Martin Place Residences’ resale prices continue to soften

In District 9 alone, there were 22 transactions held from June 12 to 21. Apart from the new OUE Twin Peaks, Martin Place Residences that was officially completed last 2011 also saw a heightened activity.

This residence is located at Martin Place in River Valley Road. Recent series of resale didn’t come as a surprise to some real estate agents marketing units of this property. They attribute it to a site next door which URA had launched for sale last April.

According to an anonymous agent, some of the owners of this residence do not relish living next to a construction site for the next three to five years.

The tender of that site has closed last June 28 and has attracted 13 bids. The highest bid came from the GuocoLand.

There weren’t also new launches within the vicinity. The only residential place in the vicinity is the Martin Place Residences that was fully sold five years ago. Some of the units sold recently in resale are three 3-bedroom units; one is 1,722 sq ft for $3.42 million ($3.44 million before), a 1,421 sq ft for $2.92 million ($3 million before), and a 1,421 sq ft for $2.925 million ($2.11 million before). This translates into a capital upside of 28.4% for over the past 7 years.

Bugis Village Singapore

The first resale transaction in a new residence at Bugis was sold at a loss

Last April 7, 2015, A URA’s (Urban Redevelopment Authority) caveat data was released and it is said that a 1,432 square feet at DUO Residences was sold in a secondary market at a loss of 534,050 dollars in March. It was first resale transaction for this beautiful project of M+S Pte Ltd.

The unit was said first bought on December 10 in the year 2013 of its previous owner at 2,934,050 dollars or 2,049 dollars per square foot and was slightly resold over a year March 18 last year at 2.4 million dollars or 2,049 dollars per square foot.

This is M+S Pte Ltd’s first project that is expected to be completed on 2017. This is a joint venture between Malaysia’s Khazanah Nasional and Singapore’s Temasek Holdings.

The initial launch of this development was a success from its developers as it sold for about 87 percent of its released units. It was reported February last year that it has already sold 94% of its total units including all of its studio and 1-bedroom apartments.

More ‘fire sales’ will be expected from overstretched home owners with the rising interest rates. Larger apartment units are likely to get affected with the tightening of loan policies as seen from abortive transaction as the amount of property price has become limiting factor.

Out of 11,325 transactions, 86.6% that were recorded in 2014 were 1.5 million dollars and below.
