]]> Newmark: The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act https://immo-gironde.com/newmark-the-infrastructure-investment-and-jobs-act/ Mon, 22 Nov 2021 20:35:10 +0000 https://immo-gironde.com/newmark-the-infrastructure-investment-and-jobs-act/

On November 15, 2021, President Biden enacted the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). This new legislation has important long-term macroeconomic implications for the country’s competitiveness on a global scale by improving resilience, productivity and economic growth, as well as national and regional implications for development and investment in the economy. commercial real estate. The following is a summary of the IIJA and the specific implications for industrial real estate.

The roughly $ 1.2 trillion legislation – mostly funded by reallocated, unspent funds and new revenue – contains reforms and funding for previously approved infrastructure projects and programs and about $ 550 billion in new ones. investments. These expenditures will focus on a variety of infrastructure projects ranging from physical infrastructure – such as improving and expanding physical transport networks (roads, railways, ports and waterways, airports and public transport) – to water, electricity and internet infrastructure, among other initiatives.

The biggest projected beneficiaries of the IIJA:

Now that the bill has been signed, implementation – including the creation of rules and regulations – will take months longer; then state and local governments will have to decide which projects will receive monetary allocations. These physical infrastructure expenditures will require a wide variety of materials and products, such as steel and lumber, as well as labor, both in skilled trades and in administration. Labor and commodity markets are still in a state of pandemic-induced volatility, but new spending and construction related to this bill will not begin until 2022 at the earliest, and therefore may not exacerbate current shortages. of raw materials and the resulting price increases *. However, the timeline could still present challenges on the way to infrastructure opportunities, especially in sourcing skilled labor – a difficulty often in the construction industry even before the pandemic **.

The new legislation has a myriad of long-term implications for national and regional industrial real estate. The majority of the IIJA is directed to the transportation sector, with the largest allocation of funds ($ 110 billion) going to improving roads and bridges, which will facilitate more efficient movement of goods. In a 2014 survey by the Urban Land Institute and EY, the quality of infrastructure (specifically, improving roads, bridges, and public transportation) was the primary determining factor in real estate development decisions. According to a November 15, 2021 note on the IIJA from global industrial REIT Prologis, “where states and localities choose to invest their money in a major development could influence where logistics companies such as Prologis and its customers invest in new properties ”. Once transportation improvement or expansion projects have been formally identified, land for industrial development as well as existing industrial properties nearby may increase in value.

E-commerce has been one of the drivers of paradigm shift demand for industrial real estate, and it is expected to continue to grow thanks to another major provision of the bill: $ 65 billion has been earmarked for expanding and improving Internet access, particularly in remote and rural underserved areas. areas. This will provide a number of advantages, including greater opportunity for consumers offered by the online market. Improving ease of access has the potential to attract new customers to the digital economy and increase the need for industrial space to support and expand e-commerce supply chains.

Other ways in which the industrial sector may be impacted by the IIJA relate to energy, ranging from supporting the electrification of transportation systems and electric vehicle charging stations to investments in renewable energies and improvement. the resilience of the electricity network. This will benefit a variety of industrial users with high energy needs and support the higher expectations of investors, tenants and consumers for a shift in the logistics industry towards more sustainable and efficient energy use.

Industrial real estate is essential to the production and movement of goods, and this unique injection of federal spending will support and expand the physical infrastructure that makes this movement possible, ensuring long-term benefits for the industrial asset sector.

Swiss assembly: the government consults on new accounting rules for Compenswiss | New https://immo-gironde.com/swiss-assembly-the-government-consults-on-new-accounting-rules-for-compenswiss-new/ https://immo-gironde.com/swiss-assembly-the-government-consults-on-new-accounting-rules-for-compenswiss-new/#respond Fri, 05 Nov 2021 16:56:48 +0000 https://immo-gironde.com/swiss-assembly-the-government-consults-on-new-accounting-rules-for-compenswiss-new/

The Swiss government has decided to launch a consultation on the introduction of new accounting rules at Compensiwss, the public institution managing the social security funds of the first pillar AVS, AI and EO.

The consultation will last until February 16, 2022, and the new rules are expected to come into force on January 1, 2025.

The Compenswiss accounting process would in future be based on International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSAS). The new regulations will also have an impact on Compenswiss’ investment activities.

Under the new accounting rules, Compenswiss will have to use a different method to report the investment category of “direct loans”, depending on whether the loan will be held until the end of the contract.

In addition, contributions not yet invoiced to the AVS, AI and EO funds must be recognized as an asset; overdue obligations for services not yet invoiced must be declared as debt.

This applies in particular to AI benefits, which are currently only recognized at the time of payment.

