The investment property market has grown increasingly jittery in recent months due to concerns of a renewed global recession looming ahead. As a result, investors are again zooming in on the most liquid and stable asset classes, and the price of risk has gone up. In Denmark, growing concerns about the housing market due to stagnant ownership prices and slower transaction activity combined with sustained high levels of newbuilding have curbed investment activity in terms of newbuilding of residential rental properties. In this update, we take a look at market resilience in various scenarios.
An increasing number of co-operative housing societies are opting for liquidation for the purpose of divestment in the market for residential rental properties, which continue to be in high demand by investors. A new Colliers analysis reveals that individual co-op members stand to gain DKK 1.3 million on average in a sale. However, many co-op members not only fetch a handsome profit from a sale, but also stand to obtain favourable terms as future tenants. Is this a passing whim, or will more co-operative housing societies explore the possibilities of liquidation?
Online retailing accounts for an increasing share of consumer spending. This year, Danish consumers are projected to make online purchases to the tune of DKK 125 billion, a figure that has grown by 12-15% annually in recent years.
Meanwhile, sales in traditional shops have been stagnant at best, with many retailers and sectors suffering a slump in shop turnover.

When introducing our 2018 market report this spring, we did so asking if this is “as good as it gets?”. In other words: Danish economy is expanding, with growth in production and consumption, employment levels are higher than ever, consumer confidence is strong, and interest rates remain incredibly low. In such a “Goldilocks Scenario”, you may sometimes wonder if the framework conditions for property investments are in fact so favourable that things in general can only get worse. Sustained economic growth should prompt rate hikes – if interest rates remain low, it is because of a slowdown in the economy, job growth and consumer spending.
Although a fairly new phenomenon in Copenhagen as compared with other metropolises, serviced offices are gaining ground, also in major cities outside Copenhagen. One of the reasons why they are becoming more popular is the possibility for users to save costs. According to our calculations, very small businesses (3 or 4 employees) stand to gain the largest savings by opting for serviced offices rather than a standard office lease.
After the onset of the financial crisis in 2008, residential construction came to a standstill. Meanwhile, the demand for housing in urban locations increased at a steady pace: An increasing number of people moved to the cities. In addition, families with young children increasingly remained in the city.
If anything, the takeover of Sadolin & Albæk by Colliers is the epitome of a game changer. Creating a new market-leading commercial property agent in a league of its own in the Danish market, the takeover came as a surprise to a great many market players
