New private home sales up 65% on-month in September

SINGAPORE: Developers sold 65 per cent more new private homes in September compared to August, according to data from the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA).

Excluding executive condominiums, 1,246 units of new private homes were sold in September, up from 756 in August as developers returned to the market with new launches after the Hungry Ghost Festival.

There was a sharp increase in transactions in the city fringes with 815 units sold.

Demand fell in the city, nearly half compared to August, with just 49 transactions.

While the number of new condo units sold in the suburbs was a third less than in August at 382 units, analysts noted the better figures were due mainly to two property launches in the city fringes.

And developers building smaller units have helped achieve higher prices on a per square foot (psf) basis.

Ku Swee Yong, Century's chief executive officer, said: "We expected the numbers to do well because of two well received launches -- Thomson Three and Sky Vue in Bishan.

"In fact, Sky Vue in Bishan has also probably set a new record price for the Bishan area, and that is at above S$2,000 psf."

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
