Property investors within and outside the Netherlands pumped a record €19.5bnn into Dutch bricks and mortar last year, according to calculations by property advisory group CBRE.

This makes the Netherlands one of the best performing property investment markets, CBRE said, adding that the prospects for 2018 are also favourable.

In 2016, investors put €14bn into Dutch property, which was a record at the time. Some 70% of last year’s purchases were made by foreign investors and 30% of the transactions were between foreign companies.

‘This illustrates how Dutch real estate is now being traded in a global marketplace, by international players,’ CBRE said.

Hotels, healthcare and residential property gained in popularity in 2017, alongside the more traditional investments in offices, shops and logistics parks, CBRE said.
