Our KPMG Real Estate team has identified main global trends on the real estate market:

Higher demand for flexible offices and co-working space.

Corporates are recognizing that their estate is a key part of their employee’s workplace experience and a way of differentiating themselves in the war on talent and so are investing in wellbeing facilities, staff cafés and flexible working technology.

The unstoppable rise of property as a service to meet intensified customer demands.

Landlords should also seek to ensure that their buildings remain attractive to their customer base. Today´s customers have more information at their disposal, they demand more loudly their needs to be met and when they do not find what they want, they turn to competition. This also applies to the real estate sector. Demand for technology or emphasis on environmental aspects is becoming a standard.

Implementing of technologies based on data analytics (PropTech) that enable to make smarter, faster, data-driven decisions.

Effective use of technology to collect and analyze data about the building and its occupiers will improve the way an organization can segment and communicate with its customers, while allowing organizations to enhance the customer experience.

According to Marc Leubner, Executive Director at KPMG Deal Advisory, the following trends have been identified in the Slovak real estate market:

  • Enough capital and appetite to use it on sizeable real estate assets in and outside Slovakia. In the past 12 months KPMG participated in more than 6 real estate transactions and there is appetite for more. All of them represented investment in major real estate projects from the Slovak market reality perspective. 
  • Good performance in logistics and partially industrial are driving investments in the relevant types of real estate in Slovakia. The most common assets in the real estate market, which are subject to major transactions, are logistics centers and industrial buildings. This trend is likely to be caused by the current positive economic results of the companies occupying the properties. Therefore, there is also a higher demand for such type of real estate.
