Investors must hurry up.
According to IP Global’s latest Property Market Barometer , Jakarta, Mackay and Kuala Lumpur are the hot markets in the APAC region for HK property investors right now.
Jakarta’s property market is flourishing. Indonesia’s strong investment climate is due in part to the continued increase in its middle-class and affluent consumer population which is expected to reach 141 million by 2020. There is also strong growth in the luxury residential sector with current yields at 9.5%.
Mackay, Australia is a very promising market. Annual growth in house prices is now the highest in the Queensland region, and residents’ local income is now 27% higher than the rest of Australia. Also, its 2.2% projected population growth per annum provides stable support for housing demand.
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is still an excellent market for real estate investment. Excellent national growth in the face of an Asia-wide slowdown looks set to continue, with confident forecasts following the recent elections, while locally 2012 saw the city’s all price house index rise 8.3%.
Hong Kong also remains buoyant with strong local demand, and a 2.6% annual growth rate on year-to-date property prices, as well as a steady increase in transaction volumes.
Singapore and Hanoi are listed as less attractive investment cities as waning demand, record high supply and falling prices continue to make investors vigilant.
