Singapore is one of the most well-housed countries in the world and enjoys a home-ownership quotient of 87 per cent. The residential property market is the most important sector of the island’s private property market, and the most actively reported by the local media.
Residential property is frequently a talking point, an emotive issue, and an economic barometer. The travails of the residential property market are observed in defined cycles of ups and downs, reflective of a typical business cycle. Mr Philip Ng will share his views, as a property developer, about the nature of the private residential property market in Singapore with a general characterisation of the cycles experienced by the market in the last five decades.
