Colliers Research Singapore - Investment Sales Quarterly Report Q3 2020 - Regaining Investment Momentum

Investors should turn their focus on assets with long-term growth drivers, such as high-spec industrial spaces and CBD office buildings with income or redevelopment potential.

Report highlights:

  • Overall real estate investment sales in Singapore trebled quarter-on-quarter (QOQ) and doubled year-on-year (YOY) to S$14.4 billion (US$10.9 billion) in Q4 2020, mainly on a REIT merger.

  • Residential investment sales in Q4 jumped 92.6% QOQ and 94.2% YOY, largely due to the revival of public and private land sales, including two collective sales.
  • CapitaLand Mall Trust (CMT) acquires CapitaLand Commercial Trust (CCT')'s six office and two mixed-use developments on their merger, which played a part in the surging of commercial investment sales in Q4, at 228% QOQ and 509% YOT to S$8.69 (US$6.57) billion.
  • Industrial investments sales in Q4 saw a decline of 9.3% QOQ and 82.1% YOY, due to ESR REIT's proposed merger with Sabana REIT falling through.


With more tech companies setting up hubs and a global economic recovery, investment sales volumes are looking to pick up further in 2021, as Singapore continues to remain a favourable investment destination.

She has since accumulated a wealth of experience in selling buildings, hotels and development land. She sold her first office building at 20 Malacca Street at Raffles Place – just barely one year into her new role. That same relentlessness saw her through many more deals, some bigger, others smaller. Over the years, she has developed an excellent network and invested in strong relationships.

She often gets the question, "What drives you?", which she usually answers, "the inexplicable joy I see on my clients' face when I close a deal!" By building trusted relationships, she has successfully entered into joint ventures with both CapitaLand and City Developments Limited (CDL), during her stint on the buy-side with Wells Fargo (then Wachovia Real Estate).
