I'm a 30 year-old single person and can't marry in Singapore. I would like to own my own home eventually. Does it make financial sense to BTO a 2-room flat and upgrade after the MOP for a larger resale flat; or better to tough it out and buy a resale straightaway when I'm older?

Top up your CPF and pay with cash for the BTO if possible.
This would be the more secure path. you can always plan for an upgrade later when you earn more or maybe have a change in your status.
