Investment market situation - Barcelona

The investment market in Barcelona continued to show solid fundamentals which led to an increase in investment and which may result in 2019 becoming a record year. The first half of 2019 closed with an investment volume of €620m and a yield of 3.75%. Experts expect a similar investment volume for the second half of 2019.


Investment market situation - Madrid

The cumulative volume in the investment market in Madrid exceeded expectations, reaching an investment volume of close to €1,005m in the first half of 2019, exceeding the annual average of the first half historical series by 41%. The trend of previous years continues in which more than two thirds of the investments were led by international investors. Prime yields remained stable at 3.5%.



Investment market situation - Paris

The investment market in Paris performed exceptionally in the first half of 2019 with a transaction volume of more than €9,900m, an increase of 5% compared to the record level of the previous year and 88% above the average over the last ten years. This good result is mainly due to the increased volume of large transactions in the prime CBD and the centre of Paris. Foreign investors have remained very active, responsible for close to 32% of the transaction volume during the first half of the year. After stable semesters, the strong investment volume and an increase in prime rents have all led to an additional compression of prime yields to stand at 2.75%.
