According to a table by a DBS Bank, the top 10 developers by units have sold 13% to 50% of their total units as of Nov 2019, reported Singapore Business Review citing a DBS Bank report.

City Developments had the largest percentage of units sold at 53%, with MCL Land (52%) and Oxley and Partners (50%) on its heels. These companies comprise the top three developers in terms of built units.

Allgreen and Guocoland, meanwhile, recorded low sell-through rates as of Q3 2019.

Developers are becoming more cautious towards land-banking and are now more focused on clearing their inventories.

“With the 5-year Additional Buyer Stamp Duty (ABSD) deadline to come from 2021 onwards, we anticipate a faster momentum for selective projects,” said the report.
