PRICING OF NEW FLATS AT FERNVALE FLORA, FERNVALE GARDEDNS AND SEGAR VALE
New HDB flats are priced with a generous subsidy below their market value. The market value, as determined by professional valuers, takes into account the prices of comparable resale flats in the area, adjusted for factors such as location, flat attributes, design, availability of flats for occupation and prevailing market conditions.
In addition, eligible first-timers buying 2-room and bigger new flats and earning not more than $5,000 per month can also apply for the Additional CPF Housing Grant (AHG) of up to $40,000. The AHG can be used to offset the initial down-payment.

$148,000 to $193,000 for a 3-room flat;
