The Singapore Income growth index has increased over the years and reached an equilibrium with the property price index. Unlike during the mid 2000s, property prices increased to a level which was out of reach to many Singaporeans. This makes prices of condo affordable and per month debt repayment manageable. With an average household income of S$13,000, a couple can choose to purchase a condo price at $2.3m. A good size 3 bedrooms cost around S$1.6m in today's market. Debt ratio versus income has dropped. The drop in interest rate has further reduced the per month repayment.
Not only has income in Singapore grown over the years, the household liabilities has dropped significantly for the past decade as well while the property price index held stagnant since the tightening of measures in 2013, TDSR was implemented. Property price index had been stagnant. We had lost 7 years of property prices growth. 
During this time, Singapore has structured itself also with a younger working population. This is important as the younger generation are able to drive better our GDP and as well as our consumption growth. Our GDP growth has well exceeded our property price growth during this period. 
Forbearance programmes are offered by banks for clients who need short term relief in their installment payment but I see that there will not be many people who need to be utilising this. If you are a buyer looking for investment, do whatever you can to build up some cash reserves, for up to a year would be good, to protect yourself from mortgages. 
Singapore shall continue with our productivity growth and further restructure our economy with new jobs.
The Economic Development Board (EDB) has managed to secure $13 billion in investment commitments in the first four months of 2020, which has surpassed the targets for the whole year. These investments come partly from electronics and infocomm media sectors. Thousands of jobs will be generated. Due to the change in the market, more jobs will be added to Singapore's capitalisation of the IT industry, namely, semiconductor as Singapore rolls out the 5G technology. We have changed our way of working and our daily lives with the recent pandemic, it has fastern the route on our reliance on the IT, so more jobs will be created in the e-commerce and the digital economic space. Singapore is moving forward with a greater productivity to remain competitive, because in the long run, this is what matters. 
Anti-speculation measures have also been implemented over the course of 8 measures. Average holding period for a property has been increased to 8 years. 
Additional stamp duty (ABSD) are imposed on buyers for 2nd and 3rd property onwards and slightly higher for PRs. Foreigners who want to have a stake in Singapore's properties will need to pay an additional of 20% in taxes.
Qualifying certificate and additional stamp duties (ABSD) are imposed on developers as well to ensure that there is no hoarding of land by them.
There is alot of buyers in the market looking to buy a real estate for investment. Please do keep an eye on the number of people buying a home, the available supply of homes for purchase in the market and foreclosure if any. The way that I see, it is unlikely to see a state of foreclosure in Singapore. I am certain to see more buyers than sellers. We have worked for this for the past decade and shall see ourselves coming out of the de-leveraging process. We shall see a gradual growth and sustainable price increase in Singapore homes.

EC- Article on Potential on ECs

Owners of Executive Condominiums (EC) stand a huge capital potential appreciation in due of the low entry price to purchase a unit compared to private condominiums.

After a period of 10 years, the EC will be privatised, changing its status to be on level to a private condominium. Foreigners will be able to purchase the unit then. Owners typically enjoy a capital gain after their EC is privatised.

The above table shows a significant increase in capital appreciation for EC owners. 

Purchasing an EC is extremely promising as we may look into such capital appreciation after it becomes privatised over time.

EC- Article on EC drawing more buyers

As the entry price for an Executive Condominium (EC) is much lower than a private condominium, demand for ECs has been on the rise. New EC units are generally 15-30% cheaper than private condominiums. In addition, first timer are entitled to receive a CPF Housing Grant of up to S$30,000. These make EC an extreme worthwhile asset to purchase. 

Physical features are similar when comparing between a new executive condominium with a private condominium. This include facilities such as gym, clubhouse, security guard, tennis court, swimming pool and many more.

With further developments in Sengkang and Seletar, residents of New EC iin Canberra Link will look into a long term investment with high profit margin.

EC- Article on price gap closing between EC and private

When doing a comparison between an executive condominium and private condominium, we know that both EC and private condominiums offer the same features such as swimming pool, gym, tennis court and many more, 

As resale executive condominiums are typically larger in space comparing to its counterpart and with a lower entry price, demand has increased for the resale ECs. This has led to a narrowing of price gap.

Owners of resale ECs have profited greatly in the market with their low entry price and they had enjoyed the bigger space and same facilities.


News North Region of Singapore

The woodland area is going to developed it a waterfront area lined with residential and recreational properties spanning 70 hectares. There is also going to be a business center not far from the waterfront which will contain the first business spark in the North office space especially or small and medium enterprises

Canberra MRT Station

The Canberra MRT station has started its operation in 2019 on the North-South Line and wil serve 17,000 households in the vicinity, reducing travelling time to the Central Business District (CBD) from 50 minutes to 40 minutes and is one stop to NorthPoint City Mega Mall in Yishun.

