Overall resale prices dipped 0.5% MoM but rose 0.1% YoY. Prices of resale condos located in the Rest of Central Region (RCR), Outside Central Region (OCR), and Core Central Region (CCR) fell across the board, registering declines of 1.1%, 0.3% and 0.1%, respectively.

CCR and RCR recorded YoY price decreases of 2.4% and 0.9%, respectively, whilst OCR recorded a YoY price increase of 1.8%.

The highest transacted price for a resale unit in the month was achieved at Boulevard Vue, where a high-floor unit was transacted at $17.5m. In RCR, the highest transacted price was a unit at Dakota Residences resold at $4.2m. In OCR, the highest transacted price was a unit at Bayshore Park resold at $3.3m.

OrangeTee & Tie head of research & consultancy Christine Sun commented, “The supply of new homes has increased since the launch of many new projects in recent months. The rising competition for potential buyers has probably caused some sellers to lower their asking prices for their resale homes.”
