  8. Banished from paradise – Credit Suisse publishes its study of the Swiss Real Estate Market 2016

    Negative interest rates allowed real estate investors to book high valuation gains last year. By contrast, there are growing signs of marketing difficulties in the various real estate segments, as testified by rising vacancies, record-high supply rates, and higher time on market figures. The supply of rental apartments and commercial property is likely to outstrip demand in 2016. Low interest rates are proving a key contributory factor, with plenty of capital flowing into real estate development due to the comparatively high yields. The resulting expansion of property space increasingly looks out of step with the corresponding demand. Although the demand for rental apartments in 2016 is likely to match that of last year thanks to additional demand from refugees, yield prospects are looking less rosy following a decline in the influx of working immigrants. The economists of Credit Suisse are also forecasting weaker demand in the markets for commercial property, which is being driven not least by deep-rooted changes in connection with the digital revolution. Only in the owner-occupied housing market do demand and supply appear to be largely in a state of equilibrium. Rising interest rates or demographic effects in a few years' time appear to be the sole factors that could subject markets to a "stress test."
