The KPMG Swiss Real Estate Sentiment Index (sresi®) serves as indicator for anticipated developments in the Swiss real estate investment market. The main index is generated based on assessments of economic developments and price trends in the real estate investment market. In 2017, over 250 institutional and professional investors as well as appraisers of Swiss investment real estate took part in the yearly conducted representative survey.
The index measures the expectations of market players regarding developments over the next twelve months, on a scale from -200 to +200 index points. The aggregated sresi stands this year at 15.2 index points (pts.) across all participant groups, 44% (-11.9 pts.) lower than the previous year.
The price expectations have dropped considerably. Nearly half of the respondents anticipate stagnating prices over the next 12 months. Around a quarter expect prices to drop. Declining prices are anticipated for all commercial investment segments with the exception of special-purpose properties.
