Eleven Circle Line stations to open on April 17

Read on to see which stations will be up.
This means that Stage 1 and Stage 2 of the Circle Line will now be complete. These stations are, beginning from Bartley and ending at Dhoby Ghaut:
SINGAPORE : Property developers seem pessimistic about the outlook for Singapore's real estate market in 2012, with some analysts foreseeing a five to ten percent drop in property prices this year. But market watchers also say the strong interest in recent property launches could defy these forecasts and even lead to more cooling measures. Celebrations continue but property developers are still in the dark about the outlook for Singapore's property market in 2012. Mr Wong Heang Fine, President, Real Estate Developer's Association of Singapore, said: "We are cautious. On the market going forward, it all depends on how the global economy goes in the next eleven months. So it's really anybody's guess." URA data shows the rate of price increase for private residential properties moderating for the ninth consecutive quarter with rentals also tapering off.

According to April's price range of residential units sold from URA, there's an uptrend in the sale of condos in the mid-end price range ($1,000 to $2,000 psf). April has seen a total of 1,211 units sold in this price range, that's a 53% increase compared to March (791). High-end units on the other hand, didn't fare so well, seeing a 40% drop in sales. Has the high-end segment lost steam? Or perhaps taking a breather? Or could the turmoil in far-away Europe be a contributing factor? It's hard to say. It's interesting to note that sales in the mass market and mid-end market have contributed greatly to the big hike in April sale numbers. Developers have of late been concentrating on the mass-market ( Tree House ) and mid-end ( Waterbank at Dakota ) developments, rightly so as these segments have been neglected since the start of the year.
