After a year of pandemic experience, half of CEE real estate investors expect an improvement in transaction activity this year. This is the result of the CBRE Investors Intentions Survey, reports the Warsaw Business Journal.

Warehousing, logistics and office sectors remain the preferred sectors, while the residential sector is also growing rapidly and becoming one of the most desirable areas for investment. The most sought-after investments are those of the core type, that is, stable and with long-term leases, which indicates great caution. The focus on tenants continues.

“Due to the great optimism of investors and the implementation of vaccination programs across Europe, we can predict that the value of investments in Central and Eastern Europe in 2021 will hold the level of last year or even increase slightly. The market is still Cautious Transactions are more often in the form of products with stable long-term returns on capital, but some investors are also looking for opportunities that are primarily sought in hotel and retail properties. The CEE region and Germany are currently attracting the most attention across Europe and Warsaw are at the top of the list of the most interesting capitals in our region for investors. This is due to both the availability of high-quality modern facilities and the high demand from tenants. We can therefore assume that 2021 and 2021 will be the following years for the market be very positive, “said Joa nna Mroczek, head of market research and marketing departments in Poland and the CEE region at CBRE.
