According to the recent flash estimate released by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA), private residential property prices in Singapore have risen yet again in the third quarter of 2022. This marks the tenth consecutive quarter of growth, with prices growing by 3.4% on a quarter-on-quarter basis. The rise was led by a 7% jump in suburban condos, attributed to the success of three new launches. These findings indicate that the private residential market is still thriving, despite pandemic-related disruptions. Additionally, according to experts, this trend is likely to continue into 2023, with rents also expected to rise. The URA’s flash estimate follows a similar upward trajectory reported in the previous quarter, with price growth exceeding expectations. These estimates suggest that the housing market in Singapore remains resilient and a worthwhile investment for buyers.

Among the different regions, prices of non-landed private residential properties in the CCR saw a moderate increase of 2.3%, while RCR prices rose by 2.5%. However, the OCR saw the highest increase in prices at 7.0%.
