Immobilien gelten in der Zeit sinkender Zinsen immer mehr als sichere Geldanlage. Die Nachfrage nach Immobilien steigt, die Preise scheinen zu explodieren. „Markt“ ging am 08.09.2014 der Frage nach, ob dieser Eindruck generell richtig ist und klärte über die Mechanismen des Immobilienmarkts auf. In der Sendung wagte der Journalist Herbert Kordes auch einen Blick in die Praxis des Immobilienhandels: Ein WDR-Team begleitete in Aachen-Walheim die gut besuchte OPEN HOUSE-Veranstaltung der PHI-Immobilienexpertin Johanna Ostlender.

ParkLake, a Sonae Sierra and Caelum Development project, located in the 3rd sector of Bucharest, has just signed a contract with Carrefour for the ownership and operation of the hypermarket type store in the shopping center. With this contract, Carrefour becomes a valuable partner in the ownership of the project.
With the opening scheduled for 2016, Carrefour proves its strong engagement and belief in the success of the project for which the work has started in January of this year. At the same time, ParkLake is making great progress in leasing, with other key brands having signed and/or committed about 65% of GLA at present.
Fernando Guedes de Oliveira, Sonae Sierra CEO, states: “The contract signed with Carrefour reinforces the quality offer of ParkLake. We are very happy to have the professional and internationally recognized retailer Carrefour as a key anchor and partner in the project. We have been very successfully working on the tenant mix of ParkLake and more advances in this area will soon be public, all of which will reinforce the flagship nature of this development”.
In addition, Caelum Development CEO, David Sharkey, comments: “This contract is part of a series of negotiations with several key tenants in order to create a unique tenant mix. We are delighted that Carrefour will be part of this project which guarantees high quality hypermarket operator. Construction is making progress, we are finished with the groundwork and now the structure works will begin – we are on target for our scheduled opening in 2016.”
Anca Damour, Property Division Director at Carrefour Romania, adds: “We are pleased to be part of this project that will strengthen Carrefour’s presence in the Eastern part of Bucharest. Carrefour thus continues its expansion plans on all formats and restates its trust in the growth of the Romanian market. We are confident that ParkLake will be a very successful project”.
ParkLake represents €180 million in investment and it will open doors in 2016. The shopping center will offer high quality retail on 70,000 m² GLA with around 200 shops and 2,600 spaces of underground car parking. The center will offer a unique, environmentally friendly design and a distinctive mix of leisure and sports features connected with the adjoining Titan Park.

TAG Immobilien AG (TAG) acquired a residential property portfolio with 1,503 housing units in Saxony at a purchase price of €37.8 million. The properties are distributed among the university cities of Freiberg, Chemnitz and Dresden.
The rentable area is approximately 85,000 m², the current rent at around €3.7 million per year. The portfolio, which was acquired by way of an asset deal, has a vacancy rate of nearly 13%, as the structural condition of the property – most of it from the 1970s and ’80s – is only partly renovated. TAG will therefore be able to exploit the value-add potential, which exists especially in Chemnitz, through investment and modernization measures in the years ahead. Its existing good local infrastructure puts TAG in a position to manage and develop the inventory efficiently.
In addition, at the end of August 2014 a portfolio in Dessau in Saxony-Anhalt with 270 extensively renovated units and an area of ??approximately 17,000 m² was purchased for €11.3 million. The inventory has undergone continuously and optimal maintenance since its renovation in 2000/2001, is equipped to a high technical standard, and has no vacancy. The transfer of ownership is scheduled for October 1, 2014, and of the portfolio located in Saxony for November 1, 2014.
Martin Thiel, Chief Financial Officer of TAG, commented on the acquisitions as follows: “The regional concentration of the new inventory fits perfectly into our existing management structure in these eastern German states. Both portfolios were acquired at multiples of 10.1 or 10.7 at a very good price. Funding will initially be covered by our own funds and will soon be refinanced at attractive conditions with long maturities. Both acquisitions demonstrate that, despite the selling opportunities we’ve noted, there is still growth potential in the market to further increase TAG’s operating cash flow and FFO.”

