THE REAL DEALS – Ins & Outs of Singapore Real Estate
Looking To 2013
Project launches next year. Excluding en-bloc’ed and Executive Condominium sites, around 21 already-sold sites are expected to be launched next year. We examine the remainder of the Government Land Sales (GLS) sites that have been sold and compare them to launches and secondary market transactions nearby. We will be focusing on the Farrer and Tanah Merah areas; Farrer sites were one of the highest-priced GLS sites, while Tanah Merah is seeing an explosive incoming supply. Interest in Farrer could be revived. Evidently, sites on Farrer have had slower take-up rates relative to mass-market projects. Under changes announced by SLA recently, the project completion period for residential en-bloc sites will now start from date of the collective sale order, instead of the date of the issue of a Qualifying Certificate. This may prompt developers to en-bloc larger sites, such as the en-bloc attempt for Tulip Gardens in 2007. Among the new sites, two sites that were hot favourites for small developers and funds and achieved the highest GLS prices, indicating there is still an innate price premium for the Farrer area. Explosive supply in Tanah Merah vicinity. Previously, supply in Tanah Merah was limited and coming solely from the secondary market. But it was clear that interest in future sites in the area was bound to spike when Optima@ Tanah Merah received an overwhelming take-up rate of over 98% within two months in mid-2009. YTD, GLS has released 1,863 units in the Tanah Merah vicinity. The recent top bid for New Upper Changi Road (Parcel A) was from Keppel Land at a land cost of SGD434.6m or SGD791.4psf, a 17.1% premium to the price at which Urban Vista’s land was sold in August. Keppel’s site was also sold at 48% above the price that Far East, Fraser Centrepoint and Seikui House jointly paid for their Eco site. A reserve site just beside the Eco project will be launched in February 2013 and comprise approximately 600 units. In addition, a commercial site has been slated between Urban Vista and Optima @ Tanah Merah, which will be a hot seller as it is directly next to the Tanah Merah MRT station. However, the commercial site’s date of availability is still indefinite. Figure 1: Year-to-date GLS sites sold yet to launch (ex-EC)

Farrer could be heating up. Two plots along Farrer were sold this year via the Reserve List. Situated along the bustling Farrer Road, the Farrer Road site attracted the most bidders – a total of 15 bids, with Far East beating Soon Hock Tuas Development by a narrow 3.3%. The site achieved the highest psf in GLS this year, an ASP of SGD1,108psf. The site area is 2,741.5sqm, and could house approximately 54 units. The Farrer Drive site, nestled between Sommerville Grandeur and Sommerville Park, received a total of six bids and won by SingLand. It was 5.6% cheaper than the Farrer Road site sold just two months later. Potential value? While take-up of CapitaLand’s D’Leedon’s was slow, Leedon Residences was recently launched, renewing optimism in the area. It has achieved a take-up rate of 25.7% since its launch in Oct 2012, and an ASP of SGD1,985psf. Current resale transactions of newer projects around Farrer, such as The Levelz and Waterfall Gardens, are achieving ASPs of SGD1,538psf YTD, approximately 29% cheaper than Leedon Residences and 4% cheaper than D’Leedon.

Current transactions. The launch of Eco was widely successful, with take-up rates reaching 53% in the first month of launch. With explosive supply coming onstream, resale prices in older projects have edged up. For example, the average selling price for Casa Merah YTD has crossed SGD1,000psf, while East Meadows is closing in on the SGD1,000psf mark. Optima @ Tanah Merah, sold at between SGD822-874psf in mid-2009, is now seeing sub-sale transactions taking place at an average of SGD1,224psf YTD. As of the end of last quarter, rental yields in the vicinity range between 3.9% and 4.2%. We estimate that new launches will be priced, between SGD1,300 and SGD1,500psf, next year. Assuming rental psf pm averages at SGD4, rental yields will range between 3.2% and 3.7%. However, we note that as these projects reach TOP in 2016-17, rental rates may be suppressed and rental yields will not be as ideal as they face competition for tenants from one another.
