Singapore’s private property market experienced robust growth but was muted midway by property cooling measures. We list down the key highlights in our 2018 property market roundups and our outlook for 2019.

Singapore’s private property market saw a steep rebound from the fourth quarter of 2017 after many quarters of decline in its Property Price Index (PPI) since the fourth quarter of 2013.

Figures from the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) showed that the Lion City’s PPI surged by 11.0 points from 138.7 in the fourth quarter of 2017 to 149.7 points in the third quarter of 2018.

The Surprising Ways China Affects the U.S. Economy

China's economy produced $23.12 trillion in 2017, based on purchasing power parity. It's the world's largest economy. The European Union is second, at $19.9 trillion. The United States fell to third place, producing $19.3 trillion.

China has 1.38 billion people, more than any other country in the world. China is still a relatively poor country in terms of its standard of living. Its economy only produces $16,600 per person, compared to the U.S. gross domestic product per capita of $59,500.

[SINGAPORE] Singapore home prices may rise as much as 10 per cent by the end of next year and are on track to double by 2030 as faster income growth overpowers recent property curbs and higher interest rates, according to Morgan Stanley.

Home prices rose in four of the five previous rate hike cycles, Morgan Stanley analysts said in a note to clients. Faster economic growth, the city-state's attraction as a global hub and demand from buyers flush with cash from en-bloc redevelopments will underpin the housing market, they said.

PRIVATE economists unanimously fingered higher US-China trade tensions as a downside risk to Singapore’s growth, as they dialled down their forecast for 2019 in a recent industry poll.

Economists expect Singapore’s gross domestic product (GDP) growth to ease to 2.6 per cent in 2019, from an estimated 3.3 per cent in 2018, according to results out on Wednesday from a quarterly survey by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).

Growth expected at 2.6% instead of 2.7%; manufacturing could continue to be a drag

SINGAPORE is headed for a slowdown, private-sector analysts said, while agreeing that the US-China trade war is the top risk to the economy.

Growth in next year's gross domestic product (GDP) is expected to ease by a wider margin than was projected three months ago, according to the latest quarterly survey by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) released on Wednesday.

The private housing supply in Singapore is expected to surge next year as $10.5 billion worth of en bloc deals were concluded in the first half of 2018, with many of the sites expected to launch next year, according to the PropertyGuru Property Market Outlook 2019.

This includes the highly anticipated Pearlbank Apartments in Outram, which was acquired for $728 million by CapitaLand and Pacific Mansion in River Valley, which was sold to a GuocoLand-led consortium for $938 million.

SINGAPORE - While trade tensions between the United States and China could ease, key economists shaved more off their forecast for 2019 economic growth, the latest Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) survey shows.

A big downside risk is protectionism, they added.

For 2018, the economy is expected to grow by 3.3 per cent, a tad above the 3.2 per cent forecast made in September.

But growth is tipped to slow to 2.6 per cent in 2019, down from the 2.7 per cent expansion predicted previously, according to the survey findings released on Wednesday (Dec 12).

These figures show economists agree with the Government's forecast of between 3 and 3.5 per cent growth for 2018, and slowing to between 1.5 and 3.5 per cent next year.

The latest poll show that rising trade protectionism remains a key concern among the 23 economists and analysts polled.

With 2018 drawing to a close, Cushman & Wakefield’s Christine Li gives a snapshot of how next year could pan out. The private housing market may not be as gloomy as widely perceived.

 
During the weekend of Nov 3 and 4, MCL Land’s preview of Parc Esta in Eunos drew more than 5,000 visitors. That weekend, two projects were launched and registered relatively healthy sales. Roxy Pacific Holdings sold 45 out of a total of 98 units at the freehold Arena Residences on Guillemard Lane. The average price of units sold was $1,750 to $1,850 psf. City Developments (CDL) sold 160 of the 240 units released at the 721-unit Whistler Grand on West Coast Vale, with units priced at an average of $1,380 psf.

SINGAPORE - The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) has urged prospective property buyers to exercise caution when considering taking up loans to fund purchases amid rising interest rates and upcoming supply.

