The Economist: From depression to bubble within a few months...or are we only at early stage recovery?
This month my financier colleague is reflecting on how quickly sentiment has changed in property and how we have moved, in some people’s eyes, from depression to bubble in a matter of a few months. The reality is that in most markets we are actually in an early stage recovery. That is not to say that real progress has not been made on the UK economy front, but that economic recovery is only just making itself felt on occupier markets. The onset of falling yields in the absence of much evidence of rental growth, outside of central London, is one thing that worries commentators and leads to talk of property bubbles. Yields falling in advance of rental growth are, however, nothing unusual and are exactly what we would expect in a forward looking market. This week’s blog recaps on what has been achieved on the economy recovery front, what the latest indicators are showing and touches on what this will mean for occupier demand and rental growth.
