The Knight Frank report even showcase two significant industry that dominate financier interest– workplace properties in Seoul in addition to multi-family properties.
Singapore’s commercial real estate market expanded 462% on a quarterly basis in 4Q2023, clocking in US$ 4.1 billion ($ 5.5 billion) in transactions.

Regardless of difficulties such as tight revenue spreads and high credit prices, the Federal Reserve kept steady interest rates in the January 2024 conference while advising against a rate trimmed in March. Our outlook prepares for price reductions to occur after mid-year 2024, which is most likely to coincide with a more energetic investment industry.”
