Asia Pacific ViewPoint - Investors Should Take Heed of Emerging Occupier Trends August 2017
CBRE Research’s 2017 Asia Pacific Investor Intentions Survey published earlier this year found that investors are increasingly motivated by yield spread rather than capital appreciation. Investors are also demonstrating a stronger willingness to engage in core-plus, value-added and opportunistic investments.
Against this backdrop, gaining a thorough understanding of occupier behaviour has become a critical component of formulating a successful investment strategy.
CBRE Research has identified a number of emerging occupier trends that investors should be cognisant of. These include a stronger emphasis on the employee experience; the rapid growth of the tech sector; and the proliferation of co-working centres.
This ViewPoint explains how investors and landlords can take advantage of these emerging occupier trends and use them to guide their investment decisions and unlock hidden property value.
