The slides which follow provide recent market data on the global and US market. We have found that most all major agencies are reporting definite recovery trends. The current market data plots a beginning of the recovery bell curve and it is at this point in the curve where values step-up quickly. Now is the time to move.Market research concludes that the multi-family sector has already turned the recovery corner and continues an upward trend. Today, the sectors with the highest return potential are office, retail and industrial. The typical acquisition for the Western Region Fund will be in these high potential sectors.Global and national research concludes the western region exhibits high return potential with manageable risks. Within the western region, we have indentified several major metropolitan areas for acquisitions including Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and San Diego.
The following slides address Key Global Highlights and summarize the global economy.The European national still battle market instability, while the U.S. economy is favored by investors and Asia markets continue to perform well.Global capital markets are robust as money gravitates to the U.S. in anticipation of a stronger dollar and promising economic growth.Investors move their funds to major cities which are viewed as safe havens for their investments.Although bank balance sheet are improving, debt financing lags behind growing demand.Capital appreciation is slowing, especially in Europe, as yields flatten.Office leasing in major cities, especially coast cities driven by import or export trade, do well, but other inland areas remain stagnate.However, overall global leasing volumes are likely to be stable through the first part of 2012 with likely growth in the third and fourth quarters.Vacancies in most sectors continue to edge downward.The global office index grew in 2011 and is anticipated to continue in Asia and the U.S. while Europe may have a much slower pace.The office, retail and warehouse markets appear to be driven by the technology, energy and commodity sectors.International retailer demand, especially in Asia, remains robust.Hotel transactions held steady in 2011 and are expected to remain steady through 2012.The U.S. apartment market is considered to be one the higher performer as the U.S. recovery jumps back quicker than anticipated.
A. This chart of gross domestic product projections for 2012 depicts the recent change in basis point for major economies. The GDP for each country, with the exception of Japan and the U.S., has drop 10 to 110 basis points. And the U.S. has reported the largest positive gain of 60 basis points.
This chart depicts the real estate health of major cities around the world at the end of the fourth quarter 2011. A pre-emptive tightening of monetary policy in many economies last year is now seen as premature. The bias in 2012 may be toward monetary loosening.
The following rental clocks summarize the global office, retail and industrial sectors. On this office clock, only Singapore and Hong Kong are perceived to have falling rental values. All other cities are bottoming out or on positive growth trends.
On this retail rental clock, only Singapore is perceived to have falling rental values. The majority of other cities are experiencing positive growth trends.
On this industrial rental clock, most all cities are poised well for 2012. Please review the global market section of the investment memorandum for a more comprehensive understanding of those factors influencing the global market.
This portion of the presentation provides summary statistics for the U.S. market. Although there are mixed reports of low employment is some areas, other areas of the country are already back to pre 2007 levels. This graph of private / public hiring clearly illustrates a rebounding market. The data represents a full cycle from 2007, dipping in 2009 and recovery in earlier 2011 with stable hiring thereafter. This trend is expected to continue through 2012 and beyond.
The graph illustrates the one year change of office employment in major U.S. cities from the fourth quarter 2010 to the fourth quarter 2011. Those cities associated with high-tech and energy-based industries exhibit the highest degree of positive change. This is a strong indicator of the high-tech and energy-based sector’s impact on today’s economy.
The energy, high-tech and office using sectors out performed the overall economy in 2011 and are expected to continue to have a positive impact on market growth.
The U.S. economic production forecast is an important indicator for gauging economic growth. This graph illustrates several vital factors. First, there is a heighten level of exports which will be supported by the administration for at least the next five years. The projected level of exports and industrial production is expected to remain strong for the next three years and beyond. And finally, portal cities, like Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Las Angeles and San Diego are likely to benefit the most from this trend.
This graph is a barometer of the change in average asking rents per square foot over the last twenty years. The graph start with the recovery of the 1992 real estate cycle and then shows the depth of the 2002 cycle and lowest declines in last twenty years in the 2009 real estate cycle. But more importantly, this graph illustrates a stable growth trend commencing in 2011 which is anticipated to continue in the same projectory for the next several years.
In closing the summary for the U.S. market report, we offer the U.S. economy clock as of the fourth quarter 2011. The clock visibly illustrates a recovering market with the majority of major U.S. cities in the rising quadroon. Please review the U.S. market section of the investment memorandum for a more comprehensive understanding of those factors influencing the market.
The research presented in earlier slides lead to the conclusion and selection of the U.S. western region as the target region for this fund. The research also aided in the selection of cities whose economies are influenced by high-tech, energy, exports and other factors which have a positive impact on the metropolitan area. The western region includes the states of Washington, Oregon, Nevada and California. Within these states, six metropolitan areas have been selected as target cities for real estate acquisitions. The metropolitan areas include, but are not limted to, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Anegles, Las Vegas and San Diego.
The next few slides provide a summary of those factors influencing the selection of each target city. In Seattle, where leasing activity is rebounding in the Class A office sector the key indicators illustrate: Tourism and leasing volume are up while rents have remained flat, landlord concessions and sales volume are down and construction deliveries and starts are flat.The Seattle property clock indicates the Seattle commercial business district is on the rising and the Bellevue commercial business district is headed into a rising market.
In the Portland market, which is driven by logistics and high-tech, the key indicator illustrate:Vacancy is dropping while leasing activity and rents continue to increase, employment is up while its counterpart, unemployment, is dropping, and new construction and personal income are both up.The Portland property clock indicates the commercial business district is rising and the suburbs are close behind.
In the San Francisco market, where high-tech demand is producing some of the highest recovery rents and net absorption than other metropolitan areas, the key indicators illustrate:Vacancy is down as leasing activity and rents trend upward, employment is up and unemployment files are down, new construction is flat and personal income is increasing.The San Francisco property clock indicates the commercial business district is on the rise and now is the time to buy.
In the Los Angeles market, where recovery is mixed across the submarkets, the key indicators illustrate:The Los Angeles property clock indicates the office, retail and industrial sectors are prime candidates for investment while the multi-family and hotel sectors steadily spiraling upward.
In the Las Vegas market, the city is quietly making a major come back. This can be seen in the key indicators: visitor volume and gaming revenues have been consistently rising quarter after quarter, population and employment are trending upward as unemployment drops, new construction starts are flat and personal income is up.The Las Vegas property clock indicates the city is already on the rise and now is the time buy.
