Investors pumped nearly €21bn into the Dutch real estate market last year, a marginal rise on 2018, according to property advisory group CBRE.

Some 70% of all transactions took place away from the big four cities, particularly in Eindhoven, Deventer, Leeuwarden, Groningen and Zwolle. This is the largest proportion of total investments since 2011, CBRE said. Investments in distribution centres were one of the main cause.

Investments in housing hit a new record of €7.6bn, while investments in healthcare related property rose to €1.1bn.
