Graduated rents increasingly displace indexed office leases

The increased inflation rates are likely to lead to a noticeable rent increase for many office users. According to an analysis by JLL, almost all office leases concluded in recent years contain so-called adjustment clauses. "These are partly graduated rents, but more than 80 percent agreements that provide for the adjustment of the rent to the development of the general cost of living," explains Helge Scheunemann, Head of Research JLL Germany. In almost all cases, the consumer price index of the Federal Statistical Office is used as a basis. JLL has evaluated indexed leases with a total area of more…

Office market forecast: The uncertainty is leaving its mark

While the real estate market environment is influenced by a wide range of risk factors, the overall view of the office real estate markets is characterized by stable expectations. Sentiment-based data currently reflects the prevailing uncertainty arising from a variety of causes. The model-based forecasts that are included in the result of the gif/CRES consensus office market forecast also currently show the influence of the uncertain market environment. However, this influence has so far been limited to the fact that the forecasts are no longer as positive as in the past. However, there are no signs of a crisis scenario.…

Outlook for the German Office Market in 2022

The mood in the office market continues to be ambivalent: on the one hand, the fundamental data in the major markets continue to show a largely robust picture, on the other hand, the discussion about the effects of working from home continues to cause uncertainty. A slump in office workers – one of the most important variables for a well-founded assessment of prospects – is not expected; By the way, home office employees count. And even if the very full new building pipeline for offices in Germany currently has a higher proportion of speculative space than in previous years, this…

Office markets: Will action follow the wait-and-see stance?

JLL’s quarterly VICTOR Prime Office report was treading water in Q1 2021 with only +0.6% performance growth. The indicator for Germany’s top real estate hub locations that were surveyed for the report came in at 222.6 at the end of March 2021. “The slowdown triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic is also leaving its mark on the first few months of 2021. Neither the leasing markets nor from the investment markets sent out tangible signals in terms of price performance in Q1,” says Ralf Kemper, Head of Valuation & Transaction Advisory JLL Germany. Investors continue to watch the leasing markets closely.…

Remote working study: Who benefits?

Whether people working remotely are effective depends less on the job itself and more on their situation at home. This is one of the findings of a broad-based study carried out by economists at TU Darmstadt. The survey takes a look at employee situations as well as the opportunities and risks that come with working from home. Their conclusion: Introducing remote working on a large scale could potentially divide society. Working from home first became a topic of interest to the general public during the first lockdown of the Covid-19 pandemic. Researchers at the Department of Real Estate and Construction…

January: Tangible factors determine office property market

The pandemic will have an impact on the office market – but how? Discussions often focus on the topic of home offices and the change of workplace concepts. But other factors weigh heavier. Opinions differ widely on how the Covid 19 pandemic will affect the office market. Mostly, however, it is about the establishment of home offices or mobile working and the accompanying change in workplace concepts. The conclusions range from a swan song for the office to calls for more decentralised office space close to home. Our autumn forecast has therefore focused on the elementary connection between overall economic…

Financing banks with a cautious stance towards new property developments, media coverage of the benefits of remote working and…

Workplace regulations need updating

The increasing digitalization of organizational structures at companies as a result of the corona crisis will impact future space requirements in the office segment. “Reduced occupancy counts in office concepts points to increasingly flexible working arrangements and will lead to reduced space requirements. However, we won’t be seeing oversupply, as vacancy rates are already low in many German cities,” says Andreas Wende, Chairman of the ZIA Office Property Committee. “The already tangible trend towards increasing workplace flexibility is likely to accelerate because of the corona pandemic.” According to industry experts, office take-up is already down by up to 25% (Q1…

Office leasing market at a stable high

The economic slowdown also hit the job market in late 2019. For the first time in six years, Germany saw a month-over-month increase in its unemployment figures in December. The country recorded 47,000 more cases of unemployment than in November 2019 and the unemployment rate rose by 0.1 percentage points to 4.9%. Although this increase is only slight and the German labor market remains strong, the trend also shows that companies are currently seeking fewer new employees, which could mark a turning point in Germany’s employment landscape. The German economy is currently characterized by mixed signals. On the one hand,…

Wellbeing at the office

In the last 20 years, the modern office has gone through a number of evolutions. The early 2000s saw the death of cubicle farms and the rise of open floorplans, and 2015 brought waves of ping pong and football tables to offices everywhere. While office trends come and go, one thing that does not change is the impact that the office environment has on employee health and wellbeing. A quality workspace design leads to a less stressful and more productive atmosphere. It’s essential that employers take the physical work environment of their employees into consideration. Employees need to feel comfortable…

Office space in Germany: Preleasing rates rise

The trend continues. More and more occupiers are snapping up space during the planning and construction phase. “In 2019, every 5th square meter of office space in Germany’s Big 7, Hamburg, Berlin, Düsseldorf, Cologne, Frankfurt, Stuttgart and Munich, will be leased before building completion,” predicts Helge Scheunemann, Head of Research JLL Germany. He adds, “This trend can be attributed to the growing scarcity of modern office space with high fitout standards in Germany’s real estate hubs that we have been seeing for several years now. In response to this supply bottleneck, an increasing number of companies are signing leases for…
