3.       Based on the mortgage data obtained from the banks, there were 103 transactions for private residential properties in Q2 2021, compared to 112 transactions in Q1 2021. The majority of these transactions were for detached house (66.0%); followed by semi-detached houses (19.4%); terrace houses (6.8%); apartments (4.9%); and land (2.9%). 

4.       The median purchase price for all types of private residential properties was BND277,000 in Q2 2021, an increase of 16.4% compared to Q2 2020 and higher by 12.1% compared to Q1 2021. The median purchase prices for specific types of properties were BND299,500 for detached houses; BND256,000 for semi-detached houses; BND210,000 for terrace houses; BND230,000 for apartments; and BND145,000 for land. 

5.       The published statistics and index should be treated as general information only and one should not rely solely on these data to draw specific conclusions on a particular private residential property as property values vary with location, land size, floor area and so on.  

6.       For more information on RPPI, members of the public may refer to the technical notes on the methodology, as well as updated statistics from on the BDCB website at www.bdcb.gov.bn. Updates on the RPPI will also be available via BDCB's Instagram account @centralbank.brunei.
