What will it take to roll back stamp duties? - Property Auctions News, Property Investment

The Total Debt Servicing Ratio (TDSR) framework will not be removed any time soon, according to the latest Singapore residential property report by OCBC Investment Research. “We believe that the TDSR framework is here to stay, while other measures, such as the Additional Buyer’s Stamp Duty (ABSD) and the Seller’s Stamp Duty (SS), appear to be more probable candidates for easing if the authorities potentially look to reverse property curbs ahead,” said the bank. “In our view, however, this scenario of policy reversal is only likely to occur when residential price declines in the market have exceeded a meaningful threshold of about 10 percent,” it added. The report also foresees an oversupply of units in the years to come. Including HDB, DBSS and EC completions, 50,000, 49,700 and 73,600 homes are expected to come into the physical supply in 2014, 2015 and 2016, respectively.
