As heated as Singapore’s housing market can be, one could say that there are several lotteries that are very much worth gunning for – you’d understand if you earned a BTO queue number. While that allows you to save a few hundred thousand on your first flat, here comes another bingo that can save you a few million on a “landed” home: the HDB executive maisonette.

Known for being double-storey, executive maisonettes, or EMs, are close to twice the size of your average HDB flat. Sounds exciting, till you learn that many cost more than a million dollars today, the main reason being that they are no longer being built since the 90s. 

That said, there’s always a way around the dollar roadblock: presenting to you 9 cheapest maisonettes in Singapore under $850K.
