COVID-19: Romanian Investment Market Survey Part II

Download Report

The global backdrop remains quite uncertain but compared to the previous survey we published for Romania back in April, this time, there are some facts to be had and there is also some glimmer of optimism. For real estate investments, though, the overall context remains not that conducive amid uncertain future revenue streams for real estate projects. In order to gauge where we are currently at, we asked 47 top market participants (from investment and fund managers to developers to banks) their opinion on several matters, with the survey delivered between 28 September and 6 October.

In a positive twist compared to our April survey, the share of respondents stating they want to understand the situation better before making a move has dropped from 67% to 30%, while the “buy at more favourable conditions” answer has risen from 23% to 62%.

Industrial and logistics projects continue to receive the most interest in the market, with optimism increasing since our April survey.
