After the record 3.2 billion euro traded last year, retail real estate remains robust in 2019, as confirmed by the latest research from Savills.



Despite the expected decrease compared to the historical amounts invested in 2018, all points to the market closing 2019 with a commercial investment volume 27% above the average registered in the last five years.

«In Portugal, the amounts reached in 2018 set a new historical record. For 2019 and despite the expected decrease in real estate investment, the market will keep attracting international investors, who are now set on diversifying their portfolios and looking towards smaller markets, with good prospects of return», observes Alexandra Gomes, Senior Analyst Research Department at Savills Portugal.

According to the analyst, «the acquisition of terrains for developing alternative projects will be one of the major trends in 2019».
