Business parks are once again highest in demand
Business parks are once again highest in demandCompared with the same period of the previous year, the investment volume in the first half of 2015 fell by 19.9%. Nevertheless, corporate real estate continues to enjoy brisk demand. A total of 72 corporate properties were traded in the first half of 2015. In 2014 as a whole, only 92 properties were traded. Therefore, the declining transaction volume is rather due to the comparatively small size and/or quality of the traded properties and not to a lack of interest. Many high-quality and expensive properties have already been traded in the recent past. Taken together, the investment volume for corporate real estate in the first half of 2015 totals around EUR 532.2 million. Of the previously 24 billion in commercial real estate, corporate real estate accounts for around 2.2 %.
