There are different types of property in Singapore and 80 percent of the population stay in HDB flats also known as public housing. The rest of Singaporeans reside in private residential such as condominiums, walk up apartments and landed properties.
Singaporeans like to invest in new launch projects and resale private condos. Other real estate asset classes include the commercial retail shops and industrial units B1 or B2 which are not subject to Additional Buyer Stamp Duty (ABSD).
Singapore new private residential sales took a beating in the final month of 2021. The new home sales plunged 58% in December. Based on URA caveats lodged in December, it is estimated that property developers sold 643 residential units, excluding executive condominiums (ECs). That is a significant 58.4% reduction from the 1,547 units sold in November. ERA Associate Division Director, Andy Chia, attributed the plunge in sales volume to the Singapore property cooling measures that took effect on 16 December coupled with the year end holiday season. The latest property curbs dealt a severe blow to investors whom are seeking to purchase a second residential property in Singapore. A Singaporean buying a second home will need to pay Additional Buyer Stamp Duty (ABSD) of 17% instead of 12% previously. A foreigner buying their first or subsequent house must pay ABSD of 30% now. It is equivalent to $300,000 stamp duty for a million dollar property. "Many potential home buyers are waiting at the sidelines so I am hopeful that the property developers will provide a 3 to 5 per cent discount very soon," Chia said. December is relatively a lull period for the real estate market according to URA statistics in the past decade. Which region is popular? The rest of central region (RCR) or city fringe accounted 44.9 per cent of the sales volume. The outside central region (OCR) took up 34.2 per cent of the new sales. The core central region (CCR) was only 20.8 per cent. Quantum and Price Sensitivity Following the new cooling measures, the Total Debt Servicing Ratio has become 55 per cent which typically affects your mortgage loan for luxury home properties that is in excess of S$3 million. The new residential properties that were sold between S$1.5 million to S$2 million took up 32.7 per cent of December's volume of landed and non-landed properties. Whereas homes in the more affordable quantum of S$1 million to S$1.5 million contributed 26.6 per cent of the volume. Buyers Profile Singaporeans made up the vast majority of the buyers for new private homes in December whereas permanent residents (PR) and foreigners accounted for 12.6% and 4.2% respectively. What are the Popular New Launch Projects? Including ECs, the top-performing project by sales volume last month was Normanton Park, which is in District 05 - Buona Vista / West Coast located next to Kent Ridge Park. The project's developer, Kingsford Huray Development, sold 73 units at a median price of S$1,831 per square foot (psf). The next best-seller in December is Mori a freehold condo along Guillemard Road in District 14, where 71 units were sold at a median price of S$1,869. The developer is Roxy Pacific, a public listed company in Singapore. Property Market Outlook for 2022 Belgravia Ace, a freehold strata landed property in Ang Mo Kio Avenue will be launched for sale in January 2022. The indicative selling price for a terrace strata house is S$3.8 million which is approximately S$1,050 PSF. Being the first new launch project this year, its sales results will be scrutinized by the property analysts. Belgravia Ace is priced at a premium so it is not expected to be a sell-out, Chia added. Belgravia Villas was launched at a median price of $850 PSF in 2014.January 11 2022

