POSITIVE DEVELOPMENT IN THE FINAL QUARTER
After defying the corona pandemic and the associated uncertainties with a strong result in 2020, the Düsseldorf investment market was unable to match this performance in 2021 with a transaction volume of around €2.4 billion. The result is around 34% below the prior-year result, and the long-term average was also missed by around 15%.The moderate market performance is attributable in particular to the lack of supply of core properties within the market area of the state capital of North Rhine-Westphalia, which are in particular demand from investors. Irrespective of this, a significant market recovery was observed towards the end of the year. The above-average dynamic final quarter, in which around €944 million was achieved, twice as much as in the third quarter, illustrates this positive trend.
