Funny singaporean claims that HDB will stop construction in 2015 and prices will skyrocket

A crazy guy is trying for 1 hour to convince me that HDB will die, that after 2015 construction of new flats will slow down and stop some day due of limited land, HDB resale prices will rise, etc.

He shall leave a PUBLIC comment on website to share his “realistic” thoughts to everyone… but nooo, he is wasting his time on chat, wasting my time too, telling his non-sense thoughts to only to me. I have to publish the chat there for him.

I don’t understand what he actually wanted FROM ME!!!!

[20:23] Visitor: Be reasonable ,how the Price be lower, when 35-40 years ago Singapore population only 2.3 million, that already takes big chunk of Singapore scare land consist 27 estates in facts to accommodates 2.3m…now towards additional 4.6 million where these where to get huge land to build 44 estates? as big as Ang Mo Kio,alone ?
[20:24] Teoalida has joined the conversation
[20:24] Teoalida: I don’t understand what is the relation with prices
[20:24] Teoalida: prices are influenced by supply and demand
[20:24] Teoalida: and concept plan is made for 6.9 million people
[20:24] Visitor: exactly…..
[20:24] Teoalida: 1.4 million HDB units
[20:24] Teoalida: and still leave 20% of land for forest and parks
[20:25] Visitor: where the land come from?
[20:25] Teoalida: But I am in doubt how will look Singapore beyond year 2030, beyond 6.9 million people
[20:25] Teoalida: maybe they will demolish most 12-storey blocks and built 60-storey instead?
[20:25] Teoalida: like Hong Kong
[20:26] Visitor: have been to HK….hardly 60 storey
[20:26] Teoalida: when?
[20:26] Teoalida: see the number of floors
[20:27] Visitor: using turbine water pump? you think easy to raise water volume if 60 storey
[20:28] Visitor: come on…it take .27 estates to accommodates 2.3 citizens before…ang mo kio,toa payoh bedok marine parade,jurong bedok,woodland many more….27 estates
[20:29] Visitor: all hdb land filled up
[20:29] Teoalida: There’s lots of empty land in existing estates
[20:29] Teoalida: You don’t see how half of Bukit Merah was demolished?
[20:30] Visitor: where additional land come from for additional 4.6
[20:30] Teoalida: and replaced with 30-40 storey blocks?
[20:30] Teoalida: look in Annual Reports at project ultimate
[20:30] Teoalida: they plan to fit 1.4 million flats in EXISTING 27 estates
[20:31] Teoalida: then with Tengah and Simpang could be even more
[20:31] Visitor: did you know,bukit timah,botanic garden,telok blangah…..belong to one entity…sultan of Johor..many more
[20:31] Teoalida: but there’s another problem… need to be built more office buildings for all these people
[20:31] Teoalida: anyway I am sure that industrial areas will be redeveloped too
[20:31] Teoalida: with higher-rise buildings
[20:32] Teoalida: and some industrial areas will be turned in residential
[20:32] Visitor: you telling me 90 % hdb land …..
[20:32] Visitor: no commercial or future reserved land?
[20:33] Teoalida: who said that?
[20:33] Visitor: come on that’s realistic view…..
[20:33] Teoalida: current HDB towns use 10% of area
[20:33] Visitor: tell where?
[20:33] Teoalida: c’mon open Google Earth or Google Maps
[20:33] Visitor: name one estate
[20:33] Teoalida: to see a realistic view of land usage
[20:34] Teoalida: how small are HDB estates compared with Jurong industrial area or the landed houses spawning from Bukit Timah to Bedok
[20:34] Visitor: demolished old flat? nonsense……they refurnished and upgrading even 4 years olds….now you telling they going to demolished
[20:35] Visitor: 40 years old

[20:36] Visitor: not easy…that why they offering limit bto
[20:36] Teoalida: are you trying to prove that prices will NOT fall?

[20:39] Teoalida: > Town sheet > Residential area of all HDB towns is 7435 hectares… 74 square km, when country size is 720 square km
[20:40] Visitor: now smaller and smaller…….no more 4/5 room build…..future 2/3 room only……
[20:41] Teoalida: you’re wrong again
[20:41] Visitor: im telling you…..
[20:41] Teoalida: average flat size in BTO projects rose from 78 sqm in 2009 to 83 sqm this year
[20:41] Teoalida: due of rising ratio of 5-room
[20:41] Teoalida: also they introduced 3gen flats… even if just 5sqm bigger than previous biggest
[20:42] Visitor: compare to 20 years ago 127sq or 10 years ago 121sq
[20:42] Visitor: now 110 sq….
[20:42] Visitor: 5 room
[20:42] Teoalida: From where did you got all these wrong facts?
[20:42] Teoalida: such as 2/3-room only?
[20:44] Visitor: common hdb offer 150,unit 5 room 4 rm-300 unit ,900 unit 2/3 rm

[21:23] Visitor:
[21:24] Visitor: your stupidity hardly to understand
[21:24] Teoalida: What I should see in this page?
[21:26] Visitor:
Strong demand from singles has led to a high rate of application for new flats in the latest HDB sales exercise.
As of 5pm, there were over 150 singles for each of the five two-room units in Hougang.
Two other estates were popular with singles.
There were over 40 singles for each unit in Punggol, and about 15 singles for each unit in Choa Chu Kang.
[21:27] Visitor: you see all are over subscription
[21:28] Visitor: understand..its since 2010…have heard someone said…… hit first lottery if got selected
[21:28] Teoalida: This translates to an overall application rate of about 2.94 times.
[21:28] Teoalida: Look at OVERALL ratio
[21:28] Teoalida: I can as well show you under-subscription… 0.4:1 for Sembawang 4-room in May 2013
[21:28] Teoalida: but I already told you that BTO is still un undersupply = oversubscription
[21:28] Visitor: you don’t get it…don’t you
[21:28] Teoalida: what is the problem? what are you trying to contradict?

[21:30] Visitor: singaporean
[21:30] Visitor: that’s facts
[21:30] Teoalida: Not all, but MOST BTOs are oversubscribed… that’s why HDB launch more and more, and why do you say that in 2015 will slow down???
[21:31] Visitor: now hdb not interested to build anymore……..just like giving his responsibility to bank
