European Logistics Markets: High transaction prices, high rents, low yields

The European market for logistics property is part of the boom in the European real estate markets. Demand is increasing, while the supply of new properties is hardly keeping pace. As a result, transaction prices and rents are rising, while yields are falling. It is only a matter of time before yields drop below the 4.00% threshold. Investors therefore need to pay particular attention to potential regions. Catella Research has analysed the European logistics scene, covering 109 logistics locations in 104 regions.

Catella: Rents and sale prices rising in the European housing markets, yields falling

All over Europe – the housing markets of metropolises and regional locations are showing impressive growth rates – people continue to move to cities and urban centres, rents and purchase prices are rising, yields are falling. The analysis of the European housing markets can be summed up in this short formula. But in spite of this "perfect storm" from an investors approach, the developments that put those responsible under pressure are also becoming visible.

Investor Survey 2019

A few weeks ago, we once again asked the German multi-asset managers about their attitude and perspective when it comes to real estate. Especially since the signs have changed: Looking back, the real estate year 2019 will go down in history as the era in which value-added investment strategies structurally replaced traditional core-investment-styles. Structurally, because there are no signs of a significant change in the interest rate landscape. In addition, there are changes at the macroeconomic level: it is becoming more and more obvious that classical property selection, applied to selected markets using a top-down approach, is becoming more and more ambitious. In the current transaction market, it is clear that the majority of investments are primarily made on a deal-by-deal basis.

Investment locations Germany 2019: Residential – rents and yields

The German housing markets have now reached the heart of political life. The coalition agreement not only provides for the rent indexes to be standardised or qualified, but also for the "actual tenancies" to be recorded. Nevertheless, the question arises as to how the markets have actually functioned in recent decades?

Investor focus on Nordic real estate markets

We once again focused on the Nordic real estate markets. It is obvious that this is less difficult for us due to our broad and deep market coverage as a company with Nordic roots. On the other hand, we have also noticed stronger investor demand in the Nordics in the past 24 months, especially with enquiries from first-time international investors particularly.

Finland Residential Market Tracker Q2 2019

What do you think of when you hear the term "residential real estate investments"? And what else do you think of when you hear the term "Finland"? An exotic combination? It may be that a holiday home in Karelia in the slowly approaching summer spontaneously comes to mind. But investors traditionally see it more rationally. An asset class and a market with clear upwards potential is the current picture they see. The combination unites exactly two aspects that have come on the radar of investors in recent years in search of attractive investments.

Boutique and lifestyle hotels booming

"Traveling used to be somehow easier." This thought or sigh may go over some people's lips in their current planning. Especially since meanwhile the travel and/or vacation planning is focused only indirectly on the supraregional or local choice of the location. "Mountains or sea" is supplemented increasingly also by "city" or "event" and "choice of travel means". Never before has there been such a choice in the search for recreation, education and adventure or best all together.

Food courts as the key to repositioning German shopping centres

The wave of digital transformation has been one of the most discussed topics in recent years, and the emergence of the e-commerce market is one of the direct impacts that most of us encounter in our everyday lives. The practical option of having goods delivered to your front door, in some cases even on the same day they are ordered, has long since proved to be a structural threat to the retail sector. Shopping centres appear to be the most affected by this change and are under strong transformation pressure. The creation of "shopping experiences" and the focus on leisure shopping, it seems, are some of the most significant strategic options for repositioning. At the core is a strong focus on food & beverage (F&B) in shopping centres, more gastronomy and sufficient experience to manage this transformation process.

Flexible workspaces in the commercial office markets still on the rise in 2019

The market for innovative space solutions at the workplace remains dynamic, the demand for so-called flexible office space, or to use the now established term "coworking", is increasing. There is no doubt that this is less a product than an industrial transformation process. A measurable detachment from long-term space ties on the part of companies, towards short-term rental structures.

Real Estate Investments in Europe – Monetary Turnaround on the Move?

At the beginning of 2019, qualitative sentiment patterns and quantifiable fundamental values collide once again. Both belong together in the markets, and it is precisely the supposedly objective weighting of both factors that forms the basis for future behaviour and action on the capital and real estate markets. This is usually noiseless when sentiment and fundamental indicators are largely synchronised - as has usually been the case over the past five years in Europe.
