Where are buyers searching

online property searches

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

The most searched private condominium project was The Interlace, which overtakes Sky Habitat which had topped the list previously for two weeks straight. The 99-year leasehold condo at Depot Road in District 3 is already completed. A Credit Suisse report in May noted that seven apartments were sold at the project in Q1 2015, but there are still 162 unsold units.

The 480-unit Westwood Residences at Jurong West in District 22 remains as the top searched executive condominium (EC) for sale. The project’s popularity could be attributed to its bicycle theme, which differentiates it from other condos and ECs.

The Jurong area has also been attracting a lot of attention with recent news of positive developments such as the future Singapore-Kuala Lumpur high speed rail terminus being built on the current site of Jurong Country Club.

Meanwhile, Sengkang (D19) is still the most searched HDB estate for sale and is now considered a self-contained estate. Residents are within walking distance to several shopping malls and neighbourhood schools.

The full list of the Top 5 searched condos, ECs and HDB estates for sale on PropertyGuru.com.sg appears below.
