? I get it, but why should I care?

From the perspective of an investor

Since the global real estate investment market saw a year-on-year rise of over 4%, the APAC region continues to remain a viable investment target for the global capital region. Since the region offers a development background that is very diverse, it allows the investors to focus side-by-side to secondary and tertiary markets which will allow them to set a better stage for core strategies.

From a global perspective, New York (USD 51 billion) remained the top city in the survey followed by Los Angeles (USD 39  billion) and San Francisco (USD 32 billion). In Asia, Hong Kong (global rank of 8) received the highest volume of investment at USD 18.4 billion.
