are known for their quality, innovation, lush landscaping and liveability. We
look forward to giving visitors of the 3D Virtual Property Expo a closer look
and a deeper understanding of our projects, as well as what they offer in terms

Singapore, the average home buyer spends at least six months viewing property
listings before making a purchasing decision. For each new build listing, home
buyers typically spend time painstakingly visiting a showroom, before visiting
the property’s location to assess the neighbourhood. With this time-consuming
process already engrained in consumers’ search behaviour prior to COVID-19, the
3D Virtual Property Expo aims to transform the traditional concept of showrooms
and eliminate common house-hunting inconveniences.


“Home buyers
care a great deal about the neighbourhood and nearby amenities, often asking
about nearby supermarkets and schools, while carefully assessing transportation
links. Environmental considerations are also important, with buyers commonly
thinking about which direction the property faces and the proximity to roads,
highways and other sources of noise,” said Gerald Sim, Co-founder and Chief
Executive Officer, The 3D Virtual Property Expo will allow buyers to
see and assess these factors first-hand via detailed 3D maps, without having to
travel to multiple spots across Singapore. This will make the process of buying
or renting a property smoother, much more convenient, and should remove some
friction in the transaction that we have all become accustomed to.”


first-of-its-kind 3D viewing capabilities for local properties was enabled
using’s geospatial technology expertise and proprietary machine
learning algorithms, combined with the application programming interfaces
(APIs) and geospatial data from OneMap3D Beta — an open-source 3D platform
announced by SLA on 17 September 2020.


“As an early
user of OneMap3D Beta, we see the platform’s potential for delivering immersive
3D experiences, not just for viewing new homes but entire neighbourhoods as
well,” Sim continued. “We would like to thank SLA for giving us the opportunity
to showcase OneMap3D Beta at our event.”