Hong Kong developer Shun Tak Holdings has abandoned the S$556.7 million enbloc deal of High Point after Singapore government introduced a slew of new property cooling measures. High Point condo was completed in 1973 and located at 30 Mount Elizabeth which is a Prime District 9 in Singapore. It has a freehold site area of about 47,606 sq ft with a verified gross floor area (GFA) of 211,976 sq ft. The condominium encompasses 57 apartments and 2 penthouses over 22 storeys. Based on the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s Masterplan 2019, the site was established to be a residential area that could go up to 36 storeys’ high. The potential bird’s eye view with the sky-scraping property features unsurmountable views of the greenery and CBD skyline that beats the fatigue out of you after a long, tiresome day at work. High Point is located at a fine spot of walking distance to main road leading to the Orchard shopping belt, where it entails a shopping paradise and a food galore for the young and the youthful old. There are also other amenities that are a stone’s throw away include Mount Elizabeth Hospital, private clubs like Tanglin Club and the Singapore Botanic Gardens. With these abovementioned qualities that High Point has, it is no wonder that Shun Tak Holdings laid eyes on this beauty with their decision to “expand our portfolio and foothold in Singapore” as mentioned by Shun Tak’s chairman and managing director, Pansy Ho. However, there are other stakes involved with every opportunity that is laid. What caused the fallout of the High Point enbloc deal? Savills Singapore has mentioned in a statement that High Point condo had the third-highest land price per sq ft per plot ratio (psf ppr) of approximately $2,537 psf psr in the whole of Singapore’s history. Shun Tak’s plans of redeveloping High Point into a luxury condominium by 2027 seem to suggest that they were thwarted by the latest property cooling measures that were announced by the Singapore government. These measures include the higher rates of additional buyer’s stamp duty (ABSD) of about 5 to 15 percentage points, where it includes all entities. The ABSD refers to the charge on taxes with every residential property purchased for all entities, excluding Singapore citizens and permanent residents (PRs) who are buying their first residential property. Foreign buyers in particular will have to pay an ABSD of 30 per cent regardless whether it is their first or second property, up from 20 per cent previously. For property developers, the remittable ABSD also increased by 10 per cent, which lead to higher opportunity costs where the liabilities include not just 35 per cent ABSD (previously 25 per cent) but also the interest that comes along with it should they fail to complete the residential project and sell all the units within 5 years of land acquisition. It's worth noting that the tender for High Point closed before the cooling measures took effect on 16 December 2021, therefore Shun Tak is subject to the old scheme of 25 percent remissible ABSD. The aggressive property cooling measures meant that Shun Tak Holdings had to withstand higher risks amidst the uncertain COVID-19 times so it would rather forfeit a one million dollar tender deposit as opposed to holding on. About Shun Tak Shun Tak is a Hong Kong property developer founded by casino tycoon Stanley Ho and is helmed by his daughter Pansy Ho. In May 2021, it launched Park Nova in Tomlinson Road and the recent transactions were at an average of more than S$4,500 psf. Shun Tak owns the commercial building, 111 Somerset, which comprises of retail, office and medical suites at Somerset Road. Pansy Ho, Shun Tak's chairman and managing director, said in a media release on 9th December that the collective sale of High Point will expand their portfolio and foothold in Singapore.December 29 2021

The windows use low-emission glazing that reduces UV and infra-red rays from the sun. In addition, you will get an electric vehicle charging station at your car porch. Air-conditioning systems and home appliances are of the highest energy efficiency rating. The developer is also providing shoe wardrobe with air suction to remove odours. Housing Amenities Belgravia Ace has a drop-off area and air-conditioned lobby at the main entrance. Its facilities include a 50m swimming pool, barbecue pits, outdoor pavilions, steam and sauna rooms, a jacuzzi, and a children’s playground - similar to many condominiums in Singapore!

It has a double-storey clubhouse with a residents’ lounge, private dining room fully equipped with kitchen facilities, a games room and gym. Each home allows space for two cars as well, comfortably parked. Nearby Spots Nearby malls are a short five to ten minutes drive and include the well-known Greenwich V as well as Seletar Mall. Compass One at Sengkang Central and AMK Hub at Ang Mo Kio Town Centre are also located nearby, all within easy access. The Ang Mo Kio MRT station is a 9-minute shuttle ride away, and the property's secluded location provides a buffer against the noise of MRTs and highways.

Within 3 minutes, the Seletar Hills park connector can be reached for a lovely walk through greenery as well.

Furthermore, Serangoon Gardens' famed food spots are located nearby, not to mention Chomp Chomp Food Centre and the restaurants located at the malls listed above. For Your Children This cluster housing is also surrounded by household names when it comes to renowned schools - Chatsworth, Rosyth, and various international schools including the International French Schools.

For your older children, various secondary schools are located nearby, as is Nanyang Polytechnic. Tuition centres and educational institutions located within the area also serve to provide your child with everything they need to succeed academically. Belgravia Ace Pricing The 50:50 joint-venture between Tong Eng Brothers and Yeap Holdings had purchased the 40-acre (over 1.74 million sq ft) freehold land parcel in the early 1970s. The cost of land was very cheap fifty years ago. It stretches from Seletar Terrace to Nim Road. It is a matter of making more or less profit for the joint developers today. Given the recent property cooling measures by the Government and expected rate hike in 2022, we expect buying sentiment to weaken significantly given the quantum of Belgravia Ace is on the high side. We predict the launch price of Belgrava Ace to be from $850 PSF so the terrace house could go on sale from $3.1 million.
