Recession – are we still in or now officially out?

wantspacegotspace.co.uk - Recession – are we still in or now officially out?Debate on the influence of the property & construction market on the economy is certainly heating up, with conflicting reports on investment deals done, property prices and contractors order books that are seemingly dependant on what part of the UK you analyse. One thing’s for sure we will know just where we are come this November when on Tuesday the 12th, this year’s Property & Business Investment Show (now in its fourteenth year) will act as a great barometer of just where the market’s at.

“Delegates” say Business Shows organiser Tina King “have their finger firmly on the pulse as they access the market face to face with buyers and sellers. Simply entering the exhibition hall, you have an immediate impact - you can feel the buzz – it’s either anticipation or deals being done!”

Expectation of deals in the final qtr of 2013 is high, money has simply not been moving in the market but like a tidal wave the doors are opening. Asset acquisitions have taken off as pre-2008 purchasers are taking advantage of value/loss gains and investors pour cash into markets that offer the opportunity of 6-10% yields and at current Bank rates who can blame them.

End user occupiers and CRE managers have clearly been waiting for the right moment and industry pundit Martin Freeman (@investorgossip on Twitter) says “investors & developers have simply been ticking over waiting for that “right moment in time” and now to many that time is now. Many of the opportunities sitting on the drawing board could now be viable with profit to have. It requires optimism, risk and a more importantly a new “can do” attitude
from Local Authority planning officers.”

The 2013 Property & Business Investment Show is at the East Midlands Conference Centre Nottingham on Tuesday 12th November. Delegate entry to the Exhibition, Seminars and parking remains completely free of charge.
