August BTO exercise sees strong demand for larger Ang Mo Kio and Tampines flats

Big apartments in mature estates saw the highest possible application rates. 4- and five-room flats at Sun Plaza Spring in Tampines saw application rates of 22.3 and also 26.3 for the 150 and 177 readily available flats, each. For Central Weave@AMK in Ang Mo Kio, the 398 four-room flats signed up a 12.6 application rate, while five-room and Three-Generation (3Gen) condos completing 372 units acquired a 17.5 application rate.

She includes that the 10-year minimum occupation duration for PLH flats as well as extra rigorous selling criteria may have deterred customers. PLH apartment proprietors undergo a clawback aid of 6% when they offer their houses for the very first time.

Both deals launched under the prime location public housing (PLH) version– Havelock Hillside and also Alexandra Vale, both located in Bukit Merah– saw application rates of 2.7 for three-room condos and also 6.1 for four-room units. A total amount of 8,883 applications were received for the 1,651 PLH units opened.

While PLH units were oversubscribed, Sun states the application rate was less than in previous PLH kick off. “Probably the pool of purchasers has actually shrunk considering that several PLH model apartments have actually been released over the past year, as well as some individuals might have currently bought a unit in the earlier BTO exercises,” she says.

Amongst the flats in non-mature estates launched, the project in Woodlands saw the greatest application prices at 6.6 for two-room Flexi apartments, 8.1 for three-room flats, and 11.7 for four-room homes. At the same time, flats at the projects released in Choa Chu Kang saw application rates between 2.0 to 2.6, while the project in Jurong East saw application rates in between 4.1 to 6.7.

Sun attributes the appeal of the properties in mature estates to the adequate services as well as distance to MRT terminals. “The Tampines property additionally has one of the fastest completion durations, around 36 months,” she adds.

The August 2022 BTO exercise closed on Sept 5, with 39,136 applications for the 4,993 units introduced to buy. This is about 30% more than the approximately 27,000 applications acquired during the May BTO exercise when 4,583 units were launched, notes Christine Sun, top vice director of research and analytics at OrangeTee & Tie.

Sun assumes the higher range of applicants may reflect a lot more customers looking to the BTO market, considered that BTO units are presently more affordable contrasted to increasing costs of resale condos and private residences. “There have actually not been numerous new personal residence open in current months. As a result, purchasers currently have much less real estate options, especially for cash-strapped buyers,” she includes.
