The Movement Control Order (MCO) in Malaysia was recently extended to June 9th. Since the MCO started, property developers have suffered as safe distancing measures prevent homebuyers from visiting viewing galleries or consulting with agents.

Good thing is, property developers can turn to digitalisation during such challenging times.

Property Developers Ride Digitalisation Wave

Property developers have secured bookings worth RM37 million in April purely through digital platforms such as websites and mobile apps during the MCO period. Client consultation between buyers and housing agents were converted to online meetings. Virtual reality (VR) was also introduced to buyers to provide an immersive tour of property launches.

Change in Perspective Among Buyers

Some companies have adopted VR years ago, but this technology failed to take off as it did not resonate with buyers, who prefer face-to-face interaction.

However, since the MCO period, buyers have become increasingly receptive to technological alternatives that will supplement their home purchase transactions.

With these two-way changes between buyers and property developers, the property market could emerge from its slow slump through digitalisation.