Household debt grew 3 per cent year-on-year in the third quarter, mainly on the back of a 3.4 per cent increase in housing loans in the same period, MAS said in its annual Financial Stability Review released on Friday (Nov 23). The rise in household debt is in line with income growth, it added.

SINGAPORE - The two main carparks at Holland Village will be closed on Feb 1 next year when a temporary road will be built to link the enclave and an Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) carpark off Holland Drive.

According to a circular distributed to businesses in the area this week, the developers behind an upcoming mixed-use development to be built on the space said most of the open-air carpark comprising 317 spaces will be closed from Nov 1 for diversion of water and gas pipes, and construction works.

The US economy is doing well and the Federal Reserve has raised interest rates for the first time in almost a decade in a bid to tighten money supply.

While the rate increase was small at 0.25% per year and widely anticipated, it is highly likely that more increases will follow. As the liquidity in the US financial market is reduced, there could be far-reaching implications on the global economy.

Singapore property investments will also be impacted by the Fed’s new policy as interest rates here mirror the increase in the US.

The US Federal Reserve (Fed) increased interest rates by 25 basis points in March for the sixth time since 2015. This simply means interest rates in the US have increased by 0.25%, and are currently hovering between a range of 1.50% and 1.75%.

Further, the Fed signalled there would be up to two more rate hikes in 2018, and it raised its forecast on continuing rate hikes through to 2020.

The recent cooling measures came as a shock, but they aren’t entirely without merit. Even if the link between our economy and the property market aren’t always well defined, there have been reasons for worry. Furthermore, market watchers haven’t been enthusiastic about the economy for a while. Here are three key external factors that are shaping our property market.

SINGAPORE: With all the turmoil of a Trump presidency and Brexit, we wouldn’t be surprised if analysts eventually suggest hiding your money in a sock.

In the aftermath of the last crisis years (2009 to 2013), the Singapore property market — particularly its luxury segment — was considered a safe haven investment destination and recorded huge price increases.

But will that still be the case today? It certainly seems so. Singapore properties surprisingly recorded price gains for luxury properties in the third quarter of 2018, outshining even Hong Kong.

Clearly, and despite the cooling measures, well-heeled investors are still seeing value and opportunity in the Singapore housing market.

Executive Condominiums (ECs) are always popular; how else can you can buy private properties with the help of government subsidies? For first-time homeowners above a certain income, ECs* are the logical choice. This is especially so for those who exceed the income ceiling for BTO flats ($12,000 vs $14,000 for ECs) but find the price point of non-EC condos out of their reach. On top of that, they could also have reservations about buying a resale flat. So, ECs have the spotlight all to themselves right now. Bookmark this page to stay updated on all the EC launches to look out for in 2019 and 2020 (there are no launches in 2018).

Most cities in UBS Group's Global Real Estate Bubble Index are overvalued or at risk of a bubble, according to the Swiss bank's 2018 report on housing prices.

Chicago is the only undervalued housing market in the 20-city index, while Milan, Singapore and Boston are deemed fairly valued, the report released on Thursday shows. Ten cities, from New York to Sydney to Stockholm, are overvalued, while six are in bubble-risk territory, with Hong Kong's market the most inflated. A year ago, New York had been scored as fairly valued.

SINGAPORE: Private-sector economists have maintained their growth forecast for the Singapore economy this year at 3.2 per cent though downside risks including trade protectionism continued to loom large, the latest quarterly survey from the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) showed on Wednesday (Sep 5). 

This forecast falls within the Government’s estimates for full-year gross domestic product (GDP) to come in between 2.5 and 3.5 per cent. Official data released last month showed second-quarter GDP coming in at a slightly better-than-expected 3.9 per cent from a year ago.

SINGAPORE: The new property cooling measures announced on Thursday (Jul 5) were not entirely unexpected given the recent euphoria in the housing market, but the speed and timing at which the measures were introduced as well as the extent of the curbs were “heavy-handed”, some analysts told Channel NewsAsia.

Among the curbs are a 5 percentage point hike in Additional Buyer's Stamp Duty (ABSD) rates for citizens and permanent residents (PRs) buying second and subsequent homes, as well as a 5 percentage point tightening for loan-to-value limits for all housing loans granted by financial institutions .
