    Many People do not realize that Space is the most valuable thing in Singapore. If I have to choose between 120sqm HDB and 53sqm Condo with the same price then I will choose the HDB. I am quite lucky that I can leave in 115sqm Condo in Singapore even the condo is already more than 10 years old.

    Maybe condo is more towards luxurious living and HDB is more for public housing. So luxurious means big nice house.

    I definitely need space and although I stay in a studio, my studio is close to 700 sq ft. And it is without balcony . So 2 bedder at 580 sq ft is crap IMO. Too small and uncomfortable to be considered as a "condo". Maybe nowadays, people have low expectation of space.

    I feel tat in the next 10 yrs to come, yr 700sqft studio will be hard to sell due to the unaffordable high quantum.

    If I can afford to spend 600k, I will not buy 2rm HDB, but I will buy at least 4rm HDB.
