SRX Property: Condo resale prices rise 0.4% in December, 6.2% for all of 2017

RESALE prices of condominiums and private apartments continued to appreciate month-on-month, according to the latest flash estimates from real estate portal SRX Property on Tuesday.

The values of non-landed private homes last month rose 0.4 per cent from the previous month, at the same pace as November's revised rate, said SRX. It had earlier estimated a month-on-month price rise of 0.5 per cent in November.

The recent trend of island-wide increases was sustained: The core central region and outside the central region was up 0.3 per cent month-on-month, while prices in the rest of central region advanced 0.6 per cent.

For the full year, resale prices of condos and private apartments have moved up by 6.2 per cent, SRX figures show.

Not surprisingly, given the year-end holiday and festive season in December, the number of resales fell by 38.3 per cent to 895 units from 1,450 in November.

Year-on-year, the resale volume last month was 79.7 per cent higher compared to 498 units moved in December 2016.

They are off 56.3 per cent compared to the peak of 2,050 units resold in April 2010.

Government flash estimates released last week showed private home prices - for both new and resale properties, landed and non-landed - rose by 1 per cent last year, staging their first rebound since 2013.

Analysts said recent en bloc fever has likely pushed up private residential prices and transactions as cash-rich en bloc sellers look for replacement homes. The recovering economy and job market, plus the Government's tweak of its seller's stamp duty in March last year, also contributed to the steady upturn in the private property market.

Home buyers should not be swayed by the fear of missing out
When the government unexpectedly shortened the holding period for the Sellers Stamp Duty as well as lowered the rates in March 2017, some saw this as a prelude to easing the curbs.

These hopes were quickly dashed by Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) managing director Ravi Menon when he presented the central bank's annual report in June. He said the remaining cooling measureswere still necessary as underlying demand for private residential properties continues to be firm amid an environment of persistently low interest rates.
