    How many times did you apply for BTO before getting it?

    Hi ladies, as per title, how many times did you have to apply for your BTO before getting it? Let's share here, I applied once but no success yet, guess I have to open my minds to other location options..

    i actually got a super duper good number on my 2nd try, but forfeited it. I had heard that it's very difficult to get a number, so i tried every single BTO that came out. When i received a good number, i was so torn between buying or not buying.. coz the location is too far away and i didn't like it. in the end i gave up. and that happened TWICE. all the BTOs i bid for near my place, i couldn't get. Then 2 of those far far away ones, i got super good number. haiz. should not have been so kan chiong, should have just been selective. being desperate and panicky is no good.

    Speedz, are you looking for a specific location? If you are not, i think can still give BTO another shot as next month got more than 4 I think.

    I am still deciding between BTO , resale flats or ECs.. but may be settling for resale flat, after seeing so many applicants balloting for the BTO project every month..
