The Changing Landscape of Strata Title Residential Real Estate Management In Singapore

The need of this research is to address the changing landscape of Strata Title residential real estate market in Singapore which has cast a burden on the Strata Manager in carrying out work efficiently. Trends such as globalisation, technological progress, sustainability, social factors and urbanisation have always been one or some of the focus of research on the impact on real estate markets. Besides analysing the real estate markets from the mentioned angles, it would be equally important to analyse from the related service providers’ perspective. In this case, the Strata Manager/ Managing Agent is an important player in strata title residential real estate management. This study intends to find answers to identify occupiers’ perceptions of a well-maintained building; expectations of occupiers; factors that influence the maintenance status of a building and factors that will make an effective Managing Agent. The proposed research would have an impact on the strata-title properties and the maintainability aspects of buildings, especially in Singapore. At the end of the research, the shortfalls identified in the strata title management could be extracted for practitioners and related bodies to work on and improve them so as to enhance the industry professionalism.
