Luxury non-landed residential sales fall 43.7% in 1H2022: Knight Frank


Top quantum sales remained to originate from new projects like Les Maisons, which clocked the leading three highest transactions in worth for 1H2022. Device prices varied from $4,953 to $5,461 psf (or $34.6 million to $59.8 million). The fourth greatest purchase in worth for 1H2022 was a resale device at The Nassim which was sold for $20 million, showing “demand for luxury-sized devices in beautiful ready to move-in problem”, says Keong.

“Transaction value for landed residences reached a total of $2.9 billion in 1H2022, a 46.9% decrease from $5.4 billion recorded in 2H2021,” states the Knight Frank report.

Keong prepares for demand for high-end non-landed houses, specifically fully-furnished larger-sized units prepared for immediate occupancy, to remain strong in 2022, as worldwide traveling go back to pre-pandemic levels.

Based on URA data, rates for landed residences remained to enhance in the 2nd quarter by 2.9%, bringing the cost growth to 7.3% for 1H2022. The half-yearly development was steeper than 6.3% in 1H2021, despite cooling steps passed in December in 2014.

Luxury non-landed domestic sales got to $1.1 billion in the initial half of this year, sliding by 43.7% from the second fifty percent of last year, according to a Knight Frank record released today (July 12).

Incongruity in between the expectations of purchasers and sellers, along with spikes in costs for landed houses, resulted in slower sales in 1H2022, describes Keong. Typical unit rates climbed by 14.5% over the past two years as the pandemic increased demand for bigger living spaces.

Keong expects purchase activity to moderate because of a weaker international outlook, with landed house rates enhancing by 10% in 2022.

” However, a lack of commercial supply in family-sized systems continued to limit sales,” says Nicholas Keong, head of exclusive workplace at Knight Frank. “Foreign buyers’ passion included the sale of 22 luxury apartments in Draycott Eight to an Indonesian family for a total estimated worth of $168 million.”

Lacklustre sales in the Great Course Bungalow (GCB) section proceeded from in 2015, declining by 55.3% in 1H2022 from 2H2021, triggered by weak economic problems and also cost resistance from sellers that hesitated to lower price expectations. Nonetheless, prime sites with appealing story dimensions were still being negotiated. Just recently, a GCB with a land dimension of 34,216 sq ft on 42 Chancery Lane was gotten by the daughter-in-law of Filipino mogul Andrew Tan for $66.1 million, according to Keong.

The very first quarter documented a sharp decrease of 50.6% q-o-q in prime non-landed household sales, because of added buyer’s stamp obligation walkings for foreign buyers imposed in December in 2014. In the second quarter, prime non-landed property sales recovered by 29.4% q-o-q as company views improved as well as capitalists wanted to Singapore as a safe haven in the midst of global uncertainty.
