Colliers International is pleased to present the Capital Markets Australia & New Zealand Investment Review – Retail Year in Review and Outlook 2019.

Strong investor demand in the Australian retail property market continued throughout 2018, however, investment volumes were constrained by the lack of quality stock available on the market.  Despite this, high quality centres underpinned by strong catchments and trading performance continued to attract strong yields.

During Calendar Year 2018, we recorded $8.25 billion in retail property transactions (over $10 million), which is 12 per cent lower than the all time high recorded in the prior year.
