The housing sector, including sharia housing, has been affected by Covid-19. Many studies have analyzed the impact of Covid-19 on the sharia housing industry, but research focusing on non-bank financing is still limited.
This study aims to analyze how consumer purchasing decisions for housing during Covid-19 are influenced by price and digital marketing.
This study can be categorized as quantitative study by collecting data from 500 consumers selected through purposive sampling in the Bandar Lampung City. The obtained data was then analyzed using SmartPLS software.
The result shows that price and digital marketing have significant impact on consumers’ purchase decision of non-bank Sharia housing during Covid-19.
Sharia housing developers should effectively utilize digital marketing content and pricing strategy to attract potential consumers in Bandar Lampung City.
This study highlights unique pricing and digital marketing strategies by Sharia housing developers during Covid-19. This study is also unique for its approach to non-bank Sharia housing as mode of financing.
