    [B][SIZE="5"]Developers less positive about market[/SIZE][/B]


    PROPERTY players are a bit less optimistic about the market than they were previously, according to an industry measure.

    The sentiment index has weakened to 4.9 from 5.7, while the mood for the months ahead also slipped as compared with the fourth quarter, a likely reflection of the recent market cooling measures.

    The index, which is compiled by the National University of Singapore's Department of Real Estate, consists of scores ranging from 0 - the most pessimistic - to 10, which registers a high level of optimism.

    As part of the quarterly survey, developers were asked about their expectations of the new private property launches.

    As a sign of weakening outlook towards the property sector, 62 per cent of developers surveyed expect more residential units to be launched over the next six months compared with 74 per cent in the previous quarter.

    About twice as many developers - around 69 per cent - as compared with the fourth quarter also expect prices to remain flat.

    Only 35 per cent of respondents anticipate greater interest in the collective sale market, down from 52 per cent.

    The way to overcome this fear is to control the launch of new projects so as to create a pen up demand.

    With massive oversupply of both hdb and pte units looming in the coming months and weakening interest going forward... how to have pent up demand leh?


    Put it another way... similar to the equities markets.... when all who wanted to buy would have already bought.... what happens next?

    Those developers who have bought from GLC cannot wait too long to launch. The clock is ticking away for their lease.

    nobody has the right answer

    those who has been running the country for so long face so much challenges

    like any football matches. fans are the ones who think that they are the coach...shouting from bench that striker no good la shld attack from left pass to left midfield la....bla blah blah but when you field these fans, they may just freeze and screw big time on ground.

    same for property mkt..justclike doctor. you dont feel well, doc asks for symptoms and prescribe medicine and see if it works. nope then prescribe stronger medicine otherwise antibiotics..worstcase admit patient to hospital and put on drip

    all can say this and that but when put him/her n MBT shoes and run and call the shots....this seat is hot

    next measures if i am him would be (same like CHina and HK) and avoid any possible bubbl burst is either to mop up liquidity in market attractive bond issuance or raise interest rates (EMI will shoot up investors will think twice)

    from previous cooling measures, MBT gving hint to all not to gear up, within your financial means and not to punt. vicious cycle....private price comes down, same for hdb. shld property prices tumble, alot of property cheonger wld hv been bunt badly like what happened to HK property investors

    if MBT push too hard on HDB prices.....the impact will be on existing HDB prices. some may have used the increased wealth to do business and failed and now want Govt to help. hear so many stories of those in heartland who gave$$ to children or those who fell prey to mistresses....etc

    current situation is like in chinese family third generation wants to split wealth and enjoy. first generation makes the wealth second generation maintain, third generation wants to enjoy. no hard work but all the fast ways to make $$$ like cheong property..casino

    my personal take - inflation is everywhere globally not only in SG. hence govt is saving for rainy days. we see neighbouring country or in mid west (black gold) where certain ppl gets alot of subsidies and govt suppport. see what is the outcome on attitude
