Boston Metro commercial real estate remains a top choice for global investors in 2022 and beyond, according to a survey conducted by the Association of Foreign Investors in Real Estate. Respondents to the survey said their top U.S. metros for investment were Atlanta, Boston, Austin, Dallas, Seattle and New York. Boston and Austin are tied for second place, closely following the #1 choice of Atlanta.
Global investment interests in U.S. commercial real estate are well-diversified. The most popular asset categories include multi-family properties, life science and lab space, medical buildings and self-storage facilities. Foreign investors are also active in senior housing, the hospitality sector and retail.
While many U.S. cities offer plenty of investment opportunities, the survey states that the top metros offer high-quality assets, as well as commercial real estate variety and an ease of doing business. Income return on investment also scores highly in the top cities.
Global investors are not immune to market headwinds, however. The survey revealed concerns about U.S. inflation, rising interest rates and slow return-to-office plans by major employers. Overall, the general sentiment is positive, though cautious. Quality investments that are “evergreen” against changing economies are currently driving the market. This is creating a degree of investor competition for choice properties, which helps support commercial real estate values in Boston and other top cities.
