    omg.. definitely there is a huge difference... bto will definitely be much cheaper since it is usually located at new towns.. but.. it is through ballot so.. depending on your luck. u may get it or you may not get it.

    Me and hubby tried applying for BTO more than 5 times already but did not manage to get a decent que number.. so it really is depending on your luck.. Both times we applied for DBSS, we got really good number.. We've finally purchased DBSS - Pasir Ris One. Wondergin how they generate the que number allocation.. Different balloting system for DBSS and BTO?

    BTO is cheaper and you can save money for wedding, banquet..etc while you are waiting.
    Plus best thing is can use CPF for payments.

    I've read a number of people trying BTO for more than 3 times. The question is, do first timers REALLY have priority???

    Balloted for a flat in the Jan 2013 BTO as first timers. Hopefully I'll get a good queue number!
