Sales overview of Singapore new launches in recent months.
Singapore new launches sales have dropped nearly 24% in August after hitting a six-month high in July, because developers pared-back new launch and some buyers held off due to the Hungry Ghost month and Covid-19 phase two restrictions.
But in overall, Singapore new launches transactions remain comparatively strong in spite of the month-on-month drop to 1,215 units last month from 1,591 units in July.
Singapore new launches in the suburbs accounted for the majority of sales at 59 per cent.
According to Mr. Wong Xian Yang, head of research, Singapore, at Cushman & Wakefield, the consumption in August was still higher than 7-month average sales of 1,172 units from January to July. The sales were just lowered 3.4% compared to the 1,258 units moved in last year.
Nicholas Mak, ERA Realty head of research and consultancy said that sales volumes that exceed 1 thousand units a month should be considered as robust, because developers sold less than 12,000 units annually in the past 7 years. He noted that developers had sold an average of 738 private housing units monthly excluding EC units over the past 7 years.
