Multiple offers and price bidding wars for choice flats were common as buyers were willing to shell out extra for premium flats as they believe that supply of these flats is limited especially for newer resale flats in mature estates,” said Ms Sun.
Overall resale volume dipped slightly in the last quarter on the back of rising resale prices and increasing cash over valuation, she added.“The supply and demand imbalance of flats has also caused prices of HDB resale flats to climb in certain locations,” she said.
