Office property was among the winners in the German commercial investment market in the first quarter of 2016. The transaction
volume for office properties rose by 6% compared with the corresponding period last year to approx. €3.7bn (Table 1). We also expect offices to remain the most sought-after sector for the remainder of the year, significantly ahead of retail property.
The increase in ABBA strategies that we predicted at the start of the year was clearly apparent in the first quarter. Only around 47% of the transaction volume was attributable to the top seven cities compared with the three-year average of 51%.
