Catella Infographic Micro-Living

If you look around the European cities now, you experience a liveliness that we have rarely seen in the past two Corona years. Sure, catch-up effects can certainly be diagnosed, and the warmer season will do the rest. However, this “meet & greet” is superimposed by a socio-demographic development that has prevailed in the last 15 years. We are talking about the almost exploding number of so-called "single-person households" in urban centres. The average values ​​here are significantly more than 50% (in comparison: At country level in the EU, these come to around 38%).

    Let's be honest: Would you invest in a property that you can't see or touch, but for which there seems to be a market? Many Hollywood stars and tech representatives are advertising the opportunities here with references to branding, value enhancement and a "completely new efficient world of interaction".

    Catella Logistics Market Map Europe 2022

    Let's not fool ourselves: the fact that the transport, traffic, and logistics industry will continue to be systemically important is becoming clear to many people these days with a view to the geopolitical situation. The interruption and rerouting of transport flows will lead to a short-term increase in storage capacity, which already was a lesson from the first Covid year 2020. The focus here will be less on the “last mile” and more on the “nearshoring” functions. In sober economic language, this means: "Logistics will continue to be a dynamic growth market".

    Catella Office Market Map Germany 2022

    "Well, is there anything else coming up?" - a question that was recently asked frequently in the context of customer discussions at the beginning of the year. What is meant here is the impact of the pandemic on the office property markets. Of course, you must separate the rental and investment markets. To put it less analytically: we are feeling the first slight effects on the rental markets, but none on the investment markets.

    Catella European Office Market Map 2022

    A short version of the state of the European office investment markets would currently read: "Recovery, but". After almost two years of the pandemic, the office asset class is proving to be largely resistant to the crisis, but then comes the "but". At around €87.5 bn, the transaction volume in Europe in 2021 was up on the previous year (+4.1%), but still lags the pre-pandemic period (-28.2% vs. 2020, -15.3% vs. the 10-year average).

    Catella Market Indicator - Finland, Spring 2022 has been published

    The pandemic's impact on the property market remained low. Covid-19 continued to affect the property market last year. In the beginning of the year, the restrictions caused by the second wave of the pandemic kept the transaction volume low, but improved situation in the summer and brisk economic growth throughout the year eventually increased the volume to a level clearly above the year before. Despite the pandemic continuing, properties have maintained their position as a very attractive investment alternative, as interest rates have kept on a very low level and the impact on the rental market, too, eventually remained surprisingly low.

    Catella Infographic: Urban Densification - Climate Change, Heat Islands and Green Spaces

    There is no question that we are on the right track in our efforts to achieve ESG-compliant buildings and neighbourhoods. As part of our Catella-ESG-Monitor, we record, document and optimise indicators such as fresh water quality, water consumption of outdoor facilities, land use, exterior insulation materials, sewage pipes, right down to flooring materials (interior and exterior) and the prevention of thermal energy loss from windows. Sounds impressive right? It is, especially when the scaling effects occur after a few quarters. Put more simply: Those who have started early with the time-consuming collection of data, directly or based on energy performance certificates, can carry out the "roll-out" to the portfolio more quickly.

    Real estate and decarbonisation – many paths in Europe

    You may know this from various business meetings: The goal is clearly defined, but the path is diffuse – full of risks but with plenty of opportunities. On top of that: If you have no experience routines to fall back on, it becomes clear: Building certificates make only a very small contribution to this, as the real estate industry is now forced to admit.
