Abstract

Improving investor sentiment boosted Northern Ireland real estate performance in 2014, leading to some yield compression as the demand for assets grew, and prices tightened as theyear progressed. This was reflected by a positive yield impact of 2.2% within the total return of 10.9%. Equivalent yields compressed from 8.0% to 7.8% over the year, further evidence of the strengthening of pricing in the market. Despite this, pricing in Northern Ireland remains comparatively discounted against the rest of the UK and Republic of Ireland, where end-2014equivalent yields were 6.0% and 6.5% respectively.
