COVID-19 set to stop European housing price growth

by Property Forum
New housing has become more expensive in most European countries over the last years, including 2019.

Experts in the residential real estate market expected the growth trend to continue in 2020, but they became less optimistic in the context of COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, in almost half of participating countries, the residential market is expected to stagnate this year in terms of price and experts in only six countries have positive expectations.

The uncertainty of the new and unprecedented situation has impacted all real estate sectors to a lesser or greater extent.

Contrary to appearances, this type of accommodation where in addition to sharing space residents also share a set of interests and values may be an easier and more enjoyable way of staying in quarantine, especially for lonely people and those living far from their families.
