welcome to our second insite for At Barfoot & Thompson we o er so much more to Auckland than just real estate services. Since our last portfolio we have been active sponsors of both the 2017 World Masters Games and the recent British Lions Rugby Union tour. These two superb events have added so much to the vibrancy and economy of our great city. It s not only our great city that has been having a fantastic time we too have achieved a record first quarter for the number of sales and leasing transactions completed. At the time of our last Insite Portfolio we stated that we had negotiated 100 million in conditional contracts for Auckland CBD properties. We are pleased to report that as much as 84 million have now completed. The ability to connect with our huge network of colleagues who are so well represented in the new immigrant and o shore markets continues to prove a significant point of di erence between us and other commercial agencies. It is also becoming evident that there is a growing awareness that direct investment in Auckland commercial property o ers an uncomplicated combination of both yield and capital gain in the New Zealand property market. The availability of trading bank finance continues to challenge many participants but we are buoyed by the outlook for the macro market environment. The Reserve Bank of New Zealand notes that the outlook for global economic growth has increased and become more broad based over the past six months. This optimism from o shore continuing net migration and still further population growth underpins Auckland s growth trajectory. In our specific commercial property markets we are seeing vacancy rates across all sectors at historic lows. Rental levels for industrial properties are on the rise substantially pre-leased o ce development in the CBD and major centres such as Sylvia Park are also a feature of the market. Consumer confidence and spending is similarly improving the prospects for retail property whilst both occupiers and investors alike remain active. Within the context of this environment our team of 70 agents operating throughout the Auckland region have assembled this our second Insite portfolio for the year with its wide range of opportunities for your consideration. We look forward to introducing them to you and to assisting you in meeting your commercial property requirements.

Auckland Property Market MARKET COMMENTARY COURTESY OF IAN MITCHELL DIRECTOR LIVINGSTON & ASSOCIATES S trong growth in Auckland s economy has continued to drive the region s commercial and industrial property markets. Robust market fundamentals combined with low interest rates have helped maintain investor demand for properties. However the availability of credit is starting to impact on some potential purchasers limiting their ability to leverage deals. An overview of the key sectors within the market includes Auckland s strong regional economic growth has resulted in an additional 32 600 employees in the typical o ce occupying businesses over the last five years. This has increased the demand for o ce space and resulted in net absorption of 123 000 square metres in the CBD and 114 000 square metres in the metropolitan market over the last five years. Growth in demand combined with low vacancy rates has meant tenants increasingly have had to consider B grade space due to a lack of vacant supply in prime and A grade buildings or alternatively consider fringe city locations. The supply side of the market has started to respond to market pressures. Construction activity has increased as developers look to take advantage of low CBD vacancy rates and ongoing rental growth. There is now 82 000 square metres of o ce space under construction in the CBD and a further 73 000 square metres under construction outside the CBD. Once completed these buildings will place upward pressure on vacancy rates. Investor demand for good quality stock remains strong. The industrial market continues to experience strong underlying market fundamentals with increasing demand low vacancy rates increased rents and strong investor demand. However some market drivers are starting to change. Anecdotal evidence suggests banks are rationing credit to developers which is impacting on their ability to respond to demand. Land values remain high and combined with growth in construction costs this also means it is di cult for developers to create the additional space required. These are all typical characteristics of a late cycle upswing in market activity. The implications of the Unitary Plan are still flowing through into the market. In areas which have been rezoned Mixed Use commercial and industrial occupiers are now having to compete with residential developers for buildings. Landlords are now preferring to o er shorter term leases to position themselves so that they can take advantage of any future redevelopment opportunities. Consequently an increasing number of tenants are looking for owner occupier style opportunities so they can secure premises for their business in the medium to long term. Retail property continues to experience strong demand for space with limited space available for lease in prime locations. Ongoing population growth driven by historically high levels of net overseas migration gains combined with low interest rates and increased house prices should continue to support retail sales growth although this is unevenly distributed across di erent store types. Consumer confidence in Auckland remains strong supporting growth in retail sales. Investor appetite for retail investments has continued to outstrip supply of properties available for sale and yields continue to firm. New Zealand is entering its eighth year of sustained economic growth and is expanding at its non-inflationary potential. Key national economic growth drivers include accommodative monetary policy strong population and robust expansion in the tourism sector. Auckland region s economy is expected to continue to grow at above average rates supported by strong migration led population growth (currently 2.8% per annum) ongoing construction activity and infrastructure development and a robust tourism sector. Strong population growth has also supported significant growth in house values. 2.

There is still strong competition for modern well leased commercial buildings from a range of investors. Current low interest rates are continuing to support investor demand although anecdotal evidence suggests banks are starting to ration credit. Expectations of future increases in interest rates may impact on the market in the future. Table 2 summarises current yields by sector their outlook over the next six months and the level of investor demand. Table 2 Yields and Investor Demand by Sector Sector Typical Prime Quality Building Retail O ce Industrial 4.00% to 7.00% 5.50% to 6.75% 5.00% to 6.25% Yields Typical Secondary Quality Building 4.00% to 7.00% 6.50% to 7.50% 5.75% to 7.00% Outlook Steady Steady Steady Strong Strong Strong 2017 YTD 2015 Investor Demand The industrial investment market is very strong with limited good quality properties available for sale. Owner occupiers are also active in the market trying to secure long term premises with strong competition from alternative use development. Demand for o ce and retail building investments also remains strong with demand for properties exceeding the number of good quality investments being o ered for sale. Current yields demonstrate the strong competitive nature of the current market and are typical of late cycle conditions.
