Global office rentals on the mend.

Global office rentals on the mend

While global office rents increased 4.3% year-on-year in the first quarter of 2011, according to CB Richard Ellis’s Q1 2011 Global Office MarketView, rentals in South Africa have remained stable, Broll Property Group reports.

South Africa is currently a tenants’ market. Landlords are willing to look at favourable deals to retain tenants, but South Africa’s rentals are on par with international trends. We face the same challenges. Unemployment is rising and companies are downsizing and consolidating to ensure their future. Obviously, that affects their property requirements.

The South African property market lags behind the EMEA market by 12 to 18 months.
