Jones Lang LaSalle preliminary numbers show direct investment volumes reached $94 billion; eight percent increase over same quarter last year
CHICAGO, LONDON, SINGAPORE, April 8, 2013 – Commercial real estate continues to rank high on the list of acquisitions for investors around the world as preliminary global real estate investment volumes in the first quarter of 2013 reached US$94 billion, according to Jones Lang LaSalle capital markets research from 60 countries. The real estate investment volumes in 1Q 2013 represented an eight percent increase over the same quarter in 2012.
Improving confidence in the global economic recovery and a continued demand for direct real estate exposure continue to push volumes higher with Germany, Japan, and the United States all finishing the quarter strong. Other highlights include:
Arthur de Haast, Head of the International Capital Group at Jones Lang LaSalle said, “Volumes of almost US$100 billion in the first quarter of the year, in what is historically a quieter period, demonstrates the desire investors continue to have for direct real estate investments. Encouraged by a slowly improving global economic environment and rising property values, especially in core cities, the number of assets for sale continues to increase.”
David Green-Morgan, Global Capital Markets Research Director said, “The improving sentiment across all real estate markets is encouraging buyers to look at opportunities slightly up the risk curve and vendors are cheered by an increasing number of buyers examining assets in more secondary locations. These two factors are helping to drive volumes higher and we expect this to continue for the remainder of 2013.”
