A five-room Real estate Board loft device in Treelodge @ Punggol altered hands for $970,000 last month, the 6th flat in Punggol that has actually brought more than $900,000 given that 2019.

However, while million-dollar HDB resale offers currently regularly make headlines, these flats are in fully grown estates, and also experts state it may take some time prior to similar purchase surface areas in a non-mature estate.

High flooring, great sights, area, as well as the system’s renovations, are some aspects that commonly characterize a million-dollar HDB resale level, claimed ERA Real estate head of research as well as working as a consultant Nicholas Mak.

“Eventually, in many years to find, there will certainly be $1 million apartments in all parts of Singapore, merely due to inflation. However in the shorter term, a minimum of for the next one year, I do not assume we’ll see any million-dollar apartments in outlying areas,” added Mr Mak.

Till now, there has been just one-million-dollar deal in a non-mature estate.

November likewise saw 29 HDB resale apartments altering hands for at least $1 million, smashing the previous month-to-month document of 26 in August.

This brings the overall number to 223 in the first 11 months of this year, in what has already been a record year for million-dollar apartments. All remain in fully grown estates such as Bishan, Queenstown, and also Toa Payoh.
