Resale prices of non-landed private homes shed 0.8 per cent in December 2015 over the previous month, based on SRX Property's flash estimates released on Tuesday.

This contrasts with a 0.6 per cent month-on-month gain in November.

For the whole of last year, the index slipped 2.1 per cent; this pace of decline was about half the 4 per cent slide seen in 2014.

Amid persistent industry lobbying for the lifting of property cooling measures, the government has reiterated its view that it remains premature to do so. The Real Estate Developers’ Association of Singapore (Redas) has warned of a potential downward price spiral given the supply deluge and rising vacancy rates. But there have been mixed signals from property launches last year, with some projects seeing strong interest while others were met with a cold reception. Here, BT looks at what’s hot and what’s not in 2015.

A new association called the Singapore Estate Agents Association (SEAA) is slated to be launched by the first quarter of this year, in an industry-led initiative to raise professionalism in real estate agency work and provide a unified voice for agencies and their salespersons.

BT learnt that SEAA has already been registered as a society with the "blessing" of the Council of Estate Agencies (CEA).

Though membership for SEAA is not mandatory, agents would be incentivised to join through the offering of common services such as training, dispute resolution and professional indemnity services. Other potential value-added services that may be offered include a platform to publish property listings and to register the transactions agents clock to create a common database.

Housing Board resale prices stayed flat last month in confirmation of a stabilising market, with experts expecting sluggish conditions to continue into the year.

SRX Property flash figures released yesterday showed HDB resale prices staying unchanged from November to December, though fewer flats changed hands in the traditionally quiet year-end season. December's price changes were marginal across different flat types and estates. Prices rose 0.3 and 0.1 per cent respectively for three- and four-room flats, and fell 0.4 per cent for both five-roomers and executive flats.

Across mature estates, prices rose 0.2 per cent. In non-mature estates, they fell 0.2 per cent.

The dust has barely settled on the New Year festivities, but at least one developer is anxious to get the land sales ball rolling.

The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) announced yesterday that a 2.44ha site on the reserve list has been triggered for sale.

Around 570 homes can be built on the plot at the junction of New Upper Changi Road and Bedok South Avenue 3.

Developers pondering what might lure buyers back to the market this year already seem to have the answer - reasonably priced homes in good locations.

They only have to look at the turnout at the launches held last year.

Three projects defied the cooling measures to perform exceptionally well at their launch, largely due to pricing and location.

North Park Residences in Yishun sold 486 units at a median price of $1,374 per sq ft (psf) while High Park Residences in Sengkang sold 1,169 units at a median price of $989 psf in their launch months.

After nine months of decline, public housing resale prices in Singapore rose 0.2 per cent in the fourth quarter of 2015 over the third quarter, although it remains to be seen if this uptick is sustainable.

The latest data was according to flash estimates released by the Housing & Development Board (HDB) on Monday. It brings the decline in resale flat prices for the whole of 2015 to 1.5 per cent.

The property market is poised for further slides this year, with weak economic growth and rising interest rates likely to drag prices south.

Remarks by National Development (MND) Minister Lawrence Wong on Wednesday that it is too early to talk about unwinding cooling measures suggest these steps will continue to dampen demand.

As at the third quarter of last year, private home prices had fallen about 8 per cent from their peak in the third quarter of 2013.

Good Class Bungalows, the creme de la creme of the landed housing market, have turned out to be somewhat of a bright spot in 2015.

At least 34 transactions totalling S$730 million in Good Class Bungalow (GCB) Areas were sealed in 2015 - up from 28 deals adding up to S$626 million in 2014.

The latest tally is also the best showing since 2012, when 54 properties in GCB Areas changed hands for S$1.17 billion. The increase in sales last year was against the backdrop of softer prices.

The Housing & Development Board (HDB) has launched for sale an Executive Condominium (EC) site on Yio Chu Kang Road, with analysts saying the tender is likely to attract conservative bids from developers amid a large unsold inventory.

The 99-year leasehold site, released from the Confirmed List of the second half of the 2015 Government Land Sales programme, sits on a 198,302 sqf area and may yield 520 homes, said the HDB yesterday. It also released for application under the Reserve List yesterday an EC site at Sumang Walk in Punggol. This parcel has a land area of about 291,233 sqf and may yield 820 units.

After another year of subdued home buying activity, property analysts warned that the Republic’s private residential property market may be in for tougher times in 2016 as the lacklustre economic environment is likely to depress sentiment further.

Adding to the woes is the United States Federal Reserve’s decision to start normalising interest rates, which is expected to keep prospective buyers on the sidelines as they adjust to the new reality. That, coupled with existing property curbs, could cause prices to fall by up to 8 per cent in the next 12 months, analysts told TODAY.

Most property consultants are all agog about an office site in the Marina Bay area coming onto the market, despite the headwinds of an imminent glut from new completions in the next couple of years amid weakened demand. This is because those bidding for the site will be eyeing an office rental recovery beyond 2020, when any project on the plot will be completed.

The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) on Wednesday released the detailed sales conditions for the 1.1-hectare white site along Central Boulevard opposite Asia Square Tower 1 which is now available for application on the reserve list. It will be launched for tender only upon successful application by a developer.

Singapore parents will go to great lengths to get their children into popular schools. Primary 1 registration begins in the second half of each year.

The Ministry of Education's allocation system consists of seven phases. The first three phases - 1, 2A(1) and 2A(2) - assign priority to students affiliated with schools, which include children with siblings currently studying in the schools, whose parents and siblings are alumni of the schools, whose parents are members of advisory and management boards of the schools, or whose parents are teaching staff in the schools.

Sales of new private homes jumped 39 per cent last month from October, mainly due to the high take-up at the newly launched The Poiz Residences in Potong Pasir, a showing analysts said signalled steady underlying demand for projects that are in good locations and attractively priced.

Transaction volumes are likely to pick up next year, the analysts said, with prices expected to drop as developers are under pressure to offload unsold homes to avoid paying the Additional Buyer’s Stamp Duty (ABSD). Developers will be subject to an ABSD — introduced in Dec 2011 — if they fail to complete a residential project and sell all its units within five years.

An upcoming scheme to help public rental households own a home again could offer two-room flexi flats on shorter leases. Such leases are now only for elderly buyers.

This Fresh Start Housing Scheme includes a new grant, which may be disbursed in tranches subject to conditions, to motivate the new home owners to stay in jobs and put their children through school, for instance.

Amid all the gloom and doom surrounding the private residential market, a more contrarian view that has emerged now points to green shoots of recovery in the second half of 2016.

A continual downward drift in residential prices is almost a foregone conclusion in light of rising vacancies, impending interest-rate hikes and a slowing economy, consultants say.

But some believe transactions could see a rebound in the second half of 2016 as value emerges in some areas, such as the high-end market and secondary sales.

Warm bidding interest from developers is expected for a residential site in Siglap Road launched for public tender by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) on Thursday.

The site, in a residential area near East Coast Park and existing condominiums such as Mandarin Gardens, Fernwood Towers and Villa Marina, is also near Tao Nan School, CHIJ Katong Convent, Victoria School and Victoria Junior College.

Among the favourable attributes of the 1.93-ha land parcel is its proximity to the future Siglap MRT station, and the popularity of the East Coast residential enclave.
