The number of properties being sold in Bulgaria has fallen steeply in the first six months of this year and the volume of new real estate being built is also declining.

A series of new reports from the real estate industry show the full extent of the global economic downturn on the nation's property market and indicate no signs of recovery coming this year.

Real estate transactions tumbled 35% year-on-year in the first half of 2009, according to data from the Registry Agency. The downtrend affected all major cities and seaside resorts, with Sofia, Varna and Samokov region, including upscale winter resort Borovets, collapsing by around 50%. The report blamed lagging investment activity and the global financial downturn.

While the latest report from Raiffeisen Real Estate shows that property sales are down on average by 42% with Sofia transaction volumes down 58%. It also found that sales were sluggish in the once popular Black Sea resort of Sunny Beach.

Falling property prices in Spain Posting by administrator, Monday, August 24, 2009, 17:51:

Property prices in Spain are continuing to fall according to the latest published prices but there are signs that bargains are starting to attract more real estate investors, especially at the top end of the market.

On the face of it the latest figures from the National Institute of Statistics make poor reading. Year on year to the end of June prices dropped an average of 26%. New properties fell 18% and re-sale real estate was down 33%.

But the figures show that the rate of decline is slowing leading some to believe that the real estate market is starting to bottom out. The June figures are marginally better than May when average prices fell 33% year on year.

Cypriot developers expected to slash prices Posting by administrator, Monday, August 24, 2009, 17:48:

Foreign property investors are deserting the real estate market in Cyprus with the latest published figures showing a 75% drop in the number of non-Cypriot buyers.

According to data from the Land Registry Department the number of property sold to foreign buyers fell to less than 1,100 in the first seven months of 2009 compared with 4,552 during the same period of 2008.

Areas like Larnaca and Famagusta which have always been popular with foreign buyers saw an astounding 80% fall in purchases by non nationals.

The Mediterranean islands property market is also being battered by falling property prices and the on-going row over title deeds and the resulting bad publicity may also be putting buyers off.

Upturn in European property investment activity in Q2 Posting 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.

Poor showing for commercial property rents across Europe Posting by administrator, Friday, July 24, 2009, 19:34:

Rents in all commercial property sectors in Europe are affected by weak economic conditions across the continent in the second quarter of this year, according to a new report.

But it is the office sector that has been hit hardest. In a survey of 49 office locations some 26 saw prime rents fall, 23 were unchanged with none experiencing an increase, the latest index from CB Richard Ellis shows.

The steepest fall was in Kiev, down 25%, followed by Moscow which saw rents decline 16%. Several other Central and Eastern European markets also saw downward pressure.

Among the major western European office markets, notable quarterly falls occurred in London, Madrid, Dublin and Oslo, while rents remained relatively stable in Germany and the Netherlands.

Prime country property prices in UK rising Posting by administrator, Wednesday, July 08, 2009, 19:17:

The average price for prime country property in one of the most popular parts of the UK is rising as analysts believe values are now bottoming out.

In the second quarter of 2009 the average price for prime country properties in the Home Counties rose by 0.8%, according to the latest Knight Frank Prime Country House Index.

Overall, prices for prime country houses dropped on average by under 1%, compared with a 4.7% fall in the first three months of the year. So on an annual basis, average prices have fallen by 17.5% in the 12 months to the end June, compared with a 20% drop in the 12 months to the end of March.

UN acts to boost Responsible Property Investment Posting by administrator, Wednesday, June 24, 2009, 15:41:

Responsible investment is fast moving up the agenda for many institutional property investors around the world. However, many remain uncertain about how best to implement the practicalities of Responsible Property Investment (RPI). To advance RPI thinking and practice globally, the Property Working Group (PWG) of the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) has launched the first in a series of toolkits aimed at helping investors understand and apply the principles of RPI.

European commercial real estate investment Posting by administrator, Friday, June 19, 2009, 15:35:

Cushman & Wakefield has presented its European commercial real estate investment update. The highlights are:

Trading volumes fall to €11.4bn in quarter one, 74% down on the same period of 2008.

Prime yields rose 28bp to 7.5%, their highest level for nearly 5 years and 139bp up since 2007.

Occupier markets are increasingly negative, with rents down in 24 of the 32 countries examined and by 14.5% overall (annualized Q1 growth), led by falls in the East.

Nonetheless, early signs that some investors are now ready to act – led by interest in the UK.

But how much equity is available and will the stock be there that investors want to buy?

Rising public debt encouraging sales of government property Posting by administrator, Friday, June 19, 2009, 15:28:

CBRE has today released a new report, Governments Turn to Property Sales?, which considers the scope for sales of government property and reviews asset disposal plans in a number of major markets including France, Germany, Greece and the UK.

How to shift an unwanted holiday home Posting by administrator, Wednesday, June 17, 2009, 20:25:

Economic gloom, falling overseas property prices, increasingly non-existent mortgage finance and a sliding pound have left many overseas property investors wishing they hadn't bothered. And those who paid deposits to buy off-plan properties when prices were booming are becoming increasingly desperate to back out before they are forced to cough up the remainder of the purchase price.
