•    The residential market remains challenging. More high-end residential units are unsold than are sold, and prices have experienced a precipitous decline. A realistic approach to the market on behalf of developers and the long-anticipated release of the explicatory rules for the Condominium Law may herald future market growth.
•    There have been more real estate Myanmar Investment Commission FDI approvals in the 2017-18 fiscal year from April to the end of December than in any other full year since the commission began keeping track. While the data is for approvals figures, it is a testament to the long-term interest in the market by foreign players.
•    A few residential projects completed in H2 2017, but no brand-new projects launched sales, as consumers continue to digest the units that are available on the market. Several developments started construction after long periods of inactivity and have re-launched sales.
•   Signs of a developing mortgage market are on display. While specialist lenders are still small, a number of commercial banks have struck deals with well-known developers to provide financing to unit buyers. Nonetheless, the market is in its infancy and there is much room for growth.
•    Office prices are rapidly declining, as a significant amount of new stock recently launched in the market, while the number of potential tenants has not kept up. The excess stock may also adversely impact the serviced office market.
•    High-end retail stock remains limited in Yangon, though supply is set to nearly double in 2018. Although prices may become relatively more competitive in the near-term, strong demand for international standard retail space in Yangon bodes well for the market moving forward.
