Q2 Landed homes sale highest since 2012

538 landed homes were sold in the second quarter – this is the highest quarterly volume since the fourth quarter of 2012. Overall, the number of landed homes sold has increased, driven by falling prices and limited supply of landed homes. URA flash estimates released recently indicated that prices of landed residential properties fell further by 0.4 % for Q2, down from a 1.8 % drop in the previous quarter.

The market for good class bungalows (GCBs) is lukewarm although the market for smaller bungalows in GCB areas is on a rise. Good class bungalows (GCBs) are the most prestigious segment of landed property in Singapore.

Leases running out for these old homes

The reality of an expiring lease is slowly seeping in for an estimated 30 households – out of 190 private landed homes – still living in the Geylang Lorong 3 estate.

Besides Geylang Lorong 3, there are at least three other private residential estates with fewer than 40 years left on the lease. At Jalan Chempaka Kuning in Bedok, a 70-year leasehold property with 17 years left, residents have been asking the land’s trustee to extend the lease at each annual general meeting.

Four private estates with less than 40 years of lease left:
