Singapore’s struggling housing sector looks set for a shot in the arm in 2016, with the strict regulations around the market likely to be eased.
According to analysts from Maybank Kim Eng, the property market could experience a boost in sales with the implementation of cooling measure easing, something the island nation’s developers have long been petitioning for.
The projected cooling measures could result in an almost 30% increase on existing home sales, with sales touching 800 units in the next year.
