  • HDB resale prices rose 1.8% in Q1 2024, a slight growth from the previous quarter.

What this means for sellers and buyers

For BuyersThe market is less competitive than it was, offering more time to consider options and potentially negotiate prices. However, don’t expect prices to drop dramatically – the market remains relatively stable.

3 main factors that influence HDB resale prices

1. Market demand and supply

The overall demand for HDB resale flats remains robust despite the growing BTO flat supply. Resale transactions increased by 8% in Q1 2024 compared to the previous quarter, reflecting heightened market activity​. This could be due to more homeowners looking for an immediate move-in or a larger unit.

2. Economic condition

The economic outlook and higher domestic mortgage rates have influenced buyer behavior. Although uncertainties from global geopolitical tensions persist, local economic stability supports sustained demand for resale flats​.

3. Government policies

Policies aimed at providing affordable housing and the introduction of cooling measures in previous years have moderated price hikes, contributing to a more stable market compared to the rapid increases seen in 2021 and 2022.
