New home sales boost 9% in Nov as Home developers ramp up launches
The exclusive property market resumed its upward march last month, with sales up almost 19 percent month on month complying with a 225 percent surge in the variety of new residences launched.
Last month’s uptick in sales to 767 units, from 645 in October, adhered to a temporary pullback in October’s sales after the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) clamped down on the reissue of options to purchase (OTPs).
The URA figures launched yesterday exclude executive condo (EC) devices, which are a public-private housing hybrid.
If ECs are consisted of, 815 brand-new exclusive houses were offered last month, up nearly 19 per cent from October and also down 31.3 percent from a year earlier. No EC devices were introduced last month.
OrangeTee & Tie head of research study, as well as consultancy Christine Sun, claimed: “November’s healthy sales indicate that not all sections of the marketplace were impacted by the new curbs on the reissuing of OTPs.
There are lots of real customers who can manage an exclusive house without obtaining an OTP expansion.”
She said injection positive outlook has boosted financier confidence in Singapore’s financial expectation and also elevated hopes that the pandemic might quickly be controlled.

Existing tasks continued to see the sustained passion, PropNex head of the study, and web content Wong Siew Ying stated. “Around 70 percent (or 540 units) of November’s sales were from tasks currently on the market.”
As an example, Riviere, at the former Zouk website, relocated extra units after reducing its median price to $2,541 per sq ft (psf), from $2,932 when it was introduced in May in 2014.
Concerning 18 percent have actually hitherto been sold, noted Ms. Tricia Tune, head of research for Singapore at Colliers International.
The marketplace’s durability could well overflow right into this month, analysts stated. With pandemic-led travel limitations disturbing most outbound holiday plans, December is most likely to be anything but a time-out duration for house sales, claimed PropNex chief executive Ismail Gafoor.
“With 2 brand-new projects out – Ki Homes as well as Clavon, which respectively offered 143 and 442 units at their launch – we anticipate new house sales to cross the 1,000-unit mark this month,” he added.
Little wonder that designers are preparing for even more new launches rather than commonly winding down for the year-end vacations. An overall of 13 brand-new projects are expected to hit the marketplace in the coming months and they consist of Normanton Park, The Coral reef at King’s Dock, and Midtown Modern.
2 ECs – Parc Central Residences and also Provence Home – are anticipated to introduce, said AGE Realty’s head of the study and also consultancy Nicholas Mak.
But November’s sales are still down 34 percent from the 1,165 units offered a year back, also as the number of new units released last month jumped 45 percent year on year to 1,375.
Regardless of last month’s rebound, brand-new house sales are still down 42.3 percent from September, showing the “substantial influence of the clampdown on OTP issuances”, kept in mind JLL senior director of study and working as a consultant Ong Teck Hui.
The percentage of Housing Board upgraders continued to fall as just 46 percent of complete sales last month were valued at the average rate of $1,000 psf to $2,000 psf, compared with 72 percent in October, Ms. Track kept in mind.
Greater than 50 percent of overall sales last month were priced at the mean price of $2,000 psf to $3,000 psf, as city fringe or remainder of central area jobs controlled.
2 such projects – the 120-unit The Linq @ Charm World as well as the 396-unit The Landmark near Normanton Park – topped the bestsellers’ listing last month. The Linq sold 118 devices at a typical rate of $2,171 psf, while The Spots relocated 109 devices at a median cost of $2,135 psf.
Over 30 percent of sales were in the residential areas or outside the central region as well as 11 percent were in the prime or core main area.
