Germany's population is ageing; its number of care-dependent people will rise substantially in the coming years. There is a great need for expansion and renovation in Germany's care accommodations, if demand is to be met. With this demographic shift—as well as declining yields on traditional assets and health properties’ increased resistance to the business cycle—investor interest in this asset class has increased significantly, and the market is expected to continue to grow.
Fiery finale – strong Q4 ends record breaking year in hotels
The European Hotels market has eclipsed the €20 billion threshold of investment predicted in 2015 by €2.8 billion (totalling €22.8bn), an increase of 79% Y-o-Y. A monumental fourth quarter saw 31% (€6.946bn) of capital allocated to hotels, an increase of 101% versus Q4 2014 with Western European markets leading the activity, reports CBRE Hotels.
The sector is now set to transition into mainstream property investment after the hotels share of European real estate investment has increased by 6% since the last market peak in 2007. Recent confidence has been fuelled by the strength of the sector across many of the key Western European markets, in particular, the UK with €9.3 billion of investment in 2015 (+134% Y-o-Y), Germany €4.4 billion (+47% Y-o-Y) and France €2 billion (+96% Y-o-Y).
