(PRWeb UK) September 15, 2010
Although finance is slowly returning to the market, its scarce availability is limiting the possibilities of investors in Belgium’s property market. A two-tier market prevails, with institutional investors targeting core prime assets and private investors aiming for more opportunistic purchases.
Belgian investors continue to dominate the domestic investment market, acquiring 59% of total assets sold so far this year, but the market is seeing the return of UK investors.
Prime office, retail and logistic capital values remain stable compared to H2 2009 while yield compression kicks in again for the core market segments.
King Sturge is releasing its latest research report on the investment market of Belgium.
Both office and industrial sectors are covered, the report also considers the effects of rents and take-up on the market’s outlook and it contains a summary of 2010’s most significant transactions so far.
