Commercial Real Estate in Mumbai: Offers Big Opportunities to Invest

By Mr. Ramesh Nair MD , West, JLL India

The number of HNIs (high net worth investors) & and corporates seriously looking to invest into Indian office space has increased manifold in the past few years.
Mr. Ramesh Nair MD JLL India

Mumbai continues as India’s numero uno office space investment destination, with companies from all over the world unerringly zeroing in on the financial capital.

True Financial Hub..!

As South Asia’s only true financial hub, Mumbai is among India’s best places to invest in commercial real estate.

In times of global economic uncertainty (2008-09), investors flock to markets that have consistently proved their long-term stability and fundamentals.

In a scenario wherein institutional investors are showing reduced preference for commercial real estate in their portfolios, Mumbai continues to present HNI and corporate investors with myriad growth opportunities in office properties.

Low Risk and High Returns..!

However, the multitude of options also gives many enthusiastic investors heartburn - where on Mumbai's vast and complex map are the low risk / high returns locations?

Today, Mumbai as a city for commercial space investment reveals a high rate of vacancies in many locations. The rental yields in these micro-locations are expected to decrease marginally over the next one year. While this seems to present a depressing scenario on the surface, the fact is that we are now looking at the bottom of the curve.

In other words, these markets are expected to bottom out over the next 12 months and will consequently start to move up again. These locations have significant long term capital value appreciation potential, and well-informed investors are keeping a close eye on them.

Mumbai  Commercial property Classified:

    Central Business District :
The CBD (Central Business District) which includes the micromarkets of Nariman Point, Fort, Ballard Estate, Cuffe Parade and Churchgate

    Secondary Business District:
The SBD (Secondary Business District) which includes the micro-markets of Worli, Lower Parel, Prabhadevi, the Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC) and Kalina,
    Peripheral Business Districts:
The PBDs (Peripheral Business Districts) of Andheri – Jogeshwari, Malad – Goregaon, Powai – LBS Marg & Thane - Navi Mumbai. The commercial property investment opportunities vary according to the unique characteristics of each micro-market.

At first glance, some of these markets would seem to be places to avoid, given the high vacancies there. However, some of these areas bear closer scrutiny beyond the seemingly obvious.

Data trends of the past shows that rentals and capital values in almost all Mumbai micro-markets, except Lower Parel and Andheri, have either remained stable or gone up over the past 30 months.

Many corporates are today migrating from the traditional CBD to BKC and Lower Parel. Over the next two years, the rentals and capital values in Mumbai’s CBD are expected to come down, rendering them more buyer &  tenant-oriented for the first time in decades.

Meanwhile, the SBD district of Lower Parel is seeing significant demand, given the fact that the rentals and capital values there are less than half of those in the CBD and at the Bandra Kurla Complex. Over the next  one year, the rental and capital values in Lower Parel are expected to bottom out. Commercial properties here are an excellent investment proposition at the current pricing levels.

Meanwhile, BKC is emerging as Mumbai’s acknowledged ‘alternate CBD’, with many banks moving their headquarters there from their erstwhile CBD locations. Capital values &  rental values in BKC are expected to go up in the medium term, making commercial properties there a good buy.

The limited commercial space supply that BKC will have to address the strong demand over the next two years adds to its investment potential. The Bandra Kurla Complex is particularly interesting for HNIs from the diamond industry, given its proximity to the diamond bourse.

Office Space Investment Guidelines:

 Entrepreneurs who are considering buying commercial real estate for self use should ensure that the amenities in the project match their business needs

 Investors need to make sure that they study the quality of building, location, demand supply dynamics &  yield compression possibility
The best buildings in each micro-market will always command a premium
Check the developer credentials, potential for infrastructure development, access to public transport &  quality of property management

 Investors looking at income producing office assets should look at the break-up of cash flows, the vacancy factor, expenses such as maintenance, property tax and building insurance, lease term, lock-in period and expiry dates, long-term capital appreciation potential and refurbishment, refinancing and re-positioning potential.

Best Job Opportunities in Indian Real Estate Sector

Sameer Khanna, JLL India

by Mr. Sameer Khanna, JLL India

Is the Indian real estate sector the right place to make a serious career in now? Compared to more developed countries, the Indian real estate sector still lacks sophistication & transparency.
However, it continues to be in the limelight of domestic &  international investments. This has naturally brought on the need for better, more capable human resources.

Though real estate is not nuclear science, there is a fair degree of complexity involved. As in any other business, real estate businesses operate either on:
    ^ The basis of knee-jerk reactions to currently existing market trends and opportunities
    ^ A learned understanding of the market, anticipation of emerging possibilities and with provisions for market integrity over the long term
The first method is reactive and often opportunistic. The latter is based on information rather than gut-feelings, and results in assured growth rather than short-term gains via calculated risks. There is increased emphasis on the latter approach today – therefore, there is definitely scope for making a career as a real estate professional.
Real Estate Courses..!The scenario is changing fast and there is a lot of professionalism coming in because of the arrival of major international players. Developers are cleaning up their acts & introducing best practices and higher transparency now, thanks to evolving market dynamics.
People equipped with the right know-how, training and professionalism are in high demand, and are paid correspondingly.
There are a number of real estate courses that aim to equip their students with some requisite knowledge, thereby giving them an edge. However, academic learning needs to be backed by hands-on, practical experience in order to reap fruits. A real estate course is at best a means to an end, but certainly not an end in itself.
The emergence of Indian real estate as a new academic focus is, of course, heartening. Equipping students with a basic understanding of the real estate market is as valid as instructing them on stock market dynamics – knowledge of either field can open up various career possibilities and attract youthful progressiveness into the sector.

