Ukrainian office real estate market

Throughout 2012, a significant number of new objects have appeared in the commercial real estate market. For their full absorption, it will take a rather long period of time. But the owners of such objects this year will focus all their efforts to preserve the already implemented pool of tenants. At the same time, buying an apartment in a new building Moscow in the Russian Federation is much easier.

Last year, about $ 600 million was invested in the commercial real estate segment in the total account. This indicator is essentially the most significant over the period of the last five years. At the same time, experts do not recommend regarding this indicator in the context of the general investment attractiveness of the country. More than 60 percent of the total size of transactions with commercial real estate objects last 2012 had to sell Ocean Plaza shopping center, which is 350 million dollars in monetary terms.

It should be noted that the capitalization rates last year have been preserved within the framework of the expectations in which they actually were supposed at the end of 2011 – 10.5 – 12.5 percent regarding the office segment, and 11.5 – 14 percent for the segment of warehouses.

If during this 2013 there will be no economic or commercial shocks in the country, then we can expect to preserve bets for commercial real estate at the same level.

In Russia, according to the results of last 2012, about $ 7 billion was invested in the commercial real estate segment. The prevailing majority of transactions in the country was on the segment of office and trade real estate. This year, in the commercial type real estate market, in many respects similar trends are expected – an increase in the total number of transactions in the segment of warehouses.
