According to preliminary figures in the CEE Real Estate Investment Compass 2017 report compiled by Colliers International and CMS, the Czech Republic received almost two-thirds of total real estate investment in central and eastern Europe in Q1 2017. The data also suggests that 2016’s record-breaking total of €12.2 billion of investment flowing into the region’s real estate markets will be surpassed in 2017.
The report, which looks at key trends in the real estate markets of Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and Romania, found that real estate investment in the six markets in Q1 2017 was €2.3 billion, a 41 percent increase on the Q1 2016 number.
