Why invest in continental European real estate markets?

There are four principal reasons:

  • European real estate markets are large, with significant liquidity and good levels of transparency.
  • Europe’s economy is finally turning the corner and government finances are improving.
  • GDP for a number of key cities and companies is at two to three times the average of the eurozone, meaning investors can pick locations that could offer superior growth.
  • European real estate offers an income return higher than is available in many other Western markets, as well as providing protection from inflation.
