MIXED BALANCE IN THE FIRST HALF OF THE YEAR
On the Leipzig investment market, a transaction volume of a good €320 million was achieved in the first half of 2019, corresponding to a decline of 10% compared with the same period last year. Compared to the 5-year average, investment turnover fell by almost 30%. However, the continuing lively interest of investors and the high price level suggest that the declining transaction volume is primarily due to the increasing bottleneck on the supply side. In particular, there is a lack of large-volume trans-actions in the core segment, which has so far stood in the way of a possible improvement in investment results. Should an adequate offer come onto the market in the further course of the year, it should also be possible to mobilise the buyer side quickly. This is also supported by the fact that investment turnover in the second quarter, at just under €210 million, is already significantly higher than the result for the first quarter (€111 million).
