Bayonne, NJ – Nearly 60% of real estate investors in Europe plan to buy more properties in 2023, reflecting improved market sentiment. Among the investors who plan on acquiring additional properties this year, 75% intend to exceed their total capital invested in 2022 by 10% minimum. However, there are some major differences between European countries even though all of them share EU regulations and policies.
French investors are the most pessimistic among the major market players, expecting a 20% decline in the general market activity. On the other hand massive decline in small business sector will flush the market with commercial real estate after massive bankruptcy filings are finally processed by the state institutions. Sudden and overwhelming supply increase will be disproportionate to the demand dropping average prices by a considerable margin. Grandzone Trading analysts expect the market prices to bounce back a bit over Q4 2023 – Q1 2024, though the persisting lockdown will affect the market normalization speed.
German market is expected to return to pre-pandemic level of investment capital inflow rather quickly. Last year investments volume was down by just 5% compared to a 17% decline in Europe as a whole. The Netherlands comes in second with France taking the third position in the investment market stability chart. It’s surprisingly good as it saw the biggest drop of activity among major European markets in 2022. The top ten also includes Sweden, GB, Norway, Switzerland, Denmark, Austria and Finland.
If vaccine distribution goes according to the WHO plan investment capital inflow is expected to increase by 5% roughly. All-time low loans rates have incentivized investors to increase their investments spending over the course of recent years. On the other hand a slight increase of interest rates is now inevitable and this will hardly be the only raise.
Definitely, a moderate growth will not jeopardize investment projections and will not make the market suddenly tank. In addition, the rise of interest rates reflects greater confidence in the customer and ongoing adaptation to the changes brought by the pandemic, so it may as well be an indirect sign of the recovering economy.
