Andy Chia Jin Tai, Associate Division Director at ERA Realty Network, added that Singapore is a safe haven and our residential properties will generally appreciate in the long term.
Chia said: "Singapore have not established vaccinated travel lanes (VTL) with China, Malaysia and Indonesia who were among the top foreign buyers of Singapore residential properties."
