- First owners of executive condominiums (ECs) in Singapore make higher average gross profits, with an average gain of S$322,220, compared to second owners with an average gain of S$261,948, according to Huttons Asia.
- Upon reaching the minimum occupation period (MOP) of five years, first owners consistently achieve average gross gains of over S$300,000 every year, with profits exceeding S$500,000 as the project approaches the 10-year mark.
- Second owners typically wait for at least four years to see an average gross profit of nearly S$300,000.
- The study analyzed 5,033 EC transactions for projects launched from 2010 and found that longer holding periods for first owners resulted in higher average gross profits.
- Average gross profits were observed to be highest when the EC is 10 years or older, possibly due to increased eligibility for foreign buyers.
- First owners tend to sell within one to two years after fulfilling the MOP, with average gross gains of S$317,731 to S$327,982.
- Buyers of resale EC units generally have smaller average gross gains compared to first owners.
- Huttons Asia suggests that new EC units are a superior option due to measured supply and the well-supported prices.
- Average prices of resale EC units rose 102.2% from 2008, while average prices of new EC units climbed 88.5% over the same period.
