The UK Property Investment Market - March 2013
Prime yields were stable last month, averaging 5.83% across all sectors. This is a 394bp premium to 10 yr bonds, a fact not lost on investors. Demand has increased since the start of the year and a more serious intent is being seen from some players. Indeed, in the search for stock and yield, more investors are slowly and carefully relaxing their risk controls and activity is increasing as a result, with volumes to-date up 11% on the same time last year thanks to a strong start in the retail market in particular.
