SINGAPORE PRESS-Investment sales of property remain sluggish in Q1 - Business Times
Investment sales of Singapore property, which cover big-ticket deals of at least S$10 million ($7.9 million), have continued to languish in the first quarter, according to separate figures from CBRE and Savills.
Deals originating from the public sector accounted for the lion's share of transactions - the first time this has happened in nearly three years.
This was on the back of state land sales. Sale of residential sites under the Government Land Sales (GLS) programme made up 49 percent of the S$3.8 billion total investment sales volume in this quarter (up to March 21), said CBRE. (link.reuters.com/tuj87v)
