Û

The expectations for total return in coming years have gained a small increase in this year’s last consensus forecast. The expectations for the coming years have been upgraded with 0.1 percentage points, which means an expectation of 5.4 percent in total return for 2014, 5.7 percent for 2015, and 5.6 percent for the period covering 2013-2017. The increased expectations in the forecast do not compensate for the decrease seen in the latest quarters. In a year, the expectations for 2013 and 2014 decreased with 0.6 percentage points. This quarter, the participants expect a total return of 5.0 percent in 2013, which is unchanged compared to last quarter. For five quarters the expectations for total return in 2013 have not increased.

The average total return based on the replies is presented in the table.

Expectations on total return are still lower than the historic total return in the period 2000-2007 20% 18% 16% 14% 12% 10%

Positive development for office, retail, and residential

8%

The expectations for capital value, occupied space, and market rent for both office, retail, and residential have developed in a positive direction since last forecast. Only industry is still standing out with a negative trend. For office, it is especially the increase in capital value, which is noticeable. Compared to last quarter, the expectations have increased with 14 indicator points. The negative expectations from last quarter with regards to a small decrease in market rent in the sectors office and retail have now turned into an expectation of a small positive increase in market rent.

The participants have answered: ‘very low’, ‘lower’, ‘unchanged’, ‘higher’, ‘much higher’. The answers are given a value in order to obtain an indicator between -100 and 100. An indicator of 100 is identical to everyone having answered ‘much higher’, and -100 is identical to everyone having answered ‘very low’. An indicator of 0 indicates unchanged expectations. For example an indicator of 15.2 is feasible by 15.2 percent of the participants answering ‘much higher’ and the remaining answers are ‘unchanged’.

WEB REPORT

Capital value has the best development in Copenhagen

Expectations are still positive with regards to residential. We have never seen such a high indicator value as the expectations for development in capital value for residential this quarter. The indicator value is 37.0, which is an increase of 4.5 indicator points compared to last quarter. 78 percent of the participants believe in increased capital value for residential the coming year.

Light green Copenhagen

Behind the figures Although the expectations for 2013 are unchanged at 5.0 percent in total return, it does not mean that the participants do not change their expectations (compared to last quarter). Among the participants this and last quarter we find 85 percent, who has changed their expectations to the total return in 2013 or the years ahead. Among these 85 percent, participants have both down- and upgraded their expectations to total return. If you only look at 2013, the absolute average change is 0.4 percentage points for participants, who gave input to both this and last quarter.

Û

Almost all participants in the forecast (96 percent) are of the opinion that capital value will increase more in Copenhagen than in Aarhus, the Triangle Region in Jutland and the rest of the country. Compared to last quarter the Triangle Region in Jutland has lost a little when compared to Copenhagen, Aarhus, and the rest of the country. The major part of the participants gives input each and every quarter.

The map shows which regions in Denmark that have the highest value growth compared to other regions. We have asked about the Triangle Region in Jutland (Fredericia, Kolding, and Vejle), Copenhagen, Aarhus and all other regions as one region. From the replies, we have created an indicator. If the area is light green, at least 70 percent of the participants have agreed that this region is doing best compared to other regions.

46 market players participated in this forecast. 48 percent of the participants are property owners. Furthermore, 24 percent are commercial brokers, 9 percent are banks/mortgage providers, and 20 percent are other players.

About the Consensus Forecast These results from October 2013 are based on data collected and released by the Danish Property Federation. The objective is to create a more transparent property market. The Consensus Forecast is published on a quarterly basis and is very dependant on the participating companies’ good will to report data every quarter. Without these companies the Consensus Forecasts would never have been possible.
