Small Assets Account for 37 Percent of U.S. Multifamily Property Sales in 2019
According to global real estate consultant CBRE, there were 1,531 small U.S. property acquisitions in H1 2019, representing 36.7% of all multifamily asset purchases and revealing the scope of small asset buying. However, this purchase count is conservative since a notable number of transactions were under $2.5 million and therefore not included in the total. The percentage of small asset purchases in 2019 is on pace to exceed the 35% annual average since 2010. The expected gain is attributable to several factors, including healthy property market fundamentals, investors' search for new investment opportunities, new buyers entering the market and attractive financing options, says CBRE.
