Have you sold or bought a Housing and Development Board (HDB) resale flat in the first quarter this year?
What is the Flash Estimate of the HDB Resale Property Price Index in Q1?
Resale Property Price Index (RPI) tracks the overall price movement of the public residential market. It is based on a quarterly average resale price by date of registration.
- RPI was 131.5 which is the same level as in the last quarter of 2019.
- Prices were stable after two consecutive quarters of the increase last year.
The HDB will release the final figures, with more detailed public housing data on 24 April.
Ohmyhome’s HDB Sales Manager Clarence Liang said, “In the first quarter of 2020, we do not see an enormous impact of COVID-19 to the HDB resale flat prices. The HDB resale RPI is less likely to be subjected to rapid shifts, unlike private investment properties. Stable HDB resale price could be an indication that buyers are being a little more conservative.”
