Lynnette Abad, the Director of Data and Research, Property Finder, said: "In H2 2019, we started to see an upward shift in sales transactions with multiple record breaking months in regards to sales volumes. This trend continued into Q1 2020, with transaction volumes increasing month-on-month."
"During the current situation, we have obviously seen a slow down in transactions, however due to the governments proactive, swift, extreme efforts and policies I believe we will get through this tough period quicker than most and the real estate market will start to transact again and will continue the trend where it left off in Q1," added Abad.-TradeArabia News Service
