Strong Q1 Investment Boosted by Foreign Buyers


Net-lease investment volume increased by 34.6% to $78.9 billion for the year ending Q1 2020—the highest four-quarter total on record—as investors sought attractive yield at lower risk than other commercial real estate assets. Q1 volume ticked up 1.0% year-over-year to $13.2 billion. However, volume is expected to drop in Q2 due to the economic fallout from COVID-19.
