Discovering the Perfect Affordable Resale Leasehold Flat

When Tania arrived in Singapore seven years ago for a new job, she was elated to find that the city was more than a manufactured metropolis of glass, shopping and steel towers.

Instead, she said, she found a safe, vibrant, cosmopolitan social scene and a natural wonder. “Contrary to what most people think, nature is everywhere,” she said. “Singapore is the perfect combination of living in a global business hub with access to the Botanic Gardens and Sentosa’s beaches.”

Living in a rented apartment in the district of Orchard, she longed for a place where she could truly plant her roots — a flat that didn’t just offer shelter but also a sense of belonging. Raised near the Cape, she landed in Singapore in 2016 to work at one of the big tech companies. She lived in a rental house as the city grew around her. Every evening, as the sun dipped below the horizon, casting a golden glow over Singapore’s skyline, Tania dreamt about a home that wasn’t hers yet.

She was ready to search and buy a flat for sale in Singapore. Searching for a flat isn’t as straightforward as it may seem. Overpaying or buying a property in the wrong neighbourhood can mean the difference between leaving a lot of money on the table when selling.  

Last year, she considered investing in property back home in Massachusetts for an additional income stream. Still, with the prices and inflation rates surging in the United States, the returns wouldn’t make it worthwhile. Meanwhile, Singapore was experiencing its own boom, fueled by limited properties available and a bevvy of local buyers: Home prices rose 6.7 percent in 2023.

With her monthly rent set to increase by roughly 30%, Tania grew more comfortable investing her money in Singapore. With a budget of about $3.1 million for a two-bedroom flat in one of Singapore’s higher-end condos, she was referred to the team at Singapore Luxury Homes (SLH).

Sunita Gill, cofounder and COO of Singapore Luxury Homes, calls it a promising year for Singapore homebuyers as “developments recalibrate their pricing and the market growth takes on a more moderate pace shifting towards more realistic pricing”.

Tania wanted to focus her search on new launches but found those in her budget too small. So Gill instead recommended a couple of leasehold condos in older buildings that she had identified as having bigger floor plans than some of their newer counterparts. 

“While leaseholds were typically second to freehold properties, the increase in just slightly older but larger footprint of leasehold properties might be the perfect buy for shorter-term investments. Many older flats in Singapore come with huge windows, a balcony and extra space for visitors, which were deal breakers,” explains Gill.

With expert guidance from the SLH team, Tania’s search led her to a flat that felt like more than just an investment: it felt like home. Gill helped Tania understand a financial model that allowed her to negotiate a higher-priced property that made sense with the continued growth of Core Central Region prices at 11% between 2021 and 2023 and secured the property within her initial budget. The older leasehold condo she chose had the expansive floor plan she desired, along with the charm and character that newer buildings often lacked. The purchase of the flat culminated years of hard work and marked a new chapter in a city that had become her second home.
