One United Properties Publishes Q1 2024 Trading Update

Recently, One United Properties published its Q1 2024 trading update, which gives us a quick run-down of the Company’s performance indicators. In this overview, we’ll detail the main points.

Starting off, One noted that in Q1 2024, the Company was able to sell and pre-sell 92 apartments, with a total area of 10.6k sqm, and 228 parking spaces, for a total of EUR 57.1m. In the same period last year, One sold 220 apartments, for a total of EUR 63.6m, meaning that even though the apartments sold this year represent a 58% decrease in quantity, it is evident that they were sold at a higher price. However, it should be noted that pre-sales are also included here, which carry lower prices.

This is also evident in the sale price per sqm, which grew by 27% YoY, due to most of the developments progressing to advanced stages of construction and this being reflected in the appreciation in the sales price, further indicating an increase in the sales margin YoY. This is all in line with the Company’s strategy.

In terms of the pre-sales themselves, they amounted to EUR 4.6m in Q1 2024, a decrease from EUR 26.9m YoY. This would mean that pre-sales accounted for only 8% of the total sales in Q1 2024, as compared to 42% in the same period last year, which just shows the impact of the pre-sales on overall sales, as described above.
