Office market to cool further in next 12 months: report

This could lead to a “greater re-pricing,” JLL said. 

Singapore’s office market is expected to cool further in the next 12 months, JLL said in a January report. 

Citing the forecasted limited impetus for rent growth, JLL said the office investment assets may be placed under a “greater re-pricing pressure” as interest rates are expected to stay elevated.

 “With interest rates climbing further and investors staying on the sidelines in 4Q22, CBD investment grade office capital values fell for the first time since turning around in 2Q21,” JLL said.
