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.

  • China Real Estate Report 2017
    Published: 16-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 80
    BMI View: Government stimulus appears to have stabilised the Chinese economy over recent quarters. However, structural issues now pose liquidity and credit risks, with a price correction in real estate, or further contractions in domestic demand, potentially leading to economic turmoil. Commercial real estate is supported by solid demand during a time of uncertainty, especially in the prime office and retail subsectors. As international companies keep demand high for spac......
  • Germany Real Estate Report 2017
    Published: 16-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 56
    BMI View: German commercial real estate offers significant potential for investment, with the office and retail sub-sectors outperforming regional markets. Instability in the eurozone, dwindling global demand and rising debt have been shrugged off by strong macroeconomics, supporting stable economic growth. We believe there is room for further rental growth in 2017, on the back of bullish sentiment, high demand and greater business confidence. Germany is the fourth ......
  • Australia Real Estate Report 2017
    Published: 09-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 59
    BMI View: Commercial real estate in Australia has weathered external headwinds from a slowdown in China, global economic uncertainty and a fall commodities prices. This can be attributed to the influx of foreign investment into prime assets that has kept prices buoyant and rental rates comparatively high. However, the surge of acquisitions from foreign investors has led to falling capitalisation rates, primarily influenced by a lack of supply. The current investment clima......
  • Hong Kong Real Estate Report 2017
    Published: 09-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 63
    BMI View: The office sub-sector is likely to perform better than retail and industrial real estate over the next two years. However, the outlook for all three sub-sectors points to greater vibrancy, with higher levels of activity in both the leasing and investment market as economic growth picks up momentum from 2017 onwards. Economic growth in Hong Kong is expected to be weak in 2017, with GDP forecast to rise by 1.7%. This reflects the slowdown in domestic demand ......
  • Taiwan Real Estate Report 2016
    Published: 05-Oct-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 53
    BMI View: The brief Taiwan recession - ending in Q216 and resulting in a trade volumes slump for the export-orientated nation - sent shockwaves through the economy, affecting foreign direct investment flows and seeing domestic demand dwindle. As a result, the commercial real estate industry has been rather dormant over the course of 2016, with only eight transactions recorded in the last six months. A return to growth for Taiwan will bode well for the commercial real ......
  • Croatia Real Estate Report 2016
    Published: 28-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 55
    BMI View: An overwhelming vote of no confidence in the Croatian Prime Minister, Tihomir Oreskovic, has sent ripples through the Croatian parliament - delaying much-needed structural reforms and affecting investor sentiment. Additionally, continued growth in public debt, high levels of unemployment and headwinds from the volatile EU market post-Brexit will add further strain to the economy. We therefore anticipate low levels of demand to continue across the commercial real......
  • Ukraine Real Estate Report 2016
    Published: 14-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 49
    BMI View: A return to GDP growth signals that the economy has crawled out of recession, and with greater public acceptance in the newly established Groysman government, we believe there is potential for increased investment into the economy over the next few years. However, continued armed conflict along the eastern border, low GDP per capita and high unemployment serve as warnings to potential investors in the commercial real estate sector. The commercial real esta......
  • South Korea Real Estate Report 2016
    Published: 31-Aug-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 64
    BMI View: South Korea's commercial real estate sector should remain stable in 2016, benefiting from a positive economic outlook. Demand for space is expected to be underpinned by expansion in the services sector, higher purchasing power and accelerating growth in online shopping. The slowdown in the Chinese economy poses a risk to the overall performance of the South Korean economy and hence the property market, but on the whole we believe that the long-term outlook is br......
  • Romania Real Estate Report 2016
    Published: 31-Aug-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 58
    BMI View: A steady recovery in the Romanian economy, based on strong fundamental macroeconomics in terms of wages, consumer spending and employment figures, should see demand remain steady across the commercial real estate sector for 2016. Headwinds from EU economic uncertainty and lower global demand have seen buyers and tenants favour prime locations in established cities to avoid 'high-risk' assets. However, dwindling supply lines offer stability in rental rates, and r......
