Singapore home sales show signs of recovery, rise to 4-month high

Bloomberg

Singapore home sales jumped to the highest in four months in March amid signs the property market is recovering.
Developers sold 716 units, the Urban Redevelopment Authority said. That’s more than a revised 384 units in February and the highest since
November. Still, sales are running at a slower pace than early last year.
The city-state’s housing market is showing signs of recovering from a four-year slump even as officials watch cautiously after previous bouts of overheating. Property prices climbed 3.1 percent in the first quarter, the biggest gain in almost eight years. “This is still a low number,” said Christine Li, a director of research at Cushman & Wakefield Inc. “Many developers are not pushing as many apartments in the market as they could because they are hoping for higher prices,” she said, forecasting bigger gains in coming months.
