Strong yields spark Sydney’s commercial property market: Raine & Horne Commercial

Healthy yields of up to 10% are encouraging savvy buyers to return to commercial property after a GFC-inspired hiatus, says leading commercial property group Raine & Horne Commercial.

Raine & Horne Commercial CEO Angus Raine said the best office, retail and industrial premises under $5 million were being snapped up quickly by self-managed super funds and owner-occupiers.

“Since late 2010 we have seen increased numbers at our City Auction Rooms, while clearance rates are at healthy levels," Mr Raine said.

“Additionally, the attractive yield spread on offer from 5% to 10% where there is a development upside, is proving a significant lure for investors.”

In response to the demand for quality Sydney commercial property, Raine & Horne Commercial is staging its inaugural ‘Under the Hammer Auction Day’ on Tuesday 12 April 2011, at City Auction Centre, 55 Harrington Street, Sydney.

Starting at 10.30am, the multi-property commercial auction will showcase seven commercial properties from locations such as inner-city Annandale and Blacktown in the western suburbs.

“There will be a childcare centre, an industrial development, as well as a mixed residential/retail property up for grabs,” Mr Raine said.

According to Mr Raine, the auction represents an exciting first for Raine & Horne Commercial, and will introduce investors and owner-occupiers to several fantastic entry-level fringe CBD properties that would be an impressive addition to any investment portfolio.

“Whether you’re looking to secure an affordable investment for a self-managed super fund, an industrial development opportunity, or a shop and residence to own and occupy, the auction will have something for everyone,” he said.

“The fact that we will be bringing this fantastic range of properties together under one roof again highlights the strength and breadth of the Raine & Horne Commercial brand in the Sydney commercial property market.”

April’s auction is expected to be the first of many, with Raine & Horne Commercial planning a quarterly combined commercial auction at the City Auction Centre.
