Concerns of an upcoming recession are growing. Rising inflation and interest rates brings with it suspicion that the global economy is entering a period of stagflation. 

We explore how Singapore property market fare against the global markets and interest rates in this upcoming recession.

If you thought 2021 was a year of new launches, 2022 might surprise you. In 2021 alone, we saw 27 new launch projects, but this year, we might be seeing a number close to 40.

So if you are thinking of getting into this scene, you will probably want to get a good deal. And if the property purchase has an investment angle to it, every dollar counts, so the biggest discounts you can get will go a long way in driving up your capital gain.

Find out which New Launch have the lowest entry price by PSF. 

If you thought 2021 was a year of new launches, 2022 might surprise you. In 2021 alone, we saw 27 new launch projects, but this year, we might be seeing a number close to 40.

Find out which New Launch have the lowest entry price by quantum. 

URA uses “stratified hedonic regression methodology” to compute the Property Price Index (PPI).

Variations in the attributes of private properties transacted such as age and unit size are controlled for by using hedonic regression, and price movements are aggregated using 5-quarter fixed weights to derive the aggregate price change. The weights will be updated once every 3 years. 

Cooling Measures has been a crucial way for the government to keep the property market sustainable.

How does this intervention affect really affect the property prices in the market? In this dashboard, we explore how the different cooling measures directly affect the property market.

Inspired by mediaeval times, a moat is a defensive trench built around important towns and castles. The deep and wide structure of the moats are to prevent and deter a prolonged siege of the city, making the location more defensible for its inhabitants. 

Likewise, in PLB’s MOAT Analysis, we identified 10 factors that contribute to the defences of property value over time. The 10 factors that we identified are correlated to the price performance of properties and help to indicate the desirability of the property in the eyes of future buyers. 

Are these high prices sustainable? Are they temporary or here to stay? The worries of an exploding cost of living are not unfounded. Inflation is hitting Singapore’s housing market hard. 

While most households might not feel it just yet, in the next step of the property journey people will start to question why the price of new homes is so expensive. In this property market watchlist, we explore the top winners and top losers in various categories.

Frequently Asked Questions

Sell

Our fees range between 2-2.5% for Landed Properties and 2-3% for Condos and Apartments/HDB based on the intensity and marketing cost and resources of the marketing campaign (Home staging, Production, Social Media costs).

All marketing costs are part of the commission fees payable in the event of a successful sale, our clients only pay 1 fee.

We will design and recommend 3 campaign packages with different fee rates for you to select from based on the level of marketing suitable for your property, after the meet-up via a marketing plan.

You can then decide if you are happy to onboard with our team.

Most importantly, we are confident that with our marketing plan and campaign, in the event that we take up the project, we are able to help our clients net more at the end after our fees, compared to the traditional passive approach by most brokers where photos are just listed on property portals alone.

The Seller's Consultation session is free-of-charge and non-obligatory. We usually start off the process through a consult session.

Usually, the first consult session preferably will be at the property itself so that during the discussion, our consult team can have an assessment after seeing the property and plan for the marketing angle should we be appointed. After the first meetup session, our consult team will send over a Customized Listings Marketing Plan.

You can then decide whether to come onboard to engage PLB team after vetting through the proposed plan.

All listings handled by PropertyLimBrothers are on an exclusive arrangement and appointment basis for the past many years. The beautiful home tours that you see frequently on our PLB Youtube channels are exclusive homes that home sellers have appointed PLB to market and position for our clients. The reason why home sellers continue to trust PLB is that PLB takes the aggressive marketing and collective effort by our entire team for each property we represent as a heavy upfront investment and a business risk, effectively to find the right buyer for our clients, and to attract massive attention through our platforms to their listings. Thus creating a high possibility of result to find the right buyer.

PLB Team co-brokes with all external salespersons from every agency in Singapore if they have a buyer that is interested in any of our client’s listings. PLB values transparency, industry professionalism, and integrity when it comes to ensuring our client’s listings get the maximum level of exposure be it from direct buyers or buyers with salespersons representing them. In fact, a large number of PLB’s closed deals are performed with our co-broking partners.

The rationale for an exclusive appointment is that PLB commits to every project it undertakes for our clients. And the huge upfront investment of not just our expertise, team effort, backend media, and marketing production, home staging cost investment, and marketing cost investment into social media ads spend will mean that it will only be viable for us to operate and continue to function well through a mutually committed appointment by our clients.

The duration of the exclusive period depends on factors such as current occupancy status or the time frame required to find the right potential buyer for the unit.

In most cases, the exclusive period runs for 1+3 months — 1 month for the initial Marketing Preparation Phase, and 3 months for the full-on Marketing Campaign.

Every 1 to 1.5 months, the PLB team will do a review with our clients to assess the current response and feedback from potential buyers.

We are happy to mutually extend the exclusive period for another 3 months at no extra cost to our sellers, to continue marketing their property at its fullest potential should both PLB and our clients decide to continue the extension of the exclusive period.

We usually require a 3 to 4-week buffer for the entire Marketing Preparation Phase. This includes paint touch-ups, decluttering, home-staging, virtual mapping, photography, PLB Signature Home Tour media shoot, post-production of the video, and other forms of coordination to launch the property.

1st phase of marketing will be ready in 3 working days’ time as we launch all photos on property portals first while we phase the rest of the marketing campaign launch by phases.

It usually takes about 14 to 21 working days from the shoot date, to when the Video & Social media ads go "LIVE".

Upon our site visit to your home, you will receive a Staging Proposal from our Staging consultants.

All staging costs are part of our PLB Marketing package. Only in unique situations whereby sellers need bespoke arrangements, do we have bespoke arrangements for cost bearing with our clients.

We have proven track records that 8 out of 10 properties that we represent for our property sellers are sold within 3 months.

We advise our clients not to launch any properties in the marketplace hastily, all properties are unique and need a proper positioning and crafting of the marketing and content angle before launch.

Proper preparation work is necessary to create content that can target buyer audiences, through amassing hundreds of thousands of viewership online. Such preparation work includes: Home Staging, Decluttering, and the creation of compelling Home Tour content using PLB’s Signature Video Home Tour.

Purely depending on one form of marketing alone will result in limitations, such as reduced interest and traction. We strive to be unique, instead of sticking to the standard use of photos on portals. We would be just like many of the other listings in the market with no real “active” social media reach to potential buyers, and not getting quality viewers. This will undoubtedly save both time and efforts for both parties.

Various marketing campaign strategies and options can be explored when we visit your property. It will help us understand what we are working with and how we can value-add to the entire Marketing Campaign to achieve the best target price possible.

As long as a type of marketing can work for our clients, we adopt them through an omnipresent marketing approach.
