Singapore Buyer’s Stamp Duty May Elevate the Prices of New Condo Development in 45 Amber Road

Due to the recent outline for a rate hike of the Buyer’s Stamp Duty, this may however affect developer’s prices for new condo developments in the future. The developer pays a significant premium to develop on residential sites as the need for newer developed condo property rises but; Are these premiums in need of a hike in higher price rate? Should developers pay more for new condo projects that are underway and coming in the near future?

However, it’s not much clarity as to why developers should pay more in premium property prices. For developers of newly developed condo buildings like the Amber 45 condo building located at 45 Amber Road, this means it will force a slight increase in site purchases for future condo building sites. As uncertain as it is, it may even elevate the buying price of new condo units.

Friction in transactions for Singapore condos

The buyer’s stamp duty will certainly cause some friction in transaction volumes throughout the Singapore real-estate market. With potential buyers proving that they are not really ready for the prospect of elevated realty prices, these price hikes are inevitable, especially, if developers have to pay more premium prices for their new developments. With friction inevitability, a clarifying glimpse of the market for Singapore condos may show why buyer are still sensitive to the initial price hike of private condo property.

With the new development condo property market in the earliest stages of recovery from its past 15 quarter decline, the optimism of potential buyers is still growing after the optimism decline for the real-estate market. Although Singapore real-estate prices are considered higher than average property prices, these prices are still within affordable range compared to other areas with luxury real-estate. As the market buyer’s stamp duty rises the sales momentum may take a few years or more before it strengthens the real estate market for new condo developments.

How to keep the friction down for Amber 45 Condo

It’s simple to give all the right methods and strategies for keeping friction down for Amber 45 condo. One method and/or strategy would be to leave the buyer’s duty stamp right where it is and not even think of a hike, until there is more clarity of why the rate hike should be made. The friction will most likely slow the market growth, even though it’s on an upturn. Potential buyers will move slower to purchase newly developed condo properties, due to the buyer’s stamp price.

Why will people be slower to purchase newly developed condo property? Simple to answer, they will have to pay higher prices for their condo units as their BSD rises and higher because developers BSD rises. To avoid this, keep the BSD at the same rate for maybe 3 more year’s time, when it will be easy to understand why it should be risen. Keeping potential buyer active now instead of slowing them down will help to get the real-estate market to grow faster before the 3 years expect market growth strength time is up.
