UK, German Activity Grows in Q2, RCA Report Shows

By on August 3rd, 2017

The U.K. regained its title as the biggest property market in Europe in the second quarter of 2017 as a flurry of London trophy asset deals boosted volume, the new edition of Europe Capital Trends shows. Across the continent, total investment volume declined 14% YOY but a stack of pending deals paints a brighter picture.

Activity climbed in Q2’17 in Germany, too, and cross-border investment in the country is at the highest level recorded since 2008. A growing assembly of Asian, U.K. and U.S. investors are placing capital in the country.
