What does this mean for our property market?

Craig Pontey Director at Ray White Double Bay saysInvestors have begun to focus on hospitality assets, with demand for quality property having increased strongly over the past year. The demand has come from both domestic and international investors. Recently, the Hilton Hotel in Sydney was sold to Chinese investment house Bright Ruby for $442 million. Double Bay is also in the midst of a resurgence, with retail and accommodation being boosted by the major Woolworths and Intercontinental Hotel re-developments”.
