The Spanish capital is the second best city to invest in the real estate sector according to the Global Investor Intentions report, prepared annually by the CBRE consultant and in which participated more than a thousand international investors.
Improving one position regarding the ranking of 2017, Madrid stands only behind Paris. The top 5 developed by the players in the sector are completed by Amsterdam, Frankfurt and London.
Madrid is, therefore, the best representative of Spain, a country that occupies the sixth place, remaining one more year in the top 10 among the countries of Europe, the Middle East and Africa, the parts of the world analyzed in the report.
Almost a third of the surveyed acknowledge in the report that their investments are aimed at diversifying the portfolio, while the returns and the highest yield of return are the second and third reason for disbursing real estate capital, both with 19%.
For the first time, international investors are strongly committed to the logistics sector. This market is preferred by one third of the surveyed, surpassing the office market, which is of interest to 26% of the players. The main reason for this sorpasso is the high profitability generated by the logistics spaces, which grow in volume and value thanks to the rise of ecommerce.
Another of the highlights of the study is the investment in alternative assets in 2018. This segment is already present in the items of 70% of international investors, according to the survey of CBRE, highlighting the assets of residences of students and seniors.
