CBRE Australia Office Marketview, Q2 2017

28 July 2017


National CBD office vacancy continues to tighten, estimated at 10.3% as at June 2017. Vacancy is expected to trend down until 2020, driven by limited supply across all markets.

The Melbourne office market has performed strongly over H117 exhibiting the highest level of effective rental growth of all CBD office markets, and overtaking Sydney’s rental growth rate in Q217.

Sydney’s growth is easing with the white collar employment growth rate slowing to 0.7% y-o-y in Q117 and enquiry levels down. This has slowed the rate of rental growth, although prime net effective rental growth is still forecast to exceed 10% in 2017.

In Perth, after two consecutive quarters of stabilisation in face rents, Q2-17 saw further declines, with secondary face rents falling substantially by -4.4% and prime by -0.8%. Incentives continued to increase, up to 52% for prime and 54% for secondary.

National office transaction activity is down 30% in H117 versus H116. Yield compression was a key feature of Q217 with prime and secondary yields down by 20-30bps across the east coast office markets.
