The private equity real estate market focused on commercial real estate saw $6.1B worth of investments in Q1 of 2017, down from almost $15B just last year according to Costar Group. Private Equity (PE) buyers showed a preference for office property, multifamily, retail, and industrial in that order according to purchase volume. PE sellers unloaded mainly multifamily and industrial properties with sales across all sectors of commercial real estate totaling $7.9B. Preqin, an alternative assets industry information provider, noted that fundraising had also slowed down from $26B in Q1 of 2016, and $32B in Q4 of 2016 to  about $16B in Q1 of 2017. About 58% of funds currently in the market are working to raise additional capital, up to $107B, with a goal of investing primarily in North America.
