Global investment volume grows in Q1 despite uncertainty
Global commercial real estate investment grew 34 percent year-over-year in the first quarter to $282 billion, according to CBRE.
Investment jumped 47 percent in the Americas, 25 percent in EMEA and 5 percent in Asia-Pacific.
All commercial real estate sectors registered strong growth in first quarter, including office and retail, which faced the greatest challenges during the pandemic. Industrial & logistics and multifamily fundamentals continue to attract investors, but limited supply of for-sale assets weighed on volume growth in some markets. CBRE expects global investment volume this year will fall slightly short of 2021’s record total. Headwinds to growth include rising interest rates and high inflation, as well as the war in Ukraine.
