"We anticipate that the next wave of capital could continue into the Singapore property market next year with more Chinese capital flowing south."
Ms. Sun added that mortgage rates are likely to remain low or fall next year, which should help "boost" housing demand at current levels: "As such, we estimate that around 9,000 to 9,800 new homes, excluding EC, could be traded in 2020."
Mr. Desmond Sim, CBRE's head of research in Southeast Asia, noted that 51 projects were launched this year - the busiest in the past five years. He said most of the new launches this year have sold below 50%, so developers are expected to focus on clearing existing inventory while remaining cautious in competing. land contractor.
