Singapore HDB Resale COV near 5 year low - Feb 2014

According to figure released by the Singapore Real Estate Exchange (SRX), Jan 2014 COV figure was the lowest since June 2009 during the global financial crisis. Despite the decline, HDB Resale prices inched up by 0.3% in the month which reverses the general decline seen in the market since Q2 2013.

Private property developers including CDL urged the government to re-look on the cooling measurements implemented several rounds since few years back and so the whole ecosystem could still be running in healthy level.

In my own opinion, property market is about 6 - 9 months lagging behind stock market. The Quantitative Easing kicked off this year would increase the interest rate eventually and dampen the demand of riskier product such as stocks & real estates.

However, it does mean that there are more opportunities out there in the market compared to last 2 years. Try to be more selective in investment and you may get a bigger return in later years.
