The European Central Bank’s highly expansive monetary policy is boosting demand for real estate. With interest rates extremely low or negative, real estate assets are appealing since they offer significantly higher returns than alternatives such as government bonds. Strong demand has led to further tightening of property yields. Prime yields in the office segment reached a new low of around 4% in mid-2016, which limits the scope for a further decrease.
The UK’s decision to leave the EU has somewhat clouded the economic outlook for Austria. Nevertheless, our economists are still forecasting real GDP growth of 1.5% for 2016 – significantly above the 1% growth achieved in 2015. This means that the economic environment will remain relatively favorable for real estate investments.
Our latest edition of Real Estate Country Facts Austria presents not only an analysis of the investment market and the economic outlook, but also our customary overview of the housing office and retail markets.
