The Singapore home prices dropped for the tenth quarter, posting the longest losing streak in almost two decades, as tighter mortgage curbs cooled the demand in Asia’s second-most expensive housing markets. An index, tracking private residential prices, fell 0.7% by the end of first quarter of 2016, from the previous quarter, matching the longest series of losses since 1998. Singapore’s real estate sector is expected to pick pace by the end of 2016. The real estate market in the region is poised for growth at an estimated CAGR of XX.X% over the forecast period, from 2016 to 2021. The projected market value of the real estate sector in 2021 is USD XXXX.XX million.
Foreign demand is driving the sector in Singapore which is responsible for the largest real estate deals. The deals include the sale of Asia Square Tower 1 to Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) for USD 3.4 billion, Indonesian tycoon Tahir buying Straits Trading Building for USD 560 million, etc. Moreover, the difference between the rich and poor is on the decline leading to a growing middle-class population which can afford to buy properties. This has been another major driver for the sector.
Restraints and Challenges
The biggest challenge that the real estate market in Singapore faces is the moderately growing economy, coupled with imbalances in demand and supply across various sectors. These factors are continuingly placing pressure on the occupancy and rents. A weakening occupier market and concerns surrounding rising interest rates will keep investment activity measured. Against this challenging backdrop, however, there remain opportunities for landlords, tenants, and investors.
Investing in real estate is considered as one of the best investments, globally. The size and scale of the real estate market make it an attractive and lucrative market for many investors, who can invest directly in the physical real estate or choose to invest indirectly through managed funds. Investing directly in real estate involves purchasing residential or commercial properties to generate income or for resale at a future time. Though it is evident that currently, Singapore’s real estate market is going through a rough patch, it is expected to experience a good growth by the end of 2016.
