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

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.
