Singapore Budget 2018 Property/REIT related measures and impact

Property – Top marginal buyer’s stamp duty (BSD) raised from 3% to 4% for portion of home values above S$1mn.
Enhanced proximity housing grants for families/singles buying resale HDBs to stay with parents – from 20k to 30k for families.

REITs – Tax transparency for exchange-traded funds (ETFs) of Singapore real estate investment trusts (S-Reits). Reits ETF will no longer be subjected to 17% corporate tax on the specified income that is distributed to the unitholders.

Impact: Bigger ticket purchases and en bloc purchases will be impacted more as the incremental 1% tax is only on the portion of home values above S$1mn. Last 2 years, the average transaction value was c.S$1.5mn and below, for condominium units with average size of c.100sqm. For the average transaction, impact will be smaller – 0.3% or S$5,000 extra for a $1.5mn house. As the quantum goes higher, the closer the impact to the full 1% of purchase price. We do not expect a material negative impact on demand given the relatively small full impact vs purchase price for the average transaction. En bloc sales momentum, which has slowed lately with lower premiums paid vs reserve prices, could see further slowdown.

REITs – This has been what SGX and MAS have been lobbying for, for more than 2 years. Positive for S-REIT sector as a whole given that the increased demand for S-REIT ETFs will translate to higher demand for S-REITs as a whole. Given the relatively low number of S-REIT ETFs listed, the impact could be less significant for now.
