The indicators of the current period are given in comparison with last year. By 7 %, compared with the previous year, investments in trade real estate in the markets of all countries except Ireland and Great Britain increased.
The company’s specialists conducted a study, according to which in 2011 437 transactions were registered in European countries. All of them were somehow connected with trade real estate, for example, such as a store of ancient things.
The leading positions on this parameter in the list of all countries are occupied by Russia, Germany and France. 20% of the total number of transactions falls on the share of Germany. Russia and France are a little behind in terms of indicators.
The first place in popularity is occupied by shopping centers. Transactions associated with them occupy the lion’s share of the total number of European transactions in this area.
In second place are trading and worshiping premises. Although, last year, their percentage was much higher. General indicators allow us to say with confidence that real estate transactions remain the most common type of trade operations.
