PropNex, Singapore’s largest listed real estate agency, has reported earnings of $31.2 million for FY2020, up 47.8% y-o-y. Revenue in the same period was up 22.8% to $515.6 million, with a bigger volume of transactions handled for both private and public housing eve amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

“The various cooling measures introduced had effectively reduced speculators in the real estate market.

Meanwhile, HDB resale prices rose by 5%, thereby underpinning the overall resilience of the real estate market in Singapore.”
