European Real Estate Market to Prize Stable Income Streams in 2020

17 December 2019 – According to a report by Savills Investment Management, the big players in the European real estate market will begin to focus on more conservative investments in the coming year. Investors are expected to start looking for stable, long-term rental income streams in place of opportunistic bets.

The investment cycle in European rental markets is entering a period of reduced growth and heightened uncertainty due to weakened demand and economic and geopolitical developments. Consequently, analysts foresee anaemic economic growth over the next 12-18 months.

Savills IM, however, still sees significant opportunities in the office, retail and logistics sectors at the European level. In Spain, the firm expects the real estate sector to continue to see better than average performance in 2020, vis-à-vis the rest of Europe, despite the slowdown in domestic demand and weakness in external markets.
