Hi there, thanks for writing to us on AskGuru.

According to URA's data, prices of private residential properties increased by 3.3% in the first quarter of 2021, compared with the 2.1% increase in the previous quarter.

Moving forward, the Private Property Index (PPI) is expected to rise ahead.

While this may favour sellers, it also depends on your financial situation, investment objective and other circumstances.

If you wish to buy another private property, chances are, you will also buy at a high.

We advise you to engage an experienced agent who will be able to do a detailed financial calculation for you.

Hope this answers your question.

Best Regards,

We would need to understand more about your goal for disposing the unit and your future plans, (e.g. whether is it to cash out from this unit to right size or to upgrade to a bigger unit etc), in order to provide you with the best possible advice on whether it is a wise choice to sell your unit now or to look for other alternatives to reach your goals and future plans.

Please feel free to contact my partner and myself at 9002 0342 and we will be very glad to assist you further!

Dear Sir/Mdm,

It will be good to look at the price trend of your condo and the figures before you can make an informed decision as to whether to sell the unit. It will be good if I can also understand your intentions and plans after selling the unit so that I can advise and assist you further.

I was featured recently on Council for Estate Agencies (CEA) Newsletter:

Testimonial from Satisfied Clients
“I would like to recommend Nick Tan from SRI. Before we engaged Nick, we were working with another agent from a very popular property agency in February 2017. We decided to terminate the contract after 5 weeks of zero viewings and no paper advertisements. Basically he was just waiting for phone calls. We engaged Nick on 20th April and by 10th of May, our unit was sold off. Why Nick? 1. He has good marketing strategies 2. He always kept us posted on what he did (communications!) 3. He made sure we understand the current market situation but he will consistently reassure us that the unit can be sold off 4. He is not greedy and trusting 5. He walks the talk”
Peter & Wendy (Property Seller)

I write to commend Nick Tan (R040814C). When my husband and I first met Nick, we were impressed by his drive, commitment, business acumen and strategical thinking, and decided to engage him. We were not disappointed. Nick sourced for prospective quality buyers in a targeted methodical fashion and was effective in connecting us with serious buyers, notwithstanding the fact that the search primarily took place over Dec – Feb (a traditional lull period). Throughout the transaction, he also gave us helpful advice in various aspects; the advice reflected his personal experience and expertise and was not simply regurgitated from public sources without any value-add. Further, Nick went beyond the call of duty of a competent professional. He had a sense of humanity in the way he interacted with myself and the other parties to the transaction such as my parents. As an example, my newborn daughter was warded into A&E on the completion date of the transaction; the care and concern that Nick showed went beyond the scope of work of an estate agent. I commend Nick for his capabilities and character, and would certainly wish to engage him for future property transactions.

“We are very grateful to Nick for his extensive marketing efforts. With his comprehensive marketing plan, he helped us to achieve a record selling price within 2 weeks of listing our property for sale! We highly recommend his service to anyone who is keen to sell their properties.”
Mr & Mrs Wong (Property Seller)

“Nick has conducted himself ethically and professionally when handling the sales of our property. Thanks to his patience and perseverance, we managed to secure a sales price beyond our expectations. We are very happy and satisfied with his services and will definitely recommend him to our friends and family in the future.”
Mr & Mrs Tan (Seller of Inter-Terrace House)

“Nick provides a delightful customer experience from day one when I engage him as my agent to look for a flat of my choice to the completion of the deal. He is competent, resourceful and has a pleasant manner to work with. He is the Agent of my choice in dealing with properties and I would highly recommend him to others who would appreciate an agent that takes care and can give the customer a peaceful mind.”
Susana (Buyer)
“Nick is very pro-active in helping us to resolve whatever questions and problems that we encountered. All the issues are settled even before us having to request or ask for a second time. He was very frank and transparent with all the details, limitations and advantages that we wouldn’t have

1) There are different reasons for selling.
2) Price is definitely one of the major factors.
3) Resale market has picked up since 2016, even though there was a cooling measure implemented in 2018 that did not stop it from rising.
4) Some property has to be let go due to its lease, condition, rental yield, etc.
5) What was your main objective of selling, was it for upgrading, capital appreciation, downgrade, etc?
6) Your age could also be one of the factors to determine this is a good time to release.

Due to there are too many questions on hand, I wouldn't be able to tell whether it is a good time for you to sell your condo unit now.

Hope the above answer to your main concerns, but if there are more query, please feel free to contact me at 90110636, or email: ling.ck7@gmail.com if more information is needed.
I'll be glad to assist.
