Singapore private residential primary home sales registered 3 consecutive months of decline in June. Developers sold a total of 820 units of new homes in June, a decline of 20% m-o-m. This is the first time where the monthly sales fell below 1,000 units, after 3 consecutive months of sales surged above 1,000 units. The decline of primary home sales in the recent months was mainly due to the lack of new launches in the market. In June, developers only released additional 159 units, 53% less than the previous month.

IMG_1088c

We made a visit to conclude a consultancy work where we review the performance of one of our favoured real estate sector. The Yangon Serviced Apartment Rental Index registered a slight decline in 1st quarter 2017 though the overall market occupancy rate increased by 1.3 percentage points. Amazingly, the occupancy at the relatively newer offerings like Marina Residence, Golden Hill Tower and Shangri-la Serviced Apartment remained at near 100% in the quarter with long waiting list. Is this a right time to enter the market?
