Property values stable outside the retail sector

  • Further bad news from retailers and rumoured CVAs in the pipeline continue to undermine investor confidence in the retail sector.
  • Core locations and sustainable rents attract investors looking to de-risk. Vacant retail requires a development angle to attract interest.
  • Demand strongest for South East multi let industrial opportunities where rental growth prospects are perceived to be better.
  • Distribution units single let to retailers proving less attractive.
  • Central London looking quiet in Q1, much like last year, until political clarity emerges. Expectations are positive for the year as a whole.
  • Limited new stock in South East and regional markets with stronger interest in established town centre locations

Global Student Housing: Increasingly Global Opportunities

With demand for higher education showing consistent growth, developers and investors are increasingly seeking opportunity for student housing. CBRE’s latest report details the fundamentals of global supply and demand including the following topics:

  • Growing student demand and strong investor interest have
    resulted in a fast-growing, purpose-built student housing (PBSH)
    sector with greater market transparency.
  • Students are increasingly looking beyond domestic markets for
    educational opportunities.
  • While supply is expanding in response to demand, there is
    further room for growth in many markets.
  • Yields are tightening as investment volumes rise.
  • Opportunity can be found in a wider range of markets than ever
    before.

Trends of Q4 set to continue into the New Year

  • Focus remains on retail capital values in a weak occupational market with very patchy demand from investors.
  • Core locations, longer income and inflation linked rental increases remain in demand.
  • Industrial sector calmed down in December but remains attractive with rental growth forecasts positive and funds keen to increase weightings.
  • Q1 expected to be quieter as limited new stock to market envisaged.
  • The market is still working through the new office opportunities available in Q4, with local authorities particularly active in the South East.
  • Requirements for Central London investments and development opportunities remain strong with a wide range of potential buyers.
