Record Breaking Commercial Property Figures Revealed

According to leading property news company Property Magazine International, the UKs property industry has finally reached an all-time high for 2014, following an impressive month on month increase between the months May and April.

Statistics provided in the article show that there was a 0.8% increase in property value between the two months, which saw values rising to a national average of 1.1% in May. Despite these record-breaking figures, experts still predict another rise in commercial property statistics as they expect 2014’s figures to emulate 2007’s property market prosperity. Most commercial real estate showed a 1.6% return over the course of this time.

Research experts indicated that despite a 1% increase in value, retail commercial property was still underperforming compared to its other commercial property counterparts like industrial property. A further 0.9% increase in May signalled a 1.4% increase in returns for the retail sector in April. Meanwhile, the recordings in other sectors were equally impressive with industrial commercial property and offices delivering a 1.2% and 1.3% growth respectively.

London remained the best performer in the UK as statistics showed that shop rental in Central London was up by 0.7% while South East London shops were up by 0.1%. While the whole country maintained a high yield of 6.9%, the largest yield contribution was made by the capital, which has become a sanctuary for profit-focused investors. Central London alone produced a 1.8% yield in capital values, and understandably London could potentially be set for yet another wave of commercial property investors seeking to seize the currently available investment opportunities.
