Despite COVID-19 impacts on markets, flow volumes remain relatively healthy for the first 3 quarters of 2020 at ca. €8.0 billion. Poland attracted €4 billion which represents 50% of all volumes in this period. Average transaction sizes are up 31.5% and the number of transactions are down 32% according to “The CEE Investment Scene Q1-Q3 2020” report released by Colliers International.
Little movement in prime yields
Since Q2 we have recorded very little movement in prime yields, primarily due to the lack of transactional evidence to support further shifts. Our view remains that while some shifts are inevitable, core, well performing assets should hold up well, with more pressure expected on secondary product. Due to the shift in interest of investors to logistics we can also expect to see prices react accordingly.
