Open Listing vs Exclusive Right to Sell

An OPEN listing is when the seller of the property has to pay a commission to the broker who made the sale, but the seller reserves the right to sell the property on his own without paying a commission. Open listings may be given to any number of brokers on the same property.

An EXCLUSIVE right to sell agreement is a listing agreement whereby the seller is obliged to pay a commission to the broker with exclusive right to sell a property during a stated period, even if the owner makes the sale himself.

Singapore Property Market 2019: 5 Things You Need To Know

With the New Year now upon us, many are wondering what lies ahead in the coming months.

In this article, we’ve rounded up 5 things you need to know about how the Singapore property market could pan out in 2019.


1) There’ll be a spike of new launches in the residential market


In the pipeline for launch in 2019 are about 60 new residential projects

In the pipeline for launch in 2019 are about 60 projects. Several developers have already lined up previews in January, ahead of Chinese New Year on February 5.

They include Roxy-Pacific Holdings’ Fyve Derbyshire and RV Altitude; TEE Land’s 35 Gilstead (the former Casa Contendere); One Meyer by Sustained Land; and Jervois Prive (former Jervois Green) by a consortium led by the owner of Spring Court restaurant. Meanwhile, bigger projects such as SingHaiyi’s The Gazania (former Sun Rosier) and The Lilium (former How Sun Park) are slated to launch after Chinese New Year.

2) Mortgagee sales are expected to rise



Mortgagee sales are expected to rise in 2H2019, as more owners are choosing to list their properties on the auction market. Including re-listings, the number of properties put up for sale at auctions totalled 1,087 last year (as at Nov 30, 2018). This was 35.4% higher than the figure in 2017. According to Colliers International, the figure is the highest recorded since 2008.


In the biggest transacted residential mortgagee sale for 2018, a semi-detached house at 25 Pasir Ris Way in the eastern corner of Singapore was sold for $5 million ($505 psf) in May. With a land area of 3,999 sq ft and a built-up area of 9,892 sq ft, the unit attracted 15 bids. The mortgagee sale was brokered by ET&Co.


3) Larger plots and higher prices for Good Class Bungalows (GCBs)


GCBs are restricted properties and coveted by foreigners. Some of the recent purchases were by newly minted Singapore citizens from China, Taiwan and India


SIR’s Leong attributes the strength of the GCB market to the profile of the owners and buyers: ultra-high-net-worth (UHNW) individuals with strong financial backing who are also long-term property investors.



4) Increased demand for shophouses





The property cooling measures in July 2018 have influenced the super-rich to switch from luxury homes to an alternative asset class: conservation shophouses


5) Limited new supply and rising rents brighten outlook for office sector


Grade-A office rents in the CBD have been rising at 2% to 3% a quarter over the last 12 months

The office sector was the one bright spot in the real estate market in 2018. Average gross monthly rents for Grade-A office space in the CBD rose 10.8% in 2018, according to preliminary estimates by JLL Research — from $9.17 psf in 4Q2017 to $10.16 psf in 4Q2018.

Property Agent Commissions – What Singaporeans Might Not Know

For many Singaporeans, buying a home is a key life event, and probably the biggest purchase they will make in their lives. For some Singaporeans, property agents play a key role in facilitating the buying, selling, and rental process.

5 things you probably didn’t know about your property agent

Buying a home in Singapore is a tedious process that requires careful research and consideration. While Singaporeans are becoming increasingly tech savvy when it comes to buying and selling properties, it still pays to seek professional advice. This is especially if you’re buying property for the first time and seeing that a home could probably be the biggest purchase of your lifetime!

Your Property Agent Says: When is the best time to sell your home?

Whether you are relocating, making space for a growing family, planning to move closer to your kid’s school, downsizing, figuring out when’s the best time to sell your current home can be pretty daunting, especially for first-time sellers.

Five Important Things to Ask Before Choosing Your Real Estate Agent

Once you’ve decided to buy a property, a key step is finding a real estate agent who can help you achieve your goal. Not enlisting an agent is, in fact, one of the biggest mistakes a homebuyer can make. For that matter, the same is true if you want to offload your property.

Qualities Of A Good Property Agent

Below are three attributes that every property agent in Singapore should possess.
Engaging The Right Agent To Sell Your
The generation of today has grown up with and is accustomed to buying and selling many things online on their own, and it is easy to fall into the trap of assuming that buying and selling a property ourselves is as easy as buying an e-scooter off the internet.
0?e=2125267200&v=beta&t=ilEIy0kuC0Er83fMjKhZIKsb_7C0ajCKuLSfcqXsnPc

Is it truly that simple and will there be any relevance in the role of a real estate agent today and in the future?

