INVESTMENT MARKET REMAINS ACTIVE BUT EXTERNAL FACTORS CONTINUE TO CLOUD SHORT-TERM OUTLOOK

Buying momentum in key real estate investment markets in Asia Pacific remained strong in Q3 2012. Although investment turnover declined by 4.1% q-o-q to around US$18.7 billion this figure was still 21% above the three-year quarterly average. Worries over the Eurozone debt crisis took a back seat to concerns over the regional impact of the China economic slowdown and investors consequently retained a certain degree of caution. The sub-US$250 million market segment saw continued growth, posting a 17% increase q-o-q.

Investment flows remained strong in major markets including Hong Kong, Singapore and Japan, although transaction volume declined slightly on a q-o-q basis. Activity picked up significantly in South Korea and Taiwan Whilst Australia and New Zealand also witnessed increased activity. India and China both recorded a relatively quiet quarter.
