities database organized by country, state and province, with city population indicated. An original product “Made by Teoalida” that you will NOT find elsewhere on internet, compiled by me since 2003 and gradually expanded over years, based on Microsoft Encarta Encyclopedia. Currently it include over 16000 cities, more exactly ALL cities in the world with population over 20,000 people.
In 2012-2016 I designed myself houses and apartments for dozens customers. Currently I have a team of 5 architects, located in India, Nigeria, Philippines, Romania and United States, who offered to work for me if I am too busy, but seeing their high experience and cheap prices I decided to pass them ALL architectural projects, to free my time so I can focus on IT / data providing industry.

We all love music, but I may be the only person who made an Excel database and show to everyone what are my musical preferences in the style of a data scientist. Since 2005 I use Excel to organize the music I am listening, rate each songs from 0 to 16, then use complex mathematical formulas to calculate scores and rank best artists, best albums, best music genres, etc.
As graphic designer and enthusiast in computer history, I became curious how the monitor dimensions evolved over the years and analyzed which screen resolutions were most popular, so I created these Excel files:
The database contains EVERY searchable item in Singapore map, including HDB blocks, condominiums, landed houses, commercial, office and industrial buildings, schools, places of worship, gas stations, parks, MRT stations, and few more. Data included is building name, address, street name, postal code, latitude and longitude, X and Y coordinates of OneMap.sg, etc.
Design, Build and Sell Scheme was introduced in 2005, giving private developers freedom to build and sell public housing in the way they sell condos. Since private developers are hungry for profit, DBSS flats have smaller rooms and abnormal high prices compared with BTO flats despite of same income ceiling ($8.000 per month, $10.000 per month after 2011). DBSS land sales were suspended in 2011.
Biggest HDB town, biggest HDB block, smallest HDB block, longest HDB block, most segmented HDB, private HDB blocks, most expensive HDB flats, new vertical numbering system (1983), etc.
