Real estate and online retail

Will the boom in online retailing lead to a bust in retail real estate?

Not necessarily as the growth in multi-channel retail shows. We can help guide the real estate investor as retail enters the next stage in its evolution.

The multi-channel consumer determines trends in retail real estate

The boom in online shopping has fundamentally shaken up the retail sector and in so doing, has also changed the game for retail real estate. Although traditional retail channels linked to physical sites have suffered during the financial crisis while online has grown, the picture is not as black and white as it might appear.

New retail concepts such as Click & Collect have shown that the future of retail is most definitely multi-channel providing an opportunity for retail real estate investors.
