Institutional property returns set to tumble

May 2002

The nominal returns of institutional property have been in a secular downswing for the last 20 years, and the expectation is that this year the trend will continue. However, institutional property’s average real total return of 5,2% p.a. for the last 25 years still beats the perform-ance of both long-term gilts and cash.

Property’s promising performance

May 2002

The South African government sold the first inflation-indexed long bond in March 2000. Bids ranged from 10% to 5%, and only a small amount of nearly R500 million of the R189 — maturing in 2013 — was allotted at the cut-off price of 6,5%. The second inflation-linked bond, the R197 (maturing in 2023), was issued in May 2001 and initially traded at a yield of about 5,7%.

Property forecasts for 2001

January 2001

Way back in 1978, when I started doing my first tentative property forecasts, life was simple. The forecaster could assume, and bank on, an inflation rate of 15% or so. All metropolitan areas and all property types were growing at a similar rate, or so we assumed, because nobody knew better for want of statistics. There was no decaying node, no crime crisis. There were no sharp hikes in municipal taxes or interest rates. Capitalisation rates were pretty stable. Hence the risk of owning property was low and property was still regarded as an inflation hedge by the investment community. And it was cheap to finance property with loan capital.

July 2001

We are all so engrossed in our daily lives that we far too often miss important milestones in our hectic lives. One such a milestone for Johannesburgers is the fast-approaching deadline to object to the new general valuation appraisal of their properties.
