Property Market Conditions in Eastern Europe

According to research from CB Richard Ellis, about €567 million was invested in institutional property markets in Central and Eastern Europe in the first half of 2009. This represents a staggering 86% decline from the second half of 2008 and a 91% plunge from the first half of the previous year. Close to 80% of all investments went into Russia, Poland, and Czech Republic, with Russia accounting for nearly half of all investments. The actual number of deals has fallen sharply to about 40 in the first half as a whole, which is only a half compared to the previous semi-annual period and about a third compared to the same period in the year earlier. Moreover, the average size of the deals has fallen sharply from the previous year, by 65% to €15 million in the first half of 2009. This compares to a close to 40% decline in average deal size in Western Europe, where the deal size in the first half this year averaged about €18.4 million.

The majority of investments in commercial property in Central and Eastern Europe so far this year is in office space, which absorbed about 40% of the total investment volume. Another 20% went into retail space. Traditionally, foreign investors accounted for well over 80% of all investments in commercial real estate in Central and Eastern Europe in previous years. However, what is peculiar this year, and may be a reflection of the severe credit squeeze and the heightened risk aversion, is that foreign investors have accounted for slightly over a half of all investments. This trend is likely to reverse, but is still indicative of the high risk aversion among foreign investors, who are likely concerned about the prospects for a recovery in the property markets in Central and Eastern Europe.

On the other hand, property prices have dropped by double digits in most national markets in Central and Eastern Europe. Prime yields—or returns on investment—now average around 10% and have recovered in recent months compared to their rates in 2008. Even though the market is expected to continue to remain under pressure for some time, yields have been on a stabilizing, upward trend. The currently highest prime yield for office space has Kiev (15%) and the lowest has Warsaw (6.75%). Kiev also has the highest prime yield for retail properties (16%) and industrial space (17%). Prague has the lowest prime yield for retail space (7%), and, along with Warsaw and Bratislava, has the lowest yield on industrial real estate (8.75%). However, it should be noted that yields on sub-prime properties may be substantially higher than the yield on the noted prime properties.

The recent downturn in the commercial real estate market has been relatively mild in Warsaw and Prague, which represent the most stable commercial property markets in the region. This is partly a reflection of the overall soundness of the economic fundamentals underlying the economies of most Central and Eastern European countries. However, the collapse of the Hungarian economy has taken an especially heavy toll on the nation’s commercial property market, in particular on its office space, which has seen prices fall by over a third compared to the year earlier.

Even though property prices in most national markets are still declining, opportunities for investment will emerge soon, as the global economic recovery gives a thrust to the local economies of the Central and Eastern Europe. This will likely revive the attention of foreign investors, especially from Western Europe, who may be particularly interested, albeit cautious, in making investments in the markets that offer higher yields than those offered by their respective national markets. Therefore, the recent correction in prices of commercial properties in the region represents an opportunity for international investors to acquire real estate that has a potential for rapid appreciation while providing stable and comparably high yield.

***** “I proposed and she said yes!”

“God bless RussianEuro. I met Alya some months ago on this site and we started chatting more than two hours every day, the compatibility and chemistry was such that we fell in love right away.

“I spent an amazing time in Ukraine and we had the time to get to know each other a lot better and to fall in love more. I have not only found an amazingly beautiful, smart, easygoing woman, but also the woman I want to spend the rest of my life with, yes, that`s right folks, I proposed and she said yes. I love you Alya” – David


***** “I want to express my sincere gratitude and thanks to everyone of RussianEuro.”

“I met Elena (my wife now!!) via her friend while chatting on the site.

“I corresponded with Elena for about 2 months before I physically met her. I met her on 04 January 2009 in Ukraine and it was the most exciting and wonderful moment!

“She (with her friend Lolita who is a great lady and a great friend of us!!!) was waiting for me in a train station. I looked at her and I felt I found my love which I had been looking for ages. We could talk that much but our eyes, body languages were so strong and clear that we did not have to think twice to be together!!!

“I had few relationships before but never felt to get married. Elena touched the deepest part of my heart and her love made me to feel paradise!! Every day, every moment she is now in my heart and mind-I feel a real happy person with her presence in my life. I just feel life is so wonderful and meaningful!

“Following our first meeting in January 2009 I wanted to be with her very much. I visited her again in March 2009 to know each other more. Afterwards, I proposed her in May 2009 (offered her engagement ring) when we both were enjoying the Ukrainian summer near lake, mountain and river.

