Luxury non-landed residential sales fall 43.7% in 1H2022: Knight Frank

Based upon URA data, prices for landed homes continued to raise in the 2nd quarter by 2.9%, bringing the price growth to 7.3% for 1H2022. The half-yearly development was steeper than 6.3% in 1H2021, regardless of cooling down measures established in December in 2015.

Top quantum sales continued to come from new jobs like Les Maisons, which clocked the leading 3 highest possible transactions in value for 1H2022. Unit costs ranged from $4,953 to $5,461 psf (or $34.6 million to $59.8 million). The fourth highest transaction in value for 1H2022 was a resale unit at The Nassim which was sold for $20 million, indicating “need for luxury-sized units in pristine ready to move-in condition”, says Keong.

High-end non-landed property sales got to $1.1 billion in the first half of this year, sliding by 43.7% from the 2nd fifty percent of last year, according to a Knight Frank record released today (July 12).

Keong anticipates purchase task to regulate as a result of a weaker worldwide expectation, with landed house rates increasing by 10% in 2022.

Lacklustre sales in the Great Course Bungalow (GCB) sector proceeded from in 2014, declining by 55.3% in 1H2022 from 2H2021, caused by weaker financial conditions as well as rate resistance from vendors who hesitated to lower price assumptions. Nevertheless, prime sites with appealing story sizes were still being transacted. Recently, a GCB with a land dimension of 34,216 sq ft on 42 Chancery Lane was bought by the daughter-in-law of Filipino magnate Andrew Tan for $66.1 million, according to Keong.

Difference between the expectations of customers and vendors, as well as spikes in premiums for landed houses, led to slower sales in 1H2022, discusses Keong. Typical system costs climbed by 14.5% over the past two years as the pandemic enhanced demand for bigger space.

Keong prepares for need for luxury non-landed houses, specifically fully-furnished larger-sized devices all set for prompt occupancy, to stay solid in 2022, as worldwide travel returns to pre-pandemic levels.
