Our Forecast

FORECASTING : A dedicated team of economists

We recognise that real estate is local and to gain deeper understanding of each market, researchers need to have an in-depth knowledge of the heterogeneous market place. As such our economists are locally based and embedded with the local research professionals.
Our dedicated team of real estate economists cover 40 key real estate markets across Europe. They provide forecasts for key metrics from the fundamentals (supply, demand, vacancy rate and rents) to performance (yields, capital growth and total return) in the mains real estate sectors (Offices, Retail and Logistics). In the office sector they look at both the prime and secondary segments, giving our clients deeper understanding of trends in this important sector.

The final outlook is underpinned by a rigorous methodology of formal econometric modelling and inputs from local professionals to help tune the outcome with real time information. Together with our investment management research teams we develop a risk/return analysis using our forecast to provide our clients with strategic advice based on our acute understanding of the past and emerging future trends in the European real estate markets.
  • Q1 2018 European office prospects

    This year has begun equally well, with some significant transactions already reported in a number of cities. However, the general consensus is that most markets are approaching the end of the current cycle. This has led us to think that 2018 is likely to mark a turning point for most markets.

  • Q3 2017 European office prospects

    The story of European investment since 2013 has been one of continued yield compression and accelerated capital growth, supported by record transaction volumes. As we move into 2018, the cycle in Europe broadly is likely to be at a point of inflexion.
