The demand for homebuyers may have hit a decrease in recent months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but that does not mean that selling has completely halted.
According to data from the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA), the overall price index of private homes slipped by 1.0 in the first quarter of 2020, after rising for three consecutive quarters.
This goes to show that despite the circuit breaker measures, there was still demand for home buying and selling and homeowners alongside real estate agents found new and creative ways to continue with sales. Therefore, purchases were not entirely halted, but new ways of selling were created, which has proven to be effective and may continue on past post-covid due to the efficiency of online and virtual viewings.
