Launches and Sales

It was another quiet month in September.

The absence of major launches took a toll on the sales volume. Developers sold an estimated 217 private residential units in September 2023, 44.9% and 78.0% lower month-on-month and year-on-year, respectively. This is the lowest monthly sales in 2023 and the lowest since Dec 2022 where only 170 units were sold.

The bright spot in September 2023 was the EC market. 118 EC units were estimated to be sold in September 2023. Demand for ECs have been very strong as price sensitive buyers look for the next best alternative to private homes. Furthermore, buyers of ECs are given upfront remission on ABSD.

Purchases by Foreigners

There is a slight pick up in purchases by foreigners in September 2023 to 13 from 10 in August 2023. Although foreigners remained confident in Singapore, the level of interest is unlikely to return to the pre-cooling measures level. Due to the low volume of transaction, the proportion of foreigners jumped to 5.9% in September 2023.

12 of the purchases by foreigners are in the CCR with the remaining in the RCR.

Purchases by Market Segments and Price Range

Sales in the CCR made up 35.0% of total sales in September 2023, driven by Pullman Residences Newton, Midtown Modern, One Bernam, Klimt Cairnhill, Leedon Green and Orchard Sophia. However, the average monthly sales volume in the CCR since Jun 2023 was suppressed by almost 50% due to the cooling measures in April 2023.

The RCR accounted for 32.7% while the OCR made up 32.3%.

Almost 60% of the transactions in September 2023 are priced $2 to <$5 million due to more higher value properties sold in the CCR. The highest value transaction in September 2023 was the sale of a 2,164 sq ft unit at Dalvey Haus to a foreigner for $7 million.
