About 1/3 of global capital that are available for investment for the commercial industry would be invested in the U.S commercial real estate, this is according to a new research done by DTZ Research, a subsidiary of real estate firm DTZ. The research estimated about $97 billion will be invested in the U.S commercial real estate for the year 2011.
The report was launched last October 13, 2010 and it stated that the $97 billion represents 54 percent increase from its December 2009’s estimate for the U.S commercial real estate.
Globally, DTZ’s Great Wall of Money report estimates about $281 billion of capital will be available and to be invested in the global real estate market for next year—2011, which represents a 22 percent increase from its 2009 estimate.
Associate Director of Forecasting & Strategy at DTZ and author of the report, Nigel Almond say that the recent charm that the U.S commercial real estate exudes is a far-cry from last year’s situation.
Almond also said that U.S commercial real estate and most U.S markets were mostly cold, and it has not witnessed the volumes of transactions in the Asia Pacific and Europe.
The research also shows that both Europe and the Asia Pacific would be targeted with higher share of capital investments, compared to the amount of investments these regions have seen before.
According to DTZ Research’s Global Head, Hans Vrensen, the recent level of capital volumes that are targeting the ream estate market will continue to increase in terns of global transaction for 2011. However, those who will invest in particular countries will specifically choose the U.S commercial real estate.
