Comment: The impact of the Brexit speech on Real Estate

Agate Freimane, Senior Investment Director at BrickVest:

  • “Theresa May’s announcement on the UK potentially leaving the single market will be well received by opportunistic investors in the UK and European real estate market and it will undoubtedly trigger more buying and lending opportunities.”
  • “Through our online real estate investment platform, we’re seeing strong demand for UK real estate, especially in the form of debt like investment opportunities which offer good risk adjusted returns in a volatile market environment.”
  • “Within real estate, we are likely to see the highest level of volatility from the office sector. Many of the international firms currently headquartered in the UK may put on hold any decisions over their long term office space requirements. If the UK no longer gives these firms access to the European market, they may need to spread their staff across multiple locations to more efficiently access both the UK and the European market.”
