Chart of the day: Vacancy stock resumes rise in Q2

The increase in vacancy stocks was attributed to a large number of completions.

This chart from Savills shows the number of vacant stocks and vacancy rate from 2017 to the second quarter (Q2) of 2022.

Following two quarters of decline, vacant stock expanded by 2.3% quarter-on-quarter (QoQ) in Q2 2022 to 20,765 units. The increase was mainly attributed to a 2.8% increase in the vacant stock of non-landed units as well as new completions in the quarter.

Savills said that as the vacant stock increased, the vacancy rate of private residential properties inched up marginally by 0.1 of a ppt to 5.4%, a reversal from the two consecutive quarters of decline.
