New Business market report from Business Monitor International: "Argentina Real Estate Report Q4 2014"
Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/05/2014 -- Argentina's commercial real estate sector continues to be affected by the wider economic problems, notably high inflation, low GDP growth, restrictions on the purchase of US dollars and a business environment that does not favour international investment.After the January 2014 devaluation of the peso, inflation has increased, estimated at as much as 25%, leading to a drop in consumer, and investor, confidence. Should the government's new inflation index lose credibility, we would expect investor confidence in the country to be further dented, affecting the commercial real estate market by putting off potential market entrants, as well as potential expansions.
Meanwhile, we expect real GDP to grow by only 0.4% in 2014, significantly down from 3% in 2013, although we do see an improvement to 3.3% in 2015, meaning the economy is operating well below potential.
The ongoing restrictions on use of the US dollar, in which most real estate transactions are denominated, as well as the government's questionable economic policies will continue to have a detrimental effect on the overall health of the retail sector, with industrial real estate in particular suffering.

This demand is also spreading outside the capital, Buenos Aires, to other cities with untapped demand. Although consumer confidence is low, and inflation will account for some of the gains both in consumer spending and retail rental costs that we predict, we do see strong potential for the sub-sector.
In the office sub-sector there has been a narrowing in the gap between Buenos Aires rental costs and those of the other two cities that we cover, with top end rents in C?rdoba now exceeding those in Buenos Aires. However, we do note that this could prove unsustainable in the longer term.
