Donald Trump Jr. praises 'spirit of the Indian people,' looks forward to signing new deals

One key element distinguishes the world's largest democracy from other emerging markets, according to Donald Trump Jr., the American president's eldest son.

"Honestly for me, there's something about the spirit of the Indian people that's unique here to other parts of the emerging world," he told CNBC's Indian partner TV18 on Tuesday during a business trip to the country. "You go through a town, and I don't mean to be glib about it, but you can see the poorest of the poor and there's still a smile on a face."

"It's a different spirit that you don't see in other parts of the world where people walk around so solemn ... that spirit speaks to the future potential of what this country can do."

Trump Jr., who leads the Trump Organization conglomerate alongside brother Eric Trump, was in the Indian capital to review the company's property portfolio, according to TV18.

The 40 year-old, who said he's been coming to the South Asian state since his late 20s, said it was Trump Organization's largest international market outside the U.S. by number of projects.

"I have great confidence in the market," he said.

Trump said he intends to get back into Indian property and ink new deals once his father's term is done, noting that India has "no shortage of new business we could do."

President Donald Trump, who previously ran his family's namesake real-estate firm, has come under fire from ethics experts for failing to fully liquidate his global business holdings. That, critics say, represents a conflict of interest and gives the appearance of Trump profiting from the presidency.

Trump Jr. dismissed those claims on Tuesday, calling them "nonsense."

Expressing frustration about having to pause business development during his father's term, Trump Jr. described it as "an understandable opportunity cost," claiming his family didn't get credit for "for doing the right thing."

South Koreans are set to earn millions from renting out their homes during the Winter Olympics

With the Winter Olympics underway in South Korea, residents in the country's Gangwon province are set to earn more than $2 million from renting out their homes to visitors, according to Airbnb.

Gangwon is set to house more than 9,000 travelers in Airbnb-listed homes during the games, the short-term rentals company said at a press conference in Seoul last week. There were about 4,000 Airbnb listings in the province, the company added.

On average, people booked accommodation for three nights and paid about $170 a night, the firm said. The costliest listing on Airbnb's website, as of Feb.14, was more than $400 for a one-night stay in Gangwon province.

The median income for residents from renting out their homes during the games was predicted to be about $260, according to the firm. In total, hosts in Gangwon were set to earn about $2.1 million, Airbnb said.

The Winter Olympics end on Feb. 25, and most of the events are held in Pyeongchang, a county within the Gangwon province.

Airbnb said many of the travelers were arriving from other parts of South Korea, the United States, China, Canada and Japan.

During major sporting events, accommodation is usually a scarce commodity. Because of the excessive, temporary influx of visitors to host cities, hotels are able to charge a higher rate than usual. But the prevalence of vacation rental sites like Airbnb has widened the selection of accommodation options available to visitors.

Still, last year, reports said that the South Korean government cracked down on hotels attempting to charge travelers excessively.

Hotel-booking website Booking.com showed that as of Feb. 14, hotels in Gangwon province were charging from anywhere between $30 to more than $700 a night.

In recent years, Airbnb hosts have collectively made millions of dollars by renting out their homes to visitors during special events.

For example, during the recent Super Bowlweek, Airbnb said hosts in Minneapolis and Saint Paul earned about $3.7 million thanks to about 7,000 visitors.

Similarly, users in the Washington D.C.-area made nearly $6 million from renting out their homes to people who arrived to watch President Donald Trump's inauguration last year, the firm said.

During the Summer Olympics in 2016, Airbnb hosts in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, made more than $30 million in additional income from about 85,000 visitors, who paid on average $165 a night.

Middle East real estate tycoon warns of a rocky 2019 — but says region is ripe for investment

A mogul of Middle East real estate development, Emaar Properties Chairman Mohamed Alabbar, said that the region has plenty of development opportunities despite geopolitical tensions and difficulties doing business.

"If I was to look at the region as a whole I'm still positive," he told CNBC at the Milken Institute MENA Summit in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday. However, he cautioned investors to remain prudent in the longer term.

"I'm just careful about what is 2019. I'm just worried that we've been having a good time for too long. So I just hope that 2019 goes well … So make sure your balance sheet and debt level is at reasonable levels, so if there's a shake-up you can handle it," he said.

Emaar Properties is a real estate development company based in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) which is responsible for developments throughout the country and the wider Middle East, and beyond.

Founded in 1997, Emaar Properties has been responsible for much of the development of Dubai, including the iconic Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building. It has also developed shopping malls and residential property, hotels and entertainment venues.

The real estate firm also has developments further afield such as in India and Pakistan.

Speaking to CNBC, Alabbar summarized the outlook for the company.

