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.

    Published: 16-Apr-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 68
    Subdued construction growth and macroeconomic headwinds, combined with questionable economic measures put in place by the government, are having a detrimental effect on the country's commercial real estate sector. Construction industry growth will remain under 2% under 2016; however, there are projects in the pipeline that give us hope the sector can recover. Office space is a particular bright spot, especially in Cordoba and Buenos Aires, and this segment is arguably keeping the real estate sec......

    BMI View: GDP growth in India drop to the lowest level in over a decade in 2013, while persistent structural issues ranging from the financial system to national infrastructure saw widespread capital flight in addition to record setting lows for the Indian Rupee against the dollar. All these factors represent a challenging environment for the commercial real estate sector. Despite these challenges, the commercial real estate market has thus far managed to avoid significant downturns, although de......

    BMI View: Romania's economy as a whole is forecast to grow by 2.8% in real terms in 2014, according to our Country Risk team's latest macroeconomic outlook. Underpinning our continued relative optimism for the country's commercial real estate sector is growing activity in the local construction market and an increase in pipeline dynamism which should help to re-invigorate the commercial real estate sector as it continues to suffer the after effects of the global financial crisis. With a focus on......

    BMI View: As political protests continue in the Thai capital, the commercial real estate sector is in general proving resilient. However, our key downside risk for the sector this quarter is that the impact of the protests on investor confidence in the country as a whole increases. While we believe that the commercial real estate market in general will hold up well in the face of the ongoing political turmoil in Thailand, the longer it last the more of an impact it will have. The Bank of Thailan......

    The UK's real estate sector has performed well since the property crash and recession took hold, despite experiencing two years of negative economic growth, in 2008 and 2009. Growth has been sluggish in the years since, but a healthy project pipeline and low vacancy rates, particularly in the office and retail segments, has bolstered investment and returns. However, a lack of short-term development in certain areas, such as office space in London, could lead to demand outstripping supply. Office......

    BMI View: Conditions within Hungary's commercial real estate sector are slowly improving, with the market expected to have reached its lowest ebb during H113. A healthier macroeconomic backdrop should provide the basis for the recovery and, it is hoped, rental rates over 2014, with a strengthening consumer and export sector expected to drive demand. An upturn in Hungary's macroeconomic outlook in 2014 should help to support growth in demand for commercial real estate, brining some much-needed re......

    BMI View: We are increasingly positive regarding the long-term strength of Vietnam's commercial real estate sector. Although we are expecting some softness to continue in the market in the short-term, due to oversupply in some sectors and cities, in the long term the strength of the country's economy and manufacturing base, as well as its youthful demographic, will drive the commercial real estate market. Various factors combine to mean that we are optimistic for Vietnamese commercial real estat......

    BMI View: We are forecasting Mexico's commercial real estate industry to show a consistent, yet unremarkable performance over 2014, with rental rates across all sub-sectors expected to remain flat as the standoff between the market's long-term potential and macroeconomic headwinds continues. The country has one of the most stable growth outlooks in the region, and an operating environment which is seeing tangible improvements and rising longer-term prospects. Nevertheless, the poor financial con......
