The spread of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) has left no corner of daily life untouched. Millions of people are working from home, thousands of our community members are infected with the virus, our children are adjusting to home-based learning, and once customary gatherings and personal interactions are no longer considered safe.
Right now, travel bans, job losses, social distancing, and unfortunate biases have triggered homelessness in the short-term for many in Southeast Asia. We are canvassing support to help people whose lives have been disrupted by COVID-19.
PropertyGuru has also introduced dedicated content hubs in Singapore, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia and to help current homeowners and home seekers confidently navigate the property market in these rapidly evolving times. Our evidence-based insights are updated frequently, so leverage them to make confident property decisions.
To help our agent, developer and financial institution partners tide through this period, we have rolled out a raft of support measures such as reducing prices, providing validity extensions on products, launching innovative tech to help them bring the property viewing experience right to a home seeker’s fingertips, introducing added income streams, as well as providing free access to critical resources.
As an industry expert, we have also reached out to a number of organisations to offer our assistance. We have started working with several organisations in Singapore to help their employees assess how much money they can save through refinancing their homes, via our PropertyGuru Finance product.
We continue to monitor the situation and are prepared to evolve our solutions and guidance as needed.
Taking guidance from local government and healthcare authorities, all PropertyGuru Group employees in the region have been enabled with resources to work from home.
To help them accommodate challenges around home-based schooling, childcare, elder care and other such needs, we’ve also implemented flexible work schedules.
Meanwhile, we continue to scout for the best talent and welcome future employees. If you are ready to make a real difference with us, apply for available positions at [email protected].
