    Supply finally meeting Demand? Expatriate Housing in Yangon, Myanmar

    Two years ago the economy in Yangon was booming. Recently, however, apartment rents have decreased, since supply is ample and construction of new executive-quality units is ongoing. Rents for houses have remained stable for the most part, with landlords preferring to leave properties vacant in areas such as Golden Valley rather than decrease the rent. Sources said fewer assignees are coming to Yangon as some companies are waiting to see how the political situation evolves before sending new expatriates.
