Net initial yield (NIY)
Representing a transaction-based ratio, the net initial yield (NIY) reflects the annualised current passing rent minus non-recoverable property expenses, divided by the property valuation plus the incidental acquisition costs typical in the respective market. The NIY is one of the essential measurable variables for the investment market. It describes the typical price level of a logistics region. The lower the posted figure, the more attractive and pricey the location. The reported prime yield rates refer to properties let on long-term leases (e.g. of 10 years), sound property standards (alternative use options), and warehouse areas of more than 10,000 sqm. They represent stabilised yield figures that ignore outliers and thus fail to reflect the absolute peak figures of a given market.
