Key research findings
Investment in European multifamily rose 16% quarter-on-quarter to some €8 billion in Q2. This is in part down to a number of large deals in Germany; during the period the number of transactions rose by just 2%. Yet, activity remains below historic trends, the quarter was 32% the level of last year and so far 2023 is 47% below the same period in 2022.
Not all markets have responded the same way: the UK has risen 12% year-on-year, boosted by a rise in single family rental transactions, while Germany remains the largest market following a number of large REIT sales. However, all countries are grappling with high construction costs. Across Europe, JLL’s construction inflation index shows growth slowing in 2023, on average up 6% in Q2.
The effect of prolonged high costs is visible in reduced building, with permits having fallen 7% year-on-year. Heightened demand, boosted by immigration and high mortgage costs, is driving above-average rental growth of 10% in Europe, within double digit rises common, despite regulation in many markets. Affordability concerns highlight the value of quality, energy efficient buildings.
