Out with the old: Obsolescence has advantages for investors

Obsolescence is a powerful dynamic. Growing old — whether quickly or slowly, it still happens — can take you to places where you might not otherwise choose to go. Like anything, real estate wears out over time and needs renewing or replacing. Businesses change, people change, tastes change; and the use to which land and buildings are put also changes.


Feel the squeeze

According to research from Savills, a lack of available office space in prime CBDs across Europe is set to lead to a fall in take-up and further rent rises throughout 2018, adding to the 4.9 percent prime rental increase seen during 2017.


Set to soar: The booming future of the extended-stay accommodation sector

As anyone who regularly visits the Americas will know, extended-stay accommodation, such as serviced apartments and aparthotels, is a vital part of the hotel landscape. In comparison, visitors to the United Kingdom and continental Europe have been missing out on the benefits provided by the extended-stay sector, having to choose between either traditional hotel rooms or private holiday rental properties.


Up and down

Cushman & Wakefield’s latest Office space across the world report shows that Hong Kong has replaced London’s West End district as the world’s most expensive office market.


Turning Japanese

German Estate Group (GEG) has agreed to buy the landmark 29,000-square-metre Japan Center office tower in Frankfurt’s banking district from Commerz Real.


When it comes to property yields, there is no dogma

For centuries, European scholars used the phrase ipse dixit to end any discussion. The Latin expression literally means ‘he (the master) said it’ and they used it to justify any of their personal arguments — if they matched those previously used by Aristotle.
