CONSOLIDATION PHASE CONTINUES
With an investment volume of €782 million in the first nine months of 2023, the Düsseldorf investment market ranks in the middle of the A-locations. Nevertheless, the overall result is around 59% below the long-term average. As in other German investment markets, the significantly more difficult and more expensive equity and debt financing is hampering investment activity. In addition, the weak economy and the associated decline in companies' willingness to invest have led to a weak performance. Restrained letting activity on the user and especially the office markets is contributing to a certain degree of uncertainty on the part of investors, as a result of which the consolidation phase is continuing. This is also reflected in the fact that after nine months only two transactions were recorded in the segment above € 100 million.
