Unfortunately, it looks as though the coronavirus and its numerous mutations will be with us for many months to come. We can argue the origins of the coronavirus but it does seems to have originated from the Far East with China mentioned as the main suspect. Putting that to one side, how will Asian real estate perform going forward? Has the coronavirus pandemic dealt a bitter blow to the confidence of property investors looking to Asia? Alternatively, is now an opportune moment to increase your Asian real estate exposure?

It effects directly on all sectors of the market like real estate also. In the commercial property market, the best 10 urban communities in the Asia-Pacific locale all endured twofold digit year-on-year decreases in exchange volumes, as per property specialist Real investment Analytics. But now, it seems normal as from the past few months. Now, Investors can invest their money in Real estate for making passive income.

Is there not a potential issue with confidence going forward? The fact that the coronavirus originated from China (the best guess by scientists) does not give confidence in the region. Or will it simply be brushed under the carpet when the coronavirus pandemic is under control and we return to some kind of normality?

It should bounce back fairly quickly as real estate markets, and investors, are very quick to adapt to changing scenarios - whether short, medium or longer term. Life goes on!

I don't think that COVID potentially originating from China will have much of an effect. Most people already have their opinion about China, one way or another.
Also, Asia is a pretty big area with diverse options, so I think it will still hold many possibilities.

Agree, but no other origin seems suspected in this regard except China.

Post pandemic I've heard that Hong Kong, for example, is a great place to put your money. The legal system is stable, the quality of life is high, and the local economy, and thus rental demand, is strong. However, with one of the world's most expensive real estate markets, this destination may be out of reach even for the average millionaire. From what I have read, this is also true in Singapore post-pandemic. As another modern city with a transparent real estate market and a strong economy. However, because of the higher prices, average returns are only 4%.

In my opinion post-pandemic, Hong Kong and Singapore are excellent choices for those looking to store their wealth, but they may not be appropriate for the average investor who does not have millions to spend or is looking for a more aggressive strategy.
