Core Central Region (CCR)

CCR is the heart of Singapore, the prime metropolitan area, the CBD district where significant commercial buildings are. Full of amenities with high-end restaurants, shopping malls and hotels. You can easily find the most expensive private residential and commercial property in Singapore and perhaps also in the whole world.

Rest of Central Region (RCR)

RCR is still within the central region but outside the CCR. The properties here are mid-tier and of high-quality. Many expats are choosing homes in this area to rent as the prices are more desirable when compared to those in CCR. And yet ease of access to the workplace in the CBD area.

Where: Districts 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 14, 15 and 20.

Outside Central Region (OCR)

OCR covers the rest of Singapore and these districts are 16, 17, 18, 19, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27 and 28.

You can find the highest number of residential properties in OCR. And also where all the HDB properties are.

The condominiums, terraces and townhouses here are mainly of the mass market.

The prices here are more affordable than those in CCR and OCR, but still, some people will consider them expensive than last time, which is understandable – only if they have a crystal ball. Choose your strategy – Either buy low and sell high (less likely) or buy high and sell higher (most likely).

There are so many public transport options here that it is never a problem to get to anywhere in Singapore.

Also, with the government’s decentralization plan, many banks and technology companies have set up offices in the regional centres that make homes in OCR even more attractive.
