Marking the launch of a new cycle, 2021 brought new segments and asset classes to the forefront, a trend that is expected to gain even more momentum all over Iberia during the next 12 months.
The volume of investment in commercial real estate returned to growth in Iberia in 2021, rising 18% in annual terms to a total of more than 14 billion euros and settling just 8% below the record performance achieved before the pandemic.
This data was calculated by Iberian Property Data, whose database identified a sample of 252 commercial real estate investment operations in Iberia throughout 2021, with a total amount traded of 14 billion euros. This result compares highly (+18%) with the 11.9 billion euros calculated in 2020, despite the decrease in the number of operations (-14%) compared with the 294 deals identified that same year.
Compared with the pre-covid period, the performance reported in 2021 was just 8% below the 15.2 billion euros traded in the Iberian market in 2019, which we note was a record year with the highest volume of investment in the last five years, when Iberian Property began monitoring the “Top Deals” series. We also mention that last year closed with 36 less deals than the 288 transactions registered in 2019.
On the 28th of March, the IV Iberian REIT & Listed Conference will gather a panel of real estate experts that will address which are the “winning” segments in the pandemic crisis and which ones will lose their place on the Iberian ranking in this new cycle of real estate investment. In a session moderated by António Gil Machado, Director at Iberian Property, the strategies for 2022 of some of the largest real estate investors operating in Iberia will be one of the highlights of the discussion.
