According to OrangeTee & Tie head of research & consultancy Christine Sun, resale prices may continue to rise, although at a slower pace for the rest of the year, although, demand may continue to rise in areas with many newly-launched projects.
“As more private homes have been completed in recent months and the supply of new homes is slated to grow further, there could be some downward pressure on resale home demand,” Sun commented.
The highest price for a unit resold during the month was from The Marq On Paterson Hill for $29.5m, which translated to $4,677 psf. The highest in RCR was from Corals At Keppel Bay for $8.75m, whilst the record in OCR came from Mandarin Gardens for $2.7m.
