While things have grown quieter in Hong Kong’s normally buzzing real estate market, CBRE scored a win with the combined HK$916 million ($117 million) sale of two luxury houses overlooking Tai Tam Bay, one of which sold for over $HK100,000 per square foot, breaking the record for the area.
Singapore last month saw a pair of mega deals, with the Duo Tower and 71 Robinson Road being sold for a combined S$2.3 billion, however, so far in August things have been quieter, with Colliers International making some of the biggest noise as it gets the nod to broker a collective sale which could bring in as much as S$2 billion.
On the mainland, while major investment transactions slowed down, CBRE, JLL, Savills and Cushman and Wakefield all notched new appointments.
