PREVIOUS YEAR'S RESULT AGAIN EXCEEDED: €43.1 BILLION
Just under €43.1 billion was invested in commercial real estate in the first three quarters of 2019. The result is thus slightly above the already extraordinary previous year's turnover. Only in the first three quarters of 2007 the transaction volume was even higher. Taking into account investments in residential real estate (30 units and more), which amount to €13.6 billion, this results in a turnover of almost €56.7 billion. So far, the weakening economy has thus not been reflected on the investment markets. The same applies to a whole series of global risk factors; these too have not reduced buyer interest. Individual deals account for a good €30.8 billion, only 1% less than in the previous year, when a new record was set. This means that their share of the total transaction volume has decreased somewhat, but still amounts to almost 72%. In contrast, portfolio sales, which contribute €12.25 billion to the total, increased by 5%.