"My view is that Morocco is doing well for us, I would say Egypt is doing extremely well; Saudi Arabia with all the restructuring going on, it's going to be a fabulous opportunity. In the UAE, we still expect to grow 20 percent on an annual basis," he said, noting that the company's growth in India was recovering and Pakistan was doing "reasonably well" for the firm.

Alabbar said the company had achieved around $5 billion of sales in 2017 and close to $1.8 billion of net profit with the company growing around 20 to 25 percent on an annual basis.

"Trust me, the margins, the opportunities and the growth I've been having in the Middle East over the last 20 years — even if you make a mistake, it's so worth it," he said, although he noted doing business in the wider Middle East had its challenges.

"Of course if I'm doing business in the UAE, it's comfortable, it's safe. But if I have to go to Cairo (in Egypt) I have to know the government, I have to know the mayor of Cairo, the mayor of Alexandria. But that's what we do, that's what we're paid for, that's what we have to do to grow our business," he said.

The Middle East is certainly not a region for the faint-hearted. There is ongoing geopolitical turbulence caused by the continuing conflict in Yemen, uncertainty in Syria and Iraq about the possible resurgence of terrorist group Islamic State and internal disputes within the Gulf Cooperation Council (with Qatar being sidelined by Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the UAE and Egypt), not to mention perceived proxy wars between Saudi Arabia and Iran.

Couple these issues with economic instability, prompted by the lower oil price, and there's a combustive mix for most businesses. Alabbar said it was nothing new, however, and that the region was ripe for real estate development and infrastructure investment.

"I think that what the Middle East is going through is, unfortunately, not new … But the truth is that the opportunities exist — there are millions of people who have to go to school, they have to shop, they have to find jobs and open new factories, there's tourism, so therefore that will contribute to economic growth in the whole region."

Asked about Emaar Properties' balance sheet, Alabbar said there had been difficult times.

"2007, 2008 and 2009 was very painful and I try not to forget the lesson. And I deal with bankers with a lot of respect but when they come and tell me 'your balance sheet is not very efficient' I know that I'm doing a good job. So I like to keep my debt at a very reasonable level. Then again, we have to do business, we have to be aggressive but at the same time we have to keep our eye on the cycle."

My 2018 'game plan' for real estate investing

When I bought my first duplex in 2003, I believed that real estate investing would reward a thoughtful, steady mindset. That hasn't changed, even after the market forces we've all lived through over the past decade. Today, my companies manage over 13,000 apartment units in 10 states, and it's taken a lot of patience (and some trial and error) to deliver consistent returns. At January's National Multifamily Housing Conference in Orlando, I had the chance to talk with hundreds of industry experts at all levels about outlook for 2018. My three takeaways:

The multifamily workforce sector is still a worthy investment. 2017 was a good year for multifamily housing, and the keyword on the ground for 2018 is "stable." There's still a lot of potential in the mid- and lower ends of the market, and an opportunity for investors to fill the demand that federal housing can't. I'm also a believer that repositioning in this sector, when executed properly, can yield outsize returns. When it comes to multifamily, we've been consistently rewarded in our "fight for quality" rather than a "flight to quality." We'd rather put in the hard work and assemble the expertise needed to effectively renovate and reposition properties than go straight into a bidding war for the most attractive luxury offerings on the market.

Where capital exceeds supply, look at the sub-markets for better long-term value. Retail may still be a drag, but investors spoke with their feet when it came to the performance of well-placed industrials and housing last year, where we saw strong investment activity. From every indication we have, e-commerce will continue to drive demand for warehouse and logistics space. If you want to talk about the Amazon effect, look no further than the ongoing race for warehouse space that's closer to metropolitan areas. Now that customers can get what they order faster than ever, they're never going to go back to accepting 5-7 day shipping. We're believers that the bid to close the "last mile" to the customer will continue to take industrials outside of their traditional footprints and closer to metropolitan and residential centers. On the overall housing front, there's some softening in the higher end of Class A (high-end) rentals, so again, don't bet on quality alone but look for under served areas with high concentrations of middle-class workers. As with industrials, we keep a close eye on where new construction is going in the established markets, but a closer one on the suburban markets where we think there's even greater upside.

Rates are low, but they won't stay there. We have a new Fed chair, tax reform is settling in and we're now underway with housing finance reform. While money will probably stay cheap for the immediate future, it's an open question where the dust settles after the coming rate hikes and the potential end of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac as we know them. Even if mortgage finance reform fails to clear Congress, we are planning for an uncertain second half of 2018 on this front.
My team and I keep all of this front and center when we make decisions at A-Rod Corp and its subsidiaries. While we have fully integrated our capabilities from finding and underwriting assets to management and exit, it all boils down to a simple formula: buy, fix, and sell. Stacking up capital for some kind of correction is critical to our 2018 game plan. As we look forward, we are being more selective and cautious before we buy than ever (we've actually sold over 2,000 units in the past 18 months). We're no strangers to drama in the ninth inning, but we bank on preparation and a steady mindset to get us through.

