Singapore was facing a long downtrend in its property market for the past few years. However, recently Singapore’s housing market has been assembling its forces for a major comeback. Judging from the real estate activity, Singapore’s unenthusiastic property market is finally showing some signs of animation.
The Singapore government has made quite a few moves to ease the difficulties faced by the property market. Since the government has loosened its hold on the market, people now have more incentives to buy Singapore property.
In the first quarter of this year, the number of property listings rose from 2.0 percent to 2.4 percent in March. Just last month, after a belligerent contest drawing 13 bids, a ninety nine year lease housing site in Queenstown along Stirling Road was sold for $1 billion.
Only few days back on the 21th of June, a HUDC estate of the past known as Serangoon Ville was placed for a collaborative sale with a demand price of somewhere ranging from $400 million till $430 million.
Moreover, stocks related to the property on the “Singapore Exchange” (SGX) were also depicting a robust accomplishment in the recent year.
SGX listed 63 stocks under the “Real Estate Management & Development Industry”, with a total market value of around $112 billion. The 63 stocks had a total average return of 23.1 percent, according to an SGX report.
As reported by Bloomberg on Sunday, property trusts and developers made up almost half of the top achieving stocks on the “Straits Times Index” (STI).
One of the most recent property listings on “Singapore Exchange” is the World Class Global which is a real estate company specializing in property development as well as property investment in Malaysia and Australia.
The government relaxed some restraints after a three and a half year downfall in home prices; this also resulted in an overall optimistic property market. This was the longest period of reduction since 1975. At the same time, property dealings and transactions came over the top; dealers sold two times more the amount of homes as compared to a number of homes sold in 2016.
However, investors should take note that the prices of property and rents in Singapore are on a steady decline. Private and residential properties prices came down by 0.4 percent at the beginning of this year. In the previous quarter, there was a 0.5 percent decline, according to the “Urban Development Authority” statistics.
In the first quarter of this year, rentals of private and residential properties toppled down by 0.9 percent as compared to a one percent decline in the previous quarter.
However, Singapore Exchanges’ property firms have exposure and access to market abroad. It lists 12 management and real estate development stocks with their capitalization above $100 million. At least 1/10th of these revenues are from China.
Property prices in China have been rising continually at a slow rate despite the restrictions initiated by the Chinese government.
According to some analysts, investors are starting to look beyond main Chinese cities where restrictions are tougher. Instead, they are looking into more remote smaller cities. Buyers are running bets that the government might further loosen up a bit regarding property sector curbs.
