RESPECTABLE INVESTMENT RESULTS IN THE CORONA YEAR
The Cologne investment market recorded a transaction volume of a good € 1 billion in the first three quarters, which can certainly be considered a success in view of the difficult market situation. Although the previous year's result was missed by about a quarter, there is still a very slight increase (+ 2%) compared to the 10-year average. Looking at the investment result in detail, there are several positive aspects to it: For example, the Q3 result of a good € 300 million is already significantly higher than in the previous quarter (€ 238 million). In addition, between July and September alone there were 19 sales transactions, almost as many as in the first half year as a whole (21). The market is therefore very active, even though there is still a lack of large-volume deals. In addition, unlike most other A-cities, the investment result in Cologne is largely attributable to individual deals (75%), while package sales and company takeovers play only a minor role. It is thus evident that investors are looking selectively for assets in the Rhineland metropolis.
