The so-called Circuit Break Period in Singapore, its own definition of Covid-19 lockdown, was expected to stay for just four weeks – starting the 7th of April until the 4th of May. But along with the unexpected updates, these also changed as it was decided by the government that it will be extended until the 2nd day of June. It was then expected as well that businesses that offer non-essential products and services would be closed – one of which would be real estate companies that also offer recently launched condo show flats.

Most people working in the real estate industry have this question in mind which makes them ask themselves. “Who would want to buy a property without seeing it in person?”

The same worries and thoughts also bring brilliant marketing strategies to use and adapt to the current situation as the newly launched condos came up with another opportunity to grab and still boost their sales. How is it possible? Simple – with the use of advanced technology, marketing styles, and great deals which help increase the buyers and closed transactions continuously.

How is it possible that there were still clients who purchased recently launched condos despite CB period?

Most people would think that it is just because of great discounts, but in fact, more than that is the convenience it gives buyers because it saves time and effort to visit a showflat of recently launched condos given that there is no actual condo to check.

As per the agent we have talked about, it is not the same with the unit resale as buyers who see newly launched condos will likely have the idea that they are going to be the first owners of the units – which means fewer worries and doubts.

There were a total of 433 recently launched condo units that were sold during the circuit breaker period, which is relatively higher compared to the resell units sold during the same timeline. It means that 60% of the total number of closed deals for condos are made up of new launch units. This is an increase in sales from the first quarter of 2020 which is 51%.
