Ohmyhome’s Choice: Top 4 Picks For 5-Room HDBs Under $900k For Sale

Maelyn Lagman

In this new series, Ohmyhome looks at all our available listings and picks out the best HDB listings for sale from our own database to showcase. Today, we give you our top 4 picks for 5-room HDB flats for sale, under $900,000. These listings may sell out quickly, though, so if you’re interested in any of them, make sure to enquire here soon.

Looking for a spacious and affordable 5-room HDB flat to call home can be an exhausting task, especially when you have to scroll through endless listings just to find The One and, on top of that, still having to feed your children, put them to sleep, tidy up, and spend time with your spouse.

To make sure you can enjoy your time with your family at home, we’ve curated our top 4 picks of 5-room HDB for sale listings in Tampines, Punggol, and Sengkang — all under $900,000 and perfect for growing families looking for a little extra room to stretch their legs. 

The listings we’ve shared below are relatively new, with about 70-90 years left on the lease, and they are move-in ready — renovated and well-maintained.

#1: $800,000 – 663B Punggol Drive

Asking Price$800,000
Ohmyhome e-Valuation$740,000
Address663B Punggol Drive
Property TypeHDB
Sub-Property Type5-room
Floor Size1,076 sq ft / 110 sqm
Years Left93 years

This unit is great because it is only about a 5-8-min walk away from Oasis Primary School, Punggol Secondary School, and Punggol View Primary School, as well as a slew of preschools that are also within walking distance. So you should have no problem finding a school for your kids and they will also be able to enjoy the convenience of being so close to school (which means they don’t have to wake super early to get there on time). 

Some schools that should only be a short bus ride away include Edgefiled Secondary School, Horizon Primary School, Punggol Green Primary School, and Yusof Ishak Secondary School.

There are multiple playgrounds that are also within walking distance and even some good food options: you can enjoy some chilli crab at Master Crab Seafood Restaurant at a hawker that’s only a 2-min walk away. The nearest McDonald’s is a 6-min walk away at Oasis Terraces, where there’s also a Starbucks and R&B Tea. (Trust us, these are important amenities to have near your house, especially when you have kids and/or teens around.)

The unit itself is well-maintained, though not as spacious as the first few listings mentioned above, and the rooms are just big enough for each occupant. The toilets are also recently renovated and in good condition, so that’s one less thing for you to worry about. The view isn’t so bad either, with lush greenery cropping the Punggol river.

#2: $898,000 – 280B Sengkang East Ave

Asking Price$898,000
Ohmyhome e-Valuation$793,000
Address280B Sengkang East Ave
Property TypeHDB
Sub-Property Type5-room
Floor Size1,205 sq ft / 112 sqm
Years Left92 years

This HDB flat is just 3 years fresh from reaching its Minimum Occupancy Period (MOP) and enjoys all the benefits of a BTO project – from connectivity to amenities. Buangkok MRT is only a 6-min walk away and a 12-min walk away from Sengkang MRT and Compass One. Nan Chiau High School and North Vista Primary School are both 10 minutes away on foot. 

The renovations for this unit are well maintained, giving off a modern vibe that fits this young neighbourhood. The kitchen is sectioned off by black-trimmed glass panels which are paired with dark wood carpentry, exuding a cafe look perfect for young couples or growing families. The black and white paint-style floor tiles break things up in a unique way, which we think gives character to the space — along with the spotlights directed at the cooking area. 

It’s also on a high floor, so you’ll get that strong wind from the outside if you open your windows, which you shouldn’t be afraid of doing as there will be no west sun coming in.

#3: $698,000 – 293A Compassvale Crescent (SOLD!)

Update as of 1 Mar 2023: This unit was just sold in 2 viewings after a previous property agent tried for 4 months.
Asking Price$698,000
Ohmyhome e-Valuation$671,000
Address293A Compassvale Crescent
Property TypeHDB
Sub-Property Type5-room
Floor Size1,216 sq ft / 113 sqm

This is second on our list in terms of price, but first in our hearts for its interior design theme. The opulent design reminiscent of rich families in K-dramas like Boys Over Flowers was the first thing that caught our eyes; the ornate pillars sectioning off the entertainment space that’s on a raised platform really elevates (ha, get it) its look.

The whole living area is completed by a crystal chandelier and gold-trimmed mirror, and the warm cove lighting which creates a cosy vibe that invites you to settle down on the plush white leather sofa and rest your eyes on the calming green of trees just outside your window. 

Even the entry way is decked out with a bar and a good-sized bench for removing shoes, to be put away in storage closets that blend in with the luxurious theme of the unit. 

What we really love about this, though, is that the price still falls within market rate, which is about $690,000, according to the 2022 median price of 5-room HDB flats in Singapore.

However, as luxurious as the unit looks, it may not be your style. And it may take a bit more for you to undo the renovations done. 

The master bedroom may seem tight on space due to the size of the bed, but you can always switch it out. There is a dedicated space for the vanity table, tucked along the interior corridor that leads to the en-suite bathroom, which we think is really nice touch for the ladies.

This 5-room HDB for sale in Tampines is also close to primary, secondary, and tertiary schools:

  • Compassvale Primary School (4-min walk)
  • Compassvale Secondary School (5-min walk)
  • Punggol Green Primary School (8-min walk)
  • Springdale Primary School (8-min walk)
  • Nian Chiau Primary School (8-min walk)

#4: $665,000 – 367 Tampines St 34 (SOLD!)

Update as of 9 Mar 2023: This unit was just sold.
Asking Price$665,000
Ohmyhome e-Valuation$657,000
Address367 Tampines St 34
Property TypeHDB
Sub-Property Type5-room
Floor Size1,291 sq ft / 120 sqm
Years Left73 years

It’s hard finding a new home to move into, and even harder to find one that’s actually ready for move-in. That’s why we love this unit: it’s recently renovated, as you can see in the listing photos, so you won’t have to worry about an outdated look for your home. 

Each common room is spacious enough for your kids – one of the rooms, as pictured, is spacious enough for you to add a queen-sized bed and a study desk for your teenager. There’s even plenty of room for a small vanity table in the corner should your daughter, if you have one, need it. 

If you have younger children, you can turn one of the rooms into a bedroom cum playroom as there’s plenty of space for a small double-decker for toddlers, wide cabinets and the real estate that’s left for them to play in. The living room and dining area are just as spacious — enhanced by downlights and cove lighting.

As it is an open-concept unit, the kitchen blends in with the living area quite seamlessly. While it gives you easy access, it also means that the smell and smoke from cooking will travel that much easier and quicker throughout the unit. This is quite easy to fix, though, as the kitchen windows are quite wide — you can always just open them to air out the place as you cook so the smoke or smell won’t stick to your furniture.

Parents will also love staying in this place as it is close to numerous primary, secondary, and tertiary schools, such as:

  • East Spring Secondary School (3-min walk)
  • Tampines Junior College (6-min walk)
  • Dunman Secondary School (7-min walk)
  • Ngee Ann Secondary School (8-min walk)
  • East Spring Primary School (8-min walk)
  • White Sands Primary School (9-min walk)
