Catella Market Tracker: Real Estate Market Spain 2021

No question: the Spanish economy is also suffering from the Corona pandemic. After a 5-year steady upswing, the past year was marked by a strong recession. However, a concerted effort by the government, trade unions and the business community succeeded in setting the economic framework that will lead to robust growth in 2021 and especially 2022.

Catella Market Tracker Student Housing 2021

It is interesting how quickly the market perspectives change. Whereas in 2016 many in the real estate market were still convinced that student housing was a locally anchored niche segment, in 2018 we were able to diagnose the establishment of an asset class. The number of transactions increasingly shifted into institutional, often pan-European hands, characterised by a strong increase in the inflow of funds.

Catella Infographic: Decarbonisation & Green Finance

There is hardly a survey among corporates on the market-changing topics of the future in which the topic of ESG is not placed among the TOP 3 - no matter in which country we are in Europe. Working groups that explore standards and market practices are springing up everywhere. Especially the aspect of capital flow into real estate vehicles or assets is of great interest here.

Catella Office Market Map Germany 2021

We cannot look very far into the future with a precision landing, but we can analyse the past and the current situation, interpret it and derive recommendations for action from it. Above all, we can "price in" the current corona situation on the commercial real estate markets - you only have to talk to the corporates, landlords tenants and investors, and a robust picture will emerge of what will happen in the coming quarters. To put it in a nutshell: The German office markets are by no means immune, in view of the economic situation - but so far they have shown themselves to be largely crisis-resistant. Vacancies are rising only moderately; rents and purchase prices are holding steady.

Catella European Office Market Map 2020/21

After 12 months of pandemic, the office spaces in the 38 European locations we studied are suffering from below-average intensity of use. We assume that currently between Oulu and Madrid, between Dublin and Warsaw, only about 20% of the offices are regularly visited by employees on a weekly basis. Even more, a complete return to the office after the end of the pandemic seems less and less likely.

Catella Infographic: DNA of the Commercial Real Estate Assets

It probably happened in December 2020 - we don't know for sure. We are talking about the trillion mark that the assets held by real estate funds in the euro zone have exceeded. A value that marks a new era. An end to this upward trend is not yet foreseeable, especially since the combination of liquidity and a lack of alternative investment opportunities continues to point the way to pro real estate.

Catella European Retail Market Map 2021

There is no question that the asset class "retail" is under enormous restructuring pressure throughout Europe. Although the current downward trend was announced at the latest in the last decade and was only masked by the very good economic situation in the last few years, the current pandemic crisis clearly shows the breaking points.

Catella Market Indicator - Finland, Spring 2021

Active property transaction year despite the pandemicThe transaction volume of the property market was EUR 5.7 billion in 2020. The transaction volume decreased slightly from 2019, which can be at least partially explained by corona crisis and resulting travel and other restrictions, that hampered transactions. Despite the exceptional conditions, foreign investors interest towards Finnish property market remained strong. In 2020, Finland gained property investments worth EUR 3.0 billion by foreign investors, which was circa 53% of all investments.
