Czech Republic and Slovakia ̶ Real estate markets profiting from the search for yield
With interest rates extremely low and in some cases negative, real estate remains an attractive asset class – a fact that has also benefited the commercial property markets in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
Commercial real estate markets in the Czech Republic and Slovakia registered new record investment levels last year. A trend which continued in the first quarter 2017 in the Czech Republic. Solid economic growth in both countries is bolstering property markets. Real GDP growth especially in Slovakia is significantly higher than that of the eurozone. Both real estate markets are by now classified as transparent and offer still relatively attractive yields.
In our new Real Estate Country Facts Austria, we are not just looking at the investment market, but also provide you in the usual way with a review of economic activity, residential real estate and the office and retail markets.
