France’s commercial real estate market is not just Paris, but Paris does represent the lion’s share of the country’s commercial property market, at nearly two thirds of total acquisition volume. Seoul is even more dominant, representing a 74% share of the South Korea country market.
The chart below shows the 10 countries which are home to the world’s leading global commercial real estate markets, based on transaction volume for the first six months of 2018. As well as France and Korea, the preeminent metro represents the majority of country transaction volume in Japan, the Netherlands and the U.K.
At the other end of the spectrum are the U.S. and Germany. Berlin comprises just a 14% share of the country market; it is one of seven German A Cities along with Cologne, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich and Stuttgart.
The new edition of Global Capital Trends, which reports on transaction activity and capital flows across global markets, will be released in early November. To get more information about becoming an RCA client, contact us.
