New Launch Projects: New Private Home Sales for Doubled in May to hit highest in Six Months
What's special about New Launch Projects with New Private Home Sales in May?
“Sales came roaring back in May after a relatively slower performance in the earlier part of the year. The rebound in new home sales last month was not unexpected as two RCR launches Piccadilly Grand and Liv @ MB were popular with buyers – contributing to about 41% of May’s transactions. The strong take-up in the two new projects at median prices of $2,175 psf and $2,405 psf for Piccadilly Grand and Liv @ MB respectively is very encouraging, suggesting that demand and liquidity are still intact amid global economic headwinds. The supply crunch and absence of new launches in the OCR mass market could also have channeled some buyers into the RCR segment, boosting sales in the two projects.
As more New Launch Projects become available, we can anticipate more buyers entering the market, including those who may have been on the sidelines, after the introduction of new cooling measures in December 2021. In addition, buyers can also look at the average sales of new homes in recent months and judge that prices have not fallen substantially. With stable land prices, some buyers may also think that future sales prices are likely to continue to rise. Furthermore, some buyers may decide to buy sooner rather than later to lock in more favorable interest rates, in case interest rates rise further.
Singaporeans continued to account for the majority of private new home sales in May, accounting for 83.3% of the month's sales. An analysis of the forecast data by region (see Figure 1) shows that Singaporean adoption of new apartments in the CCR and RCR increased from April to May, indicating that local buyers are receiving value in city center projects and city periphery projects. . Singaporeans accounted for 73.5% of CCR new home sales in May (up from 66.1% in April) and 84.6% of RCR sales (up from 80.9% in April). Meanwhile, 56.3% of developers' total revenue in May traded at less than $2 million, compared with 45.4% in April (see Figure 2). On a price quantization basis, $1.5 million to under $2 million continues to be the pricing point for new private homes.
“We expect new home sales to continue to gain traction, with transactions likely to surge in months where there are new projects being put on the market. Some of the upcoming launches over the next few months include The Arden in Phoenix Road, AMO Residence in Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1, Lentor Modern in Lentor Central, and Sceneca Residence in Tanah Merah Kechil Link. However, we remain watchful of potential downside risks for property sales amid rising inflation, further interest rate hikes, and the pessimism over global growth.”
