CBRE marked a resounding end to 2013 at their 4th December auction, raising £22 million with a 78% success rate, after competitive bidding erupted in a packed room at London’s Millennium Hotel.
Some 34 out of 44 lots offered have sold to date including five prior to the event. Big ticket properties sold well with three lots in the room and two prior, producing final bids in excess of £1 million. Professional commercial buyers and private investors chased retail and leisure stock with a particular focus on properties with residential upper parts, for which there was a good depth of bidding in the room.
The amount of new supermarket space in the UK development pipeline has overtaken that of shopping centre floorspace for the first time ever, reflecting the strong demand for supermarket floor space.
UK commercial property total returns continued to improve in November, by reaching 1.6%, meaning it is at 9.3% for the year to date. Capital values increased, growing by 1.0% over the month and 3.1% so far in 2013, according to CBRE’s latest Monthly Index. If it continues at this rate, capital growth will reach 4.1% for 2013 and total returns will be 11%.
