Executive Condominiums are a type of housing that was introduced by the government in 1995.

This hybrid property is developed and sold privately by developers. However, the government subsidises it. Although they are built to the same standards and have the quality of private condominiums, there may be some restrictions at the beginning.
An EC's affordability is perhaps its greatest advantage. ECs typically cost between 20% and 30% less than condos in similar conditions. First-time EC purchasers can receive a federal housing grant worth up to $30,000.
ECs also come with a variety of luxury amenities. Most ECs include facilities for their residents, including gyms with swimming pools, BBQ pits, play areas, BBQ pits, even function rooms. Many of these facilities can be compared to private condos.
There are however some limitations when purchasing and owning ECs. During the 5 year initial period, an EC cannot be rented to or sold by anyone that isn’t a Singaporean Citizen or Permanent Residency. After the initial ownership period of 5 years, units can only be sold by Singaporeans. These restrictions have been put in place for Singaporeans to be able to afford ECs and for them not to become a speculative means of investment.