How do I find the right property agent to sell my home?

Selling your home is, without a doubt, one of the most emotional, expensive and time-consuming events of your life – that’s why so many sellers opt to hire a property agent to carry the burden instead.

Who is the “Tenant’s Agent” & should you engage one?

In one of our previous blog posts, we stated that there’re two types of property agents in the rental market: landlord’s agent and tenant’s agent. In general, renters are familiar with landlords’ agents as most rentals will inevitably engage one in the process. The concept of a tenant’s agents, however, is more nebulous as they require active engagement on the part of the tenant.

When should you appoint an exclusive property agent?

Make no mistake, going exclusive with a particular property agent can be a gamble. If you get a good agent, you’ll get a quick sale at a good price. Get a bad agent, and several months down the road you’ll feel like you’re stuck in a bad marriage you can’t get yourself out of. Here are several factors to consider before taking the relationship to a whole new exclusive level:

Why a good managing agent is important to your property value (and how to spot one)

A condominium development is like the human body after a certain age. Every little problem, if ignored, will somehow snowball into a major disaster. Tiny things, such as the lift lights not working, or a leaky spot in the carpark, all compound over time. After 10 years, the combination of problems will result in malfunctioning elevators, underground flooding, and a building that looks like ground zero of a zombie apocalypse. The only thing standing in its way is a good managing agent:

The role of a real estate agent: What they should and shouldn’t be doing
Engaging a real estate agent for the first time, and not sure what comes under their jurisdiction? Read on to find out more about what your property agent should, and shouldn’t be doing!
First things first: before engaging a real estate agent, make sure you verify he/she is indeed registered with the Council for Estate Agencies (CEA). Simply access CEA’s website, and conduct a search using your agent’s name or real estate number. If you want to go a step further in verifying your agent’s identity, ask for his or her real estate agency card, which contains a CEA-issued registration number.

Singapore property agents commission: what should I pay?

Wondering what you should be paying the property agent? We have been asked about how Singapore property agents commission work many times and it is astounding how confusing it can get about the practice around dealing with agents and commissions. Here’s a guide for you!

5 things you should know before thinking about skipping the property agent

It’s been frequently quoted that the number of Do-It-Yourself (DIY) HDB transactions is rising – in 2013, 11 percent of buyers and sellers didn’t use a property agent and as of 2013, more than a quarter went DIY.
What does that number really mean though? We investigated and found that it is actually a somewhat misleading number – HDB considers each property changing hands to really be 2 transactions – 1 for the buyer and 1 for the seller.
What 99.co research has found is that – the number of BUYERS who did not use an agent has decreased to about 50%, while the number of SELLERS who did not use an agent remains at over 95%. (and thus overall, about 25% of transactions, i.e. 50% of buyers, are DIY transactions)
This is because of 3 main factors
0?e=2125267200&v=beta&t=dF9WuLxK__XdGdx0vmqJE167F0mF4dtF9AMq8Ednltc

Transparent property agent transactions and ratings will soon become the norm in Singapore

Choosing a new restaurant to try (or even a hotel for your upcoming trip) is pretty simple. Just head over to Tripadvisor, and you’ll get access to thousands of ratings and reviews at your fingertips.
Choosing a property agent to work with, on the other hand, is not quite as straightforward. Obviously, you’ll ask your friends and families for recommendations. You might also do a Google search, and chance upon blog articles wherein people talk about their experiences with their own agents… but you’ll be hard-pressed to find a handy platform which collects and aggregates information and reviews.

7 easy tricks you can use to spot a reliable property agent

You know why picking a reliable property agent is hard? It’s because most of us only buy a house once or twice in our lives. It’s not as if we get to work 20 different agents, so we can spot the fly-by-night agents from the long-time professionals. Fortunately, there are some tell-tale signs to look for:

Mythbusting: 4 things to know about property agents

Ask any homeowner and they’ll say that the properties they own are probably the most expensive assets in their portfolio. Simple logic would follow that since they already have, or will be, spending a significant amount of money (or in other words, a large fortune equivalent to raising a child till university), you would also expect them to possess a certain level of knowledge about property buying and/or selling. However, most will opt for the easy way out and entrust their property agents to do all the paperwork, leaving them none the wiser.

