“Interest in shophouses is likely to stay robust in 2023. It is an attractive asset class for wealth preservation and is popular among Ultra-High-Net-Worth Individuals and family offices,” the report read in part. 

“However, the available supply of shophouses for sale in 2023 is not as high compared to 2022. With the resumption of travel from China, demand is expected to pick up in the coming months. Hence prices and rents are likely to trend upwards in 2023.”
