Sales of New Launch Private Homes Doubled in May 2014


Sales of new launch private homes almost doubled from April to May 2014 with 1470 units sold according to the URA. If ECs are included, the total units sold last month would be 1528 units compared to 797 in April 2014. This has been attributed to the larger number of new homes launched in May - 1790 which is greater than 3X the number launched in April (600 units).

Sales in the Core Central Region was 2%, Rest of Central Region (RCR) 34% and Outside Central Region (OCR) 64%. Three developments - Coco Palms, Commonwealth Towers and The Panorama made up 65.6% of sales. Two points may be noted for these properties - lower psfs and location. Last month Sky Habitat and Laveville were the top sellers.

In June, several factors may lead to lower sales - school holidays and World Cup Fever and although developers may launch ahead of the lunar 7th month period in August.