Pensions are considered a liability if a member notifies the pension scheme after reaching retirement age and it is not paid before the end of the year. The same goes for deferred old-age pensions.

Maternity benefit claims should also be counted as a liability if the benefit is not paid before the end of the year.

Interest rate maintained at 1%

The Swiss government has decided to keep the minimum interest rate paid on occupational pensions at 1% for 2022.

For the third year in a row, the interest rate remains unchanged, based on positive developments in financial markets, he said.

The minimum interest rate depends on bond yields and returns on stocks and real estate investments. It applies to pension savings accumulated on salaries in the range of CHF 21,510 (€ 22,022) to 86,040 per year, corresponding to the compulsory part of occupational pension insurance.

The yield on 10-year federal bonds remained low at -0.53% at the end of 2020 and -0.17% at the end of September 2021, the government said in the note.

The performance of stocks, bonds and real estate improved overall in 2020, albeit in a volatile environment, and remained positive in 2021.

For equities, the Swiss Performance Index was up 3.8% in 2020 and 12.9% in 2021 at the end of September. Bond performance was slightly positive in 2020, but weakened this year due to rising interest rates. The performance of real estate investments remained “very positive”, he added.

In August, the federal commission for occupational pensions, BVG-Kommission, voted in favor of an interest rate of 1%, above the 0.75% suggested last year, against a backdrop of positive momentum on the financial markets and the highest level of Pensionskassen funding since 2004, commission chairman Christine Egerszegi-Obrist told PEI.

The unions, however, demanded an interest rate of 1.25%, while the majority of employer representatives on the committee were in favor of 1%, with the exception of the Swiss employers’ association, which voted in favor of an interest of 0.4-0.5%. rate.

Switzerland commits to fight climate change in developing countries

Switzerland is funding the United Nations Adaptation Fund to help communities in developing countries vulnerable to climate change with an additional 10 million francs for the period 2022-2024.

The Adaptation Fund has committed over $ 850 million to date for climate change adaptation and resilience projects and programs.

Switzerland also pledges 8 million Swiss francs to the Coalition for Climate and Clean Air (CCAC) for the period 2022-2025, 9 million Swiss francs to the Least Developed Countries Fund for the period 2020-2022 and $ 16 million to the Climate Investment Fund. It will devote nearly 10 million Swiss francs to the High Impact Partnership for Climate Action set up by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.

Swiss President Guy Parmelin, who represented the country at the World Leaders’ Summit at the UN Climate Change Conference COP26 in Glasgow, urged all countries to do more to tackle global warming.

He said: “I call on all countries, especially major emitters, to aim for climate neutrality by 2050. However, this does not go far enough; these long-term goals must be translated into short-term actions. I therefore call on all countries to submit ambitious climate goals for 2030, ”he said.

Switzerland intends to halve its greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and become climate neutral by 2050.

European Golden Visa for Indian Students: what is it and who can apply https://immo-gironde.com/european-golden-visa-for-indian-students-what-is-it-and-who-can-apply/ https://immo-gironde.com/european-golden-visa-for-indian-students-what-is-it-and-who-can-apply/#respond Fri, 05 Nov 2021 09:11:25 +0000 https://immo-gironde.com/european-golden-visa-for-indian-students-what-is-it-and-who-can-apply/


Golden Visa programs allow international students to study and work in the country they are applying to

Ireland, Germany, France, Switzerland, Cyprus and Portugal are among the top destinations for Indian students

The Golden Visa program has become popular among international students as it gives them the opportunity to study abroad and to live and work in many European countries.

Ashish Saraff, CEO and Founder of Aretha Capital Partners, a UK-based real estate investment firm that is qualified to obtain gold visas for Portugal, Greece and Cyprus, gave Edugraph a glimpse of the buzzing scene of higher education in Europe.

Edugraph: Why are students moving away from traditional destinations to study abroad?

Ashish Saraff: The UK and USA have been the top priorities for most Indian students as they have offered the opportunity to work after graduation. But the scenario has changed over the years due to the gradual reduction in work permits in these two countries. Although the UK recently launched the Post-Study Work Visa, the real challenge begins when you start looking for an employer who would sponsor your stay in this country.

Has there been a significant increase in the number of new Indian students at European universities?

LIKE: The European education sector has grown in leaps and bounds over the past five years. As an English speaking country, Ireland leads the pack. The number of Indian students opting for Irish universities, especially Trinity College Dublin, is truly astonishing. Cyprus and Portugal are very successful in attracting international students. Switzerland, France and Germany also rank quite high on the preference list for international students.

Is the language issue a big obstacle for Indian students wanting to apply to European countries where English is not the primary mode of communication?

