CEE investment volume down, Poland bucks the trend – report

If all planned transactions are closed on time, the total commercial real estate investment volume in CEE (defined as encompassing Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Russia) will this year reach approximately €13 billion, according to a recent report by Cushman & Wakefield. This will mean a decrease from the €15.3 billion recorded in 2017 that will mainly result from the shortage of prime product, which is currently the biggest challenge in the region, the study said. However, Poland – which has been the strongest market in CEE since 2015 – should this year actually see its investment volume reach an all-time high of around €6 billion. The country has been witnessing significant overseas capital inflows in 2018 (accounting for 56% of the total volume) with the most such investments coming from South Africa, South Korea, Singapore and North America.
