Global Market Perspective November 2018

Real Estate Markets to Carry Momentum into 2019

Global real estate markets have exceeded expectations as we enter the final quarter of 2018, with investment and corporate occupier activity set to surpass 2017 and finish the year at their highest levels since 2007.

Office leasing markets remain buoyant and although volumes in 2019 may struggle to exceed the stellar results this year, they will stay well above the 10-year average. Meanwhile in the logistics sector, sustained demand is holding vacancy rates near historic lows and keeping an expanding pipeline in check which, in turn, is driving additional rental growth. Investor demand for real estate is still high with full-year 2018 investment activity on pace to exceed 2017 levels, though volumes are expected to soften somewhat in 2019 due to continued investor selectivity and discipline.
