Arnold Investments
@ EXPO REAL 2023

Munich, 5 October 2023 - “In times of change, Expo Real once again confirms how important personal exchange is for the real estate industry”, says Markus Arnold, CEO and sole owner of Arnold Investments. This is also the reason why the company is on site with an international team from ten countries and an unchanged large exhibition stand.

“The discussions that have taken place so far at the fair give rise to cautious optimism, so we hope for a similar development to that after the MIPIM in Cannes last March. There we were able to initiate promising sales, many of which we have already closed. Contrary to the current market situation, we had the most successful third quarter since our foundation with a transaction volume of around 200 million euros. We are benefiting from our strong focus on off-market deals at the moment”, continues Arnold.

“Interest is generally there and is reflected in over 450 appointments scheduled here at our booth. Discussions also confirm that, due to the current challenges, properties will continue to be examined much longer and more closely”, says Arnold, referring to the subdued mood, particularly on the German investment market. The market situation in southern European countries, however, is significantly better. Both Spain and Portugal as well as Italy – all markets covered by branches of Arnold Investments – were able to maintain or even expand their investment volumes.

Despite the current uncertainty among market participants, the experience of most attractive returns in the past years has led to a significant increase of interest among high-equity individuals. “The run on hand-picked top properties has already begun”, reports Arnold. Particular focus is set on residential properties, solid commercial properties and attractive hotel investments. An increasingly important basis for decision-making in the real estate business is a profound market analysis, which the company offers quarterly on all of Arnold Investments’ markets and the European Union.
