Buyers also continued to find value in existing projects such as Park Colonial, Riverfront Residences and Stirling Residences which had median prices of $1,739 psf, $1,324 psf and $1,723 respectively, ERA Realty Network executive officer Eugene Lim commented.

“The gap between the number of units being launched and sold within the same month have narrowed since the beginning of this year,” Christine Sun, Orange Tee & Tie head of research and consultancy, said in a statement. “This trend may indicate that developers are generally adopting a more cautious stance in pacing the number of launched units in sync with what the market can absorb every month to avoid an oversupply of units in the market.”
