The August 2022 BTO exercise closed on Sept 5, with 39,136 applications for the 4,993 units introduced for sale. This has to do with 30% greater than the approximately 27,000 applications obtained throughout the May BTO exercise when 4,583 units were introduced, indicates Christine Sun, higher vice director of research and analytics at OrangeTee & Tie.

Sun associates the appeal of the properties in mature estates to the sufficient facilities as well as proximity to MRT stations. “The Tampines property likewise has among the quickest end durations, around 36 months,” she includes.

Sun assumes the better range of applicants may mirror more buyers relying on the BTO market, considered that BTO units are currently a lot more affordable contrasted to climbing rates of resale apartments and also personal residences. “There have not been lots of brand-new personal house launches in current months. For that reason, customers currently have lesser housing choices, especially for cash-strapped purchasers,” she includes.

While PLH units were oversubscribed, Sun states the application rate was lower than in previous PLH debut. “Perhaps the pool of customers has actually reduced given that numerous PLH design apartments have actually been launched over the past year, and also some individuals may have currently gotten a unit in the earlier BTO exercises,” she believes.
