H.I.B. reports increased portfolio and figures

In announcing its annual results for 2017, H.I.B. (Home Invest Belgium), has given details of its property portfolio. The results, first of all, show 19.5% growth in net rental income to € 22.5 million, up from € 18.8 million in 2016. Net result from core activities was also substantially up, by 17.6% to € 9.8 million.

Where the portfolio is concerned, on 31 December 2017 Home Invest Belgium held a portfolio of properties spread across 51 sites and 5 development projects.
The investment properties in operation located in the Brussels-Capital Region currently represent 62.97% of the portfolio, those in the Walloon Region 16.12%, those in the Flemish Region 9.31% and those in the Netherlands 11.61%.

The average occupancy rate for the entire financial year 2017 amounts to 90.49%, compared to 90.18% for the financial year 2016. The occupancy rate of the residential properties currently in operation remains at a very high level of 95.33%, which indicates both a solid rental market and the suitability of the assets in this market.

Major acquisitions during the year were a redevelopment project located on the Rue Jourdan in Saint-Gilles, a building located Place de l’Amitié in Auderghem, the Brunfaut project located in Molenbeek, reception and marketing of the building ‘The Inside’ in Woluwé-Saint-Lambert, acquisition of the shares of the company Investers SA, owner of 3 buildings located in Brussels (Schaerbeek, Uccle and Saint-Gilles).
