Private residential property prices in Singapore fell in Q1 2020, after rising for three straight quarters, due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) impact on the economy.

Final statistics from the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Singapore (URA) on Friday, 24 April, showed that private residential property prices fell by 1.0% quarter-on-quarter (QOQ) in Q1 2020, slightly better than the flash estimates of a 1.2% decline. This also compares to a 0.5% gain in the previous quarter and a 2.7% gain in full year 2019.

Prices of private residential properties have declined by 1.0% q-o-q, compared to the 0.5% increase in the previous quarter. This marks its first reversal after three consecutive quarters of growth. The decline in the overall price index was largely driven by both landed and non-landed properties which exhibited the same magnitude of decline.
