Total volume of investment transactions in Poland in 2014 exceeded €3.1 billion reflecting ca. 5% drop year-on-year.
US, German, Austrian and UK investors dominated the Polish investment market with a share in the total volume of transactions of ca. 82%.
Domestic buyers accounted for ca. 12% of the volume, which converts to a record high of ca. €370 million.
Office transactions dominated activity while the logistics sector outpaced retail for the first time in history.
Facing a lack of prime and leased assets, the subprime offices in good locations in Warsaw will be of demand.
Investor activity in regional cities will continue to grow in 2015.
Although increased demand for prime logistics assets will continue, supported with high development activity, we predict that the the investment volume in this sector will decrease this year.
We believe that activity in the retail sector will be much higher this year, leading to an overall end-year investment volume across all sectors at least equal to last year's result.
