First of all buying a HDB Resale Flat comes with its advantages one of it being the generous HDB Resale Grants you may qualify for

With the three main grants: Family Grant, Enhanced Housing Grant, Proximity Housing Grant 

available for the resale flat you may be eligible to receive up to a total of $160,000

So a brief summary, in the year 2019, HDB raised the income ceiling for the CPF family grant from $12,000 to $14,000 and launched a new Enhanced Housing Grant which enabled more resale buyers to qualify for Housing Grants and with a maximum grant amount of up to $160,000.

These changes could mean that HDB Resale Flat may turn out to be cheaper than a BTO flat, even though BTO flats are sold by HDB at a discount after all the Family Grant and Proximity Housing Grants are not applicable for BTO flat.

Plus, the advantage of buying a resale flat is an unlimited choice of locations and the fact that resale flats are already completed and ready for moving in.

Resale flats also typically have well-developed amenities such as schools and eateries surrounding them.
