Others Describe, We Analyze

Our "Analytical Track Record"

A) Items currently available

1) Real estate analyses: We publish from time to time reports in English and / or Chinese for a target audience or the public at large. These reports may be focused on specific markets or segments of a market, or they may be related to a technical topic. These should be useful for real estate developers, builders, investors, fund managers, bankers, property owners, corporate occupiers, multinationals, civic organizations, professional groups, and the like. Calculative methods involved if any may also range from simple arithmetic to sophisticated quantitative modeling [Click the following free samples]

a) SIMPLE STUDY SERIES: we have created and developed a series of simple studies dealing with specific real estate themes or monitoring market trends with a view to seek where feasible insights and angles which may have been missed by the general market AND / OR to challenge doubtful yet popular real estate notions. Statistical applications and numeric analyses are used where practicable

Executive Summary: it appears that from a macro angle, investment diversification among the various major commercial real estate sectors, namely residential (apartment), office, retail, and industrial, may not help to reduce risk much, whether in terms of price, demand, supply, or return. [12 pages, US$25.00]

Executive Summary: Former residential real estate shining stars (projects or complexes) may become today・s dogs and likewise, today・s shining stars may also turn into dogs in future. Relying on past status and glory is unlikely to be a very reliable method. [8 pages, US$25.00]

  • Simple Study Series-SSS0003-Hong Kong Private Residential Real Estate: Larger Beats Smaller 3Q 2006

    Executive Summary: based on data and information published by the Hong Kong SAR Government and related to the period from 1994 to 2005, it appears that investors interested in the Hong Kong private residential real estate market may face less (than average) risk via investing in the larger floor size residential units (category C to E) than investing in the smaller floor size ones (category A to B), despite the new supply of such larger units may seem erratic at times. [13 pages, US$25.00]

  • Simple Study Series-SSS0004-China: Urbanization & GDP 3Q 2006

    Executive Summary: based on data and information published by the United Nations, it appears that .some・ correlation exists between urbanization, expressed in percentage of urban population, and GDP, expressed in GDP US$ per capita on a purchasing power parity basis, i.e. the degree of urbanization and the status of GDP per capita appear to .somewhat・ synchronized. [15 pages, US$25.00]
