Strong investor demand looks set to drive competitive auction results

Colliers to auction six exciting assets via its national auction portfolio.

The momentum which materialised mid last year in the Sydney Metro commercial market has continued throughout 2016, with increased leasing and investment activity causing an uplift in effective rents and compression in yields, due to a number of underlying factors.

According to the latest data from Colliers International’s Metro Office research report, some of these factors include a historically high infrastructure spend with the state and federal government’s commitment of $78.4 billion allocated over the next four years and the substantial withdrawals for residential and infrastructure projects which have forced tenants back into the market to vie for a diminishing availability space.

According to Matthew Meynell, Head of Investment Services, Australia for Colliers International, “There was over 43,000sqm of commercial space withdrawn in the first half of the year so this increased tenant demand and limited space have both incited effective rental growth and gross incentives have declined by as much as five per cent in certain markets.

“Notwithstanding this, the supply pipeline remains constrained with changes to current planning regimes underway and the council amalgamation process has raised uncertainty over key issues like zoning, height, and FSRs allowances”.

On Wednesday 21 September 2016, Colliers International will bring six properties from NSW and QLD to auction via its quarterly national auction portfolio.
