PropertyGuru is accepting nominations for outstanding property companies and real estate projects for the 12th PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Singapore). Eighty-one award categories are open for local and transnational developers.
Eligible companies can submit their entries and nominations at https://www.asiapropertyawards.com/ until the August 19 deadline.
New categories have been added to the awards this year, including Best Transnational Developer, open to companies with developments outside Singapore, as well as Best Luxury Developer.
Meanwhile, new titles will also be given to eligible residential projects in Singapore for Best Premium Condo Development, Best Waterfront Condo Development, Best Lifestyle Development, Best Wellness Condo Development, and Best Nature-Integrated Condo Development.
“Singaporean developers have kept the real estate industry dynamic even in these unprecedented times,” says Dr. Tan Tee Khoon, Country Manager, PropertyGuru.com.sg.
“I hope that these companies will continue their innovations and push forward their projects with world-class concepts and design across all asset segments, and that they will remain committed to sustainability, green building and ESG (Environment, Social, Governance),” he adds.
The Awards returns to Singapore at a time when property seekers in the city-state cope with shifts brought by the new normal and look to a better future, according to findings by the H1 2022 PropertyGuru Consumer Sentiment Study (CSS).
The study recorded an uptick in the overall Sentiment Index—a measure of current real estate satisfaction and overall climate, housing affordability, interest rates, perceived government efforts, and property prices by PropertyGuru.com.sg, Singapore’s No. 1 property marketplace.
This uptick was driven by Singaporeans’ positive outlook on future property prices, more reasonable perception of home loan interest rates, and better-perceived government efforts to make housing more affordable.
According to Jules Kay, General Manager, PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards & Events, “The number of quality developments, designs and development companies has grown every year and many of them have been instrumental in driving that growth.
“Singapore properties and developers always feature highly in the list of the Best in Asia. It’s clear that as leaders in this field, they have set a standard in Singapore for others to follow. The PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Singapore) look forward to recognising their achievements this year and in the years to come.”
