  • Entities and trustees also saw a 30 percentage points (ppt) bump in their ABSD rates from 35% to 65% for any residential property they purchase.

However, we believe developers are still likely to turn more cautious on land tenders, given the still hefty penalties they will incur if they are not able to complete the housing development and sell all units of housing accommodation in the development within five years from the acquisition date. Hence, land price growth may become more tempered.
