Asian Investors Lead International Commercial Investment in U.S. and Canada, says NAR Survey

International investment in commercial real estate is dominated by Asian interests in bothCanadaand the U.S., according to anew surveyfrom the Richard J. Rosenthal Center for Real Estate Studies at REALTORUniversity and the National Association of Realtors. The survey found that 47 percent of Canadian respondents and 41 percent of those in the U.S. indicated that their international clients were from Asian countries. Commercial real estate has become a global industry, and Realtorsfrom across the U.S. andCanadanow regularly serve clients from all over the world, said NAR PresidentChris Polychron, executive broker with 1stChoice Realty inHot Springs, Ark.This survey proves the fact that while all real estate is local, not all investors are local. The survey was done in collaboration with the Canadian Real Estate Association and with assistance from the CCIM Institute and Institute of Real Estate Managers. Nearly 3,000 Realtorsanswered questions about their international commercial clients and the perceived changes they see in the demand for and utilization of office space. According to the survey, 45 percent of Realtorswho practice commercial real estate inCanadanoted an increase in international clients. Similarly in the U.S., more than a third of responders, 36 percent, observed an increase in international investment. The survey found that in the U.S., 22.5 percent of international clients came fromEurope, 21 percent fromLatin Americaand 20 percent from theMiddle East. InCanada, Realtorssaid 18 percent of international commercial real estate investment came from theMiddle East, 17 percent fromEuropeand 5 percent fromLatin America. It is important to note that the heaviest cross-border investment in commercial real estate continues to be between the U.S. andCanada. International investors brought significant capital intoNorth America, nearly$13 billionin the latter half of 2014. Investors fromAsiainvested$5.7 billionin real estate,$4.8 billioncame fromEurope,$1 billioncame from Oceania and$390 millioncame from Latin American investors. The survey also found a changing demand for office space in both the U.S, andCanada. Commercial clients are seeking more flexible office spaces, reducing the amount of personal space for workers and increasing the amount of communal space; 40 percent of Canadian respondents and 45 percent in the U.S. said their clients are looking for more open space in their offices. The location of offices spaces is also seeing a shift. InCanada, a majority of investors is looking at property in metropolitan areas with populations of more than 1 million. In the U.S., however, investors have begun moving away from larger markets into secondary and tertiary markets; more than one-third of U.S. respondents reported investors are interested in markets with populations less than 750,000.
