In this paper, our Colliers experts examine the economic implications of COVID-19 on the real estate investment markets of Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore, and discuss how investors can take advantage of opportunities and achieve future returns.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought much of the world and many of the key gateway markets in Asia that we discuss in this paper, to a near standstill. It has been an almost domino effect, where the health crisis has led to an economic and financial crisis. However, out of crisis can emerge new and interesting opportunities, as can be seen in the GDP forecast for 2020 and 2021, with China and Hong Kong, in particular indicatively forecasting the widest jump of over 700 bps – a clear indication of economic growth potential and the opportunities that will come with it.
