US ''Driving Returns'' In Global Property Investment

By - Thursday 26 April 2012

The driving force behind the annual returns of 9.8 per cent realised on global real estate investment in 2011 is the recovery in the US's market. In its latest report, IPD revealed the country generated returns of 14.5 per cent for investors, while at the other end of the scale, Ireland's market was firmly in negative territory and in nations such as Portugal and Japan, returns remained flat. The organisation noted declines in the value of real estate, particularly in southern European countries, resulted in a "drag on performance".

A report published last month by Cushman & Wakefield also highlighted the recovery in the Americas region, with the firm pointing out there is reason to be optimistic about the property market in this part of the world this year. "The main drivers of growth - low interest rates, pent-up demand, balance sheet improvement and healthier labour markets - are still very much in place," senior economist and senior managing director of research at the organisation Ken McCarthy asserted. The IPD data highlighted the difference in performance between cities in the US and Canada - such as Vancouver, San Diego, Seattle, New York and Toronto - where returns are close to or above 15 per cent, and those elsewhere in the world, including Sydney, London, Edinburgh, Munich and Berlin, where investors can expect to achieve ten per cent or less on their assets.

Jones Lang LaSalle recently revealed global property investment volumes slid by 23 per cent between the first quarter of this year and the same three-month period in 2011. However, head of the firm's international capital group Arthur de Haast noted that, while economic uncertainty in Europe continued, investment activity in the US and Canada was robust. The volume of transactions completed in the US between January and March was up 16 per cent annually, while Canada experienced growth of more than 50 per cent during the same timeframe.
