Shortage of properties for sale in Czechia versus huge demand among investors

A total of 260 million euros was invested in commercial properties in Czechia in the first quarter of this year; this is roughly 9% less than in the same period last year. Following a period of waiting, the mood among investors is optimistic again, with great interest in buying and a high amount of capital on the market. Nevertheless, transaction activity is low – there is a shortage of real properties for sale. The development in Prague is low across the sectors. This can be a benefit for those seeking to buy – new projects face low competition. In effect, investors’ demand for Prague is huge and logistic properties are an obvious favourite. With almost no vacancy, rents are growing steeply, thus reducing yield and pushing prices dramatically upwards.
