Monthly home sales in Singapore dive 48pc on property curbs

2015-04-02 00:34:56

SINGAPORE, March 16 — Singapore home sales in February slumped 48 per cent from a year ago as lending curbs stemmed purchases.

Developers sold 382 units last month compared to 739 units in the same period a year earlier, according to data released today by the Urban Redevelopment Authority. Singapore’s annual home sales dropped to a six-year low in 2014 as property policies hurt demand. Sales fell by half to 7,316 units last year from 2013, the lowest since 2008, according to data from the authority.

The government began introducing residential property curbs in 2009 as low interest rates and demand from foreign buyers raised concerns that the property market was overheating. Prices surged 40 per cent in the five years to 2013 to a record, prompting some of the strictest measures, including a cap on debt at 60 per cent of a borrower’s income, higher stamp duties on home purchases and an increase in real estate taxes.

Residential prices fell four per cent in 2014, the URA figures showed.

Among developers that began offering projects in February was Sims Urban Oasis Pte, which sold 112 of 200 units at its development in the city’s east, according to data from the authority. — Bloomberg
