It’s pretty amazing how long – and how quick – the months of the Circuit Breaker (CB) have passed. A few weeks ago, people were complaining that the isolation was driving them nuts; this week, having to wear pants to work and wake up on time to catch the bus is driving them nuts.

For those involved in real estate in Singapore, some may have been shocked by the recent figures posted from the last two months.

Why? Because the months of the circuit breaker saw a 75 per cent increase in new property sales between April and May (to be clear, April was at a real low), Ang Mo Kio saw its first million-dollar flat during the CB, and some foreign buyers spent $20 million on six Marina One units without so much as a quick viewing. Singapore property market prices have been rather resilient throughout.