LIKE: Of course, this has been one of the main concerns of Indian students. However, most European countries are now offering or developing English courses to attract students from Asia and the Middle East.

Which European countries are preferred by Indian students?

LIKE: Students have been flocking to Ireland, especially Dublin, for the past few years. Portugal is also a favored destination due to its cosmopolitan mix of people. Many Asian students are now opting for private universities in Cyprus. These three countries are currently at the top of the preference list.

Can you list some of the top courses / tracks in overseas education for Indian students?

LIKE: The popularity of courses / tracks in a country is determined by the type of businesses operating there. Tech giants Amazon and Google have established foundations in post-Brexit Ireland and that is why Indian students are opting for bachelor’s, master’s and computer engineering courses at Irish universities. Those who go to Cyprus prefer accounting and business management courses as the top four accounting firms operate in this country.

Portugal is preferred for a variety of courses, including those with career prospects in the tech industry and the offshore and onshore renewable energy sectors. Switzerland is a popular destination for students seeking careers in the food and beverage industry and banking.

What would be the application process for European universities?

LIKE: Typically, most universities start accepting applications about eight to nine months in advance. Some universities hold entrance exams for international students, while others may have a standard threshold based on a student’s current and expected grades. There is always an application timeline. For example, this year’s application window will close at December.

It is important to note that international students will have to pay the full admission fee, which is sometimes a deterrent. On the positive side, it is not difficult to get a student visa once you are accepted into the university.

International students are often not allowed to work part time and this is where the Golden Visa comes in handy. The Golden Visa can be used by buying a property or investing in a fund. If you are already a European citizen, you can work at the same time as your course or even after your course.

What types of investments are needed to study in Europe?

LIKE: For Indian students, Western Europe is more expensive than the Mediterranean region in terms of tuition fees and cost of living. If you are coming to Western Europe, you will need 40,000 to 45,000 euros per year, including tuition and living costs. Trinity College Dublin charges around 5,000 to 6,000 euros per year to a local or European student, while an international student has to pay around 25,000 to 35,000 euros.

In the Mediterranean region, it is closer to 25,000 euros per year, of which around 15,000 are for school fees, 5,000 for accommodation and 5,000 for food and the art of living.

Do European universities offer scholarships that can help Indian students?

LIKE: It is extremely difficult to get a merit scholarship at a top European university because you are competing with just about everyone in the world! Some mid-level universities offer scholarships in the form of a discount on tuition fees, but it depends on the university, country and course. You will find such scholarships in fields such as applied sciences, biotechnology, and advanced robotics.

Why have Golden Visa programs become so popular?

LIKE: Education is one of the main reasons for the growing popularity of Golden Visa programs. The Portugal Golden Visa program, for example, leads to citizenship in just five years. Once you are a European citizen your children can go to any school or university just like any other European child. It paved the way for a new way of life for many people.

How would Golden Visa programs benefit students compared to applying directly to universities?

LIKE: Take Portugal as an example. The Portugal Golden Visa requires the investment of a minimum of 350,000 euros, which equates to approximately Rs 3 crore. This investment must be held for five years from the date of granting of your residence permits. You only have to live in the country for seven days a year and can apply for citizenship after five years.

It becomes a very good proposition for people who have young teenagers at home. These children would do their higher education abroad as EU citizens. Their parents don’t have to pay high fees for international students. Most importantly, they would be free to live and work anywhere in the European Union as European citizens.

How does Aretha help students who want to study abroad?

LIKE: Aretha Capital Partners is a property management and investment company. We also operate a real estate platform called novyy.com and are qualified to obtain gold visas for Portugal, Greece and Cyprus.

The Golden Visa can be used by buying a property or investing in a fund. We are probably the only firm to offer an integrated platform for such processes. We support investors throughout the immigration process.

What are the prospects for part-time jobs and internships for Indian students in Europe?

LIKE: Some courses allow students to work up to 20 hours per week. But international students are often not allowed to work part time and this is where the Golden Visa comes in handy. If you are already a European citizen, you can work at the same time as your course or even after your course. This makes room for a few extra dollars that could cover your living expenses.

Rental vacancy rates fell again in October as economic and health conditions improved: data from the estate https://immo-gironde.com/rental-vacancy-rates-fell-again-in-october-as-economic-and-health-conditions-improved-data-from-the-estate/ https://immo-gironde.com/rental-vacancy-rates-fell-again-in-october-as-economic-and-health-conditions-improved-data-from-the-estate/#respond Thu, 04 Nov 2021 14:29:24 +0000 https://immo-gironde.com/rental-vacancy-rates-fell-again-in-october-as-economic-and-health-conditions-improved-data-from-the-estate/

Improving economic and health prospects have prompted tenants to rent vacant rental properties, new data shows, as east coast states emerge from lockdown with high vaccination rates and more certainty.

