“Overall, the results are settling with a volume invested in undercover real estate which fell by a third in the first half of 2021” underlined Nicolas Verdillon last week in our columns about the real estate investment market. ‘business.

The “managing director” in charge of the investment business line of CBRE France referred to a “currently very contrasted market” and, above all, estimated that “in the end, we must pay attention to the immediacy of the figures because fund trends are pretty good. The capital is there. Consequently, for the next few months we believe that the dynamics of the investment markets should be a little less erratic and gradually stabilize and strengthen ”…

“After a 1is quarter 2021 dynamic (5.2 billion euros committed), volumes invested in commercial real estate in France slowed significantly in the 2th quarter with only 3.6 billion euros invested ”also notes BNP Parias Real Estate. But Olivier Ambrosiali, Deputy Managing Director, in charge of the sales and investment division of BNP Paribas Real Estate Transaction France, anticipates that “with the acceleration of cases being sold, the volumes invested in commercial real estate in France could get closer to the threshold of 30 billion euros in 2021 ”…

Likewise at JLL, Stephan von Barczy underlines that “this drop in activity was expected, a certain number of marketing campaigns, notably from French real estate companies, not having been able to materialize at the end of 2020. The market has failed. , moreover, could not find its normal functioning, the Mipim having again been canceled this year.

Broadly stable, “prime” yields should come under downward pressure in the second half of the year on certain asset classes. This is the case for logistics, with rates close to 3.50% (a loss of 200 basis points in barely five years) or even offices in certain areas of Paris outside the CBD or the inner suburbs. This squeeze is explained by the attraction of secured assets, the limited supply of which is struggling to satisfy the appetite of investors. Competition for the best assets is all the stronger since, unlike previous crises, foreign players are very present.
