Commercial Real Estate Opportunities in Cyprus and Greece
The commercial real estate investment opportunities, in both Cyprus and Greece, have never been higher than today. Both Cypriot and Greek banks are involved in capital raising campaigns to cover massive losses which resulted from correction of asset prices and the need of liquidity. In Greece, the severe austerity policies have raised the unemployment rate from under 10% to 25% and caused the economic activity to decline by 25%. This decline in economic activity in Greece has corrected asset prices substantially and has also caused banks to be in search of liquidity. These financial conditions create substantial real estate investment opportunities for high net-worth long-term investors.
In Cyprus, economic activity has not declined as much as in Greece and Cyprus has started growing again but Cypriot banks had sustained substantial losses because of their Greek sovereign debt exposure. While not at the same magnitude as in Greece, Cypriot banks have property of bankrupt developers and commercial loans that are maturing with high leverage remaining in their books.
These situations will result in sale of distressed assets or liquidations which are opportunities for high net-worth investors and funds that are liquid and which are ready to invest with a 4- to 6-year holding horizon. It is important to highlight that the long term economic and housing outlook of Cyprus is bright.
