Singapore’s property market has improved drastically in its investment prospect rankings, going from near the bottom of the table in 2017 to third place in 2018.

This follows a huge resurgence in investor sentiment this year, particularly in the office and residential sectors - two markets that are said to have bottomed out, although a survey of 600 real estate professionals reveals some sceptics who think the "bottoming" may be premature.

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.

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.

National Development Minister Khaw Boon Wan’s recent comment that every Singaporean couple — regardless of their financial means — ought to have a chance of living in Housing and Development Board (HDB) flats signals a shift in the Government’s thinking and could have profound implications on housing policy, experts said yesterday.

Nevertheless, some of them noted that it was an inevitable shift given Singapore’s changing circumstances and the need for public housing to retain its role as a social institution here.

Veteran property developer Kwek Leng Beng fears Singapore could lose its edge as an investment destination unless the Government reviews its property cooling measures.
Mr Kwek, executive chairman of Hong Leong Group Singapore and City Developments, said foreigners were choosing to plough their investment dollars into countries like Britain, Australia and the US over Singapore, while Singaporeans have been investing abroad.

The property cooling measures adopted by Singapore from 2009-13 - known to economists as "macroprudential measures" - were an essential complement to monetary policy and have succeeded in containing the property market bubble, according to Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) managing director Ravi Menon.

However, they were introduced during a "highly unusual situation". As such, they will not be a permanent feature of policy and will only be used from time to time.

Real estate agency ERA is shifting its focus to selling new launches as weak property market sentiment eats away at the resale segment, its traditional mainstay.

"We're trying to get more new projects for the agents to sell," said Mr Jack Chua, chief executive of ERA.

"We also encourage agents to do more lower-quantum deals and focus on rental."

Singapore households have been given a clean bill of health as far as their debt is concerned. Despite warnings of an increasing exposure to mortgages, net wealth has grown robustly over the past decade and stands at about four times GDP, according to the Monetary Authority of Singapore Financial Stability Review 2013.

While household debt continues to increase, savings are piling up faster and massive cash deposits outweigh total liabilities, the review showed yesterday.

Bold claims by property experts of wielding the secret technique of buying homes with no cash outlay or owning multiple properties have proliferated in recent months, as investors look for ways to circumvent the successive rounds of cooling measures.

This has inevitably raised alarm bells in some quarters.

With previously locked-up homes getting ready to hit the market, it is timely to relook the sellers stamp duty (SSD), to prevent a head-on collision with the record number of private homes that are expected to make it to the market in 2016, say market observers.

The latest home loan rules that took effect on June 29 were not a fresh round of property cooling measures, said Deputy Prime Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam at a community event yesterday.

Mr Tharman, who is also Minister of Finance, said that the new Total Debt Servicing Ratio (TDSR) Framework is a long-term rule that is meant to get banks to practise prudence.

Singaporeans' obsession with property has pushed their debt levels to a steep 75 per cent of gross domestic product (GDP), doubling from 38 per cent in 2000.

Household leverage at 75 per cent of GDP is high relative to other countries in the region, says a Standard Chartered report on leverage in 12 Asian countries.

Only Australia, Korea and Malaysia are more leveraged than Singapore, it said.

Numbers just in show that the property market made history in 2012, with developers selling a record 22,290 private homes, excluding executive condos. The tally, which shattered the previous record of 16,292 units in 2010, was boosted by brisk sales in December when developers offloaded 1,410 units.

But history is unlikely to repeat itself in the wake of last Friday's cooling measures which target investment demand, even by Singaporeans, in addition to foreign buying.

More than 7,000 households are set to benefit from a $29 million facelift under the government's Estate Upgrading Programme (EUP). The properties, spread across eight private estates, will see the money spent on the upgrading of parks, playgrounds and widening of footpaths.

The Ministry of National Development (MND) announced yesterday that Goldhill, Mayflower Gardens and Yio Chu Kang Gardens, Cashew and Hazel Park Terrace, Greenleaf, Bartley Neighbourhood, Carmichael, Haig Road and Limau estates have been selected to benefit from the eighth EUP.

The many executive condominiums (ECs) heading to the market can be absorbed thanks to the expanded pool of buyers generated by changes to the income ceiling.

The Government increased the monthly household income ceiling from $10,000 to $12,000 in August last year so it is unlikely an oversupply will arise.

Singapore's property auction market had a quiet year, chalking up its lowest sales value in 15 years and selling barely one-tenth of the properties put up for auction, as a result of the government's property curbs.

24 out of a total of 377 properties - across various sectors such as residential, retail and industrial - that were put up for sale ultimately changed hands. The total sales value of these properties was $62.4 million, down 35 per cent from the $95.6 million recorded last year.

It would take an interest rate shock, poor GDP growth, or both, to bring down private property prices here noticeably over the next five years, a study said.

Analysts are anticipating that prices will fall as a record supply of land comes on stream and as the US Federal Reserve tightens monetary policy.

Last December's cooling measures have continued to deter overseas buyers from the property market.
Foreign purchases made up just 7 per cent of the private market in the three months to Sept 30, well down from their 18 per cent share for the whole of last year.

The trend was equally evident over the first nine months of the year with only 6 per cent of purchases coming from foreigners.
