Real Estate
As we journey further into 2024, the global real estate sector is poised for a year of innovation and adaptation. Pressures from persistent inflation and higher interest rates impacted growth in 2023, but with economic conditions remaining volatile but resilient, there are reasons to be optimistic that 2024 will show improvement.

The patterns of urbanisation and demographic shifts are reshaping the demand for real estate across various asset classes as cities worldwide experience a regeneration driven by sustainable development programmes, infrastructure investments, and a renewed focus on community-centric spaces. 

Our report aims to provide insight into the anticipated trends, opportunities, and challenges that will define the core real estate sectors within key European markets and serve as a valuable resource for industry professionals, investors, and stakeholders seeking to navigate the dynamic and ever-evolving real estate landscape in 2024.

International insights

real Insight, real Growth

France | Paris | DWF


Despite global health, political, and economic crises causing significant disruption in recent years, macroeconomic projections for 2024 are cautiously optimistic, with continuing drops in inflation a key factor in supporting modest growth.
Italy | Milan | DWF


While the outlook for the Italian economy remains uncertain, short-term inflation is following projections and there is cautious optimism that 2024 will bring increased stability in interest rates and lead investors to equity and higher yield potential across multiple asset classes. 

Poland | Warsaw | DWF


Government policy and macroeconomic conditions will influence how the real estate market reacts in 2024, but factors such as the anticipated fall in financing costs, growth in tech industries, and continued infrastructure development are positive signs. 
Spain | Madrid | DWF


Spain’s economy has rebounded strongly to outperform the Eurozone average, marked by steady GDP growth, and falling unemployment. However, the recovery of the real estate market is expected to be uneven and depend on demand for individual asset classes and regional preferences. 
UK | London | DWF


Persistent inflation and high interest rates have left investors facing lower asset values and higher financing costs, which has negatively impacted levels of commercial real estate investment and overall market stability.
