Real Estate Markets Set for Solid 2019

Global real estate market activity remained elevated through the first quarter of 2019, although there are signs that momentum is slowing from last year’s impressive levels. Nevertheless, investor and corporate occupier demand are on track for a solid 2019 with levels expected to be well above long-run averages.

Office leasing demand has maintained its robust pace into the first few months of the year and is projected to broadly match last year’s record total during 2019, although vacancy is anticipated to gradually rise amid an extended supply cycle. Record levels of demand also continue to be registered in the logistics sector, keeping most markets landlord favourable.

Despite the amount of capital seeking exposure to real estate continuing to grow as fundraising and allocations to the sector increase, investment activity in the first quarter declined from last year’s record high. In 2019 activity is likely to be marginally lower for the full year due to increased investor discipline and a lack of suitable product.
