研究报告:交易量今年首季减20%至25% 本地私宅价格整体趋稳

2011-03-29 《联合早报》 龚慧婷 分析师说,私宅价格已出现趋软迹象,显示降温措施已开始生效,政府短期内推出新降温措施的可能性不大。 最新的房地产研究报告显示,与去年第四季比较,私宅交易量在今年第一季减少了20至25%,整体价格已趋稳,有分析师猜测,政府在短期内再推出新降温措施的可能性不大。 莱坊(Knight Frank)研究部主管方宝顺在其研究报告中更指出,整体私宅价格(包括由发展商直接售卖的新单位、楼花转售和转售私宅)大致已趋稳,特别是大众私宅价格已出现趋软迹象,显示降温措施已开始生效,政府应该不会再出手。 他指出,今年首季的住宅房地产价格,上下的波动不超过2%,已经稳定下来,达到了政府希望让房地产价格维持稳定和可持续发展的目标。   他也预测,今年全年,大众私宅的价格将下跌最多达5%。 昨天发布新报告的还有世邦魏理仕(CBRE)和戴德梁行(DTZ)。 世邦魏理仕指出,在今年第一季,由发展商直接出售的私宅,估计介于3200至3400个单位之间,比去年第四季售出的4241个单位,少了20至25%。除了成交量减少,与去年底比较,新私宅价格也大致维持平稳。 方宝顺也发现,不少示范单位的参观者减少,与去年下半年火热的情况相去甚远。在第一季,发展上每个月平均卖出约1100个新单位,比2010年的平均1382个单位少了约12%。 虽然降温措施后,买家开始采观望态度,成交量下跌是预期中的事,但成交量下跌的幅度,没有分析师较早前预期的大。 售价比之前稍降 尽管如此,方宝顺昨天也指出,整体价格,尤其是大众私宅的价格,已开始趋软。在一些情况下,发展商开始推出一些“好康”,如现金回扣礼券和为最早购屋者可享有特别折扣。一些新项目在最近推出新单位时,售价也比之前的一些单位稍微便宜一点。 根据莱坊截至22日的数据,在首季,高档共管公寓价格季比上涨2.1%,平均成交价是每平方英尺2270元;超高档豪宅价格稍下跌0.3%,达3229元;中档私宅成交价上涨最多,达8.5%,达1670元;大众私宅价格只上涨2.2%,达900元,与去年第四季3.6%比较,涨幅收窄。 方宝顺说,第一季,中档私宅的涨幅比第四季的1.6%涨幅大,但主要由东海岸一些有海景的公寓带动,若加入其他地区比较,整体价格上涨的幅度其实很小。 他认为,接下来,随着更多发展商推出更多新项目,价格估计会进一步趋软。 在第一季,总价让人觉得较负担的起的“迷你型”单位,依旧受到市场欢迎。此外,一些地点好,靠近地铁站的项目也卖得不错。 世邦魏理仕的报告也显示,第一季卖得好的项目有靠近火车站的Spottiswoode 18,已卖出251个单位中的90%,平均尺价2000元,此外,濒水项目Waterfront Isle(561个单位)和靠近三巴旺地铁站的Canberra Residences(320个单位),也分别卖出75%的单位,尺价分别为990和830元。 高档买家依旧在等待时机进场,因此,豪宅项目只零星卖出一些单位。 世邦魏理仕私宅部执行董事陈金道也猜测,一些可能在第二季登场的新项目,包括弗洛拉通道(Flora Drive)的Hedges Park、基里尼路(Killiney Road)上的The Boutiq、汤申路上段的共管公寓和Luxus Hills有地私宅的第五期项目。 陈金道说:“假设经济稳定,第二季与第一季的发展步伐相同,那么,在第二季,新单位的成交量可能介于3000至3500个单位之间,价格相信不会有显著的波动。”
