    Spot housing trends and more with free STProperty feature

    HOME buyers and owners can now make more informed decisions when they buy, sell or rent residential properties with a new and free feature available on Singapore Press Holdings' online property portal, STProperty (

    Called Singapore Property Watch, it allows people to check past transacted prices of public and private properties.

    Details - such as the general buyer profile of homes in a project, as well as the profitability of transacted homes - are available in some cases. Prices of nearby properties can be compared, too.

    For home owners, they can get an estimate of their property's value with Singapore Property Watch.

    The feature also allows home buyers to spot property trends - such as price movements and home-sale volumes - by housing type and district.

    Home sales are broken down into those of new homes, resale units, and subsales, which refers to units that are resold before they are completed.

    Singapore Property Watch is a joint collaboration between STProperty and property-analytics firm Square Foot Research.
