The final year of the decade will always be remembered for the incredible uncertainty created by the protracted Brexit negotiations and borderline ridiculous divisions across the UK's political parties, culminating in a landslide Conservative government majority and the definitive green light for Brexit.
In the context of this we were delighted to have done 93 deals totalling £85.88m, broken down as follows.
58% of all deals were done outside London and the South East, demonstrating our nationwide reach and outlook. And we have coverage in every region now and will continue investing in this manner in 2020 whilst pricing in London remains so strong.
80% of our deals were done on the private market (44% were off-market), rather than auction, showing our capability of operating quickly and quietly.
We continue to invest across all commercial sectors, and whilst Supermarket / convenience stores continue to be popular long-term investments, another strong area was Retail as this includes shops with flats which remain very popular amongst residential investors shifting to commercial.
2020 looks set to be an even stronger year as more buyers and sellers return to the market as certainty prevails. If you are interested in commercial property, register with us today by entering your details in the footer below.
