This is the lowest quarter experienced since quarter two in 2016.
On the other hand, the UK rose from 27 percent to 29 percent during the same time. As the UK has been able to sustain its ranking above 25 percent, it has won the favour of numerous investors.
Both the US and France saw gains of nearly a fifth (19 per cent) preferring the US over other regions and 18 percent now choose France as their location of choice which is up by four percent since quarter two in 2016.
Secondary cities are also seeing a steady improvement in the attractiveness of investment in that area as the figure has risen from 37 per cent in quarter three to 41 per cent by the end of 2017. These cities include Birmingham, Newcastle and Bristol.
Emmanuel Lumineau, CEO at BrickVest, said: “Our latest Barometer reveals that Germany is no longer the favoured destination for commercial real estate investment, contrary to its position in Q3 2017. Rather, the UK has once again become the most popular region for our investors.
