Private housing rents to fall 5% y-o-y in 2024: Savills

Research Study by Savills Singapore predicts that exclusive household prices will decrease 5% y-o-y in 2024. This comes as leasing action stalled further slowed in 4Q2023, the company accentuate in its latest residential renting industry record released in February.

URA’s island-wide leasing index for non-landed private property declined 1.8% q-o-q in 4Q2023, denoting the first quarterly decline from 4Q2020. The drop was steered by lower leas in all regions, with the Outside Central Region (OCR) registering the most extensive autumn q-o-q of 2.8%, adhered to by the Core Central Region (CCR) at 1.6% and the Rest of Central Region (RCR) at 1.2%.

Further finishes in 2024, which Savills estimates at 9,636 new units, will put further down stress on rents. Nonetheless, whilst rental rate corrections are on the stretch, landlords with leases that will most likely run out in the coming months are anticipated to raise leas for new deals, suggests Alan Cheong, executive director for research study and consultancy at Savills Singapore. “Landlords that have rent due will still obtain a rental uplift since the current rental fees are still higher than those authorized 2 years ago,” he points out.

Additionally, greater mortgage fees and property taxes may prompt some property managers to attempt to hand down these costs to their occupants. Nonetheless, Cheong alerts that property owners looking for rents higher than the present market rate may fall short to acquire a lessee, given the array of options now readily available on the market.

Generally, Savills forecasts exclusive household rentals are going to drop 5% y-o-y for the whole of 2024.

Savills associates the weaker leas to a variety of variables, including an arrival of brand-new home finalizations and harder business situations that have driven an increase in retrenchments. The headwinds resulted in reduced leasing transactions, with 19,027 arrangements registered across landed and non-landed estates island-wide in 4Q2023, low 18.8% q-o-q.
