Colliers Baltics has recently published 1HY 2020 Investment Market Overview covering largest investment deals in the region and analysing the activity. Besides, 2nd investors‘ sentiments survey has been conducted recently by Colliers Baltics team with the goal to find out the general feeling about current investment climate in the Baltics as well as expectations for the next year activities.
First half of year 2020 mostly saw a hiatus in activity, resulting from the COVID-19 outbreak, which affected the Baltic market sentiment and transaction processes due to travel and other quarantine restrictions. As a result, investment in the commercial real estate market descended by more than 40 per cent in Latvia and 33 per cent in Lithuania compared to the corresponding period of the previous year. At the same time, a few larger deals were completed in the pre- and post-quarantine period. Baltic and foreign investors were both equally active in the market, Nordic investors were responsible for 11% of total volume in the Baltic States, while foreign capital in total was behind exactly half of invested volume. The share of TOP3 investors amounted to half of total investment volume in the Baltic States.
