In comparison to last year, homebuyers today are much more cautious, due to the numerous rounds of market cooling, softer conditions in the economy, and higher financing costs.

As homebuyers have more options and prices, they are becoming more selective and cost-conscious. This has led to a slower pace of sales as buyers take longer in making decisions.

The March figures brought the sales of the first quarter up to 1,175 unit. The total for Q1 was 7.6 percent higher than Q4’s 1,092 sales, but 6.4percent lower than Q1 of last year.

The sales of selected projects that had superior attributes and realistic price points were better than the overall sales.
