by Ákos Budai
The number of transactions on the Hungarian housing market totalled 128,386 last year, down by about 5% compared to 2015.

House prices grow rapidly in CEE

by Ákos Budai
Central and Eastern European housing markets are over the crisis and prices have once again begun to rise. The general upswing, observed on European housing markets, is supported by a number of factors. Following the economic crisis, GDP has begun to grow once again in most countries and the interest environment is also favourable to borrowing.
