The circuit breaker has affected how people go about their daily lives, from the most mundane of activities to big life decisions.

Like getting married, or buying a new house.

Some may find it difficult to make decisions regarding buying a new house during this time, given that they cannot view the property.

Not for one buyer in Singapore, though, who reportedly purchased a house in Opera Estate without viewing it.

S$2.2 million house

According to EdgeProp Singapore, an inter-terraced house on Dido Street was recently sold for S$2.2 million.

EdgeProp reported that the new owner is a local who was unable to view the property due to circuit breaker measures that started on Apr. 7.

Instead, the buyer decided to buy the house after only looking at pictures of the house provided by the auction team.

The house, which is in District 15, had been put up for auction earlier this year.

At that time, the house had a guide price of about S$2.6 million.

According to Property Guru, the property at 76 Dido Street is 2,286 square feet.

It has four bedrooms and is unfurnished.

On the listing, it is stated that the owner is no longer accepting sales queries at the moment.

Stories about other houses

In April, a British man in Singapore rented a swimming pool in a Sentosa Cove bungalow for S$10,000 each month.

This was after he could no longer swim in his condominium pool due to tightened circuit breaker measures.
