Renovation cost is an importance factor to consider when it comes to choosing between a HDB BTO and a resale unit. Why is the renovation cost of a resale unit higher than a brand new BTO? is a common question asked among home owners.
Here are the key reasons:
Things in our home will undergo wear and tear with daily usage. Hence, new owners of resale flats may need to repair or fix any components in their home before moving in especially if the home has been occupied by the previous owners for a number of years.
It is common for new home owners of resale flats to remove or demolish any built-in fixtures or features such as flooring which are left behind by the previous owner. Hence, they will incur extra costs.
Resale flats in Singapore are generally bigger than BTOs. Since the area to be renovated is bigger, it will naturally translate to higher renovation cost.
