PwC-Immospektive is aimed at all players in the Swiss real estate market and provides an incisive overview of current market activity.
In addition to clear presentation and interpretation of the latest figures from research and consultancy company Fahrländer Partner, the publication also shows the influence of economic data on various segments and real estate submarkets. Each issue also takes a closer look at current market developments and sector trends. PwC-Immospektive is published quarterly – at the same time as the meta-analysis by Fahrländer Partner.
The Swiss economy posted another robust performance in Q1/19, and this momentum has trickled through into the labour market. Global uncertainties will start to have an adverse effect on the Swiss domestic economy, however. Its strong currency and expansive monetary policy are driving down government bonds well below 0 % and continue to favour real estate investments. There is therefore still plenty of upside price potential for residential properties, while rents are on the decline, especially in peripheral locations. Office rents have risen sharply on the back of the good employment figures, and low vacancy rates have made downtown areas a renters' market.