Rents will likely continue to rise and vacancy rates will continue to fall once international borders reopen, but the rental market will not experience the same boom as the sales market due to the glut of apartments, have said officers.

Rental vacancy rates continued to decline in October, with substantial declines in post-foreclosure cities of Sydney (2.2%, from 2.5% in September), Melbourne (3.1%, from 3, 5%) and Canberra (0.8 percent, vs. 1 percent), the latest figures from Domain show.

COVID-zero capitals have largely had tight rental markets since the start of the pandemic, and it became even more difficult over the month to find a rental in Brisbane (1.2% vacancy, up from 1.00% vacancy). 3%) and Perth (0.5%, down 0.6 percent).

The other capitals remained stable with Darwin at 0.6%, Adelaide at 0.5% and Hobart at 0.4%.

Australia rental vacancy rate

21st of October Sep-21 20 oct. Mom YoY
Sydney 2.2% 2.5% 3.1% ?? ??
Melbourne 3.1% 3.5% 4.5% ?? ??
Brisbane 1.2% 1.3% 1.8% ?? ??
Perth 0.5% 0.6% 0.7% ?? ??
Adelaide 0.5% 0.5% 0.7% ??
Hobart 0.4% 0.4% 0.5% ??
ACT 0.8% 1.0% 0.9% ?? ??
Darwin 0.6% 0.6% 0.6%

Ray White, general manager of property management, Emily Sim, said improving rental markets coincided with the exit from foreclosure.

“We’re only seeing the last of these decisions before we return to work and resume our new normal next year. We have some clarity by the end of 2021, which was not clear at the end of 2020, ”Ms. Sim said.

“We’re just seeing the last wash of people saying, ‘What’s our final lifestyle mix? Are we going to commute? Are we going to work from home?

“I think we’re going to see a further tightening of the market; I expect the demand to increase when we have the borders reopened, ”she said, adding that she was already responding to demands from the expat community in Britain, Germany and Switzerland.

With inner-city and apartment-dominated markets recording higher vacancy rates, including Sydney City Center (3.2%), Parramatta (3.2%) and Ku-ring-gai ( 3.1%), Sim said the lifestyle and rental housing markets were seeing better recoveries.

Northern Beaches rentals have strengthened over the past 18 months, consistently ranking at the top of rent increases, and citywide asking rents for homes have hit a new record.

The same pattern was repeated in Melbourne, where vacancy rates in the inner city, high density apartment markets lagged behind the rest of the city. Melbourne’s CBD still has a high vacancy rate of 5.8%, although down from 14.4% a year ago. The geographic region of Stonnington East had the highest vacancy rate at 6.2%.

This type of neighborhood would continue to weigh on the recovery of the rental market, preventing a “turning back”, according to Mike McCarthy, general manager of Barry Plant.

“We will see a gradual improvement more than a boom. We will see this rental demand increase. I just don’t know if it will return to the all time highs that we have seen, ”he said.

The city’s high vaccination rates and the end of the world’s longest lockdown have given tenants more confidence than a year ago, Mr McCarthy said.

“This general feeling of trust means they are renewing their leases. This will push some of those people who don’t want to stay at the house to rent again, ”he said.

“The other thing with all of this as well is that we are seeing such a shortage of manpower in so many areas that we are starting to see real pressure on wages… and that is leading people to say:” Not only will I get a job, I will have more money too.

This has yet to be considered the median asking rent price in Melbourne, held at $ 430 per week – as all other cities have seen their rents rise – making it the cheapest Australian capital to rent a house.

The rental market in Perth has also seen some kind of rebound thanks to the combination of a positive flow of interstate migration and landlords stranded in leases due to exploding construction deadlines, according to Damian Collins, chairman of the Real Estate Institute of Western Australia.

“We are certainly facing a significant shortage of rental stock and it is a real challenge,” he said, adding that the city only recorded its peak vacancy rate of 7.3%. in 2017.

“A lot of tenants who have bought properties to build are still sitting in their rentals. We expect 8,000-10,000 to vacate their rentals which will free up inventory, but this will be drip fed over the next 18 months.

But even once international borders open, the rental market might not relax, Collins said, as investors haven’t rushed into the market at high enough levels and construction hasn’t kept up. the pace of demand.

That meant rents had to increase until the vacancy rate rises again, which will take some time, with the reopening of borders only increasing demand, he said.

“We are the cheapest place to rent relative to our income. While this is painful for some tenants, most are able to cope with rising rents.
