New private home sales in January down 28.1% from December; 17.8% lower on year: URA

DEVELOPERS in Singapore sold 433 private homes last month, down 28.1 per cent from the 602 units they moved in December 2018, and also 17.8 per cent lower than the 527 units they moved in January 2018.

The figures were released by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) on Friday, based on its survey of licensed housing developers.

The figures exclude executive condominium (EC) units, which are a public-private housing hybrid.

Including ECs, developers found buyers for 434 units last month, again lower than the 605 units in December 2018, and the 627 units they moved in January 2018.
