HOW TO REACH MORE BUYERS
Treasure at Tampines is a 99-year leasehold (starting from 29 Nov 2018) condominium located at Tampines Street 11 in District 18. The development is built on the site of former Tampines Court, a privatised HUDC development with 560 units. Sim Lian Group later acquired Tampines Court in an en bloc sale in August 2018. Expected to be completed in 2023, the development is a brand new condo project of homegrown developer Sim Lian Group.
The development will appeal to families and upgraders, especially those who already live in Tampines or the east of Singapore. The profusion of amenities and businesses in the surrounding area means this is one of the most exciting and communal places to live in Singapore, and Treasure at Tampines will really be at the heart of it. Unsurprisingly, the units have been selling well. There really is no other way to look at this development other than a fantastic investment opportunity, or an equally fantastic place to call home.

To use real estate ads, we create ads with an engaging uploaded catalog of property listings into Facebook Ads Manager. The real estate ads worked with the Facebook pixel—a snippet of code advertisers can add to their web pages to import website activity into Ads Manager—that Treasures had installed on its property listing pages. In this way, the real estate ads can display local properties to people who had previously looked at properties on the site.
House hunters can filter on attributes like property type, monthly rent, square footage and number of bedrooms. If they see a property they’re interested in, they simply share their contact information and include an optional message, all without leaving Facebook, while they continue to browse more homes.
This tends to be a better experience for people who're looking for homes, because they see all available options, and are connected immediately to the agent handling the property.
