SYDNEY (REUTERS) - Australia is expected to remain the most active property investment market in Asia Pacific for the rest of the year as offshore investors seek quality assets in a mature market with growth prospects, property services firm CB Richard Ellis said. Sales activity could also pick up after some listed Australian property trusts including Stockland and GPT unveiled plans to sell their assets to fund share buybacks or seek other opportunities. There are more than A$10 billion (S$13 billion) of commercial property assets currently on the market, according to the Australian Financial Review.
