Condominium

Top 3 Cheapest and Most Expensive Neighborhoods



Singapore’s private house price index, made up of private apartments and condominiums, has risen 18.6% since hitting a low during the onset of covid in the first quarter of 2020. This includes a rise of 3 .2% in the second quarter for a total increase of 3.9% for the first half of 2022.

Despite a rising interest rate environment, private property prices have maintained an upward trajectory due to undersupply caused by the low inventory of unsold units – which fell to 15,805 at the end of the second quarter of 2022 , less than half of the recent peak of 36,836 units as at the end of the first quarter of 2019 – and strong demand, which is largely bought by locals.

With prices for new launches such as Piccadilly Grand and [email protected] averaging over $2,000 per square foot, more homebuyers can look to the private resale market for better deals. As such, we have compiled a Singapore Condominium Price Guide based on the first half of 2022 to highlight the 3 cheapest and most expensive neighborhoods.
