ARA Presents '2007 in Review' Multifamily Market Report

BOCA RATON, FL--ARA’s Florida offices are pleased to announce the completion of our year-end market report, titled “2007 in Review.”

The report takes an in-depth look at the dynamic multihousing market within the state of Florida and offers a look at historical investment sales volume, discusses who the active buyers are, tackles the impact of the shadow market, and takes a look ahead into 2008.

A snapshot of the report’s contents:

For a number of reasons, 2007 was an interesting year for real estate. After three straight years of record-breaking investment volume, sales slowed dramatically due to tightening credit standards and a sense of trepidation on the part of lenders brought on largely by the fallout of the subprime market.

According to the Urban Land Institute, real estate industry leaders pointed to improving occupancy rates, rental rates, and escalating net operating incomes in commercial and multifamily markets as support for a “soft landing” forecast for 2008. Demand for apartments is expected to escalate in 2008, especially in higher-cost coastal corridors with barriers to entry, due largely to the impact of echo boomers and continued frustration on the part of would-be buyers and financially strapped homeowners.

Throughout Florida, continued population growth and job creation are fueling continued demand for apartment units. A lack of affordable for-sale housing in many markets, along with the sub-prime fallout and more stringent lending practices are further fueling that demand. High construction costs and the price of land have kept development at a minimum – all of which should translate into increasing occupancies and positive rental rate movement within rentals.”

CB Richard Ellis Group, Inc. Acquires Cederholm, a Leading Commercial Real Estate Services Firm in Denmark

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CB Richard Ellis Group, Inc. (NYSE:CBG) has announced the acquisition of its affiliate company in Denmark, CB Richard Ellis Cederholm A/S (“Cederholm”), one of that country’s largest commercial real estate services companies.
(Photos: Henrik Cederholm, top left; Mike Strong, top right)

The purchase price is approximately $43 million. The acquisition significantly strengthens CB Richard Ellis’ platform in Scandinavia by giving the Company a wholly-owned position in one of the region’s most active property markets.

Cederholm has been CB Richard Ellis’ affiliate in Denmark since 1999, and this transaction reflects the Company’s strategy of acquiring affiliate companies in global markets with high growth potential. Founded in 1998 by Henrik Cederholm, the business employs approximately 60 people, has three offices located in Copenhagen, Aarhus and Kolding and delivers a full service offering to clients.

CB Richard Ellis foresees strong growth in the Danish property market. One notable trend is the erosion of the traditional preference for owner-occupancy among local companies, which has made sale-leaseback transactions an attractive option. The popularity of sale-leasebacks, alongside strong economic growth, are expected to continue to draw a growing number of international investors to both Denmark and the wider Scandinavian region.

Mike Strong, (photo top right) President of CB Richard Ellis, EMEA, said: "Denmark and the entire Nordic region is of strategic interest to our clients. Cederholm is a well established business with an excellent reputation and strong market position in Denmark. This transaction is a key building-block in the development and expansion of our operations across Scandinavia.”

Henrik Cederholm, (photo top left) Managing Director at Cederholm, added: “Full integration with the world’s largest commercial real estate services provider makes perfect sense for the future expansion of our business. CB Richard Ellis’ global platform and strength in the marketplace will now give us an enhanced opportunity to grow our position both in Denmark and internationally. Both companies’ clients will benefit enormously from our combined expertise at a time of increased interest and activity in Denmark’s commercial real estate market.”

HVS Hodges Ward Elliott Appointed Exclusive Advisor for Sale-Leaseback of 23 Fletcher Hotels in the Netherlands

LONDON—HVS Hodges Ward Elliott has announced it has been appointed the exclusive advisor for a sale/leaseback transaction for the 23-hotel portfolio owned by Dutch hotelier Fletcher Hotels. The 3- and 4-star hotels, comprising 879 rooms, are located throughout the Netherlands, from the Wadden Islands in the north to Valkenburg in the south.

“Fletcher has developed an efficient, high-tech operating platform that could be rolled across Europe and generates excellent cash flow per room,” said Rudy Reudelhuber, HVS Hodges Ward Elliott managing director. (Right top photo)

“Many of the hotels are irreplaceable assets due to their location in prime, established neighborhoods in their respective markets, which means high barriers to new competition. This portfolio is an excellent opportunity for an investor to acquire a significant Dutch real estate portfolio at an attractive yield with a tenant that has healthy rent coverage.

“The Netherlands’ economy remains strong with positive operating figures for the hotel industry there, as well as throughout all of Europe,” he said. “This transaction offers excellent opportunities for both the buyer and seller.”
