Is the growing divergence in prices of resale public housing flats and private homes snuffing out the Singaporean dream of owning a condominium?

While price data might underscore such fears, market watchers note that there are many mitigating factors to keep the upgrading momentum from owners of Housing & Development Board (HDB) flats going, who sell their flats to move to private housing.

First, the truth be told, price indices do not tell the whole story, said Edmund Tie & Company CEO Ong Choon Fah.

The HDB resale landscape has been uneven, with larger flats in mature and sought-after estates such as Toa Payoh, Bishan, Ang Mo Kio, Bukit Merah, Geylang and Queenstown holding up in prices or even registering an increase in Q4 2017 from Q4 2012, based on median resale prices published on the HDB website.

With a solid showing of private home sales last month, developers should close the year on a strong note, even as the government cautioned it could step in to temper overexuberance in the market.

Based on the latest data from the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) yesterday (Nov 16), developers sold some 969 new private residential homes and executive condominiums (ECs), an increase of 7 per cent from September.

Capitaland is pricing its new condo project in Bishan lower than its earlier next-door launch, Sky Habitat. It is also minting smaller units, and a higher proportion of smaller units, in a strategy seen as keeping lumpsum prices within reach of a bigger pool of buyers.

The two 99-year leasehold projects are near Bishan MRT Station.

A consortium comprising Hoi Hup Realty, Sunway Developments and SC Wong Holdings has narrowly emerged as the top bidder of a plum, 99-year leasehold residential site at Mount Sophia. It drew as many as nine bidders, on the higher end of consultants' expectations.

The trio's bid of $442.3 million - or $1,156.53 per square foot per plot ratio (psf ppr) - was just 0.06 per cent higher than that put in by a unit of China-based developer Fantasia Holdings Group and private equity firm F&H Fund Management. They offered $442 million, or $1,155.80 psf ppr.

Private homes costing under $1 million may now draw keener interest among Singapore permanent residents (PRs) who have held their residency status for less than three years, and who are now blocked from buying HDB resale flats, property consultants say.

They added, however, that the shift to the private property segment by this group of buyers is unlikely to raise the number of private-home transactions significantly.

Prices of small completed private apartments and condos in Singapore recovered in July after slipping for two consecutive months, latest flash estimates from the National University of Singapore (NUS) show.

Market watchers suggest the Total Debt Servicing Ratio (TDSR) framework, which took effect from June 29, could be driving buyers to the small-unit segment.

New rules governing permanent residents (PRs) buying HDB resale flats could send ripple effects through the markets for private homes and executive condominiums (ECs), say analysts.

As the rules announced on Tuesday make it harder for PRs to buy resale flats, they may seek mass-market condos instead.

Recent property measures have put a squeeze on the number of Housing Board dwellers buying private properties.
According to the latest early figures, buyers with HDB addresses picked up 3,700 new private homes in the first six months of the year. This seems to mark a slowdown from last year, which saw 9,985 such transactions across 12 months.

A similar trend has been seen in the private resale market. HDB upgraders bought just 1,550 homes in the first half of this year, compared to 5,261 for the whole of last year.

Developer sales surged 23.8 per cent month on month in June to 1,806 private homes (excluding executive condominiums or ECs). The sales volume was propped up by the 737 units that were sold at the J Gateway condo in Jurong on a single day on June 28 as its developer and buyers raced to beat the new Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) regulations that took effect the following day.

Going by the Urban Redevelopment Authority's (URA) latest figures, developers have moved 10,061 units in the first six months, or a monthly average of 1,677 units.

Most analysts expect developers' sales to moderate over the next few months after they hit a record 2,793 units in March, nearly four times the 712 units sold in February.

The record figure was due to pent-up demand arising from developers holding back launches in February in the aftermath of January's cooling measures and also due to the Chinese New Year festive period.

It was a day of contrasts for two 99-year-leasehold private condo releases yesterday. They both had a similar sort of average pricing - in the $1,400-$1,500 per square foot (psf) band - but one is in a city-fringe location, next to Potong Pasir MRT Station, while the other is in the suburbs, in Clementi. As expected, the project closer to town drew more buyers.

Tuan Sing, which decided to begin sales at its 332-unit Sennett Residence project yesterday evening - instead of on Saturday as earlier planned - had already sold 175 units by 10.30pm yesterday. Tuan Sing's CFO Chong Chou Yuen said the group had collected nearly 500 cheques and seeing there was "more than enough demand", decided to bring forward the launch date.
