I suppose that the data here does not take into account transaction fees such as the various stamp duties, agent’s commission as well as renovation costs (important distinction new-resale vs resale-resale transactions).

Hey Aaron, thanks for sharing this. Yes it does not take into account all the other costs associated with purchasing properties

Thank you for an impressive write up. In comparing new launches against resale, the capital outlay is much lesser for new launches as compared to a resale units. In a resale transaction, initial outlay is the 25% plus legal and stamp duty followed by 4 years of instalments before one could sell to avoid sellers’ stamp duty. In comparison, the capital outlay is much lesser in the case of new launches, 1st few years will have progress payments and 4th year it can be sold. In your computation were these number factored? i am asking purely for the seek of understanding?

Hi! Thanks for your question. We did not factor these in. Understandably, interest costs would be lower given the smaller loan one would have to take before selling. But this analysis was to see returns only. It could be higher for new launches even more so given the lower interest costs
