Note: The data is based on 88 projects tracked by PropertyNet.SG research and does not constitute the entire projects that are for sale in Singapore.
Based on the 88 private condominiums tracked by PropertyNet.SG, a handful of the private condo did well over the last two weeks – 21 projects sold more than ten units in the month of July 2017.
From the data collected, it appears that the key factor that determines the performance of the projects is the price of the private condo. The sweet spot is the quantum of the private condominium not more than SGD 1,200,000. This sweet spot is the result of TDSR, though some may contribute it to the higher rental yield of the lower quantum unit.
Surprisingly, the importance of proximity to MRT station and amenities and regional development was overshadowed by price. The top 5 selling projects are not within walking distance to MRT station and amenities except Kingsford Waterbay which has a few retail shop within its compound. Regards to regional development, only Parc Riviera may benefit from the development in Jurong, whereas the rest of the condos do not appear to be a beneficiary of any major regional development.
