Office and Retail Investment

March 2018

Activity in the commercial investment market ratcheted up late last year and into 2018 with the sale of a large retail portfolio and various en-bloc commercial premises grabbing headlines.

The commercial investment market was characterised by large scale transactions in Q4/2017 with the sale of a 17-retail property portfolio by Link REIT the most eye-catching.

Several en-bloc commercial buildings were also sold to long-term investors and end users.

The re-emergence of investment funds in the office sector, in particular in decentralized areas, indicates returning confidence to a market which has been dogged by concerns over new supply.

The steady recovery in retail sales is finally translating into major transactions in the retail sector.

Upcoming government tenders and provision of commercial sites may alleviate the supply shortage in both office and retail sectors in core areas in the medium term.

While Grade A office prices look set to increase further this year, retail prices are likely to bottom out and record a modest increase over the same period.
