Why Should I Buy an Executive Condo in Holland Singapore?

Executive condominiums are an increasingly popular housing choice in Singapore. Offering many advantages while adhering to certain restrictions – such as having to abide by a 10-year Minimum Occupancy Period and only selling or renting them to Singapore citizens and PRs – executive condos have quickly become increasingly attractive options for renting or selling.

Owner-occupiers tend not to worry much about these restrictions since they won’t be selling or renting the property anyway.

Executive condominium prices typically tend to be more reasonable than private condo prices due to government subsidies for executive condos (ECs). Furthermore, buyers still qualify for CPF housing grants when buying an EC.

Buyers should be mindful of the minimum occupation period for an EC before selling or renting out their property – five years from its date of TOP. During this time, only Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents can sell or rent out their EC; after MOP comes into effect it becomes fully privatised and can be sold to foreigners.
