Savills Attractiveness Monitor ranks Eindhoven 5th most interesting Dutch city for real estate investors

09 November 2017

According to the report ‘City Special Eindhoven: G4 to G5' published today by international real estate advisor Savills, Eindhoven has become a strong top-five city that investors should definitely include - alongside the classic top-four cities of the Netherlands (Amsterdam, Utrecht, Rotterdam and The Hague) - in their ‘search for yields’.

To measure the attractiveness of cities for investors, Savills has created an attractiveness monitor that compares the top-ten municipalities of the Netherlands, based on inhabitants. The demographic and economic outlook of cities, combined with the real estate qualities per sector, are taken into account in this attractiveness monitor.

Results show that Amsterdam comes out on top and is in a class of its own, driven by the relatively high performance in terms of the  demographic and economic factors. Amsterdam is followed by the municipalities of Utrecht, Rotterdam and The Hague. Eindhoven is not far behind, scoring well on growth numbers of jobs, companies and GDP. Based on the real estate sectors, Eindhoven scores particularly well on residential and logistics. In addition to the attractiveness of the city, Eindhoven stands out thanks to its diversity in qualities. All the real estate sectors show their own qualities, especially when looking at growth numbers instead of absolute values. 

Jordy Kleemans, Head of Research & Consultancy at Savills Netherlands, says: “The attraction of Eindhoven to investors is that all sectors are performing well and that the market fundamentals are strong. Its appeal however is mainly driven by the industrial (high tech) sector.”

After a peak in 2012, when Philips sold their High Tech Campus for about € 425 million, office investments in Eindhoven have been stabilising at about € 50 million annually. The investment volume during the first three quarters of 2017 has in fact tripled, partly as a result of the recent Kennedytoren acquisition by Encore+ for approximately € 50 million.

Jordy Diepeveen, Head of Acquisitions at Savills Netherlands, comments: “We expect a total investment volume of around € 180 million in 2017, subject to a potential mega transaction that could completely change this total volume.”
