The top three markets of Australia, Singapore and Japan accounted for 83% of the total investment volume of the 15 countries surveyed.
The majority of investors are still chasing prime opportunities across all market segments. The scarcity of core investment opportunities in Hong Kong, Bangkok and Seoul has led to very few transactions across our study area in the reviewed quarter.
The prime yield differential between core and secondary markets has started to narrow, mainly led by yield compression in Singapore and Tokyo. The average yield in our area is between 3.5% and 4.5% for prime hotels, and between 7.0% and 9.0% for prime resort hotels.
