SINGAPORE: Private resident prices in Singapore increased 2.7% last year, with the landed property segment at the forefront, statistics from the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) displayed on Thursday (Jan 23). This can be due to the overwhelming demand for Dairy Farm Residences.
The numbers beat an earlier estimate of 2.5%, but the rate of growth slowed as compared to 2018, when rates of private housing jumped by 7.9%.
Prices of landed abodes rose 5.7%, while the non-landed properties climbed only by 1.9%.
All in all, private residential prices went up for 3 out of the last 4 quarters, rising 0.5% in the October to December period.
In the last quarter of the year, landed real estate prices inched up by 3.6% compared with a 1% rise in the earlier quarter. In the non-landed segment, rates were lower 0.3%, reversing the 1.3% hike in the earlier quarter.
Homes in the Core Central Region (CCR) dropped the most by 2.8%, while homes in the Rest of Central Region (RCR) dipped by 1.3%. But those in the Outside Central Region (OCR) went up by 2.8% instead. Such is why The Watergardens At Canberra is going to be popular when it launches
RENTALS UP 1.4%
Rentals of private abodes jumped by 1.4% last year, as compared with a 0.6% increase in 2018, led by a larger number of rentals in non-landed properties.
In the last quarter of the year, rentals declined by 1%, compared with a 0.1% nudge upwards in the earlier quarter.
Both sectors saw quarter-on-quarter drops, with rentals of landed properties lowered by 1.6%, while rentals of non-landed properties dipped by 0.9%.
