Singapore by Market Segments (CCR, RCR, OCR)

We love acronyms so the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) has divided Singapore into three main regions, which are named ‘market segments’ to make it easier to distinguish when comparing the performance of each segment.

Price range per Market Segment

As you can imagine the further you go from CCR, the price will tend to vary. So if you don’t mind the extra distance or prefer another area based on its unique characteristics, such as near the beach, school, park, etc., you can use this to your advantage. Do note that the price gap between the market segments has been shrinking in recent years.
