Although investment and leasing activity remains muted across most sectors, anecdotal evidence suggests that viewings and requirements are rising again. This should translate into increased activity in the coming months. Business and investor confidence should build further, helped by the vaccine roll-out and reopening of the UK economy.
In this month’s Property Snapshot, we note:
- There was £2 billion worth of capital invested into commercial real estate during February, with overseas investors accounting for half of all investment activity so far this year
- Student housing attracted £455 million, the sector’s highest figure in over a year
- Long term assets such as student housing and BTR alongside prime offices and logistics are at the top of many investors’ and will stay on top as the market continues to open up in the coming months
