The volume of investment in commercial real estate in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) in 2022 was approximately 10.7 billion euros. Although this is a year-on-year decrease of only 3.3%, compared to the situation before the pandemic, it is a reduction of more than 20%. At the same time, domestic capital was the most active with a 38% share of total transaction volumes. In the first half of 2023, commercial real estate markets will remain subdued due to significantly higher financing costs and the subsequent price correction currently taking place in both CEE and many other regions. Colliers experts estimate that in 2023 investment volumes in CEE could reach between 7.0 and 10.0 billion euros. This follows from a study by Colliers, a leader in the provision of diversified professional services in the field of commercial real estate and investment management.

An office building today is not just a reinforced concrete skeleton filled with glass panels. The building itself and its equipment enable the use of functions unsuspected at first glance, which provide a new dimension of comfort to its users. They allow you to adjust the temperature or the color of the light in the room, rebuild your office according to your wishes or find a colleague without running around the office.

The construction, operation, financing, development and acquisition of commercial real estate in 2022 and beyond will continue to be affected by the prices of fuels, energy and building materials. Added to this are problems in supply chains, nearshoring operations and rapidly rising inflation. The Colliers CEE Investment Scene 2021/2022 study predicts that these factors will have a direct impact on sales prices and rents.
