These properties have been experiencing a remarkable surge in popularity and value in recent years.

In this article, we will delve into the performance of the landed property market, its appeal, and where opportunities lie for prospective investors. 

1. Performance of the Landed Property Market

Over the last few years, the landed property market has displayed impressive performance, steadily gaining value and demand. The price index of landed property is growing faster than non-landed Property. Different factors contribute to this positive trend, making it an attractive choice for investors.

In 2022, the median prices of the types of landed property were ranked from most affordable to most expensive. Strata-Landed House median price was stated to be $3,330,000, making it the most affordable type of landed property. Whereas Good Class Bungalow in Bukit Timah stated to cost $34,000,000, making it the most expensive out of all. This variety allows potential investors to choose properties that align with their budget and investment goals. 

2. What is so Special About Landed Properties?

What makes landed properties particularly enticing is their unique appeal. They represent a different level of status symbol, signifying wealth, success, and social status, given their higher price point compared to non-landed properties.

Landed properties offer more space, privacy, and exclusivity, creating a sense of luxury and comfort for homeowners.

Low Supply, High Potential

One of the key factors driving the growth in landed property prices is the low supply of such properties in Singapore.

According to the URA Masterplan, designated landed housing areas in the central region contribute to this scarcity.

With an average of only 2,127 homes over a 13-year period, the limited availability of landed housing creates a high potential for price appreciation, making it a valuable asset for investors. 

Landed home prices have shown resilience, even during uncertain times and government interventions.

In 2018, cooling measures impacted landed property prices for just one quarter before they bounced back. Even amid the COVID-19 pandemic, landed property prices remained stable, not showing any significant fluctuations.

This resilience demonstrates the enduring value of landed properties as an investment.

3. Why Strata-Landed Housing Deserves Attention

Strata-Landed housing is an emerging trend in the real estate market, combining the best of both worlds: landed living with the benefits of communal facilities. Some examples of Strata-Landed housing include Belgravia Ace and Parkwood Collection.

Enjoy More Space at a Lower Price

Strata-Landed housing offers a wider price gap compared to conventional condos. For the same price, Strata-Landed homes provide more than twice the living space of a condo unit. This means that homeowners can enjoy the comfort and spaciousness of landed living without the hefty price tag.


Unlike other landed properties, Strata-Landed homes can be sold to foreigners. This opens up a world of opportunities for international investors who want to experience the charm of landed living in Singapore.

Lower Upkeep Costs

Strata-Landed housing is not only cost-effective in terms of the initial purchase but also when it comes to upkeep. Maintenance costs for Strata-Landed homes are typically significantly lower than those for landed properties, making them an attractive choice for budget-conscious homeowners.