“Elena was so surprised hearing my proposal (will you marry me?) that she was speechless for a while (that made me little nervous!!!) but she happily said YES OF COURSE! I was just on the moon!! and felt everything is so wonderful!! We then married in July 2009 in her city in Ukraine.

“For me, Elena is a gift from God. I will love and care for her for the rest of my life. She is my heaven, my paradise for which many people can just dream about. She is my life, she is my everything. Thanks God!!!

“I want to express my sincere gratitude and thanks to everyone of RussianEuro because it has changed my life and with its help I am now feel a realy happiness. Thank you very much once again!! I recommend RussianEuro for every single person looking for love and happiness.”

Call center debt collection booms in Eastern Europe

In Romania only, the debts with more than 30 days overdue are reaching 4.459 billion LEI (more than 1 billion EUR) this year. This is +60% than in 2009. Today, more than 714,000 people have overdue debts in this country (1500 EUR per debtor as an average).

As the financial crisis plunges many people into debt, in Romania as well as in Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia, Hungary, Poland, Ukraine and Russia, more and more creditors are turning to outsourced debt recovery via call centers, making the debt collection business one of the fastest-growing sectors in the call center industry in the region.

We’d like to take this opportunity to respond to some of the most common questions we have been receiving about the expansion of our debt recovery services for Eastern clients.

Who are your clients and what services are you performing?

For collections, most of our clients are banks and financial institutions. Our two largest customers for collections are a leading French consumer finance company and one of the largest European banks. For both clients we provide soft debt collection services: payment reminders over the phone, mostly in Romanian, Bulgarian and soon, in Hungarian and Russian.

Do non-financial/banking companies tend to outsource debt collection as well?

Yes, indeed. Not only banks and credit players need collection services: more and more industries – and first and foremost: utilities, cable, and telecom operators – have to deal with large numbers of clients not paying their overdue amounts. Most of these companies start looking for a call center because they do not have the necessary personnel and know-how or the correct infrastructure in-house to manage large debt collection campaigns by themselves. We are here to help them.

How is CallPoint different from its competitors for collections?

Call center debt collection is a very specialized job, which requires the right technology as well as experienced people. We have recruited a skilled team of managers who have significant experience in both soft and hard debt collection. Their experience includes nearshore and offshore debt collection campaigns (UK and the USA mostly). Thanks to their know-how, we are now using the best international practices to reach high recovery rates.

How do you track down debtors who evade your calls?

We have formed a specific department called “Skip Tracing”. This department is devoted to finding the debtors who change residence or phone numbers  without notifying creditors in order to evade payment of bills. We search city and telephone directories, street listings, and perform inquires at post offices. CallPoint’s “Skip tracing team” begins with any known information such as the name, last known address, previous addresses, last known and previous phone numbers, employer’s phone number etc. The more identifiers our skip tracers have, the easier it is for them to complete a skip trace.

With the help of our skip tracing department, the quality of information has expanded dramatically and with the correct information in hand we are increasing our efficiency in debt collection by up to 20%.

What is the profile of a  debt collection officer and how do you retain them?

Being a collector is not an easy job. Therefore, the selection process is an important step. For early-stage collection, we see that students or young graduates have better results (from 20 to 30 years old), while for late-stage collection, the best profile is women between 30 and 40. The main traits which make a good collector profile are: strong personality, flexible, always being in control, “straight to the point” attitude and good communication skills.

The training process is important as well. The collection officers have to understand the scope of the collection, they have to understand their role in the collection process. They have to be taught how to be firm and strong without being impolite or disrespectful.

Another important aspect is the use of incentive schemes. Our collectors receive bonuses based on their recovery rate. The collector must understand the Key Performance Indicators, and be aware of their performance on a daily basis.

What do creditors expect from a call center like CallPoint?

Our clients expect different things, including transparency, constant focus over performance, and flexibility. But most important, I think our clients are working with us because we are a reliable partner for a long-term relationship, as we provide constant results at the right price:

Continuous performance. We do our best to deliver steady results all year round. Our clients do not like ups and down in monthly results as this will blur their estimations for revenues.
Pricing is an important aspect. The business relationship between CallPoint and its clients must be a win-win one. Therefore, we align our prices with performance. The higher the recovery rate, the more we earn.

Is CallPoint also offering other services to banks and financial institutions besides debt collection?

We are performing large telesales campaigns to improve our clients’ market share. We have good know-how on selling both credit loans and credit cards over the phone. Inbound customer care (both inbound calls and email management) is also an important service we are offering to our clients in order to improve the client’s interaction with their customers.
