Summary: Yields for unlisted non-residential property compare favourably to the government bond yield and the ASX 200. Prospects in Adelaide and Perth look less favourable as economic conditions are patchier in both cities. But investor activity looks strong in Sydney and Melbourne, with demand rising. Across cities, yields on offer in the primary and secondary markets range from 7.75% to 10.44%. Unlisted funds are another way to access non-residential property, with industrial funds performing strongly.
Key take-out: Commercial property offers a way of diversifying an income stream and could lift a portfolio’s average yield.
