The 8th PropertyGuru Cambodia Property Awards seek the Gold Standard of real estate amid recovering domestic market

Local property seekers in Cambodia power the demand for spacious homes

PropertyGuru Group (NYSE: PGRU), Southeast Asia’s leading property technology company, today launched the 2023 edition of the PropertyGuru Cambodia Property Awards, beginning the search anew for the kingdom’s finest property developers, design practices, and projects: the Gold Standard of real estate.

The launch of the 8th PropertyGuru Cambodia Property Awards 2023 comes as residential property demand shifts from overseas to local buyers with high purchasing power.

Sorn Seap, chairperson of the independent panel of judges of the Awards in Cambodia, and president of the Cambodian Valuers and Estate Agents Association (CVEA), said: “The market is now heavily dependent on local demand so matching the development of new projects to the needs of local buyers is a wise decision. Not only is there a strong residential demand by local buyers, but they also prefer owning homes in boreys since they still desire landed property with gardens, easy parking lots, and high privacy.”