The benefits of engaging a property agent

Blame it on the bad economy, or simply on our kiasu and penny-pinching nature, but in the recent years, there’s been an increasing number of Singaporeans who are opting to sell their property without engaging a property agent. In this article, we take a look at some of the benefits of engaging property agents that you might just miss out on if you go down the DIY route.

Why illegal real estate agents are still a problem

The Council for Estate Agencies (CEA) has done an admirable job of cleaning up the real estate business. It’s been awhile since illegal real estate agents made the news, with the most recent case being 56 year old Shakir Khan. Although the number of these cases are dwindling, illegal real estate agents still exist. This is why:

3. ACHIEVABLE MONEY GOALS
Set realistic shorter-term goals that are achievable so that you are encouraged to pursue your vision in incremental steps.

Start with an end in mind. What do financial independence and retirement mean to you? Create a money road map of your current and future cash flows. It details how you want to build, preserve and distribute them to help you achieve what you want in life.

4. FINANCIAL CALENDAR
Create a spreadsheet with milestones of hitting your short-term and long-term financial goals, and track them.
5. PRIORITISE YOUR GOALS
Wants are unlimited but resources are limited. Which financial goals are most important to you now?
6. CALCULATE FUTURE COST
Ask yourself if you would rather spend the money now or save it for the future by compounding and growing it.
7. SET UP A BUDGET
This is a tool to help you visualise where your money is being spent and identify where expenses can be reduced.
8. BUDGET WITH THE FAMILY
Share the responsibility with family members. When everyone cuts back a little, it can make a big difference.
9. CASH ENVELOPE
Take out cash to last you one week of discretionary expenses and stick to it.
10. KEEP YOUR RECEIPTS
You will be less likely to over-spend.
Saving
1. SET MONTHLY AND ANNUAL SAVINGS GOALS
If saving is difficult for you, start with 20 per cent and aim for a higher percentage when your income grows.
2. SAVE YOUR BONUSES
Try to save most of your bonuses.
3. PAY YOURSELF FIRST
Set up a Giro arrangement so that part of your monthly pay goes to a separate savings account. Better still, do not link an ATM card to this account to prevent quick access.
4. PAY OFF HIGH-INTEREST DEBT FIRST
This is to avoid these high interest debts from ballooning out of control.
5. TRACKING YOUR SPEND
Use an app to track your expenditure on a daily and monthly basis.
6. USE A DEBIT CARD
People who chalk up huge debts usually blame it on their easy attitude with credit cards which charge customers up to 24 per cent a year in interest for late payments.
7. AVOID MAKING IMPULSE PURCHASES
Compare prices and feedback in chat forums before you make that purchase.
Consider how many times you will use the item. Have a mental picture of what you already own. Will it add value to your life?
8. BUYING ON INTEREST-FREE INSTALMENTS
This is a marketing tactic. Do you really need to buy the item?
9. EAT AT HOME MORE
It is cheaper to eat at home (and healthier too) than to eat out.
10. DO YOU HAVE TOO MUCH IN SAVINGS?
Consider investing to grow your savings, once you have set aside about six months of emergency cash.
Insurance
1. HOSPITALISATION & SURGICAL INSURANCE
Unless your company offers portable health insurance, you owe it to yourself to be insured while you are still healthy and insurable.
2. CPF LIFE
The CPF Life is a national annuity scheme offering income payouts for life upon retirement. Save for and beyond it to secure your retirement.
3. BUNDLED INSURANCE PRODUCTS
Over the years, insurance has become bundled with investments, which introduces another layer of cost.
In some cases, it may be better to buy term (pure protection) and invest the rest.
4. MORTGAGE INSURANCE
If you have an outstanding home loan, it is prudent to buy mortgage insurance to cover you and your family should you meet any unfortunate situation.
5. UNDERSTAND INSURANCE JARGON
Do you know what these terms mean: Death benefit, guaranteed and non-guaranteed benefits, surrender value, rate of returns, premium holiday and exclusions?