Academically Prepared..!Also, the real estate professionals of the future are responsible for bringing about some badly-needed regulatory frameworks in the sector, and for catalyzing a higher degree of transparency.
The fact that they now have opportunities for being academically prepared for this is nothing but positive. That said – should one choose to attend such a course, checking its accreditation & verifying that the courses are officially recognized is extremely important.
In the final analysis, no learning is ever wasted. At the very least, even rudimentary real estate courses can whet the appetite of our youth to acquire experience and proficiency in this exciting, dynamic sector.
Here, as in every other business field, the instructed youth of today are the leaders of tomorrow.
The following are some of career options available in the real estate sector:
    ^ Residential real estate broker:A broker dealing in residential properties may represent either the buyer or the seller.
   ^  Commercial real estate broker: Such a broker sells hotels, office space and similar commercial real estate properties. He/she may concentrate solely on retail office space, mall space, industrial space or hospitality space. He/she is involved in extensive market analysis, since commercial real estate is a preferred investment sector.
 ^  Real estate appraiser : Such people determine the fair market value of a home for sale. They assess the value of properties on behalf of an appraisal firm, a bank or even major private investors. They are involved in refinancing, too.
    ^ Property manager : Such a person usually is part of a professional property management firm and looks after the investment of the property owners. He handles customers and manages lease and rent deals. Good negotiation and people skills are derigueur in this line.
  ^  Facilities manager : Facilities management as a concept has just begun emerging as the best possible route of maximize profitability and reduce overhears in large real estate projects such as residential townships, office buildings and malls. There is still a severe dearth of adequately trained facilities management personnel. Professional property and asset management companies such as JLL (Jones Lang LaSalle) train their operatives on the ground.
^   Real estate investment consultant : Such a person has extensive inside knowledge of the real estate market & advises property investors on the best investment options. His/her main focus is to locate properties that will appreciate in value.
    Project development experts: ^  Such people are at the very nexus of the property market, and help create saleable properties. They advise developers on all aspects of the project, from the blueprint stage of final deployment.
Best of Merit and Luck...!

Economically Weaker Sections : RBI Rise Home Loan Limit to Rs. 10 lakh

The RBI (Reserve Bank of India) on recently  doubled the limit for housing  loans to Rs. 10 lakh from Rs. 5 lakh for consideration under priority sector lending.

As per the existing norms, banks have to provide 40% of the total credit to the prescribed priority sectors including housing for economically weaker section.

Loans of such nature fall under indirect finance to housing sector as the final disbursement is done through NHB approved non-governmental agencies.

Finance minister Mr.  Pranab Mukherjee in his Budget for 2012-13 proposed to enhance the limit of indirect finance under priority sector lending from Rs. 5 lakh to Rs. 10 lakh for construction or reconstruction of house for the weaker section.

In July last year (2011), RBI has said assistance given to a non-governmental agency approved by the NHB for the purpose of refinance for construction or reconstruction of dwelling units (Houses/flats) or for slum clearance and rehabilitation of slum dwellers, subject to a ceiling of loan component of Rs. 5 lakh per house.

Q4 profit up 15% : Stable Prices Boost India Cements

Stable cement prices &  improved realisations have contributed to Chennai bases India Cements reporting a 15% growth in net profit during the fourth quarter.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2012, India Cements reported a net profit of Rs 65 crore on a total income of Rs 1,123 crore.

During the corresponding quarter in the previous year, the net profit was Rs 56 crore on a total income of Rs 942 crore.

A noticeable recovery in demand and a higher average realisation during the year at about Rs 3,431 a tonne (Rs 2,661) have contributed to the improvement in performance.

Cement sales during the quarter were at 25.28 lakh tonnes (25.32 lakh tonnes).

Mr N. Srinivasan, Vice-Chairman and Managing Director, India Cements,''The Cement Manufacturers Association figures show that during the last quarter the demand has grown by 10%t over that of the previous year. Last year input costs had increased across the board as the cost of power, fuel &  raw materials had increased."

But there is bound to be a ‘tapering of costs' in the current years as the company is securing critical costs like power& coal.

India Cements has commissioned a 50 MW coal-based power plant at its Sankar Nagar plant in January, 2012.  Its captive plant in Vishnupuram is to be commissioned soon.

As grid power costs increase, the captive power plants will contribute to significant savings.

The company has also invested over $2 crore in captive coal mines in Indonesia which will be commissioned in the first quarter of the next financial year (2013-14).

During the 2011-12, the India cements  has reported a net profit of Rs 293 crore (Rs 68 crore) on a total income of Rs 4,223 crore (Rs 3,540 crore).

Tata Sponge Iron : Target Price Rs. 420

For 4Q FY 2012, Tata Sponge Iron (TSIL) reported a 6% yoy decline in its revenue
to Rs. 184 cr, 15.5% higher than our estimate of Rs. 159 cr.

The company’s EBITDA margin came in at 13.9%, lower by 4.93% q o q, from 18.8% in 3Q FY 2012 due to increased raw-material costs as a percentage of net sales possibly because of
higher iron ore prices.

Profit for the quarter stood at  Rs. 15 cr as compared to Rs. 17 cr
in 3Q FY 2012. We expect ramp-up in capacity utilization and better sponge iron
volume sales going forward.

We await clarity from the management on the status of its coal block, which could be a key trigger for the stock. Maintain  Buy recommendation on the stock with a target price of Rs. 420, based on a target P/B
of 0.9x for FY2014E.
