New Green Street CPPI Points to Lower Pan-European Property Values
London, United Kingdom, 05 May 2020 -- Green Street’s newly launched Pan-European Commercial Property Price Index (CPPI) decreased by 7.5% from its recent pre-Covid peak. The decline in the index, which measures the pricing of a broad swath of Pan-European commercial properties, was due to retail and office values. Industrial values are up slightly over the last quarter, but still 1% lower from the recent peak.
“The commercial real estate transaction market has largely come to a standstill as buyers and sellers adjust their underwriting expectations and try to agree on a fair price,” said Peter Papadakos, Managing Director at Green Street Advisors. “During periods of wide bid-ask spreads, asset values often move closer to the bid than the ask. There is little to no investor demand in the retail sector and waning investor demand for sub-prime office buildings today. However, high-quality office and most industrial assets are still likely to trade at punchy capital values per square meter.”
