Top 11 Property Developers In Singapore

Property Developers In Singapore Feature Image

Singapore’s housing market is among the best in the world, with developers going out of their way to come up with amazing, new-age designs. Only Singapore citizens and permanent residents have access to the subsidized houses by the Housing & Development Board (HBD). Foreigners, however, can only purchase condominium units, which come in varying sizes and designs.

Despite Singapore’s ever-increasing reputation as home to one of the best real estate sectors, it is crucial to do your due diligence before settling for a particular developer. Read on as we list 11 best property developers in Singapore and their notable projects.
