Want to know how easy it can be? We recently closed an entire transaction within one week. Here’s how it went down.

The flat

Beautifully renovated and immaculately maintained, this flat was sure to be snapped up quickly. Located right next to great amenities at Blk 6 Haig Road, this middle-floor corner unit is great for larger families with its 115 sqm of floor area.

The listing

The seller found TruBid online and was excited to see what our platform could do for them. Our tech team liaised with them on the photos and key information for the listing. All was completed smoothly, and the listing went live on Wednesday 12 August.

From there, the listing benefited from TruBid’s wide reach – with a total database of 30,000 users and followers.

The offer

With all the serious and motivated buyers on our platform, it didn’t take long for this listing to generate interest. An enquiry came in on the afternoon of Monday 17 August, and the potential buyer was keen to view the flat that very same day!


Our team swung into action with the necessary due diligence checks – finding out more about the buyer’s timeline and requirements, to ensure that the flat and the area are a good fit. We also help buyers with their intention to buy documentation, and ensure that they have loan approvals in place, so that the transaction goes quickly and smoothly.

A viewing appointment was set for 6pm that day, accompanied by a certified real estate agent from the TruBid team. The buyer felt really comfortable when entering the unit, and things progressed very rapidly from there. 2 hours later, they were prepared to make an offer. Our agent liaised with both buyer and seller, negotiated a price that both parties felt comfortable with, and the deal was sealed. The option to purchase was issued the next day, Tuesday 18 August – just 6 days after listing.

Ready to buy or sell a flat? Here are some tips to help your transaction go as smoothly as this one:

Tips for sellers

  • Photos make a huge difference. You want to show your flat in the best possible way, to attract more potential buyers. The most common issues we see among listing photos are poor lighting, and leaving clutter everywhere (especially the living room and bedroom). For best results, do a bit of clean up before taking photos, and choose a time when your flat gets lots of natural light.
  • Set the right price. Buyers will definitely compare prices, so do your research and price it in line with similar units. If you need help with this, feel free to consult our team!

Tips for buyers

  • Have all your paperwork ready, as this will make the process much smoother. Our professional team can help you with all the preparation – contact us at 81023987 to find out more.
  • Browse the wide range of listings on TruBid to get a sense of the market, as well as the different regions, property types, and price ranges. This will help you shortlist suitable flats for viewing and bidding.
