Experts say these large neighbourhoods mean the transaction volume would be higher.
ERA Realty key executive officer Eugene Lim said: "Flats in Jurong West are slightly cheaper than Jurong East but it's still located close enough.
Jurong East is highly sought after due to the High Speed Rail and its positioning as the second CBD.
"Tampines has always been popular as the east's regional hub. The infrastructure at Sengkang has started to fall into place although the large number of transactions could be due to more flats reaching the minimum occupation period."
