SINGAPORE: Private property prices in Singapore rose 2.1 per cent in the fourth quarter of 2020 from the previous quarter, according to flash estimates by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) on Monday (Jan 4).

This compares with a 0.8 per cent increase in the previous quarter, said URA.

For the whole of 2020, private home prices rose by 2.2 per cent, compared with the 2.7 per cent increase in 2019.

Ms Christine Sun, head of research and consultancy at OrangeTee & Tie, said that the fourth-quarter increase was the steepest quarterly increase since the second quarter of 2018, when prices rose 3.4 per cent quarter-on-quarter.

Prices were driven by the Rest of Central Region, which rose 4.8 per cent in the fourth quarter, followed by the Core Central Region, where prices increased by 3.3 per cent. Prices in Outside Central Region increased 1.7 per cent in the quarter.

For the whole of 2020, prices in the Core Central Region fell by 0.2 per cent while prices in the Rest of Central Region and Outside Central Region rose by 5.1 per cent and 3.1 per cent respectively.

"There were a number of new projects launched in the fourth quarter of this year that could have driven prices higher in these regions," said Ms Sun.

"Prices have also increased at many launched projects," she said.


Investors around the world are gearing up for a steadier recovery in 2021 and that the development and efficacy of the vaccines could be a "game-changer" that may bring the COVID-19 pandemic under control, said Ms Sun. 

"Singapore’s housing market will continue to be boosted by ample liquidity still circulating in the financial system. Buyer sentiment may pick up further on the growing vaccine optimism and Phase 3 reopening," she added.

Property analyst Ong Kah Seng said with the start of Phase 3, it could make property buying sentiments more "upbeat" in 2021.

"Phase 3 could reflect potential economic stablisation and opportunities for longer term property price appreciation," said Mr Ong.

A number of "blockbuster launches" could be released in the luxury and city fringe areas, which may uplift the overall price index, said Ms Sun.

"Overall private home prices may rise by 1 to 4 per cent while prices of new homes may grow at a faster pace of between 2 and 5 per cent in 2021."

There has also been renewed interest in resale properties over the past few months, she added.

"Luxury homes and big resale units have been in demand, while attractively priced private resale homes in the mass market and city fringe areas have been snapped up.

"We anticipate demand for resale homes to pick up further this year while resale prices may increase around 1 to 4 per cent for the full year," said Ms Sun. Source: CNA/lk

Hong Kong's loss is Singapore's gain:

I predicted last year that Singapore property values would increase as soon as China came down on all the protesters and ended democracy.


Many multimillionaires and even billionaires have been quietly transferring money out of Hong Kong and into Singapore banks and real estate.

 Especially Hong Kong Govt officials who may be corrupt. In China you can be given the death sentence if you are a government official that is found guilty of corruption. 

At any rate this is not the first time that Singapore has enjoyed abnormal demand from Chinese interests.

 Many years ago, when I noticed spiralling prices in Singapore I issued a sell signal. Soon thereafter prices dropped 20% 30%.


Singapore does not pass Real Estate Acid Test: 

The problem with Singapore is most of their real estate does not pass my acid test.

 After 40 years of brokering, buying and selling real estate in many places in the world I have learned if you cannot buy a two or three-bedroom home or apartment and rent it out for positive cash flow the market is overpriced and will soon fall in any market in the world.


Hong Kong has violated that acid test for a decade as Mainland China Billionaires dumped money onto it. Recently I called it the "Bitcoin of the real estate markets" because it did not make any sense. 

Hong Kong residents who do not want to live under Chinas communist rule are now moving to other places such as Singapore, Taiwan, Vietnam and maybe even Cambodia. 

The smart Hong Kong investors will also be seeking even greener pastures in places such as Indonesia and especially Bali where we have been making positive cash flows for over 2o years.

 Instead of paying $1million for 2 or 3 Bedroom Home in Singapore they can spend $200,000 for the same size property in Bali.

Singapore’s Real Estate Bubble Will Bust:

 So, the bottom line is I expect that for most of this year Singapore prices will continue to rise. At some point in the next two years the bubble will burst when these new buyers realize that they cannot make positive cash flow on most of Singapore Real Estate.

 Simultaneously more Chinese will discover places such as Bali and Vietnam that should have exceptional cash flow and appreciation in the future.

Bali Distressed Properties 20% to 50% Off.

Not only do Bali properties make more sense than Singapore under normal conditions but especially now when you can purchase properties at 20% to 50% off.


Bali property values have been hit harder than other Asian locations because of the COVID - 19 crisis. Over 85 % of Bali’s population depends on tourism which is down over 70 % from last year. 

Asset rich and cash poor.

 Many Bali property owners are forced with the decision to sell their properties at huge discounts now since they have not had incomes for the last 10 to 12 months. 

They need the money to pay for things such as Childs education, healthcare, and simply basic living expenses. 

Most of the properties that they are selling are up over 200% to 1,000 % in the last 20 years so they will not mind giving up 20% to 50% of that.


Many are asset rich and cash poor.

 We are so bullish on Bali Real Estate for the Balance of this decade we spent considerable time and money to launch a brand-new high-tech website a few months ago called Best Bali Real Estate where you can look for properties without any keyboard input. 

You may simply use your mouse on your PC or finger on your mobile phone to locate the Best Bali Properties at the best prices in the Best locations.


It is also why we started a new section of our website called Bali Distressed Properties which are selling for 20% to 50% off prices one year ago.

 These will not last long as vaccines are distributed, and the world gains control over COVID-19. 

As soon as tourists begin to return to Bali, which could be as early as Easter, the huge discounts will disappear.

So, if you want to purchase properties at 20% to 50% off normal prices act now and click this link Bali Distressed Properties.

 Two of these properties have been sold to British and Australian interests in just the last few months. There are only a few remaining.
