By area, Huttons said The Rochor planning area which encompasses Little India and Jalan Besar was the most popular amongst investors.

"Many investors have shifted their focus to Joo Chiat / Kampong Glam / Jalan Besar area, to find more reasonable price shophouses to enhance the tenant mix & rental return," Huttons said.
