Miami growth built on equity with 27 conseutive months of price growth

Brisbane’s rapid growth has driven eight consecutive quarters of growth with the population projected to more than double by 2061

Both prime and outer London say above average y-o-y growth, at 7.5% and 11% respectively

Strength of international currency agains Yen makes it a good time for investors to consider Japan

United Arab Emirates, Dubai, 09 July 2014: IP Global, the full-service property investment company, is pleased to announce the Global Real Estate Outlook Q2 2014.

North America

The US has been experiencing steady growth over the last couple of years. The south-eastern Florida city of Miami has seen prices rise for 27 consecutive months. The market has become increasingly more stable as the new growth is built largely on equity, rather than credit with 62.5% of all Miami condominium closings completed in cash. The median price remains low at USD 244,000, which offers plenty of room for growth and lower entry costs than many comparable US metropolitan centres at just USD 244,000. Gross yields are highly competitive at 7.3%, which is among the highest levels seen in the major cities of the US. Meanwhile in Chicago, the growing technology sector, which includes the expansion of Google’s Chicago operations, is leading to a surge in employment, which is expected to lead to increased rental demand. This rising demand will further improve an already good vacancy rate of just 3.8%, given the city’s severe residential inventory shortage.

Paul Preston, Director and Head of IP Global Middle East commented: “The US property market recovery continues to gather momentum and Miami in particular is looking increasingly solid. We’re confident that now is an excellent time to enter this maket, and are focusing on the opportunities in the financial district in the heart of the city’s downtown area. Our other key city in the USA is Chicago as its supply/demand imbalance is an attractive prospect for investors. Also, given the excellent reputation of our first Chicago project at 235 West Van Buren, we’re currently exploring the city for more high-quality developments.”

Of course, safe-haven New York is still considered a top investment destination, with its capacity to hold value during difficult economic periods. In the year to Q1 2014, the recovery led to a 13.4% increase which has been reflected in the strong returns shown by IP Global investments in Manhattan and New Jersey, which recent valuation data shows have seen average growth of 28% since H2 2011.

Asia Pacific

Sydney was traditionally the first port of call for property investors, but IP Global considers the typically popular CBD to lack investment value; attention is far better focused on the inner city finge areas. Another city on the east coast, Brisbane, is attracting all the attention at the moment, having seen seen price growth across eight consecutive quarters since Q1 2012. The economy is booming and the metropolitan population is projected to more than double by 2061 but the increasing demand is coming up against a drastic undersupply. IP Global is taking advantage of this and recommends it as a top investment destination and has launched two projects there in the past eight months, both of which are located just north of the CBD in Fortitude Valley/Newstead.

Melbourne has also shown remarkably stable growth, with average per-annum price increases of 5% over the past decade. The impressive performance is driven by strong local population growth, which is seeing 1,500 new residents being added to the Greater Melbourne area every week. In the past 12 months to March 2014, prices rose by a significant 8.4% across the city. Investors should focus on areas close to government-supported sites such a transport hubs and the city’s univresities, for example IP Global’s first Melbourne project adjacent to Monash University Caulfield campus.

Considering locations further east, the strength of the international currency against the Yen makes it a very good time for investors to be looking at Japan. It is recommended that investors look beyond the country’s large metropolitan areas and consider the island of Hokkaido, where the boutique resort of Niseko continues to grow in reputation and populariy with international visitor numbers up 143% during the 2013/14 season.


London retains its reputation as a global investment safe haven, remaining at the forefront of the world’s leading economies. Growth in London continues to fan out from central areas, with investors showing equal appetite for low yielding opportunities in up-and-coming fringe locations. Both prime and outer London saw above average growth year on year, at 7.5% and 11% respectively. Infrastructure development, particularly the imminent introduction of the Crossrail system, are making hotspots out of previously unpopular areas.

Two other British cities on IP Global’s exploration list are Manchester and newcomer Slough. The low prices and good connections to Central London and Heathrow available in Slough, with a new Crossrail station in 2018/19, have attracted the attention of a number of the world’s leading companies in recent years. The Slough Trading Estate is Europe’s largest commercial precinct under single ownership and the area is a key driver of wealth in Britain’s south-east. Further north, the UK’s second largest metropolitan area, Manchester, is firmly at the top of the list for an investor looking to stay ahead of the UK property market, having seen prices over the past decade increase by an average of 6% per annum and the city was recently ranked fourth in HSBC’s top ten of UK buy to let hotspots.

Meanwhile on mainland Europe, Berlin retains its save haven status with GDP growth five times higher than the rest of Eurozone through 2013. Overall, Berlin is still compartitively undervalued and with an average residential prices of EUR 77,000, the city boast an investment case that is becoming increasingly difficult to ignore.
