Share of new condo units priced under S$1m fall to 24% in Q2

UNIT prices of new condominiums in Singapore trended higher in the second quarter of this year, with the proportion of apartments priced under S$1 million falling to 24 per cent of new units sold, from 37 per cent in the first quarter.

For resale properties, unit price ranges remained relatively stable quarter-on-quarter, other than a rise in the proportion of resale and larger sized units priced above S$3 million to 11 per cent in Q2, from 8 per cent the quarter before. 

Sell-down rates of new projects in the second quarter ranged from 1.7 per cent to 48.9 per cent. Sky Everton achieving the highest sell down rate, followed by Parc Komo at 37.7 per cent. Overall average sell-down rate improved to 19 per cent, from 10.7 per cent the previous quarter.

Outlook for the private housing market in the second half of 2019 remains "cautiously optimistic",  as it stuck to its forecast of 8,000 to 10,000 in sales of new units for 2019.  Prices are largely expected to remain stable with a 3 per cent upside.

"With new project launches expected to pick up in H2 2019 amid strong headwinds from a slowing local economy, ongoing trade tensions between mainland China and USA, Japan and Korea, and the political situation in Hong Kong, demand for non-landed units from foreign buyers may pick up, as Singapore is viewed as a safe investment haven despite the current property curbs,"

ECs have a pivotal role to play in the mass market

with the lack of new launches for ECs, this has led to a rise in prices for ECs as well. In recent times, EC prices have started to cross the S$1,000 psf mark. Using Rivercove Residences as an example, the highest transacted unit price for the development was in April 2018. A unit on level 16 with a size of 89 sq m (958 sq ft) was sold for S$1,086 psf. With the recent transactions of Rivercove Residences in 2019, many units transacted at the S$1,000 psf mark as well.

Furthermore, according to the data retrieved from URA Realis on July 9, 2019, the median price of new ECs increased from S$941 psf (1Q19) to S$1,003 psf (2Q19). This was a 6.5 per cent (q-o-q) price change.

With EC prices starting to form the new benchmark, a lack of supply of ECs will cause mass market private property prices to continue to rise. Thus, from an affordability perspective, Singaporeans who are aiming for their first private home will face a tough hurdle in achieving that dream.
