5 most popular condos in February

Sims Urban Oasis, a 1,024-unit condominium by GuocoLand at the junction of Sims Drive and Aljunied Road was the best-selling residential project in February 2015, according to an OrangeTee report citing the latest URA data.

A total of 112 units out of the 200 launched were sold at a median price of $1,397 psf, which translates to a take-up rate of 56 percent.

The report stated that a large percentage of sales by developers in February was attributed to Sims Urban Oasis, the only new launch in the month.

Excluding executive condominiums, new private home sales recorded 382 transactions, a 2.0 percent increase from January’s 374 transactions.

Looking ahead, OrangeTee expects more competition in the market as new launches and a wave of relaunches from existing projects put more pressure on developers.

Here’s a look at the top performing projects in February – Sims Urban Oasis, The Skywoods, City Gate, Symphony Suites and Lakeville.
