Raine and Horne Commercial

Welcome Welcome to our third edition of Raine & Horne Commercial Insights for Spring 2016, where we bring you first-hand market commentary from experts across Australia. With the Federal election and its drawn out campaign finally behind us, demand for commercial property in many areas of Australia is soaring. The trifecta of historically low interest rates, a supportive Federal government and lacklustre returns on many other investment classes, is driving significant interest in commercial assets. Key buyers tend to be domestic and foreign investors, as well as self-managed super funds (SMSFs). However, Raine & Horne Commercial agents also report healthy activity among local businesses, many of which are using the low rate environment to own their premises. While the details differ between locations, the overarching theme is that quality properties in locations offering existing or planned infrastructure, are enjoying the lion’s share of demand. The bo om line is that now is the ideal time to review your existing commercial portfolio to add new assets, or if you’re a business owner, the conditions are ideal to upgrade your premises and take full advantage of the current favourable market conditions to strengthen your venture’s asset base. For more details about market conditions in your part of Australia, I encourage you to read this brochure, and then speak with a Raine & Horne Commercial property expert in your area.
