Get Into Core Central Region Before Big Price Adjustments

What two factors should clients consider when seeking a property to purchase, in order to decide if it is a worthwhile investment?

Safe Entry Price & Price Gap

Let’s make use of Cairnhill 16 as a case study to determine these two key factors.

It’s already quite clear that Cairnhill 16, as a freehold property, offers a relatively secure entry point at $2,6XX psf – an attractive proposition compared to 99-year leaseholds in the Outside Central Region (OCR) and Rest of Central Region (RCR), starting from $2,1XX and $2,4XX psf respectively, and with Core Central Region (CCR) properties averaging $2,8XX.

Determining A Safe Entry Price

It’s clear from Figure 1 that the entry price for Cairnhill 16 is below the average for new sales in the CCR – the price gap between RCR and CCR properties has narrowed significantly. This makes Cairnhill 16 a smart choice for entry, as the rising prices of homes in the OCR and RCR have shrunk the difference between them.

Price Gap Between RCR & CCR Narrowing

Imagine being able to buy a luxurious freehold CCR project for the same price as the average RCR home!

From Figure 2, we can see that the average price of a new home sale in the RCR and CCR has been narrowing throughout the years. In particular, 4Q 2022 saw the average price of a new home sale in RCR reach $2,659 – approximately the entry price of Cairnhill 16 at $2,6XX psf. What an incredible opportunity!

Finally, let us analyze Figure 3, demonstrating the cost of freehold new launches in the CCR; the price range runs from $2,777 to $3,161, doesn’t it make Cairnhill 16 a wise choice for investment?

This year is set to be a exciting time for Core Central Region, with its price offering an attractive alternative investment opportunity to Rest of Central Region.
