Landlords to offer more incentives to counteract decreasing demand

Office vacancy rates in China will continue to rise in 2013, with rents under pressure after skyrocketing over the past few years, industry experts said.

International real estate service provider CBRE expects new office supply will remain abundant this year, most of it coming from emerging areas.

"Over the next few quarters, rents will be under some pressure - especially for offices located in newly developed areas," said Frank Chen, executive director of CBRE.

Beijing's rent growth of Grade A offices is expected to slow to about 5 percent in 2013, as elevated rent levels have decreased tenants' affordability dramatically over the last three years, real estate service provider Savills said in a report.

Despite limited leasable space in the market, rent growth slowed on the back of weaker demand.

Grade A office rents in Beijing increased by 0.9 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012 to 317.8 yuan ($51) per square meter per month, with annual growth falling to 13.8 percent from 44.2 percent in 2011, the report showed.
