"There is a fair bit of latent demand in the market and is expected to build up in the coming months," OrangeTee & Tie head of research and consultancy Christine Sun said. "If sales volume remains thin, some genuine sellers may start reducing their asking prices and this could present good buying opportunity for long-term investors."
