property searches for sale

As part of plans to keep our readers better informed of what’s “hot” in the housing market, we provide an update of the most searched properties for sale from the PropertyGuru website this past week, as well as popular buying locations in Singapore.

For the second week in a row, the recently completed Sky Habitat development was the most searched private condo among prospective buyers. Located in Bishan (D20), Sky Habitat is a 99-year leasehold project within proximity to Bishan MRT station. Comprising 509 units, the project achieved TOP on 27 April.

Westwood Residences remains the most popular executive condominium (EC) for sale. The 480-unit project in Jurong West (D22) stands out for its cyclist-friendly features, which includes a mini velodrome and a bicycle garage that can accommodate 500 bicycles. The EC’s showflat opened for e-applications on 15 May while booking of units will start on 30 May.

Meanwhile, Sengkang (D19) has reclaimed top spot as the most searched HDB estate for sale after being overtaken by Jurong West in the previous week. A slight increase in the number of listings for Sengkang due to more flats being made available on the resale market may have helped drive more searches.
