The first 9 months of 2020, the strongest in the last decade for real estate investments

Volumes are already 27% higher than those recorded in the whole 2019

Almost two thirds (62%) of real estate investors confirm interest for acquisitions of new projects, both in Bucharest and regional cities, and are currently ready to buy at more favourable conditions, given the new economic context generated by the Covid-19 epidemics, according to a survey conducted by Colliers International on the investment market among nearly 50 real estate companies representing investment funds, developers, asset managers and banks. 

Investors continue to show the most interest in industrial and logistics projects, with optimism increasing since April, when Colliers conducted a similar survey. The share of respondents stating they want to better understand the situation before making a move has dropped from 67% in April to 30% in October. Moreover, the percentage of investors ready to “buy at more favourable conditions” has increased from 23% to 62%. Coupled with rising interest which Colliers gauges in constant discussions with clients, there is a strong case that market activity is on an upward trend.
