How much the average selling price or buying price of “this” HDB area
A typical common question that comes to one minds when it comes to buy or sell HDB house is, “how much is the average selling price or buying price of ‘this’ HDB area?”
“This” above refer to your HDB area (if you are a seller) or refer to your preference location (if you are a buyer).
Of course, as a seller, it’s your own HDB house, you can sell as high or as low as you want and since every house though they were built the same or similar, but after years of staying, living and renovation works done, a HDB house can be totally different between yours and your neighbor. But having to know the average selling price of your surrounding HDB area should be good for your reference and won’t cause any harm to you as well as a seller.
And of course as a buyer, knowing the average buying price on the surrounding area would be good, so that you won’t offer way above the market price, though again I should say, especially when buying a resale HDB, every HDB house is totally unique. They could have the same size, sitting on the same floor, but due to renovation works, maintenance done, they could look and of course value and priced differently.
