On investing in REITs - drivers of capital gains vs drivers of profitability
An analysis of South African REITs performance, firstly from a capital gains perspective, and secondly, from a profitability perspective. The analysis is aimed at outlining the investment value of the REITs as well as their long term potential in the current climate. We also take a look at the characteristics which produce the best and worst performance in the local REITs that can inform investors when making a selection against the listed property trusts in the economy.
Johannesburg Retail Property Market Overview Q1 2015
South African consumers have seen a more challenging start to the new year, putting a dampener on the prospects of retail sales growth. However, the outlook is not likely to be balanced across all sectors with centres located in more affluent areas expected to perform much better than those in lower income areas. Developer confidence remains high on the back of a growing city and the longer term outlook is more encouraging for investors.
Johannesburg Office Market Overview Q1 2015
The overall vacancy rate in Johannesburg showed a marginal increase to 11.9% in Q1 2015, up from 11.3% a year ago in Q1 2014. However, this is attributable to an increase in supply rather than a decline in demand as tenants show an increased preference for newer Grade P accommodation. The development pipeline will see an additional 430,000m2 being added to overall stock within the next two years.
Johannesburg Industrial Property Market Overview Q1 2015
Industrial occupation has continued to be supported by local trade activity in Q1 2015, despite it having come under increased pressure in recent months. Hence the average rental rate for industrial properties remained largely unchanged at R48.0/m2 in Q1 2015.
Economic conditions forewarn of a further deterioration in industrial activity in the economy. Nevertheless, this presents an opportune moment for tenants to position themselves for the long term.
Cape Town Office Market Overview Q1 2015
The first quarter of 2015 has seen a continuation of flat market conditions in the Cape Town office sector. Pressure on rental rates is most visible in Grade P properties and it is anticipated that low demand will see rental rates declining in some of the best buildings. The overall vacancy rate in Cape Town remained stable at 9.3% in Q1 2015.

Commercial property investments decelerate as property owners hold on to value
Commercial property investment activity slowed down in 2014. The overriding factor which contributed to low investment activity was the low supply of investment properties.
