HOME-BUYERS can now have easy access to property market information on the go from their iPhones and iPads.
The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) yesterday launched its new and free 'Property Market Information, Singapore' application as part of its efforts to enhance the transparency of the property market.
The new app allows interested parties to have easy access to transaction prices and rentals for different private housing projects by project name, street name, and district.
Users can also see the prices of all private residential units transacted in a particular area or within a certain radius of a showflat on a map.
'This new service will empower home-buyers with accurate and comprehensive information on private housing projects and encourage them to look at all available market information before making a purchase decision,' URA said.
'Home-buyers and those looking to rent a private residential property can compare and consider carefully prices and rentals across different properties before making a commitment.'
The app is now available for download from Apple's App Store. URA also plans to make the app available on Android phones in the fourth quarter of this year.
URA has also enhanced the property market information eServices on its website to provide more information and greater convenience to users, it said.
Among other things, key features of the enhanced eServices include a new map-based search function and viewing of data, and new functions for plotting graphs with property data.
