Property Investment

Many potential local and foreign buyers have approached us on which property investments are the best for this new norm of COVID Pandemic.  While there are many good residential properties for investment, many are keen to explore the commercial properties available for sale, directly from the developers.  Commercial properties are known for higher rental yield and all would want to avoid paying the Additional Buyer Stamp Duty (for residential only).

Without much ado, the five best current commercial property investments, are as follows:

Top 5 Reasons to Consider Commercial Properties in Singapore

1.   Singapore is a great place for investment.

The world is in a constant state of conflict and there is much chaos in major economies.      In Singapore, the government has been tweaking the properties cooling measures to ensure there is no property bubble and the increase in property prices has been steady.  Investors have been enjoying a fairly good return on investment.

Some major factors to consider investment in Singapore properties include:

  • The Singapore Dollar is one of the only four currencies that appreciate against the US Dollar.
  • The country continually attracts many notable high net worth executives,
  • it has low political risks
  • It is well known to be a safe haven for assets

2.  Avoidance of Residential Property Taxes

Savvy investors know that one of the best investment is to get a Property.  One of the most notorious Cooling Measures is the implementation of Additional Seller Stamp Duty (ABSD) which applies to the following group of buyers for residential properties (based on Cooling Measures in April 2023):

  • Singaporeans: second home property at 20%; third and subsequent residential property purchases at 30%
  • Singapore Permanent Residents (PRs): The first purchase will be 5% while second is 30% and subsequent purchases will be 35%
  • For foreigners: a flat rate of 60% for any residential property purchase
  • For entities (companies or associations): 65% ABSD for every residential property

Thus to avoid ABSD, many investors are looking into commercial property investment which does not have ABSD.

3.  Future Tenure of Industrial Land

In 2012, The Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI) in an effort to make the industrial property more affordable, announced that more sites with shorter tenure and smaller sites will be released.  As a result, the Industrial Government Land Sales (IGLS) is capping the maximum tenure to 30 years, instead of 60-year lease previously.

The five best investments mentioned above are above 30-year lease.  In fact, 2 of the recommended commercial properties are FREEHOLD, a tenure which is rarer.

4.  Rare Gems Among The Commercial Properties

The supply of some types of commercial properties available for sale to investors is indeed low.   There are 3 instances:

  • FREEHOLD TENURE.  Freehold land in Singapore very limited and it is getting scared.  In fact, freehold land open to foreigners’ purchase is indeed low on a global basis.  Two of the recommended properties which have freehold tenures are Foodfab@Mandai, The Flow Mall and Hexacube
  • GRADE A OFFICE UNITS.  While there are no international ratings for grading office building, many investors recognized certain buildings to be obviously Grade A.  Factors such as impressive secured lobby and foyer, the touch and feel and high-quality finishings are just some factors.  Getting a Grade A Office Space in the Downtown Financial Hub of Singapore is difficult.  Today, the opportunity is opened to investors at Plus at 20 Cecil Street
  • FOOD FACTORY.  There are many restrictions in massive food production in Singapore and food factories can only be found in Food Zones.  For those who understand or can relate to the food business, the Foodfab@Mandai and CT FoodChain food factory would be an ideal choice.

5. Cost of Land, Materials and Labour Going Up

Looking at the trend of land prices, the next high cost is always higher than the previous land cost.  With land scarce in Singapore, this cannot be avoided.  At the same time, the government has been tweaking the property cooling measure to ensure that there is no property bubble and has been slowing down the rate of increase.

With the COVID situation, the cost of materials and labor are threatening to go up rapidly.  In the near future, developers would have to increase the prices of properties in order to continue to be in the business.
