"With a transaction volume of €2.6bn, the third quarter yielded the lowest level of investment of any quarter in the current year. Investment during the first nine months of 2018 totalled almost €11.3bn, representing an increase of 8% compared with the corresponding period last year. The increase in the transaction volume is (still), to a large extent, attributable to price rather than volume. The average price per apartment in the A-cities has even exceeded the €200,000 mark for the first time. This recordhigh price is largely attributable to the fact that development acquisitions have accounted for more than a third of the overall transaction volume in the A-cities during the year to date.A separate analysis of purchases of developments and existing property reveals that prices in both segments have only increased marginally, i.e. by less than 5% compared with last year."
