CBRE recorded £274m of investment into the UK's multifamily sector in Q4 2019. This brought total investment in 2019 to £2.4bn.

Although this is lower than 2018, it nonetheless illustrates continued strong demand for the sector. The figures also mask the fact that there is currently a further £1.5bn of deals under offer.

Our Outlook for 2020 is optimistic. December's General Election likely weighed on investment in Q4. However, investors will be buoyed now that this element of uncertainty has been removed. We believe that the strong level of investment we forecast at the start of 2019 will be realised, and surpassed, in 2020.
