As the world and our nation seeks to combat COVID19, SRI battles alongside with you. We seek to be socially responsible amidst the uncertainty and hope to still do as much as possible for our community. Recently we have distributed over 1,000 packs of COVID19 prevention packs to the less privilege families around our office areas, and we hope to be able to do more.
In view of doing things differently, we have long been embracing technology for fundamental and technical trainings and as such disruption on our operations will be minimum.
We are confident of our local real estate market as the fundamentals supports both the rental and sale volumes. Unfortunately viewings will definitely be disrupted as we combat xenophobia as well as genuine fear for safety. We conduct checks to ensure our viewers profile and contact tracing profile is safe before our clients get to view your apartment with your consent. Also, if that isn’t an option, we could always do a 360 virtual/video tour so we could show the property’s potential before any commitment.
Our consumer seminars will continue in live streaming mode where you can tune in from anywhere at the comfort of your space to understand on price actions and investors behaviour by our Managing Partner Ken Low.
We are also trained to engage you in case you would require any attention to your property needs be it purchase, sale or rental requirements via video conferencing tools available so you would have a peace of mind.
Let us know any real estate advisory is needed and trust that we will ride this through this interesting times together.
