Investors prefer shopping centers

In the first half of 2012, almost half of investments in the Russian commercial real estate market fell on retail space, overtaking investments in office construction for the first time in five years. Amid the decline in quality supply in Moscow, investors conclude more and more transactions in the regions, concentrating mainly on shopping centers, analysts explain.

According to the results of the first six months of 2012, $ 1,523 billion was invested in Russian commercial real estate, which is 44% lower than in the same period in 2011, experts of the consulting company CBRE calculated. At the same time, the share of transactions in the retail market for the first time in recent years surpassed the office segment, pay attention to CBRE. In the first half of 2012, retail real estate accounted for 49% of investments, while office real estate accounted for only 37%. Investments in retail real estate in the Moscow region in January-June 2012 increased by 31% compared to the first half of 2011, according to Colliers International. Jones Lang LaSalle recalls that in the past five years, the preferences of investors were on the side of retail only in 2007 - then it accounted for more than 40% of funds.

Against the background of a relative cooling of the overall investment activity and a reduction in quality supply in Moscow, analysts state an increase in interest in the regions. According to CBRE, the total investment in the regional real estate market in the first half of this year was 2,4 times more than in the same period last year: 288 million versus $ 118 million, respectively. “At the same time, due to the underdevelopment of the office and industrial real estate markets outside Moscow and St. Petersburg, investor interest is primarily concentrated on shopping centers,” says Valentin Gavrilov, director of market research at CBRE.

In the remaining half of the year, analysts predict an increase in investment in Russian commercial real estate due to problems in the euro area. “Russia today seems to be a relatively less risky and profitable place for investment,” says Matiash Serzhak, director of the investment services department at Colliers International. For his part, the General Director of Retail Row Marat Manasyan adds that in Russia the risk levels are higher than in European countries, but the profitability is also higher. According to Jones Lang LaSalle, the minimum capitalization rates in Moscow in offices and retail are 9%. At the same time, capitalization rates in the retail segment in Paris are 5%, in London and Warsaw - 6%. Writes about this rbcdaily.ru.
