Home loan growth is expected to slow further this quarter amid weakening residential property sales, analysts said yesterday.
However, prices are likely to remain elevated until at least the middle of next year despite several rounds of property cooling measures in recent years, they said.

The central bank said on Tuesday that home loan growth here had slowed, and the number of borrowers with unreasonably high levels of housing debt had improved after the measures.

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.

The government will make more two-room flats available to singles, following the overwhelming response to the July launch of Build-To-Order (BTO) flats, during which the 519 units launched attracted 8,800 singles.

The Housing and Development Board (HDB) will, in addition to the 190 BTO units to be rolled out this month, also launch all its remaining two-room flats in non-mature estates from previous BTO exercises.

Buyers flocked to the latest two executive condominiums (ECs) to hit the market after new mortgage lending rules introduced in June dampened buying interest in private properties.

Analysts attributed the demand to the way Housing Board rules are structured that make it easier for buyers of ECs to seek the maximum loan quantum under the new lending rules, compared with private properties. ECs are a hybrid of private-public housing sold with HDB restrictions, but turn private after 10 years.

Kwek Leng Beng, executive chairman of City Developments, says that unless the global and domestic economies rebound strongly and curbs on foreign buyers for private residential property sales are reviewed, the group expects some oversupply in the Singapore residential sector from next year onwards.

The final count was 58. That was the number of singles who applied for each two-room flat available to them in the Housing Board's latest Build-To-Order launch, which closed at midnight on Monday.

That means more than 8,500 singles have jumped on the up to about 155 flats in Sengkang and Yishun reserved for them.

Executive condominium (EC) developers are again pulling out all the stops in the battle for buyers as competition intensifies in the second half of this year.

Developers of projects under this very popular public-private housing hybrid are no longer allowed to build gargantuan penthouse suites after unit-size restrictions were imposed in January.

Residents in the area are served by popular shopping centres such as nex mall, Heartland Mall and Hougang Mall, and newer infrastructure such as the scenic Punggol Waterway.

Regulatory measures taken to cool the property market have raised the purchase costs of luxury residential developments to the second-highest in the world for foreign buyers.

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.

A quiet corner in a Hougang neighbourhood came to life last weekend after an unusual three-storey corner terrace house was put up for sale.

There was a giant balloon in the garden. Then a swarm of property agents - 30 at one point - suddenly descended on the place. There were people pacing up and down with placards announcing a going rate of $470 per sq ft (psf).

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.

The number of Housing Board resale flats changing hands dropped drastically last month - a sign that the new cooling measures announced at the start of the year are beginning to kick in.

There were around 750 resale deals last month, the lowest activity in any month since the Singapore Real Estate Exchange (SRX) started tracking prices in 2007. This is less than half the 1,740 transactions in February last year.

The move to abolish the tax vacancy refund will put more pressure on individuals and companies, particularly those with high-end residential asset portfolios.

This, combined with progressive tax rates which will see the government raising property tax rates for high-end residential homes with the largest increases applying to investment properties, means that high-end developers could potentially be hit with a double whammy.

Corporate entities seeking to avoid paying the additional buyers' stamp duty (ABSD) by buying shares in special purpose vehicles that own properties could come under the scrutiny of the tax authorities.

The Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS), in a letter responding to a Business Times article on such deals, said: "When the company buys a residential property, it will be subject to ABSD, and at the highest ABSD rate of 15 per cent. Under the Stamp Duties Act, the Commissioner of Stamp Duties may disregard or vary any arrangement to counteract any reduction in or avoidance of duty payable by that person.

Showflats were quiet yesterday, following a surge of customers last Friday eager to beat the new cooling measures which kicked in on Saturday.

About 20 residential properties could enjoy an extended project completion period under new rules announced by the Singapore Land Authority (SLA).

Usually, developers with any foreign shareholder have up to seven years to sell all the units in a new project - or they could face hefty charges for an extension.

But the rules are being relaxed as the developers concerned had responded to a government call in 2008 to defer the redevelopment of collective sale sites.

The elite end of the residential property sector, the bungalow market, has slowed since last year after cooling measures and tighter financing rules came in.

But analysts said prices were relatively resilient despite weak market sentiment stemming from poor global economic conditions.

Fewer good-class bungalows (GCBs) changed hands this year but, on average, the selling prices were higher.
There are about 2,400 GCBs in Singapore in 39 gazetted areas, such as Nassim, Dalvey and Tanglin.

The slowdown came amid a halving in deals originating from the private sector to $3.7 billion so far in Q4 from $7.2 billion the previous quarter.