6. AT POINT OF SALE
Expect to be given certain documents including a “Your guide to life insurance” booklet, a product summary and a benefit illustration, even if you buy on a “no advice” basis.
7. COMPARE INSURANCE PRODUCTS
Use comparison portals, such as compareFirst and DIYinsurance to check out differences in features and premiums.
8. CHOOSE THE RIGHT INSURANCE
Have a clear idea of what you need. The cheapest product is not always the best for you. Understand the benefits, terms and conditions.
9. HOW MUCH LIFE INSURANCE DO I NEED?
The conventional rule of thumb is to multiply your annual income by 20 years. But there are no fixed rules. Consider how much your beneficiaries would need if you are not around.
10. COMMITMENT
Buying insurance is a long-term commitment. Early terminations may result in you losing part of the premiums paid.
Investments
1. WORST-CASE SCENARIO
Don’t let greed get in the way. It’s natural to picture the best-case scenario. Discipline yourself to ask what is the worst-case scenario and if you can take the risk of it happening.
2. MINIMISE INVESTMENT COSTS
Investment-related costs like sales charges, expense ratios, fund management fees, trailer fees, hurdle rates and performance fees will eat into your returns. This is why some investors prefer low-cost index funds, which are passively managed as they track indices.
3. RISK VERSUS RETURNS
Consider how much risk you feel comfortable with. Also, do you have the capacity and do you need to take the risk?
4. RULE OF 72
To find the number of years required to double your money at a given interest rate, you divide 72 by the expected return. For example, if you want to know how long it will take to double your money at 8 per cent interest, divide 72 by eight and you get nine years.
5. POWER OF COMPOUNDING
When you understand the power of compound interest, long-term investing makes a lot of sense because the amounts will add up rapidly over the years.
6. DOLLAR COST AVERAGING
Invest equal amounts regularly over a long period so as to buy more units or shares when prices are low and fewer when prices are high. The advantage is that you lower your cost of investment and reduce the risk of investing at a peak.
7. SUPPLEMENTARY RETIREMENT SCHEME
A national voluntary scheme which enables you to save on taxes while you build your nest egg.
8. DON’T TRY TO TIME THE MARKET
It’s difficult to time the market which moves in cycles. Those who time the market typically miss the run up.
9. TIME HORIZON
As a general rule of thumb, subtract your age from 100. That is the percentage you can invest in stocks and the rest in more conservative investments like bonds.
10. REBALANCE YOUR PORTFOLIO
Fine-tune your portfolio periodically by buying and selling portions of it so as to bring it back in line with your risk profile and asset allocation.
Money is a means to an end
1. HEALTH
Health is wealth. Reduce your healthcare cost by eating healthily and exercising regularly.
2. EXPERIENCE
Spend on experiences, not things.
3. FRIENDS
Cultivate friends with similar money attitudes and healthy lifestyles.
4. GIVE AND BE INVOLVED
It is better to give than to receive. Besides cash donations, experience the joy of giving your time and effort.
5. MONEY IS NOT AN END IN ITSELF
Accumulating money without a purpose loses its meaning in the long run.
6. LASTING POWER OF ATTORNEY
Decide who are your donee(s) in case you become mentally incapacitated.
7. LEAVE A WILL
Ensure a speedier and hassle-free distribution of your estate upon your demise.
8. ADVANCE MEDICAL DIRECTIVE
To reduce the trauma of family members having to make a difficult decision, inform your doctor in advance that you do not want the use of any life-sustaining treatment to prolong your life in the event that you become terminally ill and unconscious and where death is imminent.
9. COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS
Do this daily before you sleep and you are more likely to wake up happy and positive.
10. PURPOSE-FILLED LIFE
To me, the meaning of life is to discover my gifts and use them to make a difference. Money simply provides more options.

