Keppel Land annual home sales down 4% to 5,480 units

Keppel Land’s total homes sales slid by four percent to 5,480 units last year on an annual basis due to cooling measures in China and the timing of development launches in Vietnam, reported the Singapore Business Review.

According to DBS Equity Research, Keppel Corporation’s real estate arm found buyers for 270 dwellings in Indonesia, 380 in Singapore, 1,110 in Vietnam and 3,725 residential properties in China.

Despite the dip in home sales, its earnings grew by 10 percent year-on-year to $ 685 million in 2017. The company is also expected to unveil 16,780 houses until 2020, or about 5,593 units per annum, out of its 63,000-unit overall pipeline.

Furthermore, DBS Equity Research said that 70 percent of Keppel Land’s landbank for residential projects were bought at a relatively lower cost over seven years ago. Hence, the firm’s net asset value is anticipated to improve after these housing developments are completed.

New Futura condo sells 18 units at average price of $3,200 psf

18 of the 25 units released for sale were sold at an average price of $ 3,200 psf.

New Futura, City Development Limited’s (CDL) luxury condominium project at Leonie Hill Road, received positive response from buyers, with 18 units sold at an average price of $ 3,200 psf during its first day of launch on 18 January (Thursday).

CDL revealed that only 25 units were released during the private viewing, while the units sold comprised two, three and four-bedroom units.

It noted that a third of the buyers were Singaporeans, while two-thirds were Singapore permanent residents and foreigners.

Just a 10-minute walk to Orchard Road, the freehold development is nestled on an 87,000 sq ft site, featuring 124 residential units as well as 253 carpark lots, including 30 supercar lots.

CDL acquired the site in a collective sale for $ 287.3 million in 2006, which works out to a land rate of $ 1,179 psf.

“Given the scarcity of brand new developments in the area, we are confident that New Futura will continue to attract savvy buyers looking for luxury living in the heart of town with good investment potential,” said a CDL spokesperson.