Is TEGoVA truly representative of the European valuation profession?
With 59 national associations of valuers from 32 countries, I think so.
What distinguishes TEGoVA from the other international valuation standard setters?
Fundamentally, our recognition is that the EU’s ‘ever closer Union’ extends to property markets and professionals. Some years back, we decided to adapt all our work and in particular the European Valuation Standards (EVS) to follow and enhance emerging EU real estate policy.
Can you give some examples?
EVS takes up all valuation-relevant definitions under EU law, starting with Market Value. We give great scope to EU-relevant concepts such as Mortgage Lending Value. We provide guidance to member states on adaptation of national valuation standards in accordance with the valuation provisions of the Mortgage Credit Directive, which Directive explicitly recommends, inter alia, EVS. EVS Applications help practicing valuers deal with cross-border valuation work and the valuation aspects of the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive, and help valuers to help their clients deal with the valuation fallout from the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive. We work with the European Commission on valuing the sustainability of buildings.
Isn’t the regulation of property essentially a national prerogative rather than the EU’s?
Key aspects of property regulation like housing policy are completely out of bounds for EU regulation, but many EU rules impact property. There are many fields where land and buildings get targeted directly by EU law because they are such an important part of the overall problem, such as buildings accounting for 40% of the EU carbon footprint or the real estate aspects of financial market reform and Banking Union.
Would you say that valuation is ‘going European’ as opposed to national?
It is more complex and enriching than that, not unlike the relationship between the EU and its member states. National valuation standards are as important as ever as they need to account for local rules and practice, but they also need to address the challenges faced by all Europeans and requiring a coordinated response, especially since the crisis which was the real EU property trigger. We need a common European valuation culture, a standards and qualification bottom line that European authorities, property investors and mortgage lenders can rely on and easily recognize across the Union.
So we can expect more and more EU regulation?
Not necessarily. You might even get less because EU legislation is a difficult process, hard to tinker with or reverse, so we need to find ways to free up markets and ensure a (high) level playing field for professional competence without bogging everything down in red tape. That’s what led to ‘EU Economic Governance’, a flexible, non-regulatory way for the member states to collectively figure out what each country has to do to rationalize failed economic policy so as to boost the European economy. That’s had tremendous real estate and valuation impact in terms of planning law reform, dismantling rent control, instituting recurrent property tax and updating cadastral values. It’s not a question of harmonizing national laws but of imbuing property markets and professionals with a kind of minimum European real estate and valuation culture.
Apart from European Valuation Standards, how does TEGoVA contribute to that?
With education and good practice, but above all, our ‘Recognized European Valuer’. 2300 professionals across Europe are entitled to put the acronym ‘REV’ next to their name, a common high qualification recognized by foreign and local investors alike, endorsed by the European Property Federation and required by increasing numbers of banks for the valuers they employ.
Have the European authorities recognized TEGoVA’s work?
Yes, the latest being that the European Central Bank in its current bank Asset Quality Review stipulates that where a conflict is seen between EVS and other international standards, EVS will apply.

AMF Fastigheter, leading Swedish property investor and developer, has unveiled the biggest hotel contract in the history of Stockholm with Petter Stordalen – owner of Nordic Choice Hotels. The contract comprises two hotels with two disparate concepts, business and boutique.
The hotels will cover an area of 30,000 m² on a 20-year lease term. It will provide a total of 540 rooms for AMF Fastigheter’s latest mixed-use 130,000 m² development Urban Escape Stockholm.
Urban Escape Stockholm, one of the most significant urban regeneration projects currently under way in a European Capital City, will seamlessly integrate the wider business ecosystem of the Swedish Capital. Once completed, the development will comprise 62,000 m² of central, modern, flexible office space and 38,000 m² of retail and leisure in addition to the 30,000 m² of hotel and conference space.
Mats Hederos, CEO at AMF Fastigheter, comments: “After extensive analysis, we believe this combination of hotels, services and offices, integrated with a unique retail and leisure offer, will provide our investors with the best returns. It is the largest project we have undertaken and we are certain that it will safeguard our development pipeline for the future. With an average return of seven per cent in the last five years across all of AMF Pension’s investment streams, our property portfolio has produced returns of 6.6 and 7.2 per cent in the last 10 and 20 years respectively – highlighting property’s effectiveness at balancing a capital portfolio.
“Petter Stordalen’s experience perfectly complements our vision of creating a dynamic, multifunctioning space that fosters the creativity and efficiency of emerging domestic and international talent. These hotel concepts are critical to the success of a development that will redefine what a city can provide to the modern professional.”
Petter Stordalen, owner of Nordic Choice Hotels, says: “We are proud to be part of the most important urban development project to have taken place in Stockholm since the 1960s. Our ambition is to become market leader in all major cities across Scandinavia and this deal represents our progress in achieving this.”
Construction on Urban Escape Stockholm is scheduled to commence by the end of this year, with the hotels opening by early 2017. It will involve the redevelopment of a forgotten part of Central Stockholm, across the whole city block between Regeringsgatan and Brunkebergstorg. It is the next phase in Stockholm’s evolution and will revitalize one of the most renowned public squares and further enhance the connectivity, attractiveness and flow of Stockholm’s city center.
