PRICES of private, leasehold resale homes have now shot past their previous peak in late 2007, according to a new report by property consultancy DTZ.

The latest price rises for this segment, dominated by upgraders, were relatively modest, but enough to push average prices past the previous high.

The more elite segment of landed resale homes saw the biggest price rises in the first quarter of the year to reach another new high while prime freehold prices edged nearer their previous peak.

SINGAPORE : Demand for new homes in the first quarter of this year more than doubled that of the fourth quarter of 2009.

Property consultancy CB Richard Ellis (CBRE) said response to new projects launched in the first three months of the year chalked up close to 4,000 homes compared to only 1,860 in the previous quarter.

This is despite the introduction of another set of property curbs in February.

The property consultancy firm said this showed the resilience of residential demand from both owner-occupiers and investors.

Nevertheless, CBRE said the property measures seemed to be effective in weeding out short term speculators.
