The recent report card released by JTC today points towards an industrial property market that is steadily improving in health. The sale of the 5-storey industrial building comes at a time when the industrial property market is steadily improving in health.
This improvement in the industrial property market comes at the back of a strong pick-up in leasing transactions to a record high. This has likely been underpinned by the more upbeat business sentiment alongside the positive economic and manufacturing data, which has emboldened more tenants and industrialists to review their real estate options.
Leading real estate observers have said that they were optimistic that the industrial property market will likely bottom within the next 12 months, barring any unforeseen external shocks. They took into account the tapering pipeline supply that will allow demand to play catch up amid the positive economic outlook, barring any unforeseen external shocks.
A recent research said that tapering of supply in the industrial property market will support the market in 2019. It pointed out that industrial rents stagnated during 2018 due to the supply overhang from the preceding years. And predicted that in 2019, the tapering of supply will lend support to the market and lead to marginal increases in rents despite the slowdown in manufacturing growth. The temporary trade truce between US and China is also expected to boost market confidence.
Mr Paul Ho, Chief Mortgage Consultant at iCompareLoan, said that despite the property curbs introduced by the Government last year, Singapore is still an attractive residential market for investors.
Although the property market exuberance has been curbed to some extent with the property cooling measures introduced last year, Singapore as a property market investment destination still remains among the top – shoulder to shoulder with other cities in the world like London, New York, Shanghai and Sydney.
“We have to be mindful that there is a lot of excess capital fluidity here and at 1.9 – 2 percent, Singapore has one of the lowest interest rates for home loans in the region. The industrial property market price recovery is observed to be broadening,” he noted.
