According to market research released yesterday by consulting firm C9 Hotelworks, resales highlighted the sector, bolstered by Asian wealth, which is leading the global storyboard.

Managing director Bill Barnett said a growing appetite by the rich and famous to “supersize” saw Natai’s Beyond Villa trade for a reported $24 million. “The profound ‘failure to launch’ during the past 24 months by developers has resulted in a reduced inventory of 77 new properties with a mar?ket value of $329 million,” he said.
