The number of the real estate transactions in the industrial and logistics sectors has increased this year to a level which allows us to say that we are assisting a market recovery. The real estate agencies and the consultants within the field say this could be even the best year since the beginning of the economic crises.

 

The European real estate market has exploded this year, especially in Central and Eastern Europe. In the first nine months this area has attracted EUR 4.3 billion investments, with 11 pct growth, the interest being focused on office projects, followed by retail and industrial.

 

Industrial spaces request worldwide was stimulated by the expansion of certain economic fields, such as auto parts industry, electronics industry, as well as the online commerce, sectors which also registered growth on the local market.

 

215 pct. growth for Romania

Romania had in the first nine months the biggest growth of the real estate transactions in Central and Eastern Europe, of 215 pct., a value of nearly EUR 700 million, compared to just EUR 63 million registered in 2009, the first year of the crises. The specialists’ forecast shows that by the end of the year we could expect a total volume of EIR 800 million.

 

Infrastructure investments heavily cut

According to the most recent data from the National Institute of Statistics, the engineering construction works, meaning infrastructure, have decreased with 28.3 pct in the first eight months of the year, on the background of important cuts registered by the investment expenses of the state, which have decreased with 18 pct. in the same period. Overall, the construction works have decreased with 11.9 pct in the first eight months.

 

On this background the construction companies focus mainly on the private segment, trying to take advantage of the real estate sector’s development.
