We round off the week by sharing some industry view points on key real estate markets for 2020. Overall sentiments remain positive but cautious. Uncertainty in UK seems to have abated with the recent elections and a clearer path to Brexit has emerged. Institutional Investors continue to be overweight in Australia, particular in the logistics and office sector.
The US real estate market is expected to be resilient with strong capital flows and further rate cuts. According to Bloomberg’s recent data, investors are already pricing in a 60% chance of another interest-rate cut this year by the Fed. Investors should not focus on significant capital value appreciation but start exploring defensive portfolios with steady yields.
