We've all heard the rare tales of resale HDBs being priced in the 7 digits. Though it seems almost inconceivable, the tales are far from false. In recent years, million dollar HDB apartments have been up and rising due to hot locations coveted by the competitive buyer market. Believe it or not, even during Covid-19, multiple sales have been made with the minimum benchmark of $1 million with the highest record sold at $1.232 million in the form of an apartment in district 2's Pinnacle @ Duxton.

To curb your inevitable curiosity, we have collated a table of resale transactions of HDB that have surpassed the $1 million mark. So if your HDB has reached its Minimum Occupation Period (MOP) and you are either thinking of selling to make a profit or to upgrade, do reach out to us at 6223 2801 or Sales@auctionjia.com.sg!

Welcome to the finale to the trilogy series on April property resale transactions. In this series we discuss the resale gains and losses during circuit breaker which were segmented into private condo, executive condo and landed property. If you aren't caught up with the first two, here are the links to the first and second article: 1. April private condo resale transactions, 2. April executive condo resale transactions. In this article, as you may have already guessed, is all about landed property, or more specifically terrace houses, semi-detached houses and detached houses.

The tables below are courtesy of URA Realis and depict all the sale transactions that have taken place in April. Whether these properties have made gains or losses through their sales, the data is a great way to measure up expectations when it comes to whether you should sell or buy. So take the time to look through the tables below and are yourself, ask these the prices you're looking to buy or sell at?

Last week we delved into April's private condo resale transactions where we covered how the sales of private condos have been affected by the circuit breaker and whether they have made gains or losses. If you have not checked out that article, you can find it here. This week, we are covering resale property prices for executive condos during circuit breaker. So if your HDB is reaching its Minimum Occupation Period (MOP) and/or you are thinking of buying an executive condo which is due to be “semi-privatised”, read on as we have included caveat data showing just that as well as transacted data in the month of April.

In the next article, we will explore landed properties’ April caveat, so make sure to look out for that!

Recently, the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), the Association of Banks in Singapore (ABS) and the Finance Houses Association of Singapore (FHAS) have announced additional measures to support individuals who are suffering financially due to the Covid-19 pandemic. On top of the measures already being taken such as residential mortgage deferment that we had mentioned in our first article, this second package of measures explores relief options to other types of loan commitments, allowing individuals to continue to have access to affordable basic banking services.

Let's explore these measures together, shall we?

  1. Defer Repayment for:
    • Commercial and industrial property loans
    • Mortgage equity withdrawal loans
    • Renovation and student loans
    • Motor vehicle loans and hire-purchase agreements, subject to assessment
  2. Extend Loan Tenure for Debt Consolidation Plans (DCPs)
Reduce Debt
  1. Refinance investment property loans, without being subject to the total debt servicing ratio and mortgage servicing ratio

Are you looking for a new place to call home? That's great, because going house hunting in 2020 has never been easier. With a little help from modern technology, you can now view properties in the comfort of your own home through 3D virtual tours! This function allows you to walk through every corner of the homes you are keen on with just the touch of your finger. It's kind of like online shopping for houses, with its main perks being that it is super convenient and low commitment. This way, you don't have to worry about taking so much of your time going on multiple viewings just to narrow down your ideal home. With online virtual tours, you can do it all via e-viewing. When you're content with the houses you favour, you can then maximise your time by viewing only the properties that really matter. 

3D virtual tours are one of the key features we provide for our clients who are looking to sell their property. So if you're interested to sell your home with the added benefit of a virtual tour, make sure to reach out to us by emailing us at sales@auctionjia.com.sg or by calling us at 6223 2801.

So without further ado, let's check out Auctionjia's extensive list of 3D virtual tours which some may even call Singapore's largest collection of virtual tours! Happy browsing!
