Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/28/2014 -- While Australia's commercial real estate market remains an attractive destination for local and regional investors, the sector has not been immune from the slowdown in the wider economy, with weakened business sentiment and rising unemployment in particular having a negative impact on demand for office and retail space.

Job uncertainty and weak business sentiment are expected to continue to undermine demand for office space in the country's major cities with vacancy rates across the country currently averaging around 9%. Meanwhile, a lack of modern retail stock should help to maintain a relatively healthy supply-demand balance in the retail segment, despite slower growth in consumer spending which is forecast this year. The industrial segment is also relatively undersupplied with demand expected to be boosted by an acceleration in export growth following the depreciation of the Australian dollar in H114.