1) Canberra Link Executive Condominium (EC) site which has been put up for tender in June has garnered nine bids as of closing, with the highest bid reaching $271m coming from a consortium by Hoi Hup Realty and Sunway Developments, the Housing and Development Board (HDB) revealed. Parc Canberra 

Considering the nine bids, Knight Frank Singapore senior director and head of research Lee Nai Jia said that the site, which is near to the upcoming Canberra MRT station eyed for completion by December 2019, has received more interest compared to the last land parcel sold via public tender in October 2014, which only attracted 2 bids.

Hoi Hup Realty and Sunway Developments submitted the highest bid for the Canberra Link executive condominium (EC) tender for S$271 million, or S$558.22 psf per gross floor area, in a hotly-contested tender that drew nine bidders in all.

The second highest bidder was Greatview Investment and MCC Land with a bid of S$258.9 million or S$533.28 psf. The lowest bidder was JBE Development with a bid of S$201.8 million or S$415.72 psf.

Also taking part in the tender was Qingjian Realty subsidiary CNQC Realty (Treasure) Investment with a S$252.8 million bid, a tie-up between Evia Real Estate (8) and Gamuda (Singapore) for a S$250.9 million offer and a CDL Constellation (City Developments' wholly owned subsidiary) and TID Residential offer of S$245.8 million.

UED Residential and TSKY (Jervois), a subsidiary of Tiong Seng Holdings, bid S239.2 million; Kheng Leong's Peak Land bid S$228.3 million and Sim Lian Land offered S$205 million.

2)  Another 99 year leasehold executive condominium or EC housing site along Canberra Link in the Sembawang area, has drawn eight bids.

The highest bid, from MCC Land (Singapore), was at S$233.89 million, translating to about S$566 psf ppr. This pipped the second-highest bid of S$233.5 million from a partnership between City Developments unit CDL Constellation and TID Residential. 

MCC Land's chief executive officer Tan Zhiyong said the group had previously developed two EC projects (One Canberra and The Canopy)  as well as project managed two other EC developments for other developers (Forestville and Northwave). All four EC projects are in Singapore's north.

"Leveraging on our experience, we are confident of developing an exciting EC project of about 385 units on the latest site, which will reflect the rapidly evolving landscape of this northern estate. Overall, the EC market holds considerable prospects in the next few years with a continued controlled supply and widening EC-private condominium price gap," he added.

The second highest bid was offered by CDL Constellation and TID Residential at $233.5 million. Also bidding for the Canberra Link site was a tie-up between Hoi Hup Realty and Sunway Developments, which offered S$223.3 million for the site. Sim Lian Land bid S$218 million.

The lowest bid, from JBE Development, came in at slightly more than S$178 million or S$430.80 psf ppr.


Bids for URA GLS residential site tenders reflects developers’ caution amid uncertain times

The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) announced on March 3 that it has closed tenders for two residential sites at Canberra Drive.

Canberra Drive parcel A

Canberra Drive Condo B

This marks the fifth batched URA residential site tenders since November 2017 and presents three mass-market residential sites of different bite sizes to developers.

Mr Desmond Sim CBRE’s Head of Research for Southeast Asia commenting on the URA residential site tenders said:

“Canberra Drive (Parcels A and B)
These two GLS sites were launched for sale under the Confirmed List of the GLS programme for the second half of 2019. They were initially put on the Reserve List of the first half of the 2019 GLS programme as a single plot, but are now split into two parcels on the confirmed list. This will ensure that the sites are more digestible and will appeal to more developers.

Parcel B is almost twice as large as Parcel A, yielding up to 455 units while Parcel A can yield 220 units. The sites are attractive considering their proximity to Canberra MRT station, Sembawang Shopping Centre and Sun Plaza.

Recent transactions include Kandis Residence which was sold at a median price of S$1,254 psf in Q1 2020, with a relatively well take-up of about 75%. The most recent GLS sites awarded in the area were two EC sites at Canberra Link awarded at $558 psf ppr to Hoi Hup/Sunway, and $566 to MCC Land.

Nearby comparable private condominium projects such as Eight Courtyards (completed in 2014), The Nautical (2015) and Canberra Residences (2013) traded at SGD900-1,000 psf over the past 12 months. In February, newly-launched 496-unit Parc Canberra EC achieved sales of 64% (316 units) at an average price of SGD1,085 psf.

These two sites should benefit from the Canberra MRT which turned operational since 2 November 2019, and Bukit Canberra, an upcoming sports and community hub in Sembawang set to open progressively from 2020.
