Long income and specialist sectors dominating investor requirements
- As expectations of an interest rate rise in May recede due to weak economic data, fundamentals remain strong for secure income streams and prime locations.
- Sentiment for all but the very best retail has been adversely affected by continued occupier weakness. Office transactions in the regions year to date eclipse turnover in the Central London market where activity is 30% down on the five year average.
- Industrial lettings in Q1 accounted for more than half the 2017 total floorspace let, and industrial portfolio sales have been a very popular method of marketing secondary stock.
