According to a report from the multinational auditing network PwC, about the 2018 trends in the European property market, Copenhagen and Stockholm are ranked among the top ten as the best markets to invest in.
Political stability, growing economy and cities that focus on development and attractiveness characterize Europe’s property market. By 2018, it is expected that most of its major markets are going very well, according to PwC’s report ”Emerging Trends in Real Estate – Europe 2018”, where the best markets to invest in are ranked.
Copenhagen gets the second position in the ten-list together with Frankfurt, thanks to a combination of the city’s high employment growth, increased tourism and a high quality of life.
The rate of investment in Copenhagen has increased steadily alongside the employment rate and the country’s economic recovery. Investors are interested in all types of real estate in the city – senior and student housing and everything in between. The report highlights student housing to be a sector to keep a close eye on.
”The flow of capital into Denmark this year has increased significantly, very much in the residential market” says one Nordics specialist in the report.
Stockholm takes place number eight, thanks to its investment market, which has been seen as one of Europe’s most liquid and busiest. Add a strong economy, political stability and Europe’s fastest growing population. In the last three years, investments in Stockholm have hit record by record, plus most municipalities around the capital are expanding.
Copenhagen and Stockholm are, in short, important markets to keep in mind in 2018.
