About the conference

What’s behind it and where’s it going?

The real estate market is facing significant changes, affected by rising construction costs, economic turbulence, regional geopolitical risks, etc. Availability and cost of financing also play an important role in shaping the commercial real estate outlook. The global pandemic has additionally accelerated changes in consumer behavior, which will impact the real estate market.

In recent years, Europe has witnessed dramatic growth in multi-family housing investment. This is driven by a rise in international capital and a changing capital base. Multi-family housing is now the largest asset class in the European real estate investment market, confirming the noise coming out of the listed sector and proving that investors are increasingly seeing multi-family as a safer bet.  From a geographical point of view, it seems that investors are increasingly focused on core markets. However, higher yields may attract more and more investors to the Baltic region.

With a lack of residential supply, which does not correspond to the peaking demand, prices in the Baltics have skyrocketed. Other factors have also influenced growth, including but not limited to, delayed construction permits, new infrastructure costs, increasing purchasing power, the attractive debt financing environment, and price speculation in the market. Demand for housing in the primary market is so high that developers are no longer able to meet it. There is evidence of acquisition from plans prior to the practical completion of buildings, as well as switching demand, even for secondary locations. With rent growth lagging behind inflation rates, the residential rental market is expected to show significant gains soon. More and more developers and investors are considering co-living and micro-living concepts in the Baltic region, as well.

Hotels have also been a widely discussed asset class. While tourism was highly affected by the pandemic, the sector’s recovery positively correlated with the ease of restrictions. Therefore, investment in hotel development was quite active.
