Tiny hotels eye expansion amid high demand, growing Singapore’s eco-tourism market

Tiny hotels such as repurposed shipping containers or compact modular cabins could soon be a more common sight in Singapore, according to a CNA report.

Hoteliers in the space are looking to grow the novel ‘tiny living’ hospitality experience, spurred on by high occupancy rates and a growing market for eco-tourism.

Analysts said that these hotel concepts are cheaper to build and operate amid a high business cost environment, and also more sustainable as they use fewer and more eco-friendly resources.

John McGrath – Australian millennial investors go it alone in property

Millennials have become the most active generation of investors with about one in three buying property on their own, using strategies such as rentvesting to begin their property ownership journey.

The Commonwealth Bank says 46 percent of its new property investor customers last year were Millennials, who were born between 1981 and 1996. The next biggest generation of investors were Gen Xers, born between 1965 to 1980, who accounted for 37 percent of investment purchases.

Rentvesting is one of many great examples John McGrath has seen of younger generations adapting to the inevitable affordability challenges of a consistently rising property market like Australia’s. McGrath says in The Real Estate Conversation he is impressed to see people in their 30s and early 40s making up such a big proportion of CommBank’s new investor clientele last year.
