Commercial real estate investment volumes in Continental Europe reached a record high of €248bn in 2019, according to global real estate advisor, CBRE. This represents a 2% increase from €243bn in 2018, which was previously a record for investment volumes. Across the whole of Europe (including UK and Ireland), investment volumes totalled €315bn in 2019, down 2% from €322bn in the previous year. The small decrease in 2019 was due to a 19% decline in UK volumes reflecting investor caution in the face of ongoing political uncertainty. Even with the shrinking UK volume, 2019 was the second strongest year on record for European investment, after 2018.
