New Market Report: Israel Real Estate Report Q1 2013

Print article Print article
2013-02-01 18:11:24 - Fast Market Research recommends "Israel Real Estate Report Q1 2013" from Business Monitor International, now available

The Israel Real Estate report examines the commercial office, retail, industrial and construction sectors throughout the country in the context of an economy beset by elevated security risks and increasing concerns of a property bubble.

With a focus on the three principal cities of Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Haifa, the report covers the rental market performance in terms of rates and yields over the past 18 months - including newly collected data covering H112 - and examines how best to maximise returns in the commercial real estate market, while minimising investment risk and exploring the impact of infrastructure initiatives on a market characterised by an optimistic five-year outlook. The key growth areas, driven partially by market consolidation, are also explored, along

with a detailed look at the country's business environment.

Key Points

* Elevated risks of instability in Israel's neighbours, including Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and the West Bank and Gaza, have raised political risks, and investors' risk appetite may be tempered by the potential for a spill over of instability into the country's borders.
* House prices in Israel have risen rapidly in recent years, raising concerns that a bubble has formed in the property market. However, an increase in supply, coupled with macro-prudential measures on the part of the government designed to bring down prices, have seen the market cooling in the past few months. As a result, a sharp drop in prices is unlikely at this stage.
* Israel's parliamentary elections are anticipated at the beginning of February 2013, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appearing to be the front-runner at this stage. As the approval of the 2013 budget will be delayed as a result, Israel's budget deficit will remain elevated. Moreover, under a scenario whereby Netanyahu is re-elected, his hawkish stance on Iran's nuclear programme could meet less domestic opposition, but an attack is not inevitable in 2013, as international pressure against military intervention will remain strong
* Israel's economy will slow in H212 and early 2013, as the government is set to rein in spending, while leading indicator data paint a somewhat negative picture for private consumption and fixed investment. As a result, we have lowered down our forecasts for real GDP to grow 2.8% and 3.3% in 2012 and 2013 respectively, from 2.9% and 3.5% previously.
* An announcement by The Israel Land Administration (ILA) that around 35,000 homes are to be developed on land formerly leased to the Defence Forces (IDF) signifies the Israeli government's commitment to lowering house prices in light of growing domestic unrest. The allocation of land for commercial development is part of a broader raft of policies aimed at stemming inflation and providing affordable housing, with the Bank of Israel also using monetary incentives to discourage certain types of mortgage lending. The moves support our view that the construction industry will continue to grow at above the 3% level into 2013, yet cool over the long run, as house prices stabilise and fixed investment flows tail off.
