Commercial conservation shophouses in prime central locations are highly sought after by investors, as the properties are tightly held and rarely available for sale, says Ian Loh, head of investment and capital markets at Knight Frank. The assets also provide immediate rental income and potential strong reversionary rental, he adds.
The sale is open to locals and foreigners, with no additional buyer’s stamp duty or seller’s stamp duty imposed. The shophouses are offered in an expression of interest exercise that closes on Nov 13.
