If you don't qualify for a BTO, would you buy a re-sale HDB for $1m or a condo for $2m (assuming available financing for both, and at decently good locations)?

      I would go for condo! Price of resale HDB is stagnant and somewhat on a downward trend. It doesnt look like it will increase anytime soon with the huge supply of BTOs.

      Condo has much more room for capital appreciation!

      Depending on location, wouldn't buy condo for $2m. Might as well buy a landed.

      Use 1.5m to buy new launch condo

    It depends on your exit strategy. After X years of stay, what are the chances of selling the resale HDB for ($1mil + bank interest + CPF interest); similar for the condo. Do keep in mind that HDB is not exactly a free market anymore as HDB valuation is no longer done by private valuers but by HDB inhouse valuers. A property is usually a person's biggest investment (and liability), hence do look at the future returns before locking in.
