Sales Of Singapore Homes In September Highest In Over Two Years

Published

on

Developers sold 1,329 units last month, the most since July 2018, according to the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s data.

Sales of private homes in Singapore rose to their highest in over two years in September, data on Thursday showed, with analysts citing low-interest rates and signs the city-state’s economy is recovering from a coronavirus slump.

Developers sold 1,329 units last month, the most since July 2018, according to the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s data.

“With interest rates collapsing, people are ready to commit for fear that asset prices continue to surge,” said Christine Li of real estate consultancy Cushman and Wakefield.

“Signs of a gradual recovery in the economy would also help to boost confidence,” added Wong Siew Ying of Singapore real estate agency PropNex.

Singapore’s economy grew 7.9% quarter-on-quarter in the July to September period, data this week showed, marking the end of a “technical recession” as it followed two preceding quarterly contractions.

However, authorities still expect a contraction of between 5% to 7% for the full year – the biggest slump since the island state gained independence in 1965.
