An increasing number of Singaporeans are looking to invest overseas with a notable number of sales concluded during the recent SMART Investment & International Property Expo.
With the property curbs imposed by the Singapore government since 2010 to ensure prices remain sustainable, overseas properties are proving to be increasingly popular among Singaporean investors. This year’s SMART Investment & Inter- national Property Expo held at SUNTEC Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre attracted an approxi- mately 7,000 strong crowd. Organisers said many sales were concluded by agents and developers who were promoting properties from Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines and Australia. Notable overseas projects that had booths at the exhibition included Ayana Residences in Bali, Horizon Hills and Bayou Creek in Nusajaya, Malaysia and The Houben in Krabi, Thailand.
