    Makes me worried when I read that so many people tried so manyt times over the years and didn't get it.

    I'm a first timer too!

    Paid $60-70 to HDB before we finally got our unit... and we weren't fussy at all.

    IN fact we were prepared to get a low floor during our 5 or 6th try but when it came to our appointment date, the quota for race became zero.

    Finally we got it on the 7th ballot!

    I think nowadays the system has changed and more people are able to get it at 1st or 2nd ballot.

    Still haven't gotten a number yet.

    Tried Tampines SBF once and got no number, and the recent Punggol BTO where we got 900++ out of the 380 units available.

    Am now looking into resale because I don't want to have children before having my own place and omg I don't want to wait 4yrs for a flat. Sigh...
