Upturn in European property investment activity in Q2

Upturn in European property investment activity in Q2 (News (General))

by administrator @, Monday, August 03, 2009, 18:48

CB Richard Ellis Group, Inc. (CBRE) announced a slight upturn in the European commercial real estate investment market, with turnover for the second quarter (Q2) of 2009 totaling €13 billion, a 12% increase on the €11.6 billion transacted in Q1 2009. The increase in activity was heavily weighted towards the last few weeks of the quarter.
This increase in activity has been matched by stabilising yields. The CB Richard Ellis EU-15 all-property average prime yield rose by just 2 bps in Q2 to 6.13% - a significant change from the recent trend that had seen the average yield increase by 103 bps over the previous four quarters. Of particular note was the fall in the average office yield (albeit by just 2 bps) as a result of tightening yields in Paris and provincial UK markets.

Although the upturn in pan-European investment activity in the second quarter is relatively modest, the results are an indication of improving investor sentiment. The question is now whether the recovery in activity seen in Q2 will be sustained. Even if investor interest remains high, transactions are often taking considerable time to complete and the summer period in July and August is traditionally quieter from an investment perspective. This may mean that the improvement in activity levels will not become fully apparent in terms of completed deals until the last three or four months of the year.
