25 Predictions for 2014

2014 Global PredictionsColliers International has just released its 2014 Global Predictions Report providing key insights and trends impacting the world of commercial real estate in 2014 and beyond. 2014 promises to be an interesting year in the commercial property sector. For much of the world, even in many emerging economies, GDP growth this year is expected to be below 5 percent as a norm. Meanwhile, investors driven, in part, by expected changes in U.S. economic policy, will be active in seeking out opportunities in new markets in what is becoming an increasingly competitive landscape. Of particular interest to government-leased property investors, the report predicts greater demand in secondary markets, which are home to much of the government-leased inventory, including a large number of federal properties.

Region-by-region, Colliers’ 2014 Global Predictions Report examines the key drivers and industry trends including:

  • The top performing U.S. property sector
  • An expected boom in global gateway cities
  • The continued flow of outbound capital from China
  • The resurgence of the European economy
  • Where REITs will expand
  • The return of domestic investment in Australia
