According to PropertyGuru’s Singapore Property Market Report Q1 2023, the number of private homes sold decreased in Q4 2022. While transaction volumes usually drop in the last quarter of the year, this year saw a bigger-than-normal dip than in Q4 2018 and Q4 2019 (i.e. during pre-COVID times).
This could be because of factors including ‘revenge travelling’ following the lift of COVID-19 travel restrictions, lack of new condo launches, and the new 15-month wait-out period for private home buyers ‘downgrading’ to HDB flats announced during the September 2022 property cooling measures.
Nonetheless, let’s take a look at the top 10 best-selling condos in Q4 2022.
Top 10 Best-Selling Condos in Q4 2022
1. Perfect Ten: High Life on District 10
Boasting freehold status in one of the most affluent districts in town, Perfect Ten is an upcoming development situated right between Newton and Stevens MRT stations. Residents will be a stone’s throw away from town and have no problem travelling further out with access to the Downtown line (DTL), North-South Line (NSL) and Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL).
Given its address, it’s no surprise that this condominium continued to be on the best-selling list this quarter. Doors are estimated to open to residents for its 230 units when it receives its Temporary Occupation Permit (TOP) in 2026.
