Investment in German commercial property totalled almost €40bn in 2014.
This represents an increase of 27% on the previous year; itself a very strong year for investment.
In contrast with the commercial property market, the transaction volume for residential portfolios fell by 14% to approx. €12.1bn. This is primarily attributable to the fact that transaction activity increasingly shifted from the high-value major cities towards smaller cities.
