The State of International Investment in U.S. CRE

Posted on August 21, 2019

Overseas investors made up 16 percent of commercial real estate (CRE) deal volume in 2018, pumping more than $92 billion into U.S. commercial properties through the end of the year, according to Real Capital Analytics (RCA). The majority of foreign capital (34 percent) went to retail properties, including restaurants, grocery and convenience stores and banks, primarily in secondary markets. Although global trade tensions have had a slight impact on international investment during the first half of 2019, a robust U.S. economy and the long-term nature of CRE investments continue to maintain their safe-haven status and attract foreign capital into U.S. commercial properties.
