JLL: Hungarian transactions hit EUR 790 mln

Investment & finance
HUNGARY Hungarian commercial real estate investment volumes reached EUR 790 mln in 2015, which was the best result registered since the market peak in 2007, says JLL.

Almost 60 pct of the annual volumes was generated by portfolio transactions. According to the analysts say, this reflects the increasing interest of investors for large platforms in an attempt to gain significant exposure to the market. “Market fundamentals improved remarkably, with record breaking occupier demand, declining vacancy rates and a limited development pipeline. The pool of buyers deepened: the importance of Hungarian real estate funds and overseas investors increased strikingly, the presence of exotic private money remained significant, while European capital (British and Austrian investors) was also active. Moreover, the yield spread with Western European and other leading CEE markets guarantees the attraction of the market,” they write. Based on the latest transactional evidence the prime office yields stand at 7.00 pct along with prime retail while we now price prime logistics at 8.75 pct, says JLL.
