The real estate investment market in Italy shows encouraging signs in the last quarter of 2018 in which real estate sales reached 3.3 billion euro, the highest value compared to the previous quarters, although down 9.1% compared to the analogue quarter of 2017.

In 2018, according to Prelios Group Market Research, the corporate and retail sectors confirmed their performance, with 5.5 billion euros investments, and representing the 65.6% of the transaction volume.

Despite the 3.3 billion euros reached by the directional sector, the retail sector confirmed its moment of expansion, recording 2.3 billion euros, mainly driven by the shopping centre segment which reached 1.1 billion euros with an annual growth 24.9%.
