It's been an honour and pleasure working together with the PropertyGuru team (Timothy Beer and Dr Tan Tee Khoon) over the past month on a collaboration for their quarterly Singapore property market trend report.
It's not the first time collaborating with PG but this time round, it certainly was the most intense.
Balancing work, writing and the little one climbing on my back several times a day, singing and dancing all around me, and asking me a thousand why's has been a real handful, but i guess i'm slowly attaining the super power of "noise immunity".
Slowly but surely.
The joy and pains of working from home with home-bound kids!
Anyway, we worked through mountains of data to distill and dissect the micro trends in key districts and sought to understand why certain areas performed better and why some didn't.
Hopefully, armed with this market outlook brief, you will understand better what has transpired in 1st Quarter 2020 and have better clarity on your investment goals in the coming months.
One very interesting insight explained in the report is PropertyGuru's proprietary Property Supply Index (PSI), taken from the largest real-time database of listings in Singapore, and which may provide us leading indicators on the price elasticity of the market moving forward.
So do read about it.