America's 10 most valuable malls are bringing in billions in sales. Here's where they are

The U.S. retail landscape has its fair share of underperforming, out-of-date properties, but the highest-quality malls are still attracting shoppers in droves, raking in more than $1,000 per square foot, well above the industry's average.

According to boutique research firm Boenning & Scattergood, the 20 most valuable malls in America that are owned by real estate investment trusts bring in roughly $21 billion in retail sales annually.

So-called A malls owned by the likes of Simon Property Group, General Growth Properties, Macerich and Westfield have little to no vacancy today, thanks to those landlords and leasing agents being quick to sign deals with new tenants as department stores and specialty apparel retailers flee.

Spread across the U.S., from Hawaii to Las Vegas to New Jersey, America's best malls often include food halls curated with local eateries, rotating pop-up exhibits to house e-commerce brands, popular off-price retailers, grocers and experiential venues.

Industry experts are watching to see how this list evolves over the next few years, with countless massive mall redevelopments underway, including Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust's Fashion District project in the heart of Philadelphia. "We hope that investors get a more granular understanding of the inherent value in the mall sector," Boenning & Scattergood analyst Floris van Dijkum said.

Here are the most valuable REIT-owned malls in the country, based on an asset's value, according to Boenning & Scattergood.

MGM China delays opening of $3.4 billion Cotai casino resort for fourth time

MGM China Holdings, one of Macau's six major casino operators, has delayed for a fourth time the opening of its much anticipated $3.4 billion new resort, MGM Cotai, saying it was still going through an administrative approval process.

The company's second integrated casino, hotel and entertainment complex in Macau, MGM Cotai was originally scheduled to open on January 29, and invitations to the opening ceremony had already been sent out.

The complex was first scheduled for opening in 2016, a date that was pushed back to the first half of 2017 and then to the second half of 2017, before the company announced in September last year the date would be January 29.

"The company is going through the administrative approval process of obtaining relevant licences to operate MGM Cotai," MGM China said in a filing to the Hong Kong stock exchange. "As a result, it is now expected that the public opening date of MGM Cotai will be within the month of February 2018."

London's 'almost toxic' housing market might not give investors the returns they are looking for

London housing has become less attractive for investors as they see limited room for prices to pick up in the U.K.'s expensive capital city, according to analysts.

Brexit and higher taxes to purchase a house have also increased concerns over investment opportunities in London, with investors considering opportunities elsewhere.

"There seems limited scope for price growth in London this year, although outer boroughs that offer a combination of connectivity and affordability will benefit from policies supporting first-time buyers," Tom Sharman, NatWest's head of strategy for Real Estate Finance, told CNBC via email.

According to data from housing market consultancy LSL Acadata, house prices in the central London dropped massively in 2017. In the borough of Southwark, prices dropped 21.1 percent in the year to November, while in the City of Westminster prices dropped 19.4 percent in the same period.

However, the data for each borough is mixed, depending on where it originated from. For instance, real estate services provider CBRE reported that house prices in Southwark actually increased 1 percent throughout 2017.

"One has to be cautious when analyzing pricing data for relatively small areas. These can be quite volatile," Sharman said. "Nonetheless, there are signs that pricing has come off in parts of London over the last year."

What to expect in 2018?
"Prices in the most expensive parts of central London have already corrected over the last few years and this seems likely to ripple outwards this year," Sharman said. "Transaction costs have been a major stumbling block for prospective buyers, particularly in higher value locations, and they will be looking for vendors to share some of the pain."

Despite lower growth opportunities in London housing, investors are also cautious following the U.K.'s decision to leave the European Union.

"I blame Brexit," Thomas Schneider, chief investment officer and founder of online marketplace BrickVest, told CNBC when asked about why house prices in the capital have lowered.

Brexit and taxes
Brexit has created uncertainty, such as how many people from high-paying jobs could end up leaving the city, thus decreasing the demand for purchasing homes.

"From an investor point of view, people currently don't want to touch London. The U.K. overall is attractive but I would define London almost toxic due to the uncertainty," Schneider told CNBC.

He said that although there is investor interest for housing in the U.K., London is less attractive compared to other cities, such as Liverpool, where Brexit is unlikely to have a big economic impact.

A spokesperson for CBRE told CNBC via email: "We would attribute slower sales in the mainstream market partly to the introduction of additional stamp duty in 2018, which our latest data suggests did cause a fall in sales during the latter half of the year (2017)."

Stamp duty is the tax on purchasing a house.

But the CBRE noted one specific area that might still prove attractive to money managers. "The new build sector has mostly bucked this trend and we have seen robust growth in this market," the spokesperson said.
