In Insider today:
‘Scottish property investment in the third quarter of 2018 reached £318.4 million, according to research from CBRE Scotland. The property firm said the total figure was achieved across 35 transactions with offices accounting for 29 per cent (£93.7 million), 20 per cent on industrial property (£63.8 million) and 23 per cent on retail deals (£72.16 million). The year-to-date investment in Scotland totals £1.51 billion which is a rise on the £1.26 billion [up 19.8%] average at this point. By the end the total is expected to top £2 billion.’
A strong Q4 finish is also expected confidently.
At risk of endless repetition, investment in property is real evidence of a real need for the physical space in which to do business because of a real demand for that business, in Scotland, in 2018 and at least for some time beyond that.
