Residential segment

Housing prices during 2Q19 remained flat, experiencing a year-on-year rate of +3.1%, similar to those recorded in 2018.

Logistics/Industrial segment

It is one of the areas of the real estate sector that maintains the interest of investors, mainly in Madrid and Barcelona, although operations are beginning to be seen in other places such as Valencia and Zaragoza.

Office segment

Segment with the greatest impact in terms of investment (40%).

Retail segment

It is the only segment that shows signs of weakness, especially Shopping Malls, due to their time to readapt to new demand needs and new formats.

Hotel segment

This real estate asset maintains the dynamism of the last two years, both in terms of income and supply.
