The sales rise – 1,270 brand-new personal homes were offered, up 13 per cent from August – came as developers accelerated launches after the Hungry Ghost month, with some in the city-fringe area confirming catnip for purchasers. 4 of 5 new launches last month – Avenue South Residence, Meyer Estate, The Antares as well as Uptown@Farrer – remain in the city edge, while Cuscaden Book remains in prime area 10.