Outlook 2018

Property market finally on the upturn

After three years of falling prices, 2018 is looking like the year that the Singapore property market’s long-awaited turnaround finally gains traction. Analysts reckon that a trough has been reached though they are careful to tamp down excessive optimism.

Residential outlook for 2018

Most property consultants are expecting new-home sales to ring in at roughly 11,000 units for 2017. This is a 38% increase from the 7,972 units registered in 2016, says Tricia Song, Colliers International head of research for Singapore.
This year, 18 private residential projects with an estimated 6,000 units were launched for sale, says Ong Teck Hui, JLL national director of research. He foresees about 20 projects being launched next year, yielding 8,000 to 9,000 units. Ong’s forecast for new home sales in 2018 is 11,000 to 12,000 units.

Looking Ahead to 2018: Property market poised to roar back to life

SINGAPORE — After several years in the doldrums, the recovery of the Singapore property market will be in full swing in 2018, experts say.
The jury is still out on whether concerns over a potential supply glut are warranted, but experts point out that how the market shapes up next year will depend very much on demand from buyers. This, in turn, hinges on the one major lever which the Government could yet call upon: The cooling measures, several of which — including the Total Debt Servicing Ratio (TDSR) — have remained in place since 2013.

Singapore Market Outlook 2018
ECONOMY

Supported by the strong rebound in the manufacturing sector and a synchronised recovery in global economies, Singapore’s annual GDP growth of 3.6% in 2017 surpassed initial estimates. While growth is expected to moderate in 2018, the continued focus on digitisation and transformation of Singapore’s key industries will help pave the way for more sustainable growth in the longer term

OFFICE

The Singapore economy has shown stronger growth momentum in the latter half of 2017. While this has been largely powered by the manufacturing sector, the services sectors have shown promising signs of life. This is expected to underpin demand amidst a supply pipeline that is tapering off. With these stronger market fundamentals, a robust office rental recovery looks set to be underway in 2018.

RETAIL

The downward pressure on the retail market could be coming to an end, as it finds its footing amidst stronger economic fundamentals. Placemaking will remain a key focus for landlords and retailers as they seek to play a more proactive role to keep their customers engaged.

LOGISTICS

Warehouse supply hit a record level in 2017 as most major logistics developments were completed. Net absorption lagged supply, which weighed on occupancy. Along with the robust growth in macroeconomic industrial indicators in 2017, the industrial market is beginning to rebalance as net absorption slowly catches up with the net supply.

RESIDENTIAL

Total housing demand in 2017 was 25,010, far exceeding the previous three-year (2014-2016) average demand of 14,447 units. Overall homes prices have risen for two consecutive quarters to recover by 1.1% for 2017 after falling by 13.2% through 15 quarters of decline. As home prices turn around, fundamental demand now stands at around 18,500 units.

CAPITAL MARKETS

The recovery in the occupier market influenced a strong drive in Singapore’s investment market in 2017. After a busy year driven by the wave of residential collective sales and several large commercial deals, it is back to normalisation for the investment market in 2018.

Office Real Estate (Singapore)

Overall Outlook

Expect a recovery in office rents. Based on the CBRE data, Grade A CBD office rents bottomed in 1Q17-2Q17 at S$8.95 per square foot per month (psf/mth) which is earlier than consensus and our expectations of a low at end-2017 and early-2018. Since then, Grade A CBD rents have started to recover, increasing to S$9.10 psf/mth in 3Q17 and ending the year at S$9.40 psf/mth (+3.3% YoY, +3.3% QoQ). The improvement in 4Q17 was the first on-year rise in nine quarters and second consecutive quarter where we saw an on-quarter rise

Looking ahead: Singapore’s real estate market in 2018

2018 looks promising for Singapore’s real estate sector.
Singapore government’s series of cooling measures, introduced between 2012 to 2013, resulted in the local residential market trading into negative territory for few years. Four years on, we finally see the property market bottoming out in Q3 of 2017 and witnessed a pick-up in transaction activities, particularly in the residential sector.

Industry / Real Estate

Industrial Real Estate (Singapore)

Overall Outlook

We believe the outlook for Singapore’s industrial sector will remain soft in the immediate term and will only start to bottom out from 2018 onwards on the back of abating supply risk. The manufacturing sector’s recent recovery is fuelling expectations that demand could pick up in 2018 and bottom out in 2019, just as supply abates. However, the recovery is uneven as firms are still looking to consolidate or downsize their space requirements to remain cost efficient. Vacancy rates are expected to rise to 11% and bottom out only from 2019.

It also expects higher sales of new homes as a buoyant collective sale market drives up demand while reducing the supply of units to buy.

How can I be sure that the property agent I am planning to engage is performing estate agency work legally?

All businesses and individuals must be licensed and registered respectively by CEA in order to conduct estate agency work in Singapore. It is an offence for a person to perform or accept fees for estate agency work without being registered with CEA through a licensed property agency. So to safeguard your interests, do not respond to advertisements and flyers put out by individuals without a CEA registration number.
All property agents are also required to carry an Estate Agent Card that bears the following information:

  • Property agent’s full name
  • Registration number
  • Photograph
  • Property agency name, logo, and its licence number

5 things your property agent never told you

Buying or selling a home is one of the most expensive, complicated events in your life, no thanks to the ever-changing government regulations. Whether it’s your eligibility for a loan or the bewildering range of seller’s stamp duties depending on your occupation period, it can all snowball into one huge headache. So, most of us shell out good (commission) money for a property agent hoping to tap into their expertise to buy that dream home at a bargain or sell your property at a premium. Housing agents might have the industry knowledge to help you make a good deal, but be aware of what they’re not telling you, too.
