Hi all, I have been reading lots of articles about incentives and benefits for first timers to own their first HDB flat, etc.
All these articles are targetted at newly weds. What about singles?
There is a huge number of singles out there today. Why isnt there anything the government is doing to help singles own their first HDB flat?
With the high cost of living and not so high salary, many of us prefer not to settle down yet and commit till we are more or less stable or sufficient to provide for a home and children, if there may be, in the future...?
With a family, cost of living goes up tremendously and as children grow up, they have needs, etc. They need pocket money. I, for one, think that I am not ready to get married, settle down. I only take home $1199 a month... How to provide for a family and parents? How to ensure all my children if assuming I have 2, gets university education?
With an aging population, government is not doing enough to help singles in terms of housing.
Singles out there what is/are your opinion(s)?
