The first quarter recorded a sharp decline of 50.6% q-o-q in prime non-landed property sales, as a result of extra customer’s stamp task walkings for foreign buyers enforced in December in 2014.

Top quantum sales remained to originate from new tasks like Les Maisons, which clocked the leading 3 highest transactions in value for 1H2022.
