“We’ve noticed that the pandemic has drawn out an additional set of buyers, as more look to invest and purchase locally, have more time on hand to seek out properties and take advantage of the lower interest rates being offered,” said Sharon Lee, Head of Auction and Sales at Knight Frank Singapore.
“As such, we’ve witnessed more owner sales being transacted and more realistic prices offered for such properties, as compared to pre-COVID times.”
Knight Frank shared that it will hold the next round of auctions on 13 and 27 November. Interested parties can register for the virtual event at www.knightfrank.com.sg/auction.
