Risk aversion, however, is strengthening due to heightened external market volatilities, according to RCA. This aversion is particularly strong for investors that are targeting core and core-plus assets with secured long-term income, the research firm said.
RCA said there is limited pressure on real estate owners to divest as long as the cost of borrowing remains low and occupier markets stable, and "current pricing remains aggressive and at historic highs".
“As a result buyers struggle to find suitably priced assets that fit their investment strategy. The stand-off is inhibiting investments and slowing market activity.” Petra Blazkova, director of RCA Asia Pacific.
