Investment sales in 3Q2017 amounted to $10.1 billion, a 9.3% q-o-q increase, says a recent CBRE Research report.
The strong performance of the investment market in 3Q2017 was attributed to the collective sale market, the return of domestic capital — which rose 52.8% y-o-y and accounted for 67.6% of total investment sales — and larger-ticket deals.
The largest deals for the residential and office sectors so far this year were transacted in the quarter. Tampines Court, which was sold to Sim Lian Development at $970 million, were the largest residential deal YTD. On the office front, CapitaLand Commercial Trust’s acquisition of Asia Square Tower 2 at $2.1 billion was the largest deal so far this year.
