European Real Estate Market Outlook

Business sentiment in the eurozone has remained stable since the UK’s referendum vote, with the immediate impact largely confined to the UK economy.

Property market yields have continued to trend down in Europe and this combined with very low bond yields supports the return outlook and the investment case for investors in the region.

Asia Pacific Real Estate Market Outlook
