Exceptional Homes – Mediacorp and PropertyGuru break ground for Singapore’s largest luxury virtual real estate event

Inaugural content collaboration will cater to robust consumer demand for upscale private property

Singapore, 25 October 2021 – The upcoming ‘Exceptional Homes’, presented by CNA Luxury and PropertyGuru, is poised to be the nation’s largest luxury virtual real estate event offering the latest launched private property projects for sale through an immersive digital experience. As the real estate industry evolves to meet keen market interest in high-end property investments, Exceptional Homes will bring exclusive, by-invite webinars and virtual viewings of premium show flats to potential buyers.

Exceptional Homes also marks the first partnership between Singapore’s national media network and largest content creator Mediacorp and Singapore’s number one property marketplace PropertyGuru. This alliance is aligned with both companies’ commitment to provide innovative solutions as more property buyers move online. 

As the host marketplace, PropertyGuru will showcase selected developments via virtual tours while bringing together a network of industry experts offering insider tips and insights on luxury real estate trends through a combination of exclusive and open access webinars. Meanwhile, Mediacorp will amplify public awareness through content on CNA Luxury and publicity across its extensive multiplatform network.

With one in three millennials in Singapore seeking to purchase luxury properties as dependable long-term investments [1], Exceptional Homes has been curated to engage two broad groups of prospective property buyers: an exclusive circle of attendees seeking to expand their portfolios in the luxury real estate market, and property seekers aspiring to educate themselves on procuring high-end properties in the near future. 

Exceptional Homes will run from 20 to 28 November with the following highlights:

•    An expansive network of industry frontrunners and speakers will helm a series of daily live webinars, panel discussions and presentations from 20 to 28 November. 
•    Attendees can look forward to networking via a virtual lounge and engaging in a wide range of topics, including the luxury property outlook and market dynamics, strategies for high-end property financing, the long-term value of sustainable homes and fine furnishing advice for one’s dream abode.
•    Property hunters can sign up for guided virtual tours of spotlighted developments. Daily live engagement sessions will be available on weekdays, with always-on online support from PropertyGuru and partners across the nine days of the event.
•    Exclusive, by-invite virtual engagement sessions will be extended to a select circle of attendees, followed by seamless concierge registration. Other attendees can also gain access to these sessions on-demand post-event.
•    For holistic engagement, the Exceptional Homes universe will also include dedicated feature stories delving into the luxury real estate market to run on both CNA Luxury and PropertyGuru.com.sg.

“Mediacorp is pleased to mark our first foray into the luxury real estate market with PropertyGuru, as we build on our proven track record in offering innovative content solutions to meet evolving consumer demands. By leveraging the strength of CNA Luxury’s content as well as the wide reach of our omnichannel network, Mediacorp will raise public awareness of the event and offer our partner unprecedented access to a broad base of aspiring and prospective high-net-worth property buyers. We look forward to working with PropertyGuru to empower consumers to make informed decisions on their luxury property investments, while driving digitalisation in the real estate ecosystem as a whole,” said Parminder Singh, Chief Commercial and Digital Officer, Mediacorp.

“We are excited to bring together Exceptional Homes, a bespoke luxury virtual property event for Singapore home buyers in partnership with Mediacorp,” said Jeremy Williams, Chief Business Officer, PropertyGuru Group. “With PropertyGuru’s digital expertise having curated immersive virtual property shows since last year and property market insights combined with Mediacorp’s extensive media network, Exceptional Homes will serve as a platform to help consumers make informed, smarter decisions.
