Singapore Private Home Prices Drop 1.1% In Q2
Prices within the Outside Central Region, on the other hand, stayed the same after recording a 0.4% decrease in Q1.
URA caveat information suggested that the amount of resale deals in Q2 2020 is around a quarter of what was transacted over the exact time frame in 2019. The amount of new launch sales transacted last quarter is also around 50% of what was transacted in Q2 2019, mentioned OrangeTee & Tie.
” There is erratic proof of ‘green shoots’ in specific market sectors and some home buyers were grabbing reasonably great bargains in the marketplace over the last few weeks. As a result, the pricings patterns might be misrepresented by some of these homes or unique priced units,” stated Sun.

Flash price quote from the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) revealed that the private property index slipped 1.1% in the 2nd quarter of 2020, after a 1% decrease seen in the previous quarter.
URA disclosed that values of non-landed homes within the Core Central Region (CCR) dropped 0.1% in Q2, an improvement from Q1’s 2.2% loss. The Rest of Central Region (RCR) saw costs fall 1.9%, a more substantial decline opposed to the previous quarter’s 0.5% drop.
” Last quarter, show flats were shut while residential property viewings were barred in the course of the Circuit Breaker period. Therefore, purchaser demand was suppressed which will inevitably have a negative influence on residential property pricings,” claimed Christine Sun, Head of Research and Consultancy at OrangeTee & Tie.
” Nonetheless, it may be early to deduce that this is the beginning of a sustained duration of value downswings. We need to be cautious in translating the price dips in an unpredictable market, especially when sales volume is lower.”
The COVID-19 pandemic has remained to affect the Singapore real estate market as private houses rates succumbed to a second consecutive quarter.
With this, Sun anticipates house pricings to continue to be soft in the coming months considering the macroeconomic unpredictabilities. For the complete year, she anticipates private property pricings to drop by 3% to 5%.
” We must observe the property market for a few more quarters to ascertain if pricings have bottomed.”
