ERA closes 42% of July new home sales, explores franchising deals in Asia Pacific

SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - ERA Realty Network agents closed about 499 new private residential sales in the month of July, which translates to about 42% of the developers’ total of 1,178 new homes sales that month, says Jack Chua, CEO of ERA.
“The demand (for new launches) is still very healthy and we saw transactions picking up m-o-m in July, which was quite remarkable,” he adds. While individual projects could see fewer units sold at launch as a percentage of the total units, he expects new launches to continue performing strongly.
Some of the new projects where ERA is a marketing agent include Avenue South Residence, Parc Clematis, Uptown @ Farrer, The Atelier, RoyalGreen, Van Holland, Neu At Novena, The Antares, Meyer Mansion, Verdale, and Luxus Hills.

This is one way we can help them, by cutting the big data into bite-sized chunks to help them source for prospective buyers.”
