"Unlocking a World of Opportunities: The LakeGarden Residences and Altura EC Showcase Varied Buyer Sentiments in Recent Launches"
In a weekend marked by diverse buyer responses, two new property launches, The LakeGarden Residences and Altura executive condominium (EC), illuminated the dynamic landscape of Singapore's real estate market. While The LakeGarden Residences achieved a modest 23% sales rate with an average price of $2,120 psf, Altura EC surpassed expectations by selling 61% of its units at a record-breaking average price of $1,433 psf. The market's mixed reception reflects buyers' cautious approach amidst increased supply and economic conditions, according to industry experts.
The LakeGarden Residences, nestled in the heart of Jurong, garnered keen interest with its offering of 306 units. Despite transacting only 71 units (23%), the project's strategic location and blend of unit types, including two- and three-bedroom configurations, have resonated well with families and upgraders in the western region. Stacey Ow Yeong, Head of Marketing at Wing Tai Property Management, attributed the project's popularity to its appeal among these segments.
On the other hand, Altura EC, a joint venture by Qingjian Realty and Santarli Realty, emerged as a standout success story. The development's impressive 61% sales rate, achieved at an average price of $1,433 psf, marked a new record for EC launches. Recognizing the project's potential, second-time applicants and HDB upgraders seized the opportunity, fully booking out their allotted units within a mere three hours.
The contrasting outcomes of these launches mirror the evolving sentiments of Singapore's property market. While some buyers are taking a deliberate approach in light of an increased supply of new units and current economic uncertainties, others are leveraging the scarcity of certain property types, such as ECs, to secure their preferred homes.
