Singapore Q3 Residential Property Market Overview

   

    

Oct  28, 2016

 

 

Overall private residential property prices index in Singapore fell 1.5% in the third quarter from the second quarter, according to data released by the Urban Redevelopment Authority today.

 

Third quarter's price drop was more than the 0.4 % dip in the second quarter. It was unchanged from flash estimate released by URA earlier this month. Sales of new private homes (excluding ECs) fell 12% in the third quarter to 1,981 units from 2,256 units in the second quarter.
 

Prices of non-landed homes in the core central region declined by 1.9%, while those in the non-core central and suburbs both fell by 1%. URA said 20,577 units remained unsold as at September 30.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rentals index of private homes also saw a drop of 1.2% in the July-September period, compared to the 0.6% decline in the previous quarter, URA's data showed.

 

 

The steeper price decline in the third quarter was partly due to a tweak in the methodology URA uses to compute its private-property price indices. To enhance market transparency, URA's latest data include for the first time the net sales prices of de-licensed projects - as opposed to gross prices that might have included discounts and rebates.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

However so, as the pipeline of supply declined during the quarter, even as the take up rate dropped 12%, the overall vacancy rate actually fell 0.2% point during the quarter.
