Also Launches Book on Singapore Insights For Overseas Developers
iProperty.com Singapore has announced the winners of the 3rd annual iProperty.com People’s Choice Awards. The awards celebrate the best of Southeast Asia’s residential property developments, based on consumer preference and backed by over 800 votes on 65 nominations. The winners of this year’s iProperty.com People’s Choice Award represent popular names in the property developer, home furnishing and other property-related consumer services.
At the awards, iProperty.com also launched its first book – “Successful Strategies: The Art of Effective Real Estate Marketing in Singapore”. The book serves as a guide to overseas developers selling their properties here, with insights into the Singapore property market and into the savvy Singaporean investor. The 200-page book covers the Singapore property market, differing types of investors and homebuyers, their finance options and real estate agencies. It also highlights various marketing strategies that can be used by overseas buyers to reach Singaporeans.
“Congratulations to all the award winners! These developers have shown the highest standards of innovation and design, and have now been recognised by Singapore’s first and only property awards selected by consumers. Now in our third year, we received a record number of votes, demonstrating consumer interest in and appreciation of standout properties,” said Mr Sean Tan, General Manager of iProperty.com Singapore.
“The book ‘Successful Strategies: The Art of Effective Real Estate Marketing in Singapore’ has been written to serve overseas developers looking for property success in Singapore. It will help them to understand the national property context, enabling better engagement with Singapore investors. With Singaporeans showing strong interest in overseas markets, including Australia, the United Kingdom, Thailand and Japan, the Singapore buyer is a critical audience to understand and communicate with,” concluded Mr Tan.
