The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) said a total of 632 units were sold last month excluding executive condominiums.
That's significantly lower than the 1,702 private homes sold in November.
Around 489 units were sold in the outlying areas or outside central region while 108 private homes were sold in city fringes.
Only 35 units were sold in the prime district.
The best selling projects were all located outside the central region: The Archipelago with 103 units sold, The Nautical with 84 units and The Palette with 61 units sold.
In December, developers placed 937 units of new homes for sale, compared to 1,967 units launched the previous month.
