“the Market for Commercial Property Is Efficient” Discuss

...“THE MARKET FOR COMMERCIAL PROPERTY IS EFFICIENT” DISCUSS By: AKINDELE, DOLAPO BOSE Word Count: 2,807 FACULTY OF BUILT ENVIRONMENT UNIVERSITY OF THE WEST OF ENGLAND BRISTOL 1.0 INTRODUCTION The commercial property, as we aware, is one aspect of the property market but with a much increasing velocity, it has fast become a market to be reckoned with. Not only is it viewed as just a market type, it is now a major consideration for investors. Direct investment by UK institutions and overseas investors, attracted by the long leases and secure income, have poured huge investment into commercial property, and the market has provided an enormous valuable alternative to gilts and equities (Harris R. 2005). Though the property industry will appear to be insignificant when compared to other sectors with only two property companies, Land Securities and Canary Wharf, qualifying for inclusion in the FTSE 100, the top 100 companies by market capitalisation (value of shares), as at April 2001, importance is placed on the commercial property sector (Freeman, 2005). The property market is also of consideration to the government as well because as much as it is contributing to the economic growth of the nation – as at the end of 2003, the total value of the commercial property stock was a whopping £611bn (RICS, 2005) – it is beclouded by its own issues and failures. This purpose of the paper is to examine the commercial property market, its dynamism i.e.......

Analysis of Property Crimes

...Overview: This paper presents statistics on major factors that affects the property crime rates in the U.S. Abstract: The property crime rates of 45.7% occurs more in urban areas. About 16.8% of the crimes were committed by high school dropouts and only 0.4% of the crimes that occurs were related to the population density. The type of property crimes that happens includes larceny-theft, home burglary, home invasion, grand theft auto, forgery, and arson. These types of crimes may be caused by factors such as high school dropouts, the population density per square mile, and people living in urban areas. The paper will focus on the crimes against properties such as larceny-theft, home burglary, and grand theft auto, not a person. Crimes of property happen more often than other crimes. Larceny is a type of theft when someone takes something that does not belong to them. Home burglary is breaking into a private resident with the intent of stealing something. Grand theft auto is an act of stealing a motor vehicle. Are the property crime rates higher in urban areas? Does the level of education have any effect on the percentage of crimes that are happening? How about the percentage of people living in a population per square mile? All of these factors may play an important role with the number of crimes that are happening today. Method: Louis J. Moritz, an Operations Manager, collected data from a variety of U.S. government sources. He provided a sample data set......

...Table of Contents Introduction 2 Changes in the market 3 Economical 5 Political-legal 7 Regulatory pressure 8 Conclusion 8 References 11 Introduction The UK property market has experienced remarkable development in the last 50 years; with a notable shift in the trends investors tend to use, (Halifax, 2010). The housing market in the UK has seen great change when comparing the figures over the last 15 years. According to Beckett (2014), the rise of housing prices have led to the creation of a good investing opportunity both in the residential and in the commercial property market. The housing boom has been in chaos since the market crashed in the 2007, but as many industries continue to struggle, the UK housing industry is to experience a recovery, many experts speculate. This is due to the increase in the need for housing due to the increase in demand of properties, both for commercial and residential use; and the decrease in supply. Even with most individuals in the UK still struggling to recover from the 2007 market crash, market watchers estimate that the base line is bound to increase and revive the industry. The property industry though has been experiencing a constant boom through the years. A survey by De Montfort University in 2005 showed that the development finance was at £23 billion; this was up from £9 billion, 6 years earlier, (Gibertson, 2006). The trend has been in constant growth despite a few setbacks due to the strain in the economic......

Analysis of Hong Kong Prime Retail Property Market

...ANALYSIS OF HONG KONG PRIME RETAIL PROPERTY MARKET In analyzing Hong Kong’s retail property market, in particular the prime shopping mall segment, Michael Porter’s Five Forces Analysis Model is used. According to Porter, corporations in any industry are constrained from maximizing profit not just by rivalry with their competitors but by four further competitive forces. These five forces shape competitive intensity. They are: • Rivalry among competitors in the industry; • Threat of new entrants; • Bargaining power of suppliers; • Bargaining power of buyers; and • Threat of substitute products. Below is the analysis: • Rivalry among Established Competitors: Medium Pressure o Currently, major shopping malls in Hong Kong are primarily managed and owned by a handful of Chinese landlords, including Sun Hung Kai Properties, Henderson Land, Wharf Holdings, Hysan Development, Sino Land, Hang Lung Properties, as well as a few British-backed landlords such as Hongkong Land and Swire Properties. o Retailer demand is focused on prime locations in urban areas rather than secondary streets. These most sought-after locations are top choices for both global and local retailers seeking a presence in the city. Fierce retailer competition for the best locations means that landlords of prime shopping malls are allowed for jockeying for a better market position by select picking their right tenants and by upgrading their tenant and trade mix profiles. o With a common focus on......

It will allow us to enter new geographic markets, that is, India or China and gain new technological knowledge access to greater resources, including technology and sharing of risks with them.
