Altogether, takeup exceeded 850 units just in 1H of March.
Data from the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) on 15 March showed that new private home sales in February, excluding Executive Condominiums (ECs), fell to 708 units, down 65% from the 2,016 units sold in January. This was the lowest volume since December 2011 but Barclays said that recovery is expected in March.
"We expect some recovery in launch and sales figures in March as several major projects have already been launched and are making sales progress, with reported takeup already exceeding 850 units among the four major projects launched," said Barclays analyst Tricia Song.
