“CanningHill Piers, was the best performing project in the month, moving 576 of its 696 total units (83%) at a median price of $2,887 per sq ft (psf),” said Tricia Song, Head of Research for Southeast Asia at CBRE.

Song noted that November’s new home sales were skewed towards the Rest of Central Region (RCR) mainly due to the robust performance of CanningHill Piers.
With this, the RCR accounted for 58.8% of last month’s sales, compared to 31.1% in October. The Outside Central Region (OCR) made up 29.7% of November’s sales, versus 38.1% previously, while the Core Central Region (CCR) accounted for 11.3%, down from 30.8% in October.
Huttons revealed that 39% of November’s transactions were priced above $2 million, 26.5% were between $1.5 million and $2 million and 34.4% were below $1.5 million.
Singaporeans made up 81.4% of the total transactions for November, while permanent residents and foreigners accounted for 12.9% and 5.6%, respectively, it said
Looking ahead, Song expects new home sales in December to remain buoyant, amid upcoming new launches, such as Perfect Ten in Bukit Timah Road.
Located near popular schools and offering views of Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, the freehold luxury project could set a record price for the Bukit Timah area, given the limited new supply of such properties.
Song noted that the deferment of vaccinated travel lanes to select countries to manage the risk of transmission of COVID-19 Omicron variant could deter both inbound and outbound travel, delaying the return of foreign buyers.
