Greece Real Estate Report Q4 2012

The Greece Real Estate report examines the commercial office, retail, industrial and construction
segments alongside the construction sector in the context of the country's continuing economic struggles.
With a focus on the principal cities of Athens, Piraeus and Thessaloniki, the report covers the rental
market performance in terms of rates and yields over the past 18 months and examines how best to
maximise returns in the commercial real estate market, while minimising investment risk and exploring
the impact of the government led austerity on a long-stagnant market. Key complementary industry areas
are also examined including the construction industry and business environment, key in analysing
investor sentiment.
While the Greek government has overcome a number of obstacles, and the pace of contraction continues
to ease in 2012, we stress that a return to sustainable growth is predicated not just on successful economic
reforms but also on targeting policies at future growth industries and restoring confidence. The short-term
outlook for the real estate sector is not likely to restore investor confidence any time soon: the pipeline is
glacial, demand-destruction is endemic and oversupply is rife. The risks for the real estate sector as a
whole are therefore firmly weighted to the downside, with a slight silver lining coming in the form of
high-end space, particularly in the retail and office segments. Greece's construction industry is expected
to remain in recession for the sixth consecutive year in 2012, and we do not expect a recovery until 2015.
Key Points:
The pace of economic contraction in Greece could finally start to ease, which would be
supportive of our view that the depression will moderate in 2013. That is not to say, however,
that the depression is coming to an end. We still see another down year in 2013 and expect
growth to remain very subdued over the foreseeable future. Moreover, while we still believe that
Greece leaving the eurozone is not a one way bet, we warn that should this scenario materialise,
the economy would be facing a double-digit contraction as the banking system collapses and
private sector wealth is destroyed.
Ongoing economic pressures, investors' caution and government austerity drive will act as the
main impediments for recovery in the Greek construction industry. Our core scenario envisages
a sixth consecutive year of contraction in the industry in 2012 and little prospects for a recovery
until 2015. However, there a handful of infrastructure projects - mainly coming from EU
funding - that could offer some upside risks to our outlook.
The privatisation of Greek energy and infrastructure assets is proceeding at full-speed, with the
government planning to re-launch the entire process over the coming weeks. This is the third
time in two years that the venture will have been launched, although this time the government
has thrown its weight behind the process, making another false start unlikely. We believe there
will be significant efficiency gains for the Greek energy and transport networks, following the
liberalisation of the sectors which will pay dividends for wider economic activity in the coming
years. Some existing privately run assets create a positive precedent (COSCO in Piraeus Port,
the Athens International Airport for instance); this, combined with increased investor interest in
assets, suggests that if the privatisations proceed as planned, momentum will be gained quickly.

  • Kuwait Real Estate Report 2016
    Published: 27-Apr-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 61
    BMI View: The real estate sector is currently witnessing marginally increasing rental rates due to continued demand and low levels of new developments. Therefore, supply is reducing in relation to demand and the vacancy rate coming down. There is sustained demand for modern units in all sectors, particularly the retail and industrial sectors bolstered by consumer demand from the young population. An overreliance upon the oil sector continues to threaten growth in the coun......
  • Qatar Real Estate Report 2016
    Published: 13-Apr-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 66
    BMI View: We have a stable outlook for Qatar's economy in the medium term, reflecting the countries resilience to the collapse in oil prices over 2015. Rising consumer confidence and spending, alongside greater governmental investment, will present opportunities in the retail and office sub-sectors in 2016 and 2017, supported by improvements to infrastructure that will benefit the broader real estate market. Qatar is an exporter of petroleum and LNG, which accounts for 70......
  • Israel Real Estate Report AN 2016
    Published: 06-Apr-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 53
    BMI View: A key theme that we forecast for 2016 will be subdued supply, as a result of increasing conflict affecting confidence in the country. However, Israel remains an outperformer regionally in terms of the established nature of the real estate sector, and in the short term growth in rental rates is expected to remain stable. We expect rental rates to rise from 2017 onwards as the currency depreciates slightly after a faster-than-expected appreciation in 2015. W......

    BMI View: The economy is performing well, with a series of positive developments over 2014 and 2015. These include governmental reforms that have reduced political tensions through the dilution of power and development of a more transparent business environment. We believe these improvements, along with the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project, will spur investment in the commercial real estate market. However, regional tensions, security risks and low GDP per ......

    BMI View: The government's reform agenda will lead to an improvement in India's business and investment environments. This includes this includes funding for key infrastructure developments and allowing greater levels of foreign direct investment (FDI). We believe that these developments will present opportunities for growth in the commercial real estate market in the long term. However, external challenges and slowing headline growth will limit the scope for sector growt......
  • Singapore Real Estate Report 2016
    Published: 16-Mar-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 55
    BMI View: Singapore is a global financial and retail hub, with a strong tourist trade and a resilient economy. The commercial real estate market is mature, and has a large number of domestic and international players. However, Singapore's economy is externally oriented, and as such growth in the commercial real estate sector could be dampened by a global slowdown. Economic growth was slow over 2015 due to a slowdown in major trade partner China. Although a recovery ......

    BMI View: Economic reforms, infrastructure spending, a growing services sector and rising incomes should provide a boost to Indonesia's commercial real estate sector in the medium term, increasing its appeal to investors. Indonesia is set to see real GDP growth of 6.0% a year between 2016 and 2020. Incomes and household purchasing power are expected to increase and favourable demographics will continue to drive the retail sector and support the warehousing and logis......
  • Chile Real Estate Report 2016
    Published: 02-Mar-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 54
    BMI View: The commercial real estate sector in Chile is set to benefit from steady economic growth over the medium term. We expect rents to rise in the retail sector, buoyed by rising private consumption, while the office market is likely to remain stable, but at risk of over-supply given the amount of new construction taking place. The industrial real estate market will be affected by slower growth in trade in the short term, but the growth of e-commerce and the broadeni......

    BMI View: Short-term problems surrounding foreign currency, high inflation and security issues have dampened economic growth in early 2016. However, the government's economic reforms and closer relations with fellow Arab states will lead to greater opportunities in the commercial real estate sector in the longer term. Egypt has been struggling to retain foreign capital since the uprising in 2011 that led to the downfall of former president Hosni Mubarak. The adminis......
